(One, two, three, four.)

Do you remember me?
I killed your family
And now I am going to kill you too
I made your brother bleed
I made your father scream
And I made your mother say those things that she said to me
She said, "Do with me what you want, but please don't hurt my family, don't hurt my family
Take my pride, take my life, take my body but don't take the ones that are close to me.
Oh, do with me what you want, but please don't hurt my family, don't hurt my family
Take my pride, take my life, take my body but don't take the ones that I love."
And I continued without mercy
So I looked into your eyes
And I saw a reflection
Of a coward that you and I both hate very much
And then I grabbed the knife
And I let the blood out of your throat
And I smashed those tiny mirrors inside of your skull
And I got to thinking
If I don't go to hell when I die I might go to heaven
If I don't go to hell when I die I might go to heaven
If I don't go to hell when I die I might go to heaven
If I don't go to hell when I die I might go to heaven
Might go to heaven, but probably not

    And I let the blood out of your throat
    And I smashed those tiny mirrors inside of your skull
    And I got to thinking

    That is easily the most haunting description of a homicidal mindset I've ever heard.

    General CommentThis song probably comes from a place of guilt for having such thoughts. It sounds like it has a narrative and doesn't really make a statement about murder in general.

    General CommentThe fate worse then hell is seeing the people he destroyed and feeling shame/guilt. Lyrics are over the top but it's a feeling most of us are familiar with I'm sure.

    General CommentThe mirrors inside the skull bit reminds me a lot of the serial killer portrayed in "Red Dragon"
