"They Said That Hell's Not Hot" as written by Brian Warner and Tim Skold....
I kill myself in small amounts
In each relationship it's not about love
Just another funeral
And just another girl left in tears

And I'm waiting
With the sound turned off, I'm waiting
Like a glass balloon, I'm fading
Into the void and then I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone

They said that hell's not hot
They said that hell's not hot

I gave my soul to someone else
She must have known that it was already sold
But it was never about her
It was about the hurt

So, I'm waiting
With the sound turned off, I'm waiting
Like a glass balloon, I'm fading
Into the void and then I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone

I kill myself in small amounts
In each relationship it's not about love
Just another funeral
And just another girl left in tears

Waiting
With the sound turned off, I'm waiting
Like a glass balloon, I'm fading
Into the void and then I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone

Waiting
Waiting
I'm fading
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone

They said that hell's not hot
They said that hell's not hot
They said that hell's not hot
They said that hell's not hot

    General CommentI love Marilyn because he can be gone for so long and when he comesback, he can give us something that isn't crap.

    Other than that, I think this song is about a man-tease. He makes these relationships with girls and what-have-you, then he drops them and fades away. "It was never about her, It was about the hurt", its not that he doesn't like her, it's just he gets a kick out of the fact she's in tears for him. He realizes this, making him feel like a monster, introducing the song by saying that it hurts him the most, in fact, it kills him.

    Or you can go with the shitty, cliche "I can't find the right girl to fall in love with" emo crap. But you see, MM can't be emo, because MM makes music to cry over, hatred of self rather than hatred of life, making him elegantly brutal.

    General CommentI believe someone messed up on the lyrics. It should go;
    I gave my soul to someone else
    She must have known that
    It was already sold
    It was never about her
    It was about the hurt
    And I’m waiting
    With the sound turned off
    I’m waiting
    Like a glass balloon
    And I’m fading
    Into the void and then
    I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m gone…

    So you all know. : )
