Surprise! you're dead!
Ha ha! open your eyes
See the world as it used to be when you used to be in it
When you were alive and when you were in love
And when I took it from you!
It's not over yet
You don't remember?
I won't let you forget
The hatred I bestowed
Upon your neck with a fatal blow
From my teeth and my tongue
I've drank and swallowed, but it's just begun
Now you are mine
I'll keep killing you until the end of time
Surprise! you're dead!
Guess what?
It never ends...
The pain, the torment and torture, profanity
Nausea, suffering, perversion, calamity
You can't get away

    General CommentI love trying to say this bit -
    "See the world as it used to be when you used to be in it
    When you were alive and when you were in love
    And when I took it from you!"

    Impossible!

    General Commentvampires.. all the way. Look at "morning after, and the real thing".. and think of those songs in context with louis's embrace in Interview with a vampire.. the real thing is pretty much verbatim about being embraced by a vampire.

    General CommentWell, in my opinion the song entails the story of not specifically a chicken (or vampire chicken for that matter), but all animals being raised and slaughtered by people, and the relationship we have with those animals.
    True, judging only by the chorus the song could refer to any act of slaying - human, animal, vampire, etc.
    But lets read the verse and second chorus -
    "The hatred I bestowed, Upon your neck with a fatal blow" - the most common method of animal execution is by throat slitting.
    "From my teeth and my tongue - I've drank and swallowed, but it's just begun, Now you are mine" - eating the flesh and drinking the blood of the animal, some pagan cultures believed it even gave the individual the power that the beast he consumed had.
    "I'll keep killing you until the end of time" - people always have and might always will enslave and eat animals. (same context in second chorus - "It never ends... The pain, the torment and torture, profanity")
    In summary, stop breeding animals and slaying them like product. if you want to eat meat you should be man (or woman) enough to stare it in the eye as you kill it yourself, and watch the life sip out of its body, and not let someone else do the killing for you and buy corpses in the supermarket you f**king pussies!
    Don't eat meat.

    General CommentI honestly think when Mike wrote the lyrics to this song, he just wanted them to really go with the music, which I think is achieved. No particular deep meaning.
