Favorite Quote:
What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith


The room is white
Florescent light
Shiny floors
Friendly no more
It's burnished clean
And smells death-free
All I can see
Is blood on the walls
Blood on the walls

Blood on the walls
Blood on the walls

Pain and pleasure
Dirty treasure
Killing's done
By the blood-red sun
Here in the room
She died too soon
Take up the call
Blood on the walls
Blood on the walls

Happened last night
When the moon was bright
No one nearby
To hear her pitiful cries
I hear her now
Pain all around
Weeping sounds
They took her all
They took her all

Blood on the walls
Blood on the walls

Pain and pleasure
Dirty treasure
Killing's done
By the blood-red sun
Here in the room
She died too soon
Take up the call
Blood on the walls
Blood on the walls

She was just a child
Barely five feet high
Beautiful blue eyes
Take up the call
Blood on the walls
She was just thirteen
In the age between
Adult and still green
Take up the call
There's blood on the walls

Pain and pleasure
Dirty treasure
Killing's done
By the blood-red sun
Here in this room
She died to soon
Take up the call
Blood on the walls
Blood on the walls

Room is white
Burnished clean
Smells death-free
All I can see is
Blood on the walls
Blood-on-the-walls

This song is about the pointlessness and cruelty of rape and murder.
