"Doing It to Death" as written by and Jamie Hince Alison Mosshart....
Baby save it, we're wasted
I know we gotta slow it down
But when the waves come, you face them
And you know we can't stop it now

Heads up we're in a dead club
Put your hands up and do your dipsy and dropsy
And line up, we're hanging up
We're double sixing it, night after night
Doing it to death
Doing it to death

Baby lately the plans we're making
Are the shape of things that never come
Hold your horses, the lights up
Can't feel it coming back around

Listen up, it's picking up
Put your hands up and do your kicksy and lipsy
Your times up, we're hanging up
We're double sixing it, night cause tonight
We're doing it to death
Doing it to death

We're double sixing it night after night after night
We're double sixing it night after night after night
We're double sixing it night after night after night

Doing it to death
Doing it to death
Doing it to death
Doing it to death
Doing it to death
Doing it to death

    General CommentI would say it is about a couple that are too deep in the alcohol and drug scene and are literally doing it to death. I mean the first line saying "We're wasted." Then the line of regret and knowing that they "have to slow it down." but the waves and urge keep coming and they know they can't stop it now. But my favorite line through the whole song is "We're double sixing it, night after night" Pretty much digging their own graves (6 feet under) night after night. Killing themselves through over-indulgence.

    Of course that is just my interpretation. Great song though and that guitar rift is just intoxicating in itself.

    General CommentSick song (and video). Dark and and sexy in that classic Kills way. Love the guitar and harmonies

    Any ideas about what 'double sixing' means?
