"Killer" as written by Irwin Sparkes, Martin Skarendahl and Alan Sharland....
I hate my work, but I'm in control
I'm fearless now, but it cost my soul
Save yourselves, the moon is full
Under its power, gravitational pull

Blood red lips, they shake like leaves
You're flesh and blood, but what's underneath?

Don't turn out the lights
Kiss yourself goodnight cause there's a killer
And he's coming after you
Kiss yourself goodnight, tonight
Cause there's a killer and he's coming after you

It's alright to scream
I'm screaming too,
Why'd you think I do these things I do?
For shadows haunted me like ghosts,
So I became what I feared the most

I conduct fear like electricity
A man made monstrosity

Don't turn out the lights
Kiss yourself goodnight cause there's a killer
And he's coming after you
Kiss yourself goodnight, tonight
Cause there's a killer and he's coming after you

Oh oh, oh oh

Don't turn out the lights
Kiss yourself goodnight cause there's a killer
And he's coming after you
Kiss yourself goodnight, tonight
Cause there's a killer and he's coming after you

Don't turn out the lights, kiss yourself goodnight
Cause there's a killer and he's coming after you
Don't turn out the lights, tonight cause there's a killer

Oh oh, oh oh

    General CommentI think the guy singing is the killer he's talking about. He's warning people about himself.

    My OpinionI swear this song was written for Heath's Joker in The Dark Knight.
    Even though this song came out before the movie, these lyrics sound perfect for The Joker.

    My InterpretationI think that has sort of two meanings?

    One is the obvious - warning others of him beign a killer.

    But the other one that sprang to my mind was mainstreaming of music.
    "I’m fearless now, but it cost my soul" lots of very manufactured singers seem completely unbeatable but also a bit... personality-less

    "A man-made monstrosity"

    "Why’d you think I do the things I do?
    For shadows haunted me like ghosts
    So I became what I feared the most" being pressured into it?

    I dunno. the mroe I think, the less it makes sense... (:

    General CommentI think it could be about drugs, but then again you could say that about a LOT of songs.
