    When Emilie was in the asylum, as she was writing the album "Opheliac", she was looking for a sort of punch line for her album. On certain occasions, the inmates were allowed to watch television. An inmate, Christina, was extremely excited to show Emilie an episode of a television show which I cannot remember the name of at the moment. In the show, the main character said the phrase, "Let the record show," and Emilie was really excited because she had found the ending for her record. She thought that it was great to say,in the very end, that he "murdered" her, not to mention the clever play on words (haha, record). The song is all about how sometimes you have to play the whore in life, but never take it too far, lest you get out of control. The girl in the song is giving him a "chance to prove the rumors true" meaning that everyone around her is saying that the man is a bad man yet she never listened, and now she regrets it.
