Pretty,
You are.
Enough to be in magazines.
A "front page fuck" for this month.
It won't matter now if the cameras come,
Because they won't recognize who they're taking pictures of,
There is so much blood,
There is so much.
We'll make history tonight,
And we'll take it down with us.
I'll dress you up.
You'll radiate for miles.
I love it how you always said:
"When I go down, I'm going down in style".
So here's your wish.
The engines of the brakes are shot,
It's funny cause even when you're dead I still do what you want.
We'll make history tonight,
And we'll take it down with us.
I never thought this would be how I die,
Next to you as dead as when you were alive.
I'll do it for love.
But what's love right?
One last kiss, one last cigarette, one last chance to look back.
One last kiss, one last cigarette, one last chance to look back and forget.
One last kiss, one last cigarette, one last chance to look back,
And regret this.
Goodnight,
Quiet city good night.
Goodnight pale princess,
Goodnight in shining armour,
Goodnight Romeo,
Lovesick Romeo.

    General Commentthe actual line is "engines on, the brakes are shot"
    this song is about the last ride of a guy and girl
    that eventually ends in the girls death "because they wont recognize who there taking pictures of, theres so much blood."
    this could be seen as the last legs of a relationship, the last ride when something finally goes wrong and it crashes and burns resulting in tragedy, i.e. girls sadness, she "dies" inside.
    also, the girl couldve done something to cause the break up, as noted in the lines "the engines on the brakes are shot." this could be seen as it was pre-emptive this breakup. that it was planned or it accidentally happened due to the fault of the girl. i.e. cheating. in the end hes saying goodnight to her in all her faded glory "princess".
    and goodnight to the city, which could be there relationship.
    hes saying goodbye to their relationship.

    thats what i think at least.

    General Commentwhen it said "because they wont recognize who there taking pictures of, theres so much blood." i thought of it as in the girl had changed soo much and he didnt like all the "blood" which i thought were like from the shots she took at his heart? maybe she did so much to hurt him, when she changed.
