He Lives Alone

He Lives Alone

Artist: Koo Koo Boy Title: Meanings: 1
"Eddie" refers to serial killer Ed Gein. The song is written from the perspective of two neighborhood boys who used to come over to his house and play cards with him. "Eddie" would regale them with adventure stories from the South Seas and show them his collection of Polynesian shrunken heads (which were in fact, the faces of his local victims--many dug up from their graves). The lyrics suggest not only a confession on Eddie's part, and that in fact, his "secret's safe" with them, but that they harbor some kind of fetishy admiration of him as a result ("dream of his blood red hands")
