"Killer" as written by and Silas Utke Graae Joergensen Johan Haslund Wohlert....
Every night
Household pain, apartment so lonely
Set me right
Snow filled streets that harbour a killer
Boarding pass
Far from here you walk through
His meadow
Every night
Stone cold hands provide you with shelter
Singing peaceful
From your voice I fashion a snow sled
Going so fast
No one sees it leads to disaster
Don't let me go
Don't let me go
Someone in need
There's a killer on the street
You know who
And you reach for the light switch: power dead!
Meaning to do
Can you separate the two?
Well you knew it would come
And it looks like tampering
Fall as you may
You will never see the daylight again
Is it just like the Tiger nightmare?
Grey bed, walk in the sunshine's stead
Walk slow, don't let them catch you whole
Why should I stay?
Wash your lies away

    General CommentI don't think this song is literally about a killer.
    What I see from these lyrics is like a boy or girl that lives with their father or something.
    It sounds like the parent is never really there for the child, and everything the parent does scares the child. The kid constantly thinks of running away, but he feels trapped
