"Death In Her Room" as written by and Bertine Zetlitz....
there's death in her room
you can probably see it
the way both her dogs
have been staring at me, yeah
there's death in her room
but it probably melts down to nothing

there's death in her room
where there used to be toys, yeah
enough to go 'round
for the girls, for the boys, yeah
there's death in her room
but it probably melts down to nothing

'cause my baby likes to get undressed
my baby needs to be possessed
my baby, so tender, my baby

there's death in her room
and it blends with the noise, yeah
she always receives with im-
peccable poise, yeah
there's death in her room
but it probably melts down to nothing

'cause my baby likes to get undressed
my baby needs to be possessed
my baby, so tender, my baby, yeah

my baby, warlocks in her ear
my baby needs to be aware
my baby, so tender, my baby, yeah

my baby loves to get undressed
[she needs to be possessed in her room]

my baby, warlocks in her ear
my baby needs to be aware
my baby, so tender, my baby, yeah

my baby likes to get undressed
my baby needs to be possessed
my baby, so tender, my baby

death in her room
you can probably see it
the way both her dogs
have been staring at me
yeah, there's death in her room
but it probably melts down to nothing

    General CommentAmazing song.

    A little girl's mother (the singer/narrator) just KNOWS there is a dead body in her daughters bedroom, but she dismisses it because, hey, little girls can't kill, right?
    But her daughter did kill someone. In fact, she's quite proud of her murder.
    "heck of a poise", indeed.

    General CommentI always have kind of interpreted this song as being about the woman's daughter having an abortion. She still sees her daughter as a baby, but her daughter is growing up and 'likes to get undressed.' The daughter has dealt with the emotional aspects of the abortion but her mother can still sense the 'death in her room.'

    Also, I've thought the line was 'she always receives with impeccable poise.'
