Killing Loneliness Lyrics
Pierce into the flesh of today
Suicide of love took away all that matters
And buried the remains in an unmarked grave in your heart
With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness (Killing...

I heard from some interview with ville that this song was about his friend who had troubles with drugs which definitely makes sense when you listen to the song. I think it is cleverly disguised as a love song ... as most other HIM songs are!

The real meaning of this song is about a friend who over came a heroin addiction. I saw HIM two nights ago in STL. and the played this song and that is what he said this song is about.

This song may sound like it's about a generic lonely person, but according to lead singer Ville Valo, he wrote it about his close friend Brandon Novak, who used to be a junkie, a user of heroin. Novak called heroin "His Companion" and blamed his addiction on the need to "Kill His Loneliness," since he was abandoned by his family.

Its about a toxic relationship is what I get. I guess the drug thing makes sense but I get alot of vibes about being in a toxic relationship. Words said to start a war means constant arguing. Venomous kiss is a kiss from the person and the venomous helps to identify that its coming from someone who has a toxic impact on you. Idk just I'm interpreting it that way.

Can't help laughing my ass off at the number of people quoting wikipedia as some source of exact information.
Gees people,.. quoting wikipedia??? *shakes head* Even Valo makes fun of wikipedia as it is full of false information.
Ville Valo himself has stated the meaning of this song in interviews as being about Brandon Novak and his heroin addiction.

it's a love song and venomous kiss means passionate. and this entire song is about novak thanking the girl for saving him from being alone. and show him he can love again. i think this is what it's about in my opinion.

This song is probably about how somebody is fighting to get of drugs with a friend or a lover "killing loneliness with you" and the lyrics "With the venomous kiss you gave me " the effect the drugs have had on him.

It's about Ville's friend who committed suicide due to an overdose. And his friend told him that he did those drugs because it would "kill his lonliness".

well i doubt what everybody says about finding new love.
I think its about trying to be with someone who always said no but then said yes and made you incredibly happy.

everyone says it's about brandon novak; which may be true . but to me it's something different . to me this song is about how this guy has had love troubles in his life, and there was always that one girl who pushed the pain away and killed his loneliness, the girl he's in love with .

yes most of you are right it was about his drug addicted friend when he said it was his was of killing lonlieness. ville wrote it to show how everyone has their different way of killing lonliness.

Anyone who says this song is based on love is wrong, in a way. It based on Villes fried Brandon Novak who was a huge heroin attic who relapse more then once, and he asked Novak why he used the heroin and he replied because it "killed te loneliness" he was feeling. Novak I think is doing better now. This is a great song

In an interview, Ville said that the meaning to Killing Loneliness is he knew a guy who was troubled. Nothing ever went his way in life, he eventually became homeless. He eventually committed suicide. By killing himself, he killed his loneliness.

I saw HIM live and they Ville said it was about his friend who was addicted to heroin.
I love the song...i do. It's touching right down to my soul. That's why if felt like interpreting this was easy for me. I don't so much think that he found a 'person.' Maybe he just found peace. you know? I mean in all honesty it could be a person but maybe he found a way around all the troubling shit in his head and his life and now he's killing loneliness with his peace. Meaning his peace is giving him the flexibility to LIVE and not be pulled down by his impending depression.
I'm very deep about it I know but that's what I think.

All of you are wrong. This song is about Brandon Novak who is a frequent heroin user. If you have ever seen some episodes of VIVA LA BAM then you have probably seen him. Anyway, he was put in rehab to get off the drug but he's gottem kicked out because he was found with heroin pills on him.. Ville just says that he is killing himself now....killing loneliness means he's killing his loneliness every time he takes heroin because being lonely (or suicidal) is a side effect of heroin.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
