"Natural Born Killer" as written by Zachary James Baker, James Owen Sullivan, Matthew Charles Sanders, Jonathan Seward and Brian Elwin Haner....
One snap for the dying
One click to end the day
Another story with a mangled scene
It couldn't happen any other way

You wanna talk about it?
I'm begging you to walk in my shoes any time
Watch the clock 'til you unwind
You wanna cry about it
It's making me consider that I've lost my mind
The way I see, you must be blind

So this is the world you left behind
This is the guilt that consumes you

So die alone
This is the one thing that I won't do
So say your prayers
'Cause I ain't leaving here without you

Can't bribe me with money
Can't shower me with shame
Another killer from a broken home
Until you come on me with manic fame

You wanna know about it?
Well I'ma be fucking with you every time
Story broken, you're behind
Yeah when you ask about it?
You can rest assured I'll give you my best side
Seems we all have friends to find

So this is the hate I've been born to
Full are the tales of the untrue

So die alone
This is one thing that I won't do
So say your prayers
'Cause I ain't leaving here without you

And I'm waiting
Waiting for the days to slowly pass me by
(And all the promises I'll find)
No hesitating, you've pulled the trigger now your story's left behind
I know you want to see me fry
Lock my soul you hope to burn

So die alone
This is the one thing that I won't do
So say your prayers
'Cause I ain't leaving here without you

To die unknown
Would crush the fish-lens we all see through
To clear the glare
Expose the ugliness we hold true

    My Interpretation"Another story with a mangled scene
    It couldn't happen any other way"

    To me, that almost seems like a cryptic tribute to the Rev. After his death, the band kept saying that he had to die tragically young like that, because since he was a kid at heart, he wasn't meant to grow old and die any other way.

    Just a thought.

    Lyric CorrectionOne snap for the dieing
    One click to end the day
    Another story with a mangled scene
    It couldn't happen any other way

    You wanna talk about it?
    I'm begging you to walk in my shoes any time
    Watch the clock 'til you unwind
    You wanna cry about it?
    It's making me just sentimental, lost my mind
    The way I see, you must be blind

    So this is the world you left behind
    This is the guilt that consumes you

    So die alone
    This is the one thing that I won't do
    So say your prayers
    'Cause I ain't leaving here without you

    Can't bribe me with money
    Can't shower me with shame
    Another killer from a broken home
    Until you come on me with many things

    You wanna know about it?
    Well I'mma be fucking with you every time
    Story broken, you're behind
    Yeah when you ask about it?
    You can rest assured I'll give you my best side
    Seem we all have friends to find

    So this is the hate I've been born to
    Full of the tales of the untrue

    So die alone
    This is the one thing that I won't do
    So say your prayers
    'Cause I ain't leaving here without you

    And I'm waiting
    Waiting for the days to slowly pass me by
    (And all the promises I'll find)
    Don't hesitated, you've pulled the trigger now your story's left behind
    (I know you want to see me cry)
    Lock my soul you hope to burn

    So die alone
    This is the one thing that I won't do
    So say your prayers
    'Cause I ain't leaving here without you

    To die unknown
    Would crush the fuch-mens we all see through
    To care the glare
    Expose the ungliness we hold true

    General Commentby now im pretty sure everyones established that the majority of the album is about the rev.. to me it sounds partly like an attack on the media and the way a life or death becomes nothing but a story and partly about how they are struggling to deal with the rev's death.. most people become a little crazy because of the intensity of emotions when someone passes and it seems that in hurt and anger they are lashing out at the media's coverage even tho they already know what the media is like, "it couldnt happen any other way"...

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs on the album..And of the album.
    I love the lyrics, and Matt's voice.

    ~R.I.P. THE REV~

    ~You wanna talk about it? I'm begging you to walk in my shoes any time.~

    ~I know it's hurting you, but it's killing me~
