"...And We All Have a Hell" as written by Matt Good, Travis Brandon Richter, Derek Alan Bloom and Sonny Moore....
Every day gets worse,
Locked in a vice my thoughts perverse
You must wonder why I look at you that way
Tonight ill make my way into your house
I must; I'm lusting for your body
Skin looks tight, think I just might have
To take a bite, but I know one will turn
To three or four or more my little whore

Tonight, tonight
She's not alone (can you taste the wicked in the room?)
Bobbysoxer so pure, so young
(By morning her soul will be gone, gone, gone.)

I did a beautiful thing,
Relax baby, that's a good girl
You're like my work of art
I can control, I can contort any
Position that I wish,
I make my fantasy reality
Hold still, it will be over soon

Tonight, tonight
She's not alone (can you taste the wicked in the room?)
Bobbysoxer so pure, so young
(By morning her soul will be gone)

I blend with the walls so I won't be seen
My love, you smell so..
I took one good look,
And I followed you home

Tonight, tonight
She's not alone (can you taste the wicked in the room?)
Bobbysoxer so pure, so young
(By morning her soul will be gone)

    General CommentI really really doubt it is about vampiracy. Though it's a plausible theory, I think it's safe to say that this is more about rape than a vampire. I really doubt FFTL is into that whole vampire thing that deep anyway.

    What I think:

    ---
    Every day gets worse,
    Locked in a vice my thoughts perverse
    You must wonder why I look at you that way
    ---

    He sees her every day and every day he wants her more. "Locked in a vice my thoughts perverse" I dont know what he means by vice because vice means "replacement." Perhaps he had been with her once, and she broke up with him, but he wasn't done with her yet. He wanted her back, and wanted her back for more than just relationship purposes. Perhaps he feels that if he can't have all of her, no one else can.
    "You must wonder why I look at you that way" self explanatory and supports the theory that he knew her.

    ---
    Tonight ill make my way into your house
    I must; I'm lusting for your body
    Skin looks tight, think I just might have
    To take a bite,
    ---

    He's in the process now of sneaking into her house, following her home because he wants her for her body. If it was vampiric why would he be lusting for her "body"? Body means the body in all forms not just one part. "To take a bite" is just a sexual innuendo of "I want to taste you." Skin so tight may imply that she was wearing tight clothing, maybe revealing a little too much. Which is not surprising for young teenage girls these days anyway..

    but I know one will turn
    To three or four or more my little whore
    ---

    He knows that once he gets a taste of what shes like, he'll want even more. "My little whore" plays into the rape theory as well. What kind of vampires call their victims little whores o.o. Makes more sense if it was sexual/rape. He's calling her HIS little whore.

    Tonight, tonight
    She's not alone (can you taste the wicked in the room?)
    Bobbysoxer so pure, so young
    (By morning her soul will be gone, gone, gone.)
    ---

    "Tonight, tonight she's not alone (can you taste the wicked in the room?)" Means that she's not alone. Hes hiding and waiting for the best moment. Its pretty self-explanatory. "Can you taste the wicked in the room?" basically means "Can you feel that there's something not right?" like some gut feelings people get. "Bobbysoxer, so pure, so young," bobbysoxer is a teenage girl. She's pure and young. Pure implies she's still a virgin.
    "By morning her soul will be gone" ties in with the fact that she's awake, she's watching this all happen. Rape is no joke. It's a traumatic event that cannot be erased from the human mind and can even imbalance it. "Her soul will be gone" means that she will feel like she was robbed. She will be in tragic shock of what had happened. It'll leave her with an hollow and empty feeling. She'll feel broken into pieces or maybe not feel anything at all due to shock.

    ---
    I did a beautiful thing,
    Relax baby, that's a good girl
    ---

    Sounds like he's talking to her mid-rape. She probably put up a fight at first but he overpowered her and now shes just giving in to it because she cant stop it. The lyrics speak for themselves. "I did a beautiful thing" only in his mind was it beautiful because he finds her beautiful, and he thinks what he did was plausibly good.

    ---
    You're like my work of art
    I can control, I can contort any
    Position that I wish,
    I make my fantasy reality
    Hold still, it will be over soon
    ---

    STRONGLY supports the rape theory and debunks the vampire theory almost completely. She's given up and now he can do whatever he wants with her, making his "fantasies" realities. Pretty self-explanatory.

    ---
    I blend with the walls so I won't be seen
    My love, you smell so..
    I took one good look,
    And I followed you home
    ---

    Speaks for itself. Kind of goes into the time before he rapes her. He blends in with the walls = he's hiding and she hasn't seen him. He followed her home. He can smell her scent. He's in total lust with her. Nothing much more to say.


    Personally I can safely say these lyrics are about rape, not about vampiracy.

    General CommentI agree with wowu, why would they make this song? I love From First to Last and I used to love this song, but honestly the way some of you guys talk about being raped or rape in general is despicable. As if you could only be raped by someone famous or hot, then it would be okay. And as if rape is not that big of a deal. You should feel ashamed.

    General Commentthis song makes me think its about like rape or something like that or being stalked.


    i see the rape part in this part:

    I did a beautiful thing,
    Relax baby, that's a good girl
    You're like my work of art
    I can control, I can contort any
    Position that I wish,
    I make my fantasy reality
    Hold still, it will be over soon

    and the stalker part in this part:
    I blend with the walls so I won't be seen
    My love, you smell so....................
    I took one good look,
    And I followed you home


    and yeah the rest of the song just makes me think of those things too, but chances are i'm totally missing the point but thats just what came to mind but tis and amazing song regaurdless of its meaning!

    General Commenti think its rape though there is a kinda cannabalistic/vampirish line"Skin looks tight, think I just might have
    To take a bite, but I know one will turn
    To three or four or more my little whore"
    good song though.

    General Commentexactly what came to mind. i haven't even heard this song and i read the lyrics and i was thinking, oh jesus christo! rape and vampires. and what the heck is a bobbysoxer? i like the part where he talks about how s/he's a work of art... but then it gets sort of scary right after he talks about how he can distort her and make her into his fantasy. eep!

    General Commentdefinitely rape.
    i'm hoping it's not being written from the point that they're doing it to someone.
    i hope it's like metaphorised like they're sister or a friend got raped/molested and they're writing it like as if they're stuck inside the head of the perpertrator. (sp?)
