"I'll Take Famous Murders For $500" as written by Joshua Stotts, Jordan Stribling and Mark Evan Maxwell....
last night I woke up to you talking in your sleep
describing a room I've never smelt, I've never seen
here we go again, the rollercoaster breaks and bends

I lifted up your shirt, saw the scratches on your back
you said you never would, but a scar's a proven fact
come with me let's drive
take a trip where heaven lies

smile and wave, you're on your way
to hell and back girl you know you're drowning
with heavy heart you sank too far
to hell and back in a sea of deadly sin
I can see you sinking in
in a sea of deadly..

today I woke up to the static on the screen
looked left then right, then screamed in relief
where has your body gone?
where has your body gone?

I took my time, yeah I took it slow
peeled off your scabs before I let you go
into the waves I'm cursed
your shallow sin reversed

smile and wave, you're on your way
to hell and back girl you know you're drowning
with heavy heart you sank too far
to hell and back in a sea of deadly sin
I can see you sinking in
in a sea of deadly sin
I can see you sinking in
in a sea of deadly..

smile and wave, you're on your way
to hell and back girl you know you're drowning
with heavy heart you sank too far
to hell and back in a sea of deadly..

smile and wave, you're on your way
to hell and back girl you know you're drowning
with heavy heart you sank too far
to hell and back in a sea of deadly sin
I can see you sinking in
in a sea of deadly sin
I can see you sinking in
in a sea of deadly..

    General CommentThis is about this guy's girlfriend that cheated on him even though she said she loved him and would never hurt him. Then he killed her. There is a reference to her being swept away by the ocean but im not sure if it is literal because it also refereces that she's drowning in her sin.
