And now I think I know
what's on your mind
Your eyes melt through me and it's no surprise
I can become you
and through your eyes I'll watch you
Lie to me
step right over me
as I fall to my knees

Like a movie star
like kerosene
Your burning arrows sinking into me
You're my favorite ache inside
So put down that knife and come lie
Down with me
Step right over me
You can do anything your heart pleasures
You can do anything you want

Just like before
she'll bring me down into that place
We come together and erase
each other one more time

Step back as I set myself up for the kill
I might shoot myself in the foot while I swallow that pill
Stand right above us to unbreak my fall
Your sex with a razor and my blood tells all
Step back as I set myself up for the kill
Shoot myself in the foot while I swallow that pill
Stand right above us to unbreak my fall
Your sex with a razor and my blood tells all

Like a movie star
like kerosene
Burning in my eyes
I can feel you now
here I leave myself wide open now
I leave myself wide open now
It's all I ever knew

    General CommentKiller song. Definitely the craziest on American Paradox. I believe this song, along with so many others from Strung Out, is about a fucked up relationship. She continues to destroy him and he keeps coming back for more. He leaves himself wide open to be hurt over and over again. It's all he ever knew. I absolutely love these guys.

    General CommentI get the chills as i scream the song along with him. The way his voice can transfer from the blood tells all to like a movie star is amazing. I didnt hear it any of the times i saw them live, but he probably just wouldnt want his voice to go out after screaming his heart out on every leg of the tour.

    General CommentBest S.O. track, in my opinion... and I agree with urbanninja4 about what it's about.

    General CommentAgreed with The Phil, best S.O. track.

    The first time I heard it, I ended up playing it on repeat 5 or 6 times. It still kinda gives me the chills.

    General CommentIf you invert either the left and right channels and mix them together you can make out what is being sung under

    "Down with me
    Step right over me
    You can do anything your heart pleasures
    You can do anything you want"

    As far as I can make out (it's still kind of hard) it goes like

    "Everything you want from me
    so cut me up protect me you...

    Everything you want from me
    so cut me up protect me your way"
