Ice Nine Kills – The Greatest Story Ever Told lyrics

How could this happen?
Am I dreaming again?
Her body's not moving I'm assuming she's dead
This isn't a fucking game
There's somebody's life at stake
She's covered in bruises
But the truth is that I never committed the crime
Cause I would never hurt a fly
Then how'd she lose her life?
You're in denial
Time to burn and dig
The whites of my eyes (I wanna tell you)
Then what went on that night

"Listen closely as I tell you I'm not who I seem.
I'm gonna touch you cause I like it when you scream
I want to watch you when you're sleeping and thinking of me"
And that's what he told her when he killed her
That son of a bitch took away my girl
He's gonna pay for it right now.

Cause you might think you're in love,
And he might promise you the world
Don't believe what he says,
He's not real, he's a murderer.

Prepare for the day I find you
(This is your last chance)
'Cause I'll be out in six months with his address and a shotgun
And a promise for justice that night, (all right)
I'll be standing at the crime
So they can throw me back in prison for my life
If it would bring you back to me
Last night I dreamed we had a future and you were alive
It was springtime on our wedding day
There were birds in the sky
The sun was glowing it was beautiful and everyone was there
I still can't believe that your gone I'm so lost
I'm sorry (I'm sorry) don't go
Oh please god no!

Cause you might think you're in love
And he might promise you the world
Don't believe what he says
He's not real, he's just a murderer

C'mon c'mon
I think that I've had enough
And he says, "You're too late
I've got a hole to dig
And you think that I've over-reacted
She was, so cute
I couldn't resist cause I'm a sucker for promiscuous action."
So tell me, just tell me
Tell me the truth

Cause you might think you're in love
And he might promise you the world
Don't believe what he says
He's not real he's a murderer
Cause I've been lying awake
From this nightmare I feel betrayed
I gave my life
But you took it away

Am I dead?
Or am I still breathing?
Cause you've stolen the love of my life
So you'll be sleeping with the fishes tonight, sleeping with the fishes tonight.

Now listen:
"I'm not religious but I've learned to pray (for her)
I'm not a violent man but people can change
So when you're sleeping
I'll slit your throat and drain your blood
And mail it to your mother
So she'll discover what a mess you become"

I think she might like that...
Cause I fucking do!

Cause you might think your in love
And he might promise you the world
Don't believe what he says,
He's not real
He's a murderer
And you'll be lying awake
From this nightmare, feel betrayed
I gave my life
And you took it away

There's not a day that goes by
But you took it away

    This song is about a man with split personalities. In his "evil" form, he got angry at his girlfriend/fiancée and killed her, then afterwards has no idea of what happened and goes seeking out the killer. All the while as he searches, there is a small voice in his head telling him that he is the murderer, but he actively ignores and denies it. It gets to the point where he realises that it's him, but is still in denial, so he drowns himself to drown the killer not realising that he's drowning himself.

    This song is practically explaining how someone had killed the love of his life and this is him trying to get justice for her. He explains how she fell for some guy and he killed her one night. He explains that she thought she was in love because he promised her the world. He will be out of jail in 6 months, with a shot gun looking for justice for that night. He is hoping to kill him in the same place he had killed the love of his life and get thrown into jail for his life. He wasn't religious but he learned to pray for her, he wasn't violent but became violent just for her. He is willing to do anything for the justice of his long lost love.
