Baby join me in death
We are so young
Our lives have just begun
That's already we are considering
Escape from this world

And we've waited for so long
For this moment to come
Was so anxious to be together
Together in death

Oh oh oh
Would you die tonight for love?
Baby join me in death
Would you die?
Baby join me in death
Would you die tonight for love?
Baby join me in death

This world is so cruel
Placing were here only to lose
So before life tears us apart, let
Death bless me with you

Oh oh oh
Would you die tonight for love?
Baby join me in death
So would you die?
Baby join me in death
Would you die tonight for love?
Baby join me in death
Join me in death

oh oh oh
This life ain't worth living.
Join me, join me, join me,
Join me, join me, join me

This life ain't worth living
Oh oh oh
Would you die tonight for love?
Baby join me in death
So would you die?
Baby join me in death
Would you die tonight for love?
Baby join me in death

Baby join me in death.

    General CommentThere are a few points I think I should make here.
    1. HIM is not a satanist band. As previously stated, the name 'His Infernal Majesty' was meant as a joke. Unfortunately, coming from Scandinavia does not help them live down this rumour.
    2. The fact that the singer wears makeup and women's clothing in no way effects the sound of the music, or the music composition. Some of the greatest artists in rock history wore makeup, David Bowie and Iggy Pop being two good examples.
    And now the negative.
    3. I have a feeling that this band is just using the gimmicks mentioned above to sell records. They seem to aim at the depressed, alienated teenage girl demographic; which we all know continues to grow in the United States, and around the world. Every part of their image; the way they dress, the lyrical content, the flirtation with Satanism through the use of phrases that are commonly associated with Satanism (666, Latin song titles, etc.), is designed specifically to appeal to a certain demographic.
    4. The lyrical content is unecessarily blunt. This song is a perfect example of HIM's typical lyrical content; we're in love, and life sucks, so let's kill ourselves. This is not the message we need to be sending to people who are on the verge of contemplating suicide.
    5. In my opinion, the music is nothing more than generic goth metal. Just my opinion there, but I would rather listen to something more thematically satisfying. I do like their cover of '(Don't Fear) The Reaper", but only because I like the original. HIM transformed it into a suicide anthem, in my view.
