lyrics

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,
But don't forget that if you pray for me I'll pray for you and cash flow too,
why not?
I said, if you pray for me I'll pray for you and cash flow too, why not?

It was a black wedding,
you could hear the organs not,
The violins or the words the pope was saying.
It was a black wedding,
you could hear the organs but,
No drunken story or real hallelujahs.
Dumb people swore they saw the devil,
While most prayed they wouldn't last a winter.
It was a black wedding,
Throw those blessings all around.

So,
you're finally viewing this at 5 foot 6.
It's not all roses like your mama said,
We're not spoon fed anymore.
So you gonna tell
All our kids I was an accident?
Ironic true,
but that's the way you act when you're upset
So let's take this outside.

We see our mirrors from outside,
And he said we are only pride,
We stay hidden all our lives.

It was a black wedding,
you could hear the organs not,
The violins or the words the pope was saying.
It was a black wedding,
you could hear the organs but,
No drunken story or real hallelujahs.
Dumb people swore they saw the devil.
But most prayed they wouldn't last a winter.
It was a black wedding,
Throw those blessings all around.

What else is there to know when our Bible's here?
What else is there to know when our Bible's here?
There are no lies to find when the page is bare
What else is there to know when your tax is shared?

Outside,
we're seeing mirrors from outside
And he said we are only pride
We stay hidden all our lives

It was a black wedding,
You could heard the organs,play
Words the pope was saying
It was a black wedding, you could hear the organs but,
No drunken story or real hallelujahs.

The gravedigger said it's his cathedral
We drank holy water like the wedding supper
It was a black wedding,
Throw those blessings all around
(what else is there to know when you're bibles here?)
It was a black wedding,
Throw those blessings all around
(What else is there to know when you're tax is shared?)
It was a black wedding,
Throw those blessings all around
