"We Kill At Twilight" as written by Kato Khandwala and Unknown Writer....
Take my hand and walk with me
There’s something you should know right now
There’s something you should see

Have you ever seen a burning sky
From a hundred yards away?
Have you ever seen a falling skyline
In the wake of a thousand flames?

It’s now or never, baby
You better hold your breath tonight
We’re gonna burn this city, it won’t be pretty
We kill at twilight

Say your prayers and don’t look back
The moon is hanging low tonight
In a sky that’s painted black

Tell everyone it’s do or die time
They’re never safe out in the streets
Tell everyone it’s do or die time
In the wake of the blazing heat

It’s now or never, baby
You better hold your breath tonight
We’re gonna burn this city, it won’t be pretty
We kill at twilight

It’s now or never, baby
You better hold your breath tonight
We’re gonna burn this city, it won’t be pretty
We kill at twilight

We have the strength of ten men
When we go down we get up again
We have the strength of ten men
When we go down we get up again

We have the power of a barrel blazing red
We’re in your head
We have the power of a barrel blazing red
We wake the dead
We have the power of a barrel blazing red

It’s now or never, baby
You better hold your breath tonight
We’re gonna burn this city, it won’t be pretty
We kill at twilight

It’s now or never, baby
You better hold your breath tonight
We’re gonna burn this city, it won’t be pretty
We kill at twilight

It won’t be pretty, baby
We kill at twilight
We kill at twilight

    General CommentNo, I don't think so. He is a jerk, and he kills everyone, but that's not what this song is about. I don't know what it's about, but I'm sure it's not about George Bush. I love the "We have the power of a barrel blazing red, we're in your head" part.

    General Commenti think that this song(directly) is about vampires. the setting is night time. they have superhuman qualities such as super strength(strength of ten men) and farsight(Have you ever seen a bird in the sky,
    From a hundred yards away?). they kill at twilight, with refers to the time a vampire starts to feed.

    Now the confusing thing is that this band is a christian band. they could be refering to satan or demons, becuase the vampires are at the city to kill steal and destroy.(Satan comes only to steal, kill, and destroy John 10:10(half of it)).

    truthfully i have no clue what this song is about, but i think this might be close to the idea.

    My InterpretationFirst I'd like to point out that I believe there is an error in the first verse listed here. Instead of "Have you ever seen a bird in the sky" it should be "Have you ever seen a burning sky".

    I don't know for sure what this song is about but given that this is a Christian band I think a case can be made that this song is about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    The first verse could be referring to the account of the two angels (as men) sent by God who led Lot and his family safely out of Sodom because God was going to destroy it by raining down burning sulfur.

    The second verse could just be another reference to the burning sulfur.

    The third verse starts with "Say your prayers and don't look book" which could be referring to the angels instructing Lot and his family to flee and not to stop or look back.

    Verse five could be referring to the angels which presumably have supernatural powers.

    The only part that doesn't quite add up is the "We kill at twilight" part. While the angels did arrive in Sodom in the evening (twilight perhaps) I believe the actual destruction took place in the morning since Genesis 19 implies that the LORD began raining down sulfur only after Lot reached Zoar (where he was fleeing) and the sun had risen over the land.

    Just my two cents.
