"Crime Scene Part One" as written by and Greg Dulli....
Tonight, tonight I say goodbye
To everyone who loves me
Stick it to my enemies, tonight
Then I disappear
Bathe my path in shining light
Set the dials to thrill me
Every secret has its price
This one's set to kill

Too loose, too tight, too dark, too bright
A lie, the truth, which one should I use?
If the lie succeeds
Then you'll know what I mean
When I tell you I have secrets
To attend

Do you think I'm beautiful?
Or do you think I'm evil?
Will you take me for a ride?
The one that never ends
Too loose, too tight, too dark, too bright
A lie, the truth, which one shall I use?
If the lie succeeds
Then you'll know what I mean
When I tell you I have secrets
To attend

Tonight, tonight I say goodbye
To everything that thrills me
As I throw the chains
I forged in life
To shatter on the floor

As I dream all the evidence
Is piling up against me
As I breathe all the essence rare
Is falling off the vine
And if you knew, just how smooth
I could stop it on the dime
You could meet me at the
Scene of the crime

    My InterpretationOf course the suicide story is probably the best 'meaning' for this song, but sometimes I listen to it from another perspective: A guy who cheats on his wife/girlfriend finds himself cornered. His lies are on the verge of being revealed. So, by being discovered... he knows he 'kills' his 'old' relationship

    General Commenti'm sure i read an interview with Dulli somewhere and he said this song is about a girl committing suicide. Makes sense when you listen to the words.


    "tonight, tonight I said goodbye,
    to everyone who's loved me..."


    sad and beautiful.

    My InterpretationYa I always thought this song was about someone killing him or herself. I would guess herself though as some of the words used seem more used when talking about or describing women rather than men.
