"Looks That Kill" as written by and Nikki Sixx....
Now listen up
She's razor sharp
If she don't get her way
She'll slice you apart
Now she's a cool, cool black
She moves like a cat
If you don't get her name
Well you might not make it back

She's got the looks that kill, that kill
She's got the looks that kill, that kill
She's got the look

(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)

Now she's bulletproof
She keeps her motor clean
Oh, and believe me, you
She's a number thirteen
The clock strikes midnight
She's lookin' louder and louder
She's gonna turn on her juice, boy
Well then she'll turn on her power

She's got the looks that kill, that kill
She's got the looks that kill, that kill
She's got the look

(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)

She's got looks that kill
She's got the look

Hey

Now listen up
She's razor sharp
If she don't get her way
She'll slice you apart
Well she's a cool, cool black
Moves like a cat
If you don't get her name
You might not make it back

She's got the looks that kill, that kill
She's got the looks that kill, that kill
She's got the look

(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)
(She's got looks that kill)

    General CommentI won't attempt to comment about the lyrical interpretation, as I'll leave that to someone far more qualified. I will say, however, that this is one of the most powerful sounding riff-based recordings ever. Mick's guitar was so well captured, it's amazing that it came out of one guitar. Brilliant track.

    General CommentWhen nikki went to se his grandmother in the nursing home, the first words out of her mouth were: "you wrote a song about me?"
    "no"
    "yes, Looks That KiLL!"
    Obviously she was pissed. They really didnt have that good of a relationship

    General CommentFirst of all, the song is not about his grandmother, its about his mother. who wasn't in a nursing home she was in a mental home, Nikki and his mother did not have a good relationship at all, because Nikki was an asshole as a kid, who would hurt himself then blame it on his mother to the police, anyway, Nikki went to the Mental home cos his mum had a breakdown. when he got their all his mother said was "you wrote that song about me didn't you ?? with Nikki to reply what song and her to reply to that LOOKS THAT KILL. and he took her back to her house and tried to start a relationship up with her, but it couldn't work so he did what he did when he was a kid and walked out
