"The Camper Velourium III: Al the Killer" as written by and Claudio/todd Sanchez....
At birth given scars along tender heart liberties
In justice for awkward living situated casualties
They lay dead along your floor
Careful not to wake them they're sleeping
In the morrows good mourning
The dying will discard the wish to live

Let this colony know in the name of the dead we're coming

When I kill her, I'll have her
Die white girls, die white girls

You'll get nothing for something
Arise the hidden war of a dead song unsung
The night of your children's day
Beneath the surface sealed by the floors boarded up
Seal the lips of your voice with haste
And cower at the sounds as they make their way

Surprise speed and malice
The opposing break the surface hold ready

Will the killing veil love should the heroes play dumb
But killings no fun when the heroes are none

Bye, bye world

    General Commentthis song kicks ass and if you don't know the origin of the song it is from the graphic novel that coheed and cambria are centered around

    Al the killer is a phycopath that claudio meets who is mad at pretty much all women in general he doesn't literally want to kill all white girls

    General Commentaccording to claudio, the velorium camper is a ship of sorts and Al is the captain.


    i still think all three velorium songs are about a girl, regardless of what claudio says

    General CommentTo me, the Velourium Camper does center around one specific girl- The first two parts are about one lover, and Al seems to be the other. (i.e. the girl is a heartbreaker and bounces from lover to lover) I get chills listening to this, its so nightmarish. The intro gives quite a feeling of rolling maliciousness.

    General Commentim pretty sure the camper series are about Newo Ikking asking Al to take her to Earth to meet with Claudio cause she is sick of waiting for him to die. He rapes her and then falls in love with her but overhears a her phone conversation with Claudio and realizes he could never have her. thats when he decides to allow his murderous tendencies to surface. pretty straight forward.. immagine her saying "youll have me only over my dead body" then read the chorus. In the next song Claudio rescues her.

    General Comment'let this colony know in the name of the dead we're coming' is quite possibly my favorite line out of the entire album, just the way its sung.

    close behind would be 'I will kill you all' from The Crowing and 'pull the trigger and the nightmare stops' from Three Evils

    General CommentI think Al is in love with Newo Ikkin, but cos she doesn't love him, he gets made and kinda goes on a "If I can't have her, no one will!" rampage. This is just speculation on my part, I'm not sure of the whole story itself. In fact I have no idea what's going on for most of the time, but I do know that I really like the songs lots.

    General Comment'the night of your children's day
    beneath the surface sealed by the floors boarded up '
    is a reference to the fact that coheed buried the kids bodies under the floorboards of their house (as is found out in...junesong provision i think off the top of my head) and maybe al plans to emulate this?
