Black Wedding (3:31)

Cover of Here, Here and Here

From Here, Here and Here

Dia’s story about the song from their myspace blog:

I was reading a lot into theology. All of my friends from high school kept asking for my new address in L.A. so they could send me wedding invitations. They were all 19 or 20… I read Buddhist books. I loved them. I read many C.S. Lewis Christian books. I loved them. My best friend was Catholic. I asked her questions. All my friends who were getting married were Mormon. I asked them questions. Meg is Atheist. I asked her questions. Carlo is Christian. He has read the Bible many a time. I asked him Questions. I asked Nick. How the hell should I know he would say. That was the best answer I had heard all month. I was confused. I prayed a lot. I read a lot. I asked questions a lot. I started writing Black Wedding. Most people think it is a “cute little dance rock song.” It is the song about everything I believe. It is about my Apostasy. It is about my search for ascertainable fact. It is about people who feign their own religion…who bend their rules. -Honesty is good. But I can lie to Jack…because Jack lied to Jill- It is about parents who raise their kids on a certain religion without allowing them to explore their own ideas. Their family get togethers, educations, talks, which they would claim are not compulsory, but they are nothing short of coercive. It is about this idea: A girl raised in a Catholic family most likely will be Catholic. A girl raised in a Lutheran family will most likely be Lutheran. It is about people praying that their son’s baseball team will win, while human hunger is still present all across the nations.

You were unaware that diamonds came with debt
Ironic sure but that's the way it is
Got my vows off the Internet
You say crying weakens my immune system
