"Where Good Girls Go To Die" as written by and Sean Brennan....
Step into this picture
release all your light
I think God has gone mad here tonight
You can't believe your eyes, control is so hard to keep
obsession can be hell
from which you'll never be free
It's all for the taking, here tonight
Where good girls go to die
that's where I'll be-
Waiting for my love with my heart on my sleeve
Forget about the future
forget about the past.
My heart beats so, my hands are cold
please God make this moment last
You seek to fill me
with virtues I lack
I'll turn your pure white wings to pure black.
You've pushed too far and now you've lost control can't you see
You thought you were the master but you're down on
your knees. It's all for the taking, here tonight
Where good girls go to die that's where I'll be,
remembering our love as if it were a disease.
Forget about the future
it wasn't meant to last
My heart beats slow my hands are cold
Oh God it's the end at last.

    General CommentI think it's about a bad boy who gets a good girl to fall in love with him. Her feelings are not returned, though he pretends they are. He eventually depurifies her, steals her morals and takes her virtue. He then leaves her, having changed her into someone she's not because she's in love with him.

    General CommentIn my opinion, this song means much the same as the one chick above me. He takes this girl and they fall in love, he warps her mind and its over. (well basically)... but its an amazing song none the less

    General Commentyes i agree with all of it.

    but also i also think that when he leaves her i think she kill herself:
    "...My heart beats slow my hands are cold
    Oh God it's the end at last."

    General Commenta girl, really pure and innocent fells in love with a "darker" man, her love changes her entire world as she "steps in this picture" and her "good side" is gone "release all your light" even the "darker" man cant understand the change of the girl and he thinks "god has gone mad" (to let her innocent girl fell in love with a darker man) the girl left heaven for the obsession's hell. The man now wants to take advantage of the girl's love for him and obviously seduces her, then the girl believes she can have the upper hand in the relationship and turn the man into a slave "thought you where the master" & "fill me with virtues i lack" But the man is now angry and no more want to make love with her (he never loved her i think) so he pushes her away claiming the relationship has no future (heart beats slow/hands are cold i think means he is very distant and without feelings)...1 of the explanations i give to this song probably stupid but oh well

    Song MeaningThe meaning is about a specific relationship Sean had that evntually turned bad and where he broke up with the girl - hence the lyrics "remembering our love as if it were a disease" at the end chorus, lyrics that REPLACE the normal chorus from earlier in the song that say quite the opposite. Jeez, people, come on! Again, Sean has said this in interviews. I don't understand why people don't understand that these songs are all based in reality.
