defrock human
no one stole you
day light murder
from your front room
distilled violent
keep safe
please God!
i got away pedophile
i made it into my own little
Christian school
flung far thy serial will to kill
i got away i got away
drip drip spatter
sparkle glasses
decayed panties
grow up and be good!
i got away lustmord
i made it into my own little
Sacramento
flung far thy thick unconvertible need
i got away i got away
i got away pedophile
i made it into my own little
Christian school
flung far thy serial will to kill
i got away i got away
i got out Richard Chase
i made it to my pink and padlocked door
flung far your thirst to destroy me
i got away i got away

    General CommentRichard Chase earned the nickname "The Vampire of Sacramento" after brutally killing six people, including a child and an infant, then drank their blood and ate some of their organs.

    General CommentWikipedia says Richard Chase was also "A self-described victim of abuse at the hands of his mother". That's probably what this song is referencing him for, to say "I got away from that life" because his serial killings can be viewed as a result of his abusive upbringing, which is clearly what this song is about (an abusive upbringing, and trying to grow up with it).

    (Does anyone know what Lustmord means? I looked it up and all I can find is a musician called Lustmord, and he seems pretty irrelevant).

    General CommentI think he's talking about escaping his sexually abusive childhood, which has been referred to obliquely and repeatedly in Xiu Xiu's music.
