"Roses on White Lace" as written by and Robert William/cooper Athis....
I saw you in your wedding gown
The prettiest dress
I came into your room that night
And made such a mess
In my own way, I lovingly kiss the bride
With your ring in your hand
Your eyes and your mouth open wide

In my eyes
Blood drops look like roses on white lace
They won't wash away
In my mind they're roses on white lace
Straight from the heart
So dead upon the bed

You hurt me in the deepest way
I'm crippled inside
I took your evil skin away
It's all cut and dried
I saw you tonight and carefully took your hand
With some smears on my cheeks
I knew that you'd understand

In my eyes
Blood drops look like roses on white lace
They won't wash away
In my mind they're roses on white lace
Straight from the heart
So dead upon the bed
Still searching for your head

Oh, they're never going to find your face
It's hidden away
I found a very special place where you used to play
In my own way, I lovingly kiss the bride
With your ring in your hand
Your heart and your mouth open wide

In my eyes
Blood drops look like roses on white lace
They won't wash away
In my mind they're roses on white lace
Straight from the heart
Blood drops look like roses on white lace
Crimson and sweet Stained on the sheet
Roses on white lace Pretty in red, dripping and wet
Roses on white lace Spilled on the walls, dark in the hall
Roses on white lace
Roses on white lace
Roses on white lace

    Song MeaningThe entire album is about a serial killer, so naturally so is this song. The killer is torturing or his already killed a woman (On her wedding day) who has emotionally damaged him, most likley through a past relationship: "You hurt me in the deepest way, I'm crippled inside." It's clear that he's cut her skin up too: "I took your evil skin away, it's all cut and dry." When Alice says: "Oh, they're never gonna find you're face it's hidden away.", I would quite literally say he cut her face of and hid it somewhere of emotional value. You can think else but it dosn't seem anymore obvious to me.

    "They're never gonna find your face
