about

I thought a serial killer anticipating and then basking in the glow of a kill was obvious. Right? Right, guys? Guys, where did you go? *crickets*

Additional inspiration: Dexter (TV show and books), "Every Breath You Take" by the Police, the infamous "Singin' in the Rain" scene from A Clockwork Orange, and the general concept of a wolf in sheep's clothing.

lyrics

I saw you on the bus
That I take because I don't own a car
(And because I kind of like watching people)
Has anyone ever had the nerve to tell you
Kind of beautiful

I know just what you're gonna say
I know sometimes I seem unstable
(You've got some good instincts)
Here's a proposition:
I've just gotta get you on my table
(But not quite like you think, because)

Whenever you're gone
I'll feel alive again
I'll feel alive again
Just like I've never been
Whenever you're gone
I'll feel alive again
Just like I always do
When things come to an end

Did I say that out loud?
That probably came out a little desperate
(I don't mean to smother)
You were so busy staring at me
That I think you just missed your exit
(But I'll find you another)

You seem strong and proud (and I like that)
But this doesn't have to be so strange
(And awkwardly quiet)
I think I make you wanna scream
And that's kinda flattering
(Go ahead and do it, pretty soon you'll be silent)

Once that we're done
I'll feel alive again
I'll feel alive again
I'll come around this bend
Once that we're done
I'll feel alive again
I'm gonna need your help
Can't do it by myself

So here we are.
The big reveal.
I've left clues lying about.
My love is brief.
But it's so real.
So have you figured me out?

Now that you're dead
I feel alive again
I feel alive again
Just like I've never been
Now that you're dead
I feel alive again
Just like I always do
When all pretty things end

Now that you're dead
I feel alive again
I feel alive again
Just like I've never been
Now that you're dead
I feel alive again
All the brand new sins
Make me a brand new man

...Until I need to feel alive again
