Peeping Tom Celebrity Death Match Lyrics
Waking up without you
it's all in my head
I roll over to touch you, and see a horses head
How did I arouse you with kianos face
How well did I endow you at a rediculous pace
How do you entice me beyond six face?
And when you slice and dice me
It's like will and grace

If I keep doing it my way
And you keep doing it your way
If I keep doing it my way
And you keep doing it your way
If I keep singing it my way
And you keep screaming it your way
We end up taking the highway
So let's try doing it my way and we'll be fine

Go to sleep without me
It's all in your head
Four glasses of niquill
Well burn up your bed

you keep on doing it your way
you keep on doing it your way
I keep on doing it my way
I keep on doing it my way
You keep on doing it your way
You keep on doing it your way
I keep on doing it my way
I keep on drinking the hard way

How do you despise me in a micropotent way
I guess I won't despise you like???
And how I defied you like ????
And how you victimzed me like R Kelly's face

I keep on doing it my way
I keep on doing it my way
You keep on doing it your way
You keep on doing it your way
If I keep singing it my way
And you keep screaming it your way
We end up taking the highway
So let's try doing it my way and we'll be fine





Watch the credits rolling
Can we be friends or is this the end?

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Celebrity Death Match" by Peeping Tom speak of a troubled and confusing relationship. The song's protagonist wakes up alone and hallucinates a horse's head instead of their partner. They wonder how they managed to please their partner with such a strange and possibly disturbing image in their head. The song also addresses the issue of different approaches to life and love, with the singer and their partner seemingly incompatible in their ways of doing things. The lyrics urge the partners to find a way to compromise and meet on common ground, or risk the relationship coming to an end.


The dark and surreal lyrics of "Celebrity Death Match" reflect the experimental nature of Peeping Tom, a collaborative project led by Mike Patton, frontman of the band Faith No More. The band's self-titled debut album, released in 2006, features a diverse array of guest artists, including Norah Jones, Dan the Automator, and Massive Attack's Elizabeth Fraser. The album received mixed reviews, with many critics finding it too eclectic and unfocused. However, "Celebrity Death Match" stands out as a highlight of the album, with its catchy chorus and playful lyrics contrasting with the disturbing imagery of the verses.


Line by Line Meaning

Waking up without you it's all in my head I roll over to touch you, and see a horses head
The artist is lonely and possibly even haunted. He used the image of a horse's head, famous in the movie The Godfather, to depict his hallucination and his longing for his lover.


How did I arouse you with kianos face How well did I endow you at a rediculous pace How do you entice me beyond six face? And when you slice and dice me It's like will and grace
The artist is reminiscing about the good times he and his lover shared but also reflecting on the nature of their sexual relationship. He feels as though their attraction is purely physical and often reckless, much like Will and Grace's relationship on the TV show.


If I keep doing it my way And you keep doing it your way If I keep doing it my way And you keep doing it your way If I keep singing it my way And you keep screaming it your way We end up taking the highway So let's try doing it my way and we'll be fine
The artist is acknowledging that there are differences in how he and his lover approach things but suggests that they need to find common ground if they want to move forward. He proposes that they try things his way and meet in the middle.


Go to sleep without me It's all in your head Four glasses of niquill Well burn up your bed
The artist is imagining his lover alone in bed, having trouble sleeping, and self-medicating with NyQuil. He is concerned for their well-being and worried about their potential reckless behavior.


you keep on doing it your way you keep on doing it your way I keep on doing it my way I keep on doing it my way You keep on doing it your way You keep on doing it your way I keep on doing it my way I keep on drinking the hard way
The artist is reiterating the previous theme of both parties needing to find common ground. He sees that they are still operating differently and even sees himself leaning towards potentially harmful behavior (drinking).


How do you despise me in a micropotent way I guess I won't despise you like??? And how I defied you like ???? And how you victimzed me like R Kelly's face
The artist questions why his lover seems to dislike him so much even though they still spend time together. He also reflects on how his own actions may have contributed to their current dynamic and compares feeling like a victim to R Kelly's accusers.


Watch the credits rolling Can we be friends or is this the end?
The artist recognizes that their relationship may be coming to an end, but still holds out hope for a friendship even if they cannot keep up the romantic relationship.
