Last Caress Lyrics

I got something to say
I killed your baby today
And it doesn't matter much to me
As long as it's dead

Well I got something to say
I raped your mother today
And it doesn't matter much to me
As long as she spread

Sweet lovely death

    You all are stupid. Every single song by the misfits was a horror movie. Glen Danzig is a horror movie fanatic. Last Caress is nothing more than an old horror film. It has nothing to do with abortion. Even the misfits skull is a horror character aka "the crimson ghost"... You're welcome, now go back to your dipshit little vapid lives.

    I don't know how people keep getting interpretations about how it's "Anti Abortion!" or "A Psycopath on Death Row!".

    The song's true meaning from what I have concluded is about how Nothing Matters and in the end and we're all going to die. Specifically how the band portrays it's (or we) are ready for death.

    Abortion idiots. Its an anti-abortion song. The Killer/Rapist doesn't care. IT'S "YOUR MOTHER" He's talking about...The caress is OUR INDIFFERENCE to these horrible actions. FUCK YOU IF YOU CAN'T SEE THAT!

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I’ve always felt like it’s a song about necrophilia... murder, rape... Last Caress, sweet death. I felt like it was obvious, and I almost feel like the abortion thing is an attempt to politicize it. It might be a bit more Nihilistic instead...

    A serial killer/rapist on death row.

    Its about a doctor doing abortions and being the first and last one to hold a baby. He killed your baby/child, he performed an abortion on your mom who spread her legs. To him its a procedure and he is familiar with death. This song is about an abortion doctor thinking about the meaning of life and how death is an everyday thing to him.

    Auto-erotic asphyxiation. Killed a baby, jerked off. Raped your mother, thought about her while jacking. One last caress before death.

    First off, this song is covered by Metallica and not their song.

    The first couple of Verses state that he's killed your baby and raped your mother and doesn't really care what you have to say.

    The chorus comes across With: "Sweet lovely death, I am waiting for your breath. Come sweet death, one last caress."

    He's waiting for his life to end and wants to just go and be done with it.
