"Tranquilize" as written by and William Roy Francis....
hey little sister
are you ready to dance in the dark
can you believe and defy death?
it's only skin and bones blood in red
in this rotting flesh
hey little sister
are you trapped in a life
where you need a little something to kill time?
a short while till the blood runs red
and the sun won't shine

hey, hey, hey
come tranquilize
i'm willing death come please call me name
we'll die in the sunset
hey, hey, hey
come tranquilize
i'm willing death come please call me namewe'll play in the darkness

hey little sister
have you suffered enough for one life
come down from the clouds now?
i've made a trade for your soul
i'll give you mine
i don't even care how

    My OpinionI love William Control..This song is very Billy Idol "White Wedding".
    I believe its about wishing to swap places with another person but committing suicide instead.

    My InterpretationThis song is about the end of life through suicide.
    The way the song describes it, it almost makes
    the act of suicide ritualistic and beautiful.
    "Die in the sunset" is symbolic of the end of
    things, with the sunset symbolizing that end.
    "Play in the darkness" is putting the act
    itself in the view that suicide is a game one delves in.
    The lines "a short while till the blood runs red
    and the sun won't shine" refers to the immenent
    coming act of suicide.
    The title itself, and repeated lyric, "Tranquilize",
    is hinting at the numbing of the senses, and in
    this song, that happens to be through commiting Suicide.
