Lana Del Ray track listing
N/A "Queen of the Gas Station"

"Kill Kill" is a song written by Lana Del Rey and produced by David Kahne, serving as the opening track from her debut album, Lana Del Ray. It was originally titled "The Ocean"[1].

Background

"Kill Kill" was recorded sometime during 2008 in a studio located at 12 West, 37th Street, 4th Floor, New York City. The song was recorded during the same time that the rest of her album had been recorded.

Composition

The lyrics of "Kill Kill" were written by Grant while the production was handled by David Kahne. The song speaks about a relationship where Del Rey is "in love with a dying man". The original titled for the song was "The Ocean", but the producer of the song, Kahne, found that titled boring and told Grant to change it. Grant, while angry crossed out the title with x's and wrote "kill kill". That title soon became the name of the song and later her debut EP.

A music video featuring old clips of people surfing, old fashioned cars, and people on the beach in California were cut together by Grant along with several scenes of Grant covered in an American flag with a Marilyn Monroe-like hairstyle, another with flowers in her hair in front of floral pattern, and one with Grant wearing a simple strap dress with another Marilyn Monroe hairstyles. The clips of Grant feature her mouthing the words to the song in home videos. Grant removed the video but it was leaked somehow after she had established herself as Lana Del Rey along with plenty of other videos for songs off of her album.

Lyrics

Bound up the stairs, I'm in the shower.
Do you know I am going to leave you?
Do you know I am going to leave you?

I'm in love with a dying man,
I'm in love with a dying man,
All our love's flying in the sand.
I'm in love with a dying man,
I'm in love with a dying man,
I have done everything I can.

Tell me about Ray and his girl,
Do I know Ray is going to meet you?
Love you, I do, stay here, I won't,
As stars fade from your eyes.

I'm in love with a dying man,
I'm in love with a dying man,
I'm in love, lying in the sand.
I'm in love with a dying man,
I'm in love with a dying man,
I have done everything I can.

One, two, make it fun,
Don't trust anyone.
One, two, make it fun,
Don't trust anyone.

I'm in love with a dying man,
I'm in love with a dying man,
I have done everything I can.
I'm in love with a dying man,
I'm in love with a dying man,
I have done everything I can.

One, two, make it fun,
Don't trust anyone.
One, two, make it fun,
Make it fun, make it fun.
