"Kill of the Night" as written by Julian Thomas Hamilton, Virginia Claire (gin) Wigmore and Gary Clark....
The street's a liar
I'm gonna lure you into the dark
My cold desire
To hear the boom, boom, boom of your heart

The danger is I'm dangerous
And I might just tear you apart
Oh, ah, oh

[Chorus]
I'm gonna catch ya
I'm gonna get ya, get ya
Oh, ah, oh
I wanna taste the way that you bleed, oh
You're my kill of the night

Now you're mine
But what do I do with you, boy
I'll take your heart
To kick around as a toy

The danger is I'm dangerous
And I might just tear you apart
Oh

[Chorus]
I'm gonna catch ya
I'm gonna get ya, get ya
Oh, ah, oh
I wanna taste the way that you bleed, oh
I'm gonna catch ya
I'm gonna get ya, get ya
Oh, ah, oh
I wanna taste the way that you bleed, oh

This is a bad town for such a pretty face
This is a bad town for such a pretty face
This is a bad town for such a pretty face
This is a bad town for such a pretty face
This is a bad town for such a pretty face
This is a bad town for such a pretty face
This is a bad town for such a pretty face
This is a bad town for such a pretty face
Oh

[Chorus]

    General CommentPretty much about a user in a relationship who see's their partners as their 'victims'

    Also I take the lyric " the street's a liar" as the user trying to deflect rumors their victim may have heard 'on the street

    My InterpretationOkay, I'm gonna break this down using the protagonist as the singer and the victim as whoever the protagonist is 'singing' to.

    "The street's a liar
    I'm gonna lure you into the dark"

    The protagonist is telling the victim that the rumor's aren't true all the while drawing the victim in closer.

    "My cold desire
    To hear the boom, boom, boom of your heart"

    The protagonist wants the victim to fall in love with them.

    "The danger is I'm dangerous
    And I might just tear you apart
    Oh, ah, oh"

    The protagonist knows that the victim should be worried.

    "I'm gonna catch ya
    I'm gonna get ya, get ya
    Oh, ah, oh"

    This part basically speaks for itself. The protagonist will make the victim fall in love with them.

    "I wanna taste the way that you bleed, oh"

    The protagonist wants to see at the hurt they caused the victim.

    "You're my kill of the night"

    The protagonist is basically telling the victim they're going to be just another name on their list.

    "Now you're mine
    But what do I do with you, boy"

    The protagonist has officially got the victim to fall in love and wonders what to do next.

    "I'll take your heart
    To kick around as a toy"

    The protagonist decides to play with the victim a little more.

    "This is a bad town for such a pretty face"

    This is the protagonist telling the victim that they came to the wrong place looking for love. It's repeated over and over to instill more hurt upon the victim.

    Basically, the protagonist is telling you the story of how they're going to break the victims heart step by step just for the fun of it.

    General CommentAlmost sounds vampyric- reminds me a of song by Sting called "Moon over Bourbon Street". I like it- dark and disturbing, like Gin's voice.
