A mother sings a lullaby to a child
Sometime in the future the boy goes wild
And all his nerves are feeling some kind of energy

A walk in the woods and I will try
Something under the trees that made you cry
It's so erotic when your make up runs

I got wiring loose inside my head
I got books that I never ever read
I got secrets in my garden shed
I got a scar where all my urges bled

I got people underneath my bed
I got a place where all my dreams are dead
Swim with me into your blackest eyes

A few minutes with me inside my van
Should be so beautiful if we can
I'm feeling something taking over me

    General CommentThe song is a snapshot of the mind of a serial killer. It is upbeat because it is taken from the point of view of the deranged killer, to which everything seems normal. If you raise the volume, you will hear a second layer of vocals in a more scratchy and deeper voice. This is the real dark and scary voice of the serial killer. "It's so erotic when your makeup runs" refers to the victim crying before his eyes. However, to the serial killer's twisted mind, it's a beautiful and erotic sight.
    The chorus refers to bodies or trophies of victims in his garden shed, books he read but misinterpreted, scars he'd gotten accomplishing his sexual misdeeds. It's a messed up song, but sang and played beautifully to paint the normalcy of actions seen through the eyes of the killer.
