I think you know we're running out of time
You've started dressing up
The mood is ruined by the cheapest wine
That's spilling on your skirt

She's dressed to kill
I hope this was within her will
Her body's still

Moved north from New York
But the city life is tugging at her soul
Served whisky to the drunks
That haunt the night
Her life is getting old

She's dressed to kill
I hope this was within her will
Her body's still

She wanted more than he could fake
But I was standing beside her

Trading the life she loved
For something less
The guilt is setting in
Paying the bills by taking off her dress
The pressure's worn her thin
Pop in the pills to nullify the stress
It's showing through her skin

She's dressed to kill
I hope this was within her will
Her body's still

She wanted more than he could fake
But I was standing beside her
(Standing beside her)
She bit off more than she could take
And now she's fed to the fire

Soft as the petal
Tough as the thorn

She wanted more than he could fake
But I was standing beside her
(Standing beside her)
She bit off more than she could take
And now she's fed to the fire
(Fed to the fire)
Fed to the fire
(Fed to the fire)

She wanted more than he could fake
But I was standing beside her
(Standing beside her)
She bit off more than she could take
And now she's fed to the fire
(Fed to the fire)

(She wanted more)
Fed to the fire
(She wanted more)
Fed to the fire

    General CommentI can't believe this band doesn't have at least 10 comments on each of their songs yet... yet alone none. This is an amazing way to end the album.

    By the way, it's definitely "She wanted more than he could fake"

    I think it's about a girl he used to know or have some kind of relationship with that has completely changed and isn't at all what she used to be. She may have gone and lived in the city for a while, which corrupted her, and now she's back and completely different. It's a shame because this has happened to so many people I used to be so close with that completely changed when they were away at college or whatever. An amazing song!

    General CommentI think this is a song about a girl who is going throgh changes. Changes for the worst. I beleve its her turning into a stripper, or something along those lines.
    I think this verse explains it all.
    "Trading the life she loved for something less
    The guilt is setting in
    Paying thebills by taking off her dress
    The pressure's worn her thin
    Pop in the pills to nullify the stress
    It's showing through her skin"

    Basically a girl who has been changed. Her life is goung downhill, Shes taking pills, stripping, shes "trading her life for less"

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who threw her life away and then died.

    For the died part:
    "she's dressed to kill"
    "i hope this was within her will"
    "her body's still"
    "now she's fed to the fire" = cremation

    plus everything about her is in past tense.
