The girl in the Slayer jacket gave me my first kiss when I was in the seventh grade. She used to smoke weed with my older sister in the woods behind the arcade. She had thick skin, but if you cut her, the wound would bleed forever. She hung herself from an overpass down in McLean, where the old trees loom. Her parents tried to sue Slayer, they blamed her boyfriend and PCP, but the truth is, her eyes had been dead since she was five, she just hadn't disposed of her body.

    General CommentDamn is this song brutal. The lyrics are not that bad either. They tell a pretty morbid, but interesting story.

    General CommentHell,These guys can write some really good songs.This one is really morbid.He describes not only the character and the settings with absolute clarity but also the emotion.I like the way he sings it in first person,It makes it honest and real.I like the way the girl never had a name,but she is that girl in the Slayer jacket.You know?The one we all can relate to.Our first kiss.I first thought a Slayer jacket was a straight jacket.But I think they are talking about the popular metal band Slayer.Probably the most popular band when he was in the 7th grade.That was the year he got his kiss from her.This girl smoked weed with his older sister in the woods behind the arcade.She had hemophilia,maybe because of frequent drug intake I don`t know,but J.R describes it as ; "when you cut her the wound would bleed forever".Did she cut herself?He describes her suicide and the setting as if he was there.Her parents tried to sue the band Slayer as all parents would have probably done.It`s always the music`s fault."They blamed her boyfriend and PCP"Did her parent blame those or did Slayer blame them as a scapegoat?Who was her boyfriend? Him? He goes on and says "...the truth is her eyes had been dead since she was five,she just had`nt disposed of her body" WOW sick.Is he covering up his guilt or is he telling us the truth? I like this song >Even if it is fiction I never heard a band using the popularity of another band to make a song about suicide.
