I'm in line for the murder.
First come, first serve
You aim from across the hall
Your vision blurred
Is this what you want for me?
To hear me scream?
I'll die, suddenly
My blood on your hands
I'll die a tragedy
You'll live in vain
Here comes the last masquerade

Don't you just love a good time?
I Do
[x8]

    General CommentI love the sarcasm in the title and the ending. Deep in static, that line was added to the Album version "Well I never..." while the EP (Be Mine, Valentine) version is slightly different. I prefer the ep version, the one with the longer title..

    General CommentWikipedia has led me to being confused. This song is on Be Mine, Valentine...But apparently there is one called "Well I Never..." on In Vogue.

    Anywhoo, I love this song. I like the "Is this what you want from me, to hear me SCREAM?" :)

    General CommentWow, no interpretations yet, huh?
    Well first of i LOVE when he says "don't you just love a good time? i do", ESPECIALLY the part where it sounds like it's rewinding, followed by the performance of the final scream of these words. And the way it ties in with the song title as well. It is PERFECT. Truly a work of art.

    Normally i just listen to this song because that last part gets me totally pumped, or because I can often relate to the feeling "Is this what you want for me? To hear me scream?!" in many of the relationships that exist throughout my life...
    But since i'm on "SongMeanings.net", here's what i think it all means:

    "I'm in line for the murder.
    First come, first serve
    You aim from across the hall
    Your vision blurred"

    I think this is talking about a very bitter girl who was abused &/or betrayed by a past lover, or even more likely, her father, & because of this she no longer views men as individual people anymore, but as whoever or whatever this male from her past turned out to be, (which is why he says "your vision blurred" because her perception of men as a whole has been tainted & destroyed by this one asshole & she can no longer see them for what they really are, just as another version of that guy). Anyway is she ready to take out her anger & sadness on any guy who allows her to get close enough to do so ("first come first serve"), believing that revenge will reward her with some kind of inner peace & the deamons of her past can finally be laid to rest.
    (the blurred vision could also be referring to tears in her eyes tho).

    "Is this what you want for me?
    To hear me scream?
    I'll die, suddenly
    My blood on your hands
    I'll die a tragedy
    You'll live in vain"

    I think in asking this question he is pushing her to take a closer look at what she's doing & perhaps question her motives, to realize that he is NOT the one she's really after. That he is not the man who hurt her long ago, just a guy trying to offer his love to her. He's trying to explain that if she does this it will only damage him & spread the devastation she felt onto the life of another person ("dying in tragedy"--emotionally), not fix her. It will all be for nothing because nothing can change the past--nothing will fill the void now. It would all be "in vain".

    "Here comes the last masquerade" I think he uses the word masquerade because this girl mentally (& very wrongly) dresses up these other guys in the characteristics of the one she hates in order to feel less guilty about channeling her negative emotion towards them.

    And finally, I think he says "Don't you just love a good time?
    I Do" because he is someone who is addicted to drama & messed up relationships because that's all he's ever had & is what he's used to, so he's willing & ready to take on the burden of this girl's destructive nature.
    (Or he is being totally sarcastic & looking at the situation in an "oh god, here comes the bullshit..." kind of way).

    Might i just add, however, that this may not necessarily be a girl--this person could really represent anyone in the speaker's life who treats them like shit for the wrong reasons.

    If you want to check out my interpretation on "Dressed For Friend Requests" and one other DDG song, (tho i can't remember which...) my old user name was love_is_murder. Forgot my password tho...& wasn't recieving the reminder email for it.
