"Kill Me Quickly" as written by Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge, Dustin Michael Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi....
Can we,
Can we kill each other quickly,
Quick enough so I won't feel it?
A shot of strobe light anesthesia and I'll be fine
'Cause I'm beginning to feel cold.

My hands are shaking from fear,
White from clutching my pride, red from cutting you
And blue from telling lies.

'Cause I'm sick of the stabbing, I'm sick of the breaking
I'm sick of the bleeding until we fall down.
Sick of this circle of death that we dance through again
And again, just lay me in the ground
Let's fall asleep together, hold me darling 'cause I'm scared,
And I can't do this alone.

But I need your heartbeat to haunt me, your cold lips to breathe,
A promise that tomorrow we'll wake up somewhere new.

    General CommentI think the fact that red, white, and blue are mentioned along with death that this song is written about the base in which America was built on. He seems to be fed up with the killing and he wants to find the one he loves and commit suicide quick enough so they wont feel it, and when they wake up, they can live together in a better place where war doesnt exist. This song fucking rocks.

    General CommentOMG one of my best friends said this song is about a moshpit...what the hell is wrong with him. Prolly the only reference to that is sick of this circle of death that we dance through
    again and again, just lay me in the ground, my other friend said it is about war...90 percent right...i know it is close to war but it is something i cant figure out.

    General CommentWhy does everyone have to try and guess what a song means? Don't guess what it means to the band, KNOW what it means to you cause guess what guys, the band a)doesn't give to shits what you guess and b) won't tell you what it means anyway.

    General Commentseriously, this forum kinda setup is so that ppl looking for a song about "a moshpit" will be able to find one.... not saying i agree with the moshpit theory, just that its what people want to do. its human nature to alot of intelligent ppl to analyze things until you know all of it, like what the song's meaning are or why our economy is so stupid. its just a matter of opinion.

    General Commentstupiditiy shows his face again, lets go to a songmeanings site and but hurt when ppl help eachother figure out what a song means, Anywho- being a loyal fan of Edgar Allen Poe,(as my name shows,"masque of the red death" i am going towards the simple answer, its gotta be about a girl, the killing is the fights every relationship has, everything he is sick of could be the lies and the deciet. and at the end her love means so much to him, through thick and thin he needs her there to promise she'll be there when he wakes up, forgiven.
