Missile (song)

Missile (song)

"Missile" is a song by IAMX from the album Kiss + Swallow. It was released as a single in 2005.

There have been two music videos released for "Missile." One consists almost entirely of an upside down, overhead shot of Corner in a bathtub, with his head underwater and a strip of tape over his mouth. Over the course of the video, the message written on the tape changes from 'LOVE ME' to 'HATE ME' to 'HELP ME' as a hand appears in shot and forces his head to stay under. The second features Corner's girlfriend at the time, Sue Denim of the band Robots in Disguise and, in keeping with IAMX's music, is highly erotic, featuring S&M and bondage, with Denim as a dominatrix of sorts, with Corner at her mercy. The video ends with her giving him a glowing capsule and forcing him to swallow it, at the same time as the lyric "You're taking my life away" is sung.

Lyrics

So you came like a missile,

Falling on my head with the black sky,

Think you're giving but you're taking my life away

Then you came with your breeze blocks,

Smashing up my face like a bus stop,

Think you're giving but you're taking my life away

Like the drunk you convinced was sober,

You keep me falling over,

Think you're giving but you're taking my life away

With the best of intentions,

You tried to give an ocean directions,

Think you're giving but you're taking my life away

So you came like a missile,

Leaving me the whole world in exile,

Think you're giving but you're taking my life away

Like the drunk you convinced was sober,

You keep me falling over,

Think you're giving but you're taking my life away
