"Killing for Love" as written by Jose Gonzalez and Erik Bodin....
What's the point if you hate
Die and kill for love, kill for love
What's the point with a love
Makes you hate and kill for

You've got a heart on fire
Bursting with desire
You've got a heart filled with passion
Will you let it burn for hate or compassion

What's the point if you hate
Die and kill for love, kill for love
What's the point with a love
Makes you hate and kill for

What's the point if you hate
Die and kill for love
What's the point with a love
Makes you hate and kill for

Killing for love
Killing for love
Killing for love
Killing for love

You've got a heart on fire
Bursting with desire
You've got a heart filled with passion
Will you let it burn for hate or compassion

What's the point if you hate
Die and kill for love, kill for love
What's the point with a love
Makes you hate and kill for

Killing for love
Killing for love
Killing for love
...

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song it made me think of religion and how people can be so easily manipulated into hatefulness of what is unfamiliar and what goes against their teachings. Countless people have died, hated, and killed all for their God and church. what kind of love is that? beautiful song though...

    General CommentI actually do hear the "die".
    I don't know why you guys don't. You just don't want it there.
    But it actually makes sense with the song.
    You guys think it's some sort of blasphemy that someone thought they heard lyrics that you don't.
    Big deal.

    I hear the "die."
    That's all.

    And I love this song.

    General Commenti was at his show last night and he did a joke right before this song about religion. it made me look at this song very differently.

    General CommentThis is a love song.
    It analyzes love.
    Illusions are brought to the light.
    "Will you let it burn for hate or compassion."
    Your heart, your passions.

    Will you let that human passion for sex, companionship, togetherness, security, be expressed negatively, with harmfully selfish consequences, or will you try to compromise and make it as gracefully expressed as possible?

    General Comment" if you hate, die and kill for love." really has to be "if you hate and kill for love" I don't know who wrote this, but it is sincere nonsense.

    And to lasyoldsun> No kidding... it is a love song??? you didn't get that from the TITLE of the song huh?
