This is not
At all what it seems
There is no sorrow or regret
For the choices that we make
You'll be gone like them tomorrow

Goddamn!
I'm no killer
Goddamn!
I'm no killer

They'll be looking
They'll be searching for days
To find a trace of your body
I remember the those confessions you made
When you drove to my house
Were you looking for trouble
I know all those houses look the same
We'll keep on moving with the wind at our backs

I don't want to see you fall apart
When they come to get you
(You're safe and sound)
I know we can have at this head start
And I'm sure we'll pull through
(I'll keep you hidden with me)
Tell me that we'll make it out alive
I know this desert has got its ghosts
So know its just a matter of
A matter of time
Before they find us

Oh my my, oh hell yes
You're being burried in your party dress
I'll hide my face from the sun
And the fire won't stop
Fire won't stop me

Oh my my, oh hell yes
You're being burried in your party dress
I'll hide my face from the sun
And the fire won't stop
Fire won't stop me

You're not my usual
My usual
You're not my usual victim
(We'll keep on moving with the wind at our backs)

I don't want to see you fall apart
When they come to get you
(You're safe and sound)
I know we can have at this head start
And I'm sure we'll pull through
(I'll keep you hidden with me)

Oh my my, oh hell yes
You're being burried in your party dress
I'll hide my face from the sun
And the fire won't stop
Fire won't stop me

Oh my my, oh hell yes

    General Comment"Oh my my, oh hell yes, you're being buried in your party dress" reminds me of Mary Jane's Last Dance by Tom Petty. Hahaha.

    General CommentInteresting caught my ear greatly I find that this song is about someone close to him a mindless druggie that he cares about but destroys herself or dies possibly I think the part hidden in me caught my ear greatly cause well hey everyone keeps someone hidden in there hearts i do I keep a lot of people hidden in my heart ha ha I guess that's just the religion of feeling emotions that what this shits here for..

    General CommentI feel like he got in an argument with someone he loved and killed her in the heat of the moment. And I feel like it's his internal struggle emotionally after realizing what he's done. There are parts where his mind seems broken and he sounds cold emotionally. Sometimes broken in that he's distraught one moment and then in the next, still talking to her as though she were still alive ("I don't want to see you fall apart/ When they come to get you/ (You're safe and sound)/ I know we can have at this head start/ And I'm sure we'll pull through (I'll keep you hidden with me)"). And at others it's a "WTF happened??" ("Goddamn!/ I'm no killer/ Goddamn!/ I'm no killer"). And self loathing during the "You're not my usual victim" makes it seem like he's had a tough life and he has a tendency to blame himself. Even though I don't really listen to metal anymore, I find myself loving this song because it seems like such a good study of human emotion and nature in its most terrible moments... Anyways, that's my interpretation.

    My OpinionI think this song is cat and mouse horror story. It throws you in and makes you fill in the blanks. Every screamed line and verse is a twisted serial killer hunting down a girl who stumbled onto his property. He's very sarcastic, like "Goddamn! I'm no killer", sounds like he's almost mocking the girl as he tracks her down. Now what I like to think is it's two people, prom dates if you will, that get plastered and wander onto this crazy fuck's land. He's primarily interested in the girl, as he doesn't mention the guy, who in turn is the one that is singing the chorus' lines. He's trying to calm the girl down while they're on the run. Everything falls into place after that, but I think there's prolly more than one bad guy, since they use we and they a lot. Think Straw Dogs, I Spit on your Grave, or Last House on the Left.

    Now what's really cool to me is that the last chorus is cut short, and the final verse is the "Oh my, my! Oh hell yes!", like the killer(s) got them in the end. When he first says that verse, it's like foreshadowing, or almost mockery. I like the party dress line, because that has some seriously cool imagery. Also, when he is screaming during the choruses, he's being sarcastic IMO.

    That's my opinion, and I think I'll stick with that because there's not enough songs like this.
