"Continuation" as written by and John Vanderslice....
How could the killer keep killing
Now that the killer's dead?

The killer's way was known to no one
And the telltale clues are locked
Inside the detective's head

He's been dead for days
Still killing us anyway

There is me and Rieger
And Thomson and Foley only
And Thomson and Foley don't fit the profile

Got a break in the case
Soon I'm going to make him
I'll wait until he kills again
Then I'm gonna come down

How could the killer keep killing
Now that the killer's dead?

So Detective Rieger stands alone
As the suspect killer, he was a good cop
But always a little off

Got a break in the case
Soon I'm going to make him
I'll wait until he kills again
Then I'm gonna come down

So I shadowed Rieger until
He became a part of me

After weeks of pursuit
We locked up in a feedback loop
He was following me too

    General CommentThere seems to be a lack of love for Mr. Vanderslice on this website. He is a genius and one of the purest song writers making music.

    I think this song follows a rather old cliche but still awesome...THE KILLER IS ME!

    General CommentIf it sounds a little "cliche", it's because it's based off a movie. This is a snip from an interview JV did with BetterPropaganda :

    "I wrote "Continuation" right after seeing Lars Von Trier's Element of Crime. It's his first feature, and it concerns a detective trying to piece together an unsolved series of murders. A hunted serial killer dies in a car crash, and his specific ways of killing are only known to the detectives on the case. So when more bodies turn up with those telltale signs of the deceased serial killer, the only suspects are other detectives who know the clues."
