I still remember when I saw your face across the room
Told me to take you but the price of love would seal my doom

I know the way you made the others break
But loving me would be your first mistake

Same old way, same old ways
Modern Day Delilah
Each time you learn to give
Queen to slave
Modern Day Delilah

Listen

You lived your glory in a liars haze you called the truth
The same old story of a social plan from wasted youth

You thought that you could bring me to my knees
But whos the one whos crying baby please

Same old way, same old ways
Modern Day Delilah
Each time you learn to give
Queen to slave
Modern Day Delilah

Just like the trigger of a loaded gun
You were the reason for the damage done
Too many lovers like a hunters prey
Not today

I know the way you made the others break
But loving me would be your last mistake
Each time you learn to give

Same old ways
Modern Day Delilah
Shame, shame, shame on you girl
Queen to slave, come on now
Modern Day Delilah
Yeah, yeah, each time you learn to give
Same old way, same old ways
Not today
Delilah
Queen to slave, loves decayed
Delilah

    Lately, I have been checking out some kiss concert footage on YouTube. Curiosity about who delilah was led me to an animated, YouTube video of the biblical story of samson and delilah. I was raised in the lutheran tradition, but only until I was about 13 years old. When I was 25, my mom left my dad and decided she wanted to live her life as a lesbian. I have since earned two bachelor of arts degrees and now believe in evolution. The song is obviously about gene's relationship with shannon, but I think this is only the tip of the iceberg. Knowing that it is completely normal for a man to have reservations about surrendering his independence to one woman, the struggle was probably magnified for a man in gene simmons' position. He created kiss and nurtured his business into a billion dollar company. Given his jewish heritage, the fact that he was raising children with a christian woman probably was a source of some stress. I am sure that creating music and writing lyrics provide gene with a creative outlet to deal with these inner conflicts. I just can't deny the synchronicity. The god of thunder struggling with male patterned baldness? The lyrics are smart, poignant and relevant to both modern relationships and world diplomacy.
