I'm Your Victim

Recorded

June 22, 2011 - December 5, 2013

Genre

Punk Rock

"I'm Your Victim" is a song written by Austin Scholl and recorded under his alias ThornBrain. It was released on his second album, Nobody Cares Unless You're Pretty or Dying.

About

The song is about a dominatrix who has a tendency to accidentally kill her clients. However the narrator wants to be with her for exactly this reason. The song was originally written for Geizhals as a companion to "Shake", a similarly dark and sexual song that includes a pun on the word "tender"; the synth percussion intro to the song is taken from "Shake" and sped-up.

The song is musically inspired by "Babylon's Burning" by The Ruts, and the lines "I'm a sick boy with a capital D/And I wanna give a buck with a capital F" is inspired by a line from Elvis Costello's "Love Went Mad" ("I wish you luck with a capital F").

Lyrics

You have a funny condition
Of killing everything that you touch
Oh, the hurts so good that they all pay for
Soon it doesn't hurt all that much
And everyone is turning a blind eye to you
But baby I'm ready to talk
You ain't getting repeat business so
Why don't you replenish your stock

That feeling in your chest that
Says you're still alive
Anymore of it and I won't be
I'm your victim
Any other case I'd be dead on the floor
But you and I know it's 'cause I
Want you more
I'm your victim

I'm not looking for the usual kiss
I don't want to be the usual lover
I wanna feel the air leaving me baby
You and I both want a kind of tender
I'm a sick boy with a capital D
And I wanna give a buck with a capital F
The last thing I hear at all should be your vitriol
You're only halfway if you make me deaf
Your game is the kind that you fuck up from the inside-out

That feeling in your chest that
Says you're still alive
Anymore of it and I won't be
I'm your victim
Any other case I'd be dead on the floor
But you and I know it's 'cause I
Want you more
I'm your victim
