Serial Killer Lyrics
Do you that he could be you
If i pray really tight, get into a fake bar fight
While I'm walking down the avenue
If I lay really quiet, I know what I do isn't right
I can stop what I have...

I imagine this song is about a girl who really does have intentions of finding love one night, but she is easily bored. She gets a thrill out of flirting and attention getting attention from guys and has a tendancy of leading guys on. She knows what she does is wrong and shes warning them, shes only going to make them fall for her and land up hurting them like all her other victims. she sees herself a serial killer because breaking hearts is like taking a bit of life away from some body .

this song is about a girl who is so psychotic that she falls in love with every guy she meets and doesn't want to be but she can't help it. She gets bored of guys easily and therefore she plays them like a gameboy. She sees herself as a serial killer because she makes these men fall in love with her and then she breaks their hearts. When a persons heart is broken they lose a piece of themselves. She is an emotional serial killer. She wants to find that one true love so badly that she sees him in every guy she meets.

The song is about wanting to get the man she loves attention so she will do crazy things like "get into a fake bar fight" and she craves his attention so much that she will 'murder' for his attention.

About a man who dresses as a woman. He is to embarrassed to admit to everyone what he is on the i side so at night he moonlights as a woman and then is forced to kill the men after words when they fight him out.

The song is about a girl who goes about manipulating men to fall in love with her and even if they find out her lies she still convinces them that it's not her fault. She knows it's wrong but won't stop doing it cos afterall the men loose their thrill after a while so she goes on looking for her next victim to 'kill'(ie to break their hearts).

It's about a woman who was a victim to her Father so when she is with a man she goes back into that state when she was a little girl, like a PTSD flash back but now she can defend herself, she must defend herself. The man becomes her Father, it's a hallucination and she knows if she just lays there quietly that it'll pass and she can stop it but it's so real and she has to react, killing each and every man she meets.

Serial Killer is the sad tale of a woman who falls in love with every man she meets. She doesn't want to be in love, but she can't help it. Being psychotic, she feels her only option is to murder the man she loves, forcing herself out of love. That's my interpretation, a bit more literal than some.

this song is about a girl being so in love with someone who doesnt feel the same way, which makes her do crazy things and wanting to murder him
