So basically, I had a basic idea for this song, but changed it a couple times today before finally making a final decision. I then wrote these lyrics in 20 minutes, a record time! They just all came to me. The story is about a girl who finds a 'place' where she can go and see her future (The Cemetary of Tears). She becomes so obsessed with it she can't do anything else. Every night she goes back to it and at the break of dawn she leaves. Until one night, she sees herself being killed. Now the Cemetary of Tears is not real, but is more or less a realm that she drifts into while she is asleep. The next night, she is murdered. This other realsm predicted her entire future for her so everything was perfect, but she ignored this vision, and it came true.

Cemetary of Tears
The need to know
What happened with life?
Past, present or future
Gun, car or knife

And as she walks with her feet off the ground
To a place not real
The only one who knows of it
But she knows how it makes her feel

To a place unknown
The cemetery of tears
A place where no one goes
A place of smoke and mirrors

The gate creaks open
As she walks on the stone
Entering an ancient ground
She feels the power of the throne

The pathway twists and turns
Only she knows the way
Nearer draws the middle
But nearer also dawns the day

To a place unknown
The cemetery of tears
A place where no one goes
A place of smoke and mirrors

Night after night
She looks into her life
A thousand thoughts forgotten
At the sight of a bloody knife

She enters one more time
Not knowing it is her last
So much for seeing her future
Stick with the present and the past
