I feel your heartbeat
Your pasty hands shake
I'll be every breath
Your trembling lips take
Metal teeth wanna save you
Button flies wanna keep you pure
Noting can stop me now, I will have you

I was born to do this dance
So follow my every step
I'll lead your careening hips
And slaughter your innocence

Her pearls and trap mutter something soft
I whisper back, "You're messing with the big leagues now, hun"
(I bite her neck)
She begs, "What's in your heart?"
She urges I spill my thoughts
I volunteer nothing but liquid

I was born to do this dance
So follow my every step
I'll lead your careening hips
And slaughter your innocence

I have got centuries
Of teachers before me
I can do anything
I can really do anything
You've been our guest tonight
But I dine alone
This can never be your home

    General CommentOkay so jamesgc, Rosea, and kylegoestohollywood and pretty much everyone (except the vampire stuff) calls it:

    The song is about a male character who is slaughtering the innocence of a girl; it is indeed a one-night stand, but he feels alone in knowing that he never truly loves. Again, this is another theme common in Wonderland (Ants: "An easy Fuck")

    And the "I have got centuries/Of teachers before me" and "big leagues" only serves to show how this guy has done this quite a lot.

    The artwork: it is rather interesting as it shows a black male at night facing towards the picture, as if he was on top of the girl (sexually of course). What's interesting is the next picture for "A dead person..." is the main female character, facing the opposite in the morning.

    General CommentHer pearls and trap mutter something soft
    I whisper back, "You're messin' with the
    Big leagues now, hun"
    I bite her neck
    She begs, "What's in your heart?"
    She urges I spill my thoughts
    I volunteer nothing but liquid.

    I have got centuries
    Of teachers before me
    I can do anything
    But I really can't do anything
    You've been our guest tonight
    But I dine alone
    This can never be a home

    General CommentEdited. I don't really hear the "She" in "She urges" or the "I" in "I volunteer," though.

    Thanks.

    General CommentThis song is very raw and awesome. No mercy in the chase, just like animals.

    I can do anything, I can really do anything... :]

    obviously had sex with the girl and is now telling her essentially "well, thanks. cya." in "this could never be your home".

    General CommentIts about rape.

    "Slaughter your innocence"

    "You've been our guest tonight but i dine alone". Dine alone meaning the narrator is the only one that got pleasure out of it, even though she was there with him.

    Thats what it sounds like to me anyway.

    General CommentDruken sex, maybe?

    "She urges I spill my thoughts
    I volunteer nothing but liquid"

    With a twist of regret, of course.

    General Commentits definately about sex....

    to me it sounds like taking a girls virginity most likely during a one night stand.

    i.e "her hands shake and tremlbing lips" because its her first time and "Button flies wanna keep you pure" as the guy struggles to undo button up jeans....

    the chorus suggests the guy being more experienced and taking control and the innocent girl learning how its done

    and then "You've been our guest tonight
    But I dine alone
    This can never be your home"

    suggests to me that the girl expects a relationship but the guy only wanted a one night stand

    thats what i tihnk anyway - probably all wrong
