Burn

Story Behind The Song

I've read many books about serial killers. One trait that most share is a sense of egotism. They often believe that they can outsmart most anyone. In the song, I thought it would be interesting to have the victim become the killer and the downfall of the criminal.

Lyrics

Follow me, I?ll take you down
to where you wish that you could go.
You can give the children nightmares
It will teach them of the world.
I?ll hold your hand and smile
as the road we?ve made unfurls
And I?ll laugh as you burn in hell

Are you a cannibal, a necrophile,
a little bit of both?
A box of loolies in your closet
and your lamps are made of bones
I?m watching through the window
So you think you?re safe at home
And I?ll laugh as you burn in hell

I?m your accomplice
and your victim
I?m your redemption
and your salvation
I?m your revival
But not survival
Cause? I?ll laugh as you burn in hell

You talk to girls out on the street
Somehow they never make it home
You keep their heads around the house
To forget that you?re alone
I see the smoke, it?s rising
As the flesh comes off your bones
And I?ll laugh as you burn in hell

I picked you up outside a bar,
and I took you to the back
I been watching you, Poor Thing!
You thought you?d never meet your match
You?re writhing in the corner
Oh, come on, it?s just a scratch?
How I?ll laugh
as you burn in hell.

I?m your accomplice
and your victim
I?m your redemption
and your salvation
I?m your revival
But not survival
Cause? I?ll laugh
as you burn in hell.
