Before the story begins, is it such a sin,
For me to take what's mine, until the end of time?
We were more than friends, before the story ends,
And I will take what's mine, create what
God would never design

Our love had been so strong for far too long,
I was weak with fear that
Something would go wrong,
Before the possibilities came true,
I took all possibility from you
Almost laughed myself to tears,
(Hahahaha! )
Conjuring her deepest fears
(Come here you fucking bitch! )

Must have stabbed her fifty fucking times,
I can't believe it,
Ripped her heart out right before her eyes,
Eyes over easy, eat it, eat it, eat it!

She was never this good in bed
Even when she was sleeping
Now she's just so perfect I've
Never been quite so fucking deep in

It goes on, and on, and on,
I can keep you lookin' young and preserved forever,
With a fountain to spray on your youth whenever

'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
And I know, I know it's not your time
But bye, bye.
And a word to the wise when the fire dies,
You think it's over but it's just begun
But baby don't cry


You had my heart, at least for the most part
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, we fell apart
Let's make a new start
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime (yeah)
But baby don't cry

Now possibilities I'd never considered,
Are occurring the likes of which I'd never heard,
Now an angry soul comes back from beyond the grave,
To repossess a body with which I'd misbehaved

Smiling right from ear to ear
Almost laughed herself to tears

Must have stabbed him fifty fucking times
I can't believe it
Ripped his heart out right before his eyes
Eyes over easy
Eat it, eat it, eat it

Now that it's done I realize the error of my ways
I must venture back to apologize from somewhere far beyond the grave


I gotta make up for what I've done
'Cause I was all up in a piece of heaven
While you burned in hell, no peace forever

'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
And I know, I know it's not your time
But bye, bye
And a word to the wise when the fire dies
You think it's over but it's just begun
But baby don't cry

You had my heart, at least for the most part
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, we fell apart
Let's make a new start
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime (yeah)
But baby don't cry

I will suffer for so long
(What will you do, not long enough)
To make it up to you
(I pray to God that you do)
I'll do whatever you want me to do
(Well then I'll grant you a chance)
And if it's not enough
(If it's not enough, If it's not enough)
If it's not enough
(Not enough)
Try again
(Try again)
And again
(And again)
Over and over again

We're coming back, coming back
We'll live forever, live forever
Let's have wedding, have a wedding
Let's start the killing, start the killing

Do you take this man in death for the rest of your un-natural life?
(Yes, I do.)
Do you take this woman in death for the rest of your un-natural life?
(I do)
I now pronounce you...

'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
And I know, I know it's not your time
But bye, bye
And a word to the wise when the fire dies
You think it's over but it's just begun
But baby don't cry

You had my heart, at least for the most part
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, we fell apart
Let's make a new start
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime yeah
But baby don't cry

    Well. Its about a guy and a chick he asks for her hand in marriage, she rejects him then he flips out and murders her (eats her heart and all that lovely stuff) then he has s* with her corpse (which is quite disturbing I find.) later, she comes back from the dead, and shes obviously pissed. So she kills him then they forgive each other(if it was me it would have been totally diffrent) oh and then. They get married! And go on a killing spree. The end. This song rocks basically oh yes. And they kill the priest which in my mind is an automatic go to hell ticket.

    First of all they came up with this song only cause they laid down all the instruments all the needed was lyrics so the got creative. Yea its about killing you significant other then screwing her remains but the structure is really good and jimmy sings really cool in this. Ah pinkly smooth. Good times. Anyway zacky sound friggin s*** in the creepy wedding ceremony. To all the haters the lyrics are to make you laugh and if you don't like it doesn't mean you should stop liking them. I'm fourteen and maturer then half of you. Wow. Its a song like it or not its got really great structure and mix of vocals ignore the lyrics listen to the instruments and vocals see if you like it then.
    R.I.P. Jimmy love and miss ya.

    This song is just about a man and a girl, he proposes to her, the girl denies (probably because she felt like she wanted to wait a little longer). The man gets upset, then flips out and ends up killing the girl. He stitches her up and hangs out with her just as if she was alive. Then the girl wakes up as a zombie and kills the man. He then turns into a zombie, comes up to the girl as a zombie, and asks for forgiveness to his carelessness. The girl accepts his apology, and they get married and live happily ever after.

    I love this guy, well I should say the whole group, but when I get in my car I take out my country cd that may be in there and search for the white cd with a black bat on it. I have only enjoyed country music since 1997 and prefer to listen only to that over any other. My husband would put this cd in while we were both in the car driving somewhere for a good 2-3 yrs when I finally vocalized my interest in who this band is and more important to me was the guy singing. I don't know who the main writer is for the band but I hope it's the singer. I feel his songs but I would get frustrated when I can't make out certain words in the song cuz it reads on paper like a poem or story no bullshit. Anyways, that's my cd now and can't wait to read dear god, lost, unbound etc. I can't believe how much I like this band. It's country and avenged sevenfold for me.
