I think this one may be the flip side of “Beauty and Destruction”. I am definitely attracted to people who live on the edge, somewhat recklessly and carelessly. I think a lot of us are. It seems like life may be more “intense” where they are. This song is about a woman who lives that way and to whom I would be more than willing to surrender… As the chorus says, it is about dancing on the edge of life, and flirting with our final fall. What a glamorous thing to do. The music here is meant to be somewhat “lighter”. The verse has an easy groove, with a dance-type drum track. Not sure what artist truly influenced me on this, but it definitely more Depeche Mode than Reznor singing Head like a Hole.
