Early Sunsets Over Monroeville

Information

Early Sunsets Over Monroeville is one of the two tracks on I Brought You My Bullets, Your Brought Me Your Love that Frank played on.

Frank played on two of tracks off the first record and one of them was Early Sunsets Over Monroeville. He just plays some great, great parts. A lot of the melody that he plays during the verses and the choruses is just, you know, absolutely beautiful and makes those songs work.
Ray Toro – Life On The Murder Scene – 2006

When we were doing the Monroeville, Ray was laying down his parts and as soon as he was done I took that they had recorded into a van, that had like no heat, outside of the studio and wrote what I was going to play.

Dawn Of The Dead

Dawn Of The Dead Movie Poster

Late dawns and early sunsets, just like my favorite scenes
Then holding hands and life was perfect, just like up on the screen
And the whole time while always giving
Counting your face among the living

Up and down escalators, pennies and colder fountains
Elevators and half price sales, trapped in by all these mountains
Running away and hiding with you
I never thought they’d get me here
Not knowing you’d change from just one bite
I fought them all off just to hold you close and tight

But does anyone notice?
But does anyone care?
And if I had the guts to put this to your head…
But would anything matter if you’re already dead?
And should I be shocked now, by the last thing you said?
Before I pull this trigger,
Your eyes vacant and stained

But does anyone notice?
But does anyone care?
And if I had the guts to put this to your head…
And would anything matter if you’re already dead?
And now should I be shocked, by the last thing you said?
Before I pull this trigger,
Your eyes vacant and stained…
When in saying you loved me,
Made things harder at best,
And these words changing nothing
As your body remains,
And there’s no room in this hell,
There’s no room in the next,
And our memories defeat us,
And I’ll end this direst

But does anyone notice?
But does anyone care?
And if I had the guts to put this to your head…
But does anything matter, if you’re already dead?
And should I be shocked now, by the last thing you said?
Before I pull this trigger,
Your eyes vacant and stained…
And in saying you loved me,
Made things harder at best,
And these words changing nothing
As your body remains,
And there’s no room in this hell,
There’s no room in the next,
But does anyone notice, theres a corpse in this bed?
