She paints a pretty picture we can all adore
She's covered in razor lines and dynamite
You've shown me how to dissect your beating heart
And just how far these fake smiles can go
So glamorous (shattered like glass)
Fingers shoved to the back of your throat
For a little sex appeal, heaving
Don't forget to call the ambulance when your body hits the floor
So fucking perfect
Your execution will be televised
You threw it all away for a piece of the action
Vanity assassin
With cuts like a diamond and wrapped in plastic
The whole world is crushing on you
The whole world is watching you die
Enjoy living on top of the world
When you die knowing you lived your life on your knees
Die knowing you lived your life on your knees

    General CommentHahahaha... It's not about crystal meth. It's about people trying to make themselves look good by any means possible.

    "Fingers shoved to the back of your throat
    For a little sex appeal, heaving
    Don't forget to call the ambulance when your body hits the floor"

    It's about superficial people being just that, superficial. All they care about is their apperance and nothing more. They don't care what it takes to look a certain way... even if it means killing their bodies.

    it says the meaning of the song right under the lyrics."

    Wow, no shit?? *rolls eyes* This site is for personal interpretation of the lyrics... If you bought the album, you would know that after each of the songs lyrics in the sleeve, it gives a description of what the song is about. Still, who cares? Make the song mean something to you...

    General Commentall I know is the sound effect in the beginning and middle of the song are from the movie "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", the 2004 remake.

    If you got the DVD, pop it in and the sond effect is right at the start of the movie.

    General Commentlet me just say that rem nev is my favorite band ever.

    i think this song is about eating disorders.trying so fucking hard to be perfect but in the end it doesnt really matter cuz everyone knows your still nothing.

    "Die knowing you lived your life on your knees"

    nothing materialistic matters in the end. ppl dont remember you for that. they remember you for what you did with your life, and this person was always living rock bottom.
