"Bruiser (if Looks Could Kill)" as written by and Jerry Caiafa....
All I feel is pain it seems today
A dark angel leads me to evil far beyond the grave
Declares me a phantom demon I don't know
It just cannot be defied
At Hell this reflection stares at me
And then I lose my mind
It betrays me

Oh, In hell I'll burn in flames
Oh oh oh oh, If looks could kill then death would be my name
Oh oh oh oh, In hell I'll burn in flames
Oh oh oh oh, So come inside the fires feel

Angel of Death is bloodied now
He's the one inside
Tortured, scored that strike
Against the fear, it feeds the fire
Near me now, the demon's son
Bruiser I'm the one
Erase my soul for all your sins can never be undone
I can't contain it

Oh, In hell I'll burn in flames
Oh oh oh oh, If looks could kill then death would be my name
Oh oh oh oh, In hell I'll burn in flames
Oh oh oh oh, So come inside the fires feel the pain (whoa oh)
Feel the pain
The pain

Oh, In hell I'll burn in flames
Oh oh oh oh, If looks could kill then death would be my name (my name)
Oh oh oh oh, In hell I'll burn in flames
Oh oh oh oh, So come inside the fires feel the pain
Feel the pain
Feel the pain (whoa oh)
Feel the pain yeah
Feel the pain

    General CommentGreat song.

    "If looks could kill then death would be my name" is one hell of a line.

    General Commentdevilreggea hit it on the nose. This was written for the movie Bruiser (which wasn't all that good) along with another song, Fiend Without a Face. This song is definitely the better out of the 2, but let's get on to what it means.

    I personally just think it's about a guy who knows he's done wrong, and knows he's going to hell, but couldn't care less.

    But then again, it's a Misfits song. Most of these songs don't have much meaning behind them other than to be cult classics.

    General CommentFrom a music standpoint, it sounds like they took this song apart and used it for Descending Angel from Famous Monsters.
