2010 Theme: Cemetery Gates

Taking our inspiration from the Pantera song of the same name [music video on YouTube… wow, that’s a lot of hair], this year’s theme is “Cemetery Gates”. Below are the lyrics of the song. The emphasized lines I’m thinking of using as epitaphs on gravestones in the front yard cemetery. I’ve also posted some inspiration photos.

Reverend, reverend,
Is this a conspiracy?
Crucified for no sins
No revenge… beneath me.
Lost within my plans for life,
It all seems so unreal.
Im a man cut in half in this world, [Would be a great place for half a zombie/groundbreaker, no?]
Left in my misery.

The reverend he turned to me
Without a tear in his eyes.
Its nothing new for him to see,
I didn’t ask him why.
I will remember…
The love our souls had sworn to make.
Now I watch the falling rain
All my mind can see now is your face.

Well I guess
You took my youth
And gave it all away.
Like the birth of a new found joy,
This love would end in rage…
And when she died
I couldnt cry,
The pride within my soul.
You left me incomplete
All alone as the memories now unfold.

Believe the word.
I will unlock my door…
And pass the cemetery gates.

Sometimes when Im alone,
I wonder aloud,
If you’re watching over me
Some place far abound.
I must reverse my life
I can’t live in the past.
Then set my soul free,
Belong to me at last.

Through all those complex years
I thought I was alone.
I didn’t care to look around
And make this world my own…
And when she died
I shouldve cried and spared myself some pain.
You left me incomplete,
All alone as the memories still remain.

The way we were,
The chance to save my soul…
And my concern is now in vain.
Believe the word,
I will unlock my door…
And pass the cemetery… gates

The way we were,
The chance to save my soul…
And my concern is now in vain.
Believe the word,
I will unlock my door…
And pass the cemetery…

Gates!

Gates!

Gates!
