"Amateur Night" as written by and Damien Jurado....
first came the screams and blood on the floor
the alcohol & magazines
in my flashlight, you're a star
razorblade that cuts you clean

smile for the camera
take off that dress
twenty dollars for a kiss

it's me who made you
it's me who will take you

i am not an evil man
i just have a habit i can't kick
it starts with an urge and ends with this
hang up the phone, i ain't finished yet

    General CommentAWSOME song. The first paragraph seems like it's about a girl who kills her self. The rest makes it seems that she was murdered.

    General CommentI thought he was talking about rape.
    But I loved this. I fucking LOVED the music video.
    I saw the music video before I ran across the internet to find the lyrics.
    But I know Damien's little[r] brother, Drake, who filmed it.
    I go to school with the girl in the video. She's beautiful.
    And Drake did a fucking Beautiful job.
    Damien's voice lulls me... :] I love everything about it.

    General CommentThanks, CCpunk 82, I didn't quite catch the meaning, I thought it was about sucide, anyway, now that I do, the song is amazing, and scary a little, kind of like a sociopath describing his murder without any care.
