除了「Death is not the end」這首歌好聽，還有一首關於謀殺的情歌「Where the wild roses grow」。剛聽覺得很抒情甜蜜，描寫一對男女3天相遇的過程，Nick的歌聲透著安定的力量，而凱莉米洛的歌聲又有種墜入情網的深情，但聽到最後才發現這段相遇，男的只是為了將女的殺死，而原因是”All beauty must die”，當我看到歌詞寫著「他手中拿著石塊並對我微笑著」，他是要將她砸死嗎？我當場以為自己眼睛花了。美麗的都必須死去，這是什麼道理啊？但不能否認真是首好聽的另類黑色情歌。

They call me The Wild Rose
But my name was Elisa Day
Why they call me it I do not know
For my name was Elisa Day
From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
As she stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the color of the roses
They grew down the river, all bloody and wild
When he knocked on my door and entered the room
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
He wiped the tears that ran down my face
On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I’d seen
I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?"
On the second day he came with a single rose
Said: "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow?"
I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed
He said, "If I show you the roses will you follow?"
On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
As I kissed her goodbye, I said, "All beauty must die"
And I lent down and planted a rose between her teeth
