lyrics

There’s a place that I know
A beautiful garden where butterflies dance
On a warm winter day
On a bush by the fence
A single white rose in the dawn of her bloom
Has a secret to share

Take a step closer
And I will tell you exactly what happened to me

I had seen her before
Aroused from afar
And I knew it was only a matter of time
As I followed her home
I never expected that I would succumb
To the voice in my mind

It wasn’t me
What is wrong with me
It wasn’t me
What is wrong with me
It wasn’t me
What has happened to me?

Don’t be afraid
At the sight of the blade
Wait for the blood
It’s to late for the love that she offers in vain
The release of my rage is a runaway train
She finally falls to a state of repose
Until the blush in her cheek
Is as white as a rose
Nobody knows
At least not today
What if they come for me?

I must find a way to secure my retreat
So I lay out her body and cut her to pieces
I clean up the blood and the flesh and the bone
By the end of the day I take her away
To a place that I know
A beautiful garden where butterflies dance
On a warm winter day
In the dirt by the fence
A mound of fresh earth just below the white rose
Where my secret remains
Below the white rose where my secret remains
Below the white rose where my secret remains
