"Valentine's Day" is the sixteenth track on the 2000 release Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death). The lyric "they'd remember this as Valentine's Day" was the key to finding a promotional website called ThisAsValentinesDay.com.

References to the previous Triptych albums can be found in the second verse. Theories speculate that the girl referenced in the song is Coma and the baby she carries is the Worm aka the Antichrist Superstar. These theories are, however, generally not accepted for it is widely believed that the album story lines have little connection other than concept.

Lyrics[edit]

    She was the color of T.V.
    Her mouth curled under like a metal snake
    Although Holy Wood was sad
    They'd remember this as Valentine's day
    
    Flies are waiting
    
    In the Shadow of the Valley of Death
    In the Shadow of the Valley of Death
    
    They slit our wrists and send us to heaven
    The first flower after the flood
    
    I saw that pregnant girl today
    She didn't know that it was dead inside
    Even though it was alive
    Some of us are really born to die
    
    Flies are waiting
    
    In the Shadow of the Valley of Death
    In the Shadow of the Valley of Death
    
    They slit our wrists and send us to heaven
    The first flower after the flood
    
    In the Shadow of the Valley of Death
    In the Shadow of the Valley of Death
