Last Caress Lyrics
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

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.

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.

"To the guy that wrote "You all are stupid. Every single song by the misfits was a horror movie...."
I reply, it is about abortion you stupid fucking piece of shit cunt. Go fucking kill your mother who made such a dipshit fuck like you. You go to your fucking miserable pathetic life, stupid dump fuck and let the big boys interpret a song. It is about abortion you stupid cocksucker, something that your stupid mother should have done with you long ago. Don't your fucking thick head mongoloid skull get it?"
Dude, kill yourself.

i think the song is about heroin. He don't care if he kills your baby or rapes your mom, as long as he gets his fix. and he is waiting for the day it kills him. Sweet death and one last caress. Thats what I take from it.

To me, the song switches perspectives a few times. First, the rapist. He doesn’t care about anything or anyone. Second, the mother/ rape victim who obviously doesn’t want to carry her rapists baby.. but the lyrics are shocking because they intentionally leave out the nuance of the aforementioned scenario. The kicker is that the rapist said “YOUR mother” so he’s talking to you.. the dead unwanted fetus of a rape victim and a rapist.. so that makes him your father.. basically.
The “sweet lovely death” chorus could be the rapists desire to experience orgasm again that led to the situation unfolding. Kbye

I've always interpreted the song as being about the shit that some solders did during the Vietnam war you know like killing kids and raping village girls.

Always thought it was about two lovers having sex and he killed her baby today because he was either wearing a condom or pulled out. The part about sweet lovely death, I am waitin’ for your breath-come, sweet death, one last caress” He’s talking about an orgasm also known as La petite mort: is a french expression [la pətit mɔʁ], the little death is an expression which means "the brief loss or weakening of consciousness" and in modern usage refers specifically to "the sensation of post orgasm as likened to death." One last caress; as sex finishes
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.

Metallica cover this song.
MISFITS WRITE IT!
It's horror punk, it doesn't have much meaning.
Hmm. Lets start.
He is psycho ho wanna kill somebody, but! He wanna kill first family of that man, so, that person will suffer, then, when kill his whole family he will kill him.
Sorry for my eng.

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.
