"Ione Skye" as written by Sean Thomas, Darren Cordeux, Joel Vanderuit and Karl Ammitzboll....
I went out last night to a place where
The beautiful give death stares
So cold, you can feel the ice form on your bones
Dressed up like you're in a movie
Your effort is amusing, tonight
But you'd look better if I was blind

Didn't you enjoy yourself?
They held you up and put us down
Let me know the next time you'll be here
So I can stay home

You're living like you're on TV
Like a protected species
Uh-oh, I would love to see you when you're old
Just like winter roses in bloom
I'll die before I'm like you
In time, they will all know just how hard you tired

Didn't you enjoy yourself
They held you up and put us down
Let me know the next time you'll be here
So I can stay home

Didn't you enjoy yourself
They held you up and put us down
Let me know the next time you'll be here
So I can stay home

So I can stay home

Stay there forever in your place
Where your friends are kinder to your face
Your clothes are all you have
And I'm sorry that your life's that bad

Stay there forever in your place
Where your friends are kinder to your face
Glamour is all you have
And I'm sorry that your life's that, I said,
You'll be here, so I can stay home

    General CommentThis song is about the people who are full of themselves... not neccessarily girlfriends, but anyone

    Karl says "Ione Sky was an actress in the 80's. She was meant to be the 'next big thing' and then hit drugs and kind of disappeared.. Just a metaphor for the song"

    they're probably just relating Ione Skye to the song lyrics

    General CommentThis song is self- explanatory, as I said about the last Kisschasy song I posted a comment about, but anyway. I think it's about someone who is so obsessed with their image they are shallow and less of a person for it. They are so obsessed with how they look they are tiresome and boring to be around. The guy who likes this girl is so fed up with this petty preoccupation he ends up saying no one likes you anyway, enjoy being beautiful because it does't mean anything.

    General CommentSong is about people who are so obbessed about looking good and are all about beauty that in the end thats all they have. And their "friends" are more about her looks than anything else.
