(Originally called Damsel Of Death)

Been waiting for an end in a life filled with all those little stories.
(Say what you want, say what you need)
Our last encounter,
(Say what you want, say what you need)
Still stings like alcohol,
And all the stones and prison bars that stood in the way of my amends.
Forgive me.

I know you killed for me, you're sailing with the rock, Aileen.
Promise you'll come for me, the sixth of June will bring you home.
Say what you want, say what you need,
Cause tonight is your last chance to reach me.

Hope and love seem to,
(Say what you want, say what you need)
Be a waste in this mortal reality.
So we'll meet again on the sixth of June.
There won't be a heart to break this time.
And all the souls of fallen men won't stand in the way of our love again.
Forgive me.

I know you killed for me, you're sailing with the rock, Aileen.
Promise you'll come for me, the sixth of June will bring you home.
Say what you want, say what you need,
Cause tonight is your last chance to reach me.

I know you killed for me, you're sailing with the rock, Aileen.
Promise you'll be there on the sixth of June, our lord will guide you home.
Say what you want, say what you need,
Cause tonight is your last chance to reach me.
I know you killed for me, you're sailing with the rock, Aileen.
Promise you'll come for me, the sixth of June will bring you home.
Say what you want, say what you need,
(I know you killed for me, I know you killed for me)
Say what you want, say what you need,
(I know you killed for me, say what you need)
Cause tonight is the last chance to reach me.

    General CommentThis song is about the female serial killer Aileen Wuornos. Her last words on camera (before she got executed) were

    "I'd just like to say I'm sailing with the Rock and I'll be back like Independence Day with Jesus, June 6, like the movie, big mothership and all. I'll be back. "

    This LOVELY song is obviously about her

    General CommentThe lyric is about aileen's murders to to male that are innocent, the lyrics shows hate of the insane murderer,
    for e.g. "I know you killed for me, you're sailing with the rock I lead." , It says here that if aileen is still alive, she can still slaughter innocent men, she will still be on a killing spree.

    In this line "Say what you want, say what you need,Cause tonight is your last chance to reach me.", means that men our nearly free and safe from aileen's annahilation on the day of her execution.

    This song really freakens me out, aileen's was so scary.

    Song MeaningI think this song was written from the perspective of Aileen's lover, Tyria Moore

    ''Been waiting for an end in a life filled with all those little stories.
    (Say what you want, say what you need)
    Our last encounter,
    (Say what you want, say what you need)
    Still stings like alcohol,
    And all the stones and prison bars that stand in the way of my amends.
    Forgive me.''

    I think this relates to the recorded phone call as seen on the move Monster, where Aileen realizes that Selby is being recorded by the police when she asks about the money.

    ''There won't be a heart to break this time.
    And all the souls of fallen men can't stand in the way of our love again.''

    This is Tyria (or selby) stating how the deaths of those men came between them and tore their love apart, therefore breaking each of their hearts.

    ''I know you killed for me, you're sailing with the rock, Aileen. ''

    I think this line is both and interpretation of Aileens last words;
    "I'd just like to say I'm sailing with the Rock and I'll be back like 'Independence Day' with Jesus, June 6, like the movie, big mother ship and all. I'll be back,"

    and also Tyria understanding why Aileen did what she did, because of her love for her.

    General CommentI know you (you'd/you'll?) kill for me, you 'see me' (sailing?) with the rock I lead
    Promise you’ll come for me on the 6th of June will bring you up
    Say what you want say what you need
    (I thought it might be assume, but there's a n sound in there) your last chance to reach me.


    They based this song around the last words of Aileen Wuornos, AKA, The Damsel Of Death.

    "I'd just like to say I'm sailing with the Rock and I'll be back like 'Independence Day' with Jesus, June 6, like the movie, big mother ship and all. I'll be back," Wuornos said.

    So that could hint some of the lyrics. Argh. I've been trying so hard to work it out!

    I hope they don't change the name to June 6th. That's stupid.

    General Comment"Damsel Of Death" sounds good, "Sixth Of June" is a bit corny. Either way, love the song.

    Going off the Aileen Wuornos theory; if it's to do with the real life tale, I'd say it's from the view of Tyria Moore.

    Otherwise, I think it's about Monster - one of the movies based on Aileen's life. Once again, from the view of the character based on Tyria Moore - Selby Wall.

    "All you need is love and to believe in yourself. Nice idea. It doesn't exactly work out that way."... reminds me of "Hope and love seem to be a waste in this mortal reality."

    Either way, it's definately about Aileen, whether it be the true story or the Monster movie.
