Such a lovely girl and a lovely house.
Something went terribly wrong.

Come closer girl,
I'll light you on fire.
You deserve that much.

It's all your fault.
You did this to yourself.
It's easier to take a hatchet to somebody you love.
And now the lust,
Has lost its pleasure.
You take to heart the cruelty of the game that you've created.

Come closer girl,
I'll light you on fire.
You deserve that much.

Draped in red,
Guess this is closure.
It's easier to take a hatchet to somebody you love.
"Oh well, this dress was red anyway."
You take to heart the cruelty of the game that you've created.

Such a lovely girl and a lovely house.
Something went terribly wrong.

"It's all your fault!
You did this to yourself!"

Come closer girl,
I'll light you on fire.
You deserve that much.

Where'd ya get that body?

Come closer girl,
I'll light you on fire.
You deserve that much.

"Now the lust has lost its pleasure.
Spilling guts, guess this is closure."

(Watch you burn slowly,
Yeah you've earned it.)

    General CommentI think it's about a good-girl-gone-bad. And the murderer kills her as a punishment for what she's done.

    I like the creepy spoken bit at the end of this best.

    General CommentI think about this song is the girl and the man where perfectly fine but something triggered his mind going most likely insane then seeing her happy and free he wanted to take it away and then prolly found out something bad about the lady thus making him angry at her knwoing she has done bad and all his work he has done is wrong so he woudl kill her in the process

    General CommentGah, I'm excited to find out what connection this song has to one of the Saylor Lake murders.
    Only numbers 1 and 2 (Red or White Whine? and Drawing the Devil) are posted as of today, and 45223 is the 7th, so it'll be a while until it is posted.

    General CommentThe one who said the zip code is Cincinnati, Ohio is right.
    And that has everything to do with the album.
    Go to absolutepunk.net/…
    It tells you alot of what this is about.
    Plus, it got a good review.
