The first time's the last time's the first time in my life. Lights will ignite us.
We're all dead.

We're all blood-thirsty killers.
(x4)
We're all dead.
(x6)
We're all dead inside.

The first time's the last time's the first time in my life. Lights will ignite us.
We're all dead.

(We're all dead.)
(Lights will...)
(Lights will...)
(Lights will...)
(Lights will...)

Open water. The tides have shifted like clockwork; the sharks arrive at (dawn.)
Open water. The tides have shifted.

(This is your captain speaking. Please fasten your sse...chh)

Razor cut like a smile. (Straight through.)
Razor cut like a smile. (Straight through.)
Razor cut like a smile. (Straight through.)
Razor cut like a smile.

    General CommentThis is my favourite DDG song. No idea what it's about, to put it on the blatant side perhaps it's dying at sea, by a shark. haha. It's probably got some other meaning but why read between the lines?

    General CommentIt's about a human's natural state of mind. The theory that we are all born evil (we're all blood-thirsty killers) but society changes us to do good (razor cut like a smile). It's about how that evil instinct comes out when we experience love (lights will ignite us). Which is why love always ends in heartbreak. (The first time's the last time). He's saying he'll never love again.

    Well, that's what it means to me, anyway. That's what I think about when I listen to this song, but I could be wrong.

    we're all dead inside, meaning that we're all lifeless and the same as everyone else.
