Around your neck is where my hands are headed to prove my point that love is what you make it a rose petal for every time you scream sometimes I like to pretend you smile my days consist of thinking of way s to bring you pain in my days condsist of thinking of ways to hurt you to bring you pain to hurt you waiting but not for me around your neck is where my hands are headed to prove to prove my point that love is what you make it it's not that I hate you it's just that I love to hurt you posing with my halo covered in her blood her screams are so lovely like the heavens singing to me I told you I loved you and I'm sorry I lied to you but I needed to see your pain and see your weakened cries I don't hate you I just love to hurt you

    General CommentI don't really think that is the point at all.

    It seems to be mocking the motives of a girlfriend or female who was/is covetted.

    It shows through with:

    Lying in her bed of roses waiting for some dream
    Waiting in some dead illusion, waiting, not for me

    And then the whole:

    I said that I love you, and I'm sorry I lied to you

    Seems to be a hook-up thing, maybe being used for the physical without regard for the emotional.

    General CommentYeah, even listening to Anthony's voice, you can tell when he is and isn't very emotional about his lyrics...

    "Waiting in some dead illusion, waiting, not for me!"

    Sounds EXTREMELY hurtful, the whole song has a tinge of jealousy to it.

    General CommentIt's actually about the serial killer Jerry Brudos.

    General CommentI definitely get the vibe that this is about a serial killer's craving to kill and torture. That sadistic uncontrollable drive to inflict pain on another human being. The lyrics are most likely inspired by a past relationship the writer may have had with a woman. The quote at the end of the song where he is speaking, are the words of "The co-ed killer" Edmund Kemper: "I knew long before I started killing that i was going to be killing, that it was going to end up like that. The fantasies were too strong. They were going on for far too long, they were too elaborate."
