Walking on traintracks
Thinking of the girl you killed
She was the eighteenth girl in the world
Who ever gave me love, love
Vengence in my heart
And in my hands, a gun, a gun, a gun
Death wish three
Motherfucker I'm comin' through your town

I'm gonna give it to you
Watch ya die
I could not care less about life
Oh I want you to know
I gave it to you
Oh I gave it to you
More (more) more (more) more (more) more (more)

Give it to me
I'm gonna give it to you
Watch ya die
Think I give a fuck about a aliby
Oh I want you to know
I gave it to you
Oh I gave it to ya
More (more) more (more) more (more) more (more)

Give it to me
I'm gonna paint the town red
Paint it red
For the love
That I lost
I'm gonna paint the town red
Paint it red
For my love
At any cost (2x)





Here it true (?)
Spin my volume
Hit the dust
Squeezin' off rounds with cold fingertips
For my latest love, love
My revenge is a dish best served right fucking now
Right now, right now
One left in the barrel of the only piece I found

You wanna give it to me
All my life
Hit me up and watch me die
Oh but before I go
I gave it to you
Oh I gave it to you
More (more) more (more) more (more) more (more)

Give it to me
Watch me now
You think I give a fuck about life
Oh I want you to know
I gave it to you
Oh I gave it to you
More (more) more (more) more (more) more (more)

Give it to me
I'm gonna paint the town red
Paint it red
For the love
That I lost
I'm gonna paint the town red
Paint it red
For my love
At any cost (3x)

    General CommentI think it's to do with a guy who has schizophrenia, his normal self is in love with girls, but this voice is telling him to kill them; that's who he is singing to.

    He feels that he has to kill the voice inside him, which is why it says "I'm gonna give it to you, watch you die" followed later by "You wanna give it to me...watch me die."

    Basically, he is going to kill himself because 'the voice' keeps making him kill people he falls in love with.

    {Or something like that}

    General CommentIt sounds almost like a psychopath kind of guy who goes on a killing spree because of a girl who... dumped him, maybe? Girls would give him love and then dump him and he'd kill them, their blood "painting the town red." He feels that they've betrayed him and wants revenge ("Vengence in my heart").

    It could also be that he feels almost that if anyone gives him love, he should kill them before he love them, too... But the "eighteenth girl in the world who ever gave you love" makes me iffy on that one. xD

    Favourite line: "My revenge is a dish best served right fucking now!"

    General Commenti think its about a guy who's trying to avenge a girl some other person murdered. it's pretty obvious because it says "Thinking of the girl you killed
    She was the eighteenth girl in the world.." it's in past tense and the threats he makes is in present tense.

    it doesn't make sense if he's schizophrenic because in the lyrics he asks, "Think I give a fuck about a aliby?" which is sort of says i don't care if i get caught after i'm done with you.

    later in the lyrics he sings, "Squeezin' off rounds with cold fingertips" i don't think a person trying to kill a voice in his head would shoot himself more than once.

    General CommentI agree with efunkcow. :D
    The past and present tense thing, basically.

    I love this song so fucking much.
    Red is my favorite color. Yeah, I know that really has nothing to do with the song, but you know. I just thought everyone should know. It's a good color.

    General Commentpersonally, i think this song is about spreading std's, or aids specifically

    General Commentefunkcow is the only person who actually makes sense. If you pay close attention to the actually words, you can follow who he is singing about and to who, and it isn't himself folks. The first verse sets it all up-Walking on traintracks
    Thinking of the girl you killed (you meaning someone else) She was the eighteenth girl in the world
    Who ever gave me (me, hmm. I think that would be him) love, love
    Vengence in my heart (Vengence. Fun. fun.)
    And in my hands, a gun, a gun, a gun
    Death wish three
    Motherfucker I'm comin' through your town (He's coming to get the sucker who killed the 18th girl who loved him.)

    Oh yes.
