"If Looks Could Kill" as written by Thomas H Denney, Alexander Thomas Shelnutt, Neil S Westfall, Joshua Steven Woodard and Jeremy Wade Mckinnon....
Something's wrong and it's not me for once
And I know you'll call me crazy
But I hate the way you look straight through me
What have I don't that's so wrong?
Remember me when I'm so far from your reach
And then you'll know you had your chance
Take one more glance, and that's the end of our romance
You've turned your back on me for the last time
Remember when we use to be friends?
Nothing could ever go wrong, or so we thought
But I guess you've changed a lot since we were young
Times will change, and there's nothing I can say to right all of your wrongs
Just grow up, and pray we'll keep in touch
You've turned your back on me for the last time
I still dream of the day that I watched you choke
They'll act like I'm so crazy when they find you dead on my floor
Right now
Right now
I'd say something went wrong in our lives
And I pray that God saves us before we die

He's everything that you could never be
He's everything that you could never be
He's everything that you could never be
He's everything that you could never be
He's everything that you could never be
He's everything that you could never be

Right now
Right now
Right now
I'd say something went wrong in our lives
And I pray that God saves us before we die

Slowly die

    General CommentI am quite surprised to see no one has commented this song as of yet, considering it's one of the gems of this album. Many will, and do, take this as a "girlfriend" or "love of his life" that changed. Pretty explanatory, huh. But, i think he is talking about more than one, though Jeremy writes singularly, i think he means all his old loves in general, since he cant call out each individual. He is deeply hurt and saddened, but he knows no matter what, he has the power of God. Which can diminish the most brute of pains. As he states "He’s everything that you could never be" clearly shows his point. And it will be well taken. Oh, and the 3 piece breakdown is a plus too.

    General CommentIt could be me, but for some reason i hear. "You've turned your back on me for the very last time."

    Anyone else hear that? You gotta listen closely, it sound like there's another word between "For" and "Last" and to me it sounds like, and would make sense if it was "Very"
