"Helena" as written by Michael C. Emanuel and Paul Caiafa....
If I cut off your arms and cut off your legs
Would you still love me anyway?
If you're bound and you're gagged, draped and displayed
Would you still love me anyway?
Why don't you love me anyway?

Cutting with the knife, blood is spilling everywhere
She will be my wife
Secondary spine
Incisions must be accurate
I know just what to do
My hands are trembling
I can't spare to slip up with this knife

Her beauty so illogical
The beast come gliding in
Hideous chameleon stripped down to her skin
Dance to the burning flame
Pleasure exhumes the pain
The night bursts into flame
Dance Helena... Dance

If I cut off your arms and cut off your legs
Would you still love me anyway?
There's a spot on the floor where your limbs used to be
And I close the door on my fantasies
Why don't you love me anyway

    General CommentMy favorite Misfits song all the way........It follows the concept of the "Boxing Helena" movie! A guy loves a woman so much that so she doesn't have a chance to leave him he cuts her limbs......that way she depends absolutely on him....and she can't leave him! LoL

    General CommentThe Misfits with Danzig were better, but this is a pretty rockin' song. The Old Misfits are gone, accept it and embrace the new band.....or you can just listen to the old CD's, I don't care.

    General Commentobviously the song is about the movie boxing Helena but on a deeper level i guess the song is about lonleyness, its about wanting somone to the pint that your driven to hating them. "dance helana dance" is my favourite line in the song, its so ironic the idea is so full of spite.

    General CommentI think that it means he loves her so much and she doesn't love him so in order to get her to stay with him he kills her. That way he can forget about her.

    General CommentWell, I've never heard this, but yuuu... why would you people like this? Amputating body parts is one of the things that freak me out the most. Nothing should ever be amputated. people should rather die than lose any limbs. gross gross gross. I vomit if I even hear the word "amputation"

    General CommentOk, every song on here has the same argument, Danzig or Graves. I think Danzig was better but Graves is good too. Just different. And i just saw them 4 days ago at The Whiskey with Jerry singing and it was a sick show. The only thing that has changed is the voice. They are still good songs. I'm tired of people hating the new misfits for no reason other than that it isn't Glenn singing. If he is the only reason you listened to them then are you really that big of a misfits fan? Line-ups change, people leave, deal with it. Don't hate the rest of the band for continuing to play. And since Danzig was only with the band for the first 6 years. They had 6 years with him and 26 years without him. The Newfits are more of a band than the original line-up. You don't say Iron Maiden isn't really Iron Maiden because Paul Di'Anno left. And Jerry shouldn't have made Graves try and be Danzig but can you blame him? They had a great thing going and he didn't wanna lose it. So calm down everyone. They are still the Misfits, they still kick ass.

    My Interpretationwell from my paranoic punk perspective i think that this dude represents everything that is wrong with the world like a political leader that lies in the face of people and he still expects for someone to believe him looking straight at the eyes when he says something, the beauty are his words promising a new world, things are gonna change but all he wants is the media attention and fuck you in the other side, when he close the door of his fantasies is because his reign of chaos is over already and he still wonders why dont you love him anyway if you're being fucked again anyway.
    Also when he says gagged, draped and displayed well you get the idea is like you want to do something but there's law and is all fixed to have you in a nice position, the incisions are accurate and he knows exactly what to do.
