Interesting article.
http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/ne ... 3356.story

"The last song recorded was "Spider," taken from Shneider's nickname and written after a visit to her gravesite at Hollywood Forever. She was buried with a small stone painted by Harvey, beneath a grave-marker etched with the Eleven logo. As Johannes rested a palm on the gravestone, a tiny spider hopped into his hand, inspiring the lyrics: "We're spinning these webs, to trap all our dreams.""

Endless Eyes:

same at Pukkelpop 2010

Oh my heart
That you stole so long ago
Has returned to me this day
So full and empty

Oh this dream
That we shared through all extremes
In a hunt for what it means
To heal by fire

Endless eyes
The immovable did bend
In the presence of your strength
In the gifted joy of your intent

It's killing me that I must go on living
Just to fill this cup of promise
With meaning
It's tearing me apart we're so connected
It's the you in me
Each day I'm resurrected

Truth and lies
Melt away when something's real
To be blinded by your eyes
That is so twisted

Never swayed
Look at all the seeds you layed
Shamelessly so unafraid
To face the devil

Endless eyes
The immovable did bend
In the presence of your strength
In the gifted joy of your intent

It's killing me that I must go on living
Just to fill this cup of promise
With meaning
It's tearing me apart we're so connected
It's the you in me
Each day I'm resurrected

Spider:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGaz9y1EtP0

Eleven white roses on a black granite slab
The beautiful face followed by the stab
I sit by the foot of many hearts' lament
All wondering still
Where the sun and moon went

Spider sweet spider
Jumped onto my hand
Spider sweet spider
Did I understand?
Spider sweet spider

Endless reflections in a room made of glass
The winners the losers all end
In the past
Love keeping track of every tiny attempt
At facing the monsters that
Ego has sent

Spider sweet spider
Jumped onto my hand
Spider sweet spider
Did I understand?

We're spinning these webs
To trap all our dreams
Entangle the notion
This is as it seems
It's just a prison that tumbles right down
With the force of a kiss
And a smile for a frown
Spider sweet spider
