Hey Miss Murder, can I
Hey Miss Murder, can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life?

With just a look they shook
And heavens bowed before him
Simply a look can break your heart

The stars that pierce the sky
He left them all behind
We're left to wonder why
He left us all behind

Hey Miss Murder, can I
Hey Miss Murder, can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life?

Dreams of his crash won't pass
Oh, how they all adored him
Beauty will last when spiraled down

The stars that mystify
He left them all behind
And how his children cry
He left us all behind

Hey Miss Murder, can I
Hey Miss Murder, can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life?

What's the hook, the twist, within this verbose mystery?
I would gladly bet my life upon it
That the ghost you love, your ray of light will fizzle out
Without hope
We're the empty set, just flowing through, wrapped in skin
Ever-searching for what we were promised
Reaching for that golden ring we'd never let go
But who would ever let us put our filthy hands upon it?

Hey Miss Murder, can I
Hey Miss Murder, can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life?

Hey Miss Murder, can I
Hey Miss Murder, can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life?

    General CommentIt seems to me there's some sort of powerful male figure here...

    "With just a look they shook
    And heavens bowed before him
    Simply a look can break your heart"

    In these next lyrics it seems as though, even though he is a powerful person, he avoids responsibility, and others had to pay the consequences; they were left alone.

    "The stars that pierce the sky
    He left them all behind
    We're left to wonder why
    He left us all behind"

    "Dreams of his crash won't pass
    Oh, how they all adored him
    Beauty will last when spiraled down"

    and here ^ a "crash" is referred to...so in his running, he failed at some point and came crashing to death. Here theyre mourning his death and remembering him.

    "The stars that mystify
    He left them all behind
    And how his children cry
    He left us all behind"

    Now with his responsibility left behind...they are alone and there is no one to take care of them.


    "What's the hook, the twist, within this verbose mystery?
    I would gladly bet my life upon it
    That the ghost you love, your ray of light will fizzle out
    Without hope
    We're the empty set, just flowing through, wrapped in skin
    Ever-searching for what we were promised
    Reaching for that golden ring we'd never let go
    But who would ever let us put our filthy hands upon it?"

    Here is seems like davey is singing out to those hurting, those who were promised things then abandoned. he's stating his ignorance for why, but in his reference to a hook...he in confirming that there IS a reason for it all... "But who would ever let us put our filthy hands upon it?" is basically saying that we may not be good enough to know the answers, ever.
