Up the stairs
Behind the door
She was sitting there crying
She smashed all the glasses on the mirror
Which was shattered all across the room

She screamed so loud
Until she was laughing
Well now there's no more reasons for her to cry
It was so late, it was four am

I know I know I know I know
He will never hurt you again
I know I know I know I know
He will never hurt you again

Up the stairs
By the bed
There was a dead man waiting
Waiting for someone to find him out
And bury him deep down the ground

He looked so scared
But not regretful
In the other side of town a car drives fast
Hard to tell fear from happiness

I know I know I know I know
He will never hurt you again
I know I know I know I know
He will never hurt you again

Rat is dead, rat is dead, rat is dead

Up the stairs
Behind the door
She was seating there crying
She smashed all the glasses on the mirror
Which was shattered all across the room

She screamed so loud
Until she was laughing
Well now there's no more reasons for her to cry
It was so late, it was four am

I know I know I know I know
He will never hurt you again, girl

    General CommentIt's, basically, a "Janie's Got a Gun" follow-up... :D

    Btw, I also love the chorus! Especially the riff!

    General Commentquickly becoming one of my new favorite songs!

    i just think it's about this girl who's been hurt by a boy way to many times and she's not gonna let it happen anymore so she take things into her own hands, and kills him or at least makes him regret what he did to her.

    sucha good son! (: haha

    General CommentCan't believe so many people are slagging off the new album! It's different but that doesn't mean it's bad. CSS will always be CSS, just because their music goes in a different direction doesn't mean they're shit. CSS FOREVER!

    General CommentSounds like a song the Pixies would have done.
    Love it.

    And I agree with waffles! and Crzy Angel - AWESOME LYRICS. Something extremely haunting about it.
