"It kills" as written by and Greg Dulli....
Over and over
I get to know myself
Over and over
There ain't nobody else
Imperceptible the lines I draw to you
It kills to watch you love another

I should have known better
When I caught you wild
You were incredible
Never knew you like I know you now
You are illegible
Imperceptible the lines that form the screw
It kills to watch you love another

Over and over
I get to know myself
Over and over
There ain't nobody else
A receptacle of lies
Construed to waste your time
It kills to watch you love another

Over and over
I get to know myself
Over and over
There ain't nobody else
Imperceptible the lines
Construed to waste your time
It kills to watch you love another
It kills to watch you love another
It kills to watch you love another

    My InterpretationSounds to me like the thoughts of someone reflecting on the lengths they've gone to keep a lover that doesn't want to be kept. The singer is despondent at seeing the object of their desire with another lover and has gone to great pains to find a reason to stay a part of this person's life. Or the singer is stalking the person after they've moved on. Haunting and lovely song.
