"Red Carpet Massacre" as written by and Floyd Nathaniel/le Bon Hills....
Dark sun rose on the ridge cut clear across the sky
As good a day as any to die
No reservation madam
No reason to know why
Running late stiletto heels
Try to loosen up the wheels

You spend your life in preparation for this day
Breathe in the air; it's loaded with fame
Check out those weapons sister before you hit the fray
String of pearls meet bits of gems
Enter the battle of the lenses

Red carpet massacre
Don't want to hassle you
Red carpet massacre
Deathstalk papparazzi yeah
Red carpet massacre
It's going to mess with you
We're in business
You're on the hit list

There's not so many now still standing on their feet
Their knives are out and singing so sweet
Engage with sharper minds that cut you when you meet
Anyplace to mess around
When someone wants to take you down

Maybe you think you're above this
But baby we know that you love it
Baby you know where to shove it
Apply your lipstick
For dying in public

Red carpet massacre
Don't want to hassle you
Red carpet massacre
Deathstalk papparazzi yeah
Red carpet massacre
Don't want to mess with you
Now it's time
Next in line
We're so busted
Done and dusted

    General CommentTo me this song like many other songs of late is taking a shot at Paris & Britney and the rest of the socially inept media whores. How they pretend they dont like the circus following them everywhere, but they really live on it. Just my thoughts.

    General CommentHere are the lyrics for the first verse from dd.com. They are a little bit different. I can understand that it's hard to understand what is being said sometimes.

    Red Carpet Massacre

    dark sun rose on the ridge cut clear across the sky
    as good a day as any to die
    no reservation Madam no reason to know why
    running late stiletto heels
    strike the crew, send up the wheels
    you spend a life in preparation for this day
    breathe in the air it’s loaded with fame
    check out those weapons sister before you hit the fray
    string o pearls -V- ditzy gems
    enter the battle of the lenses

    red carpet massacre
