Ville talks about Heartkiller. The syncing is off and the audio's cut off but the full transcription of the video is below, typed up by me. Sorry for the inconvenience,.
Heartkiller was originally called The Biblical Sense, it was one of the songs we wrote one of the last ones from the album but it came together from little bits and bobs weve being playing around for months and months, which never found their own place and under the banner of Heartkiller they found a home. And it could actually be the first single, so I dont know.
Yea, its just a direct song about, you know, letting your inner hermit go for a little bit and opening up the door for new possibilities and not being afraid of new things and thing that may hurt you. It just walk into the scorching sun and just remembering to wear your shades. Reanimation is always a good symbolic value when it comes to being waken up from the dead by romance.
Chorus: Sparks will fly beneath the luna alight/ Lazarus and frankensteins/ Babe, Ill be a flatliner for a heartkiller/ Together we die above the lesser light, the lesser light being the moon, so its me saying were above the moon. Its me trying to make Elvis Presleys, Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear, as complicated as possible, as always. It worked out that Im always smiling when Im singing that song, so in that sense, it worked out perfectly. And its also, lyrically, its kinda its always interesting to myself that I do have the tendency of not having the courage to not being really direct. I was laughing at myself, finding myself in the same spot trying to say very simple things but again making them as complex as possible. The song is full of hope, and so is a lot of the album, and I guess thats the difference with the last one we did, which was more doomy in its approach I thought that all hope was lost but then again I accosted in the surprise that there may be a chance for a need to be more than half the man I used to be.
