Songfacts®:

  • This song is about sex. His point is he will always be the one in control, that is, there will be no switch of power. A track from the band's first album, it's one of the more vengeful songs in the Cold catalog.

  • Zero from The Abyss, NjThe lyrics are most likely, from what I gather, about a woman who manipulates the narrator with sex to get what she wants and likely treats him like crap, and he can't stand the fact that he's too much of a doormat to do anything about it. Eventually, he does stand up for himself, "Guess who came to kill the love here", that's when the switch happens. At least that's my interpretation of it.
