Track Name: I Would Like To Kill You! (live)
How I would like to shoot you in your head
And watch you bleed until you're almost dead
How I would like to tear you apart
And afterwards to throw you from a bridge in a bag

Chorus:
Ooh, how I would like to kill you
Just for one time I can't control my thoughts
Ooh, how I would like to kill you
And when I'm satisfied I might kill one more

How I would like to kill you without a sound
And bury you where you would not be found
How I would like to share my fun with you
But I am selfish and sharing is not cool

Chorus

How I would like to shoot you in your head
And watch you bleed until you're almost dead
How I would like to share my fun with you
But I am selfish and sharing is not cool

Chorus


'This is the first Ramirez song ever written and ever recorded. The original title of it was I’m A Serial Killer, but the next day I decided to use some words of the chorus as the title for the song and add an exclamation mark to it. I Would Like To Kill You! is about the general feeling of wanting to take somebody’s life for no particular reason, which of course shouldn’t be an option to anyone of us. The lyrics are based upon some primitive Chris Isaak alike riff. The adding of the word ‘live’ to the title of the song suggests that the recordings were made during a Ramirez show, but this isn’t the case. The occasional applauding and firing of guns in the audience during the song was taken from a Technics sx-KN3000-keyboard. Initially Ramirez was planned to record only this one song, which explains why the lyrics aren’t about one killer but about several ways of murdering. At the time Danny decided to make it a live song and gave the name Danny Ramirez and Friends to the project to account for the bunch of musicians you hear. Whoever they were, they’re doing a great job. For instance listen to the fantastic leadguitar halfway of the song, right before the breakdown. Nonetheless, I Would! was only played live three times at real Ramirez gigs: at the first gig on April 2, 1999, at the third gig on December 31, 1999, and at Danny’s comeback show -- his fourth gig -- on February 22, 2002.'
Track Name: I Hope You Die In A Freak Accident!
Chorus:
I hope you die in a freak accident
I hope you die in a freak accident
Your life ain't worth shit
I've had enough of it
I hope you die in a freak accident

Your wheels have been running for much too long
Down the roads of life
But when you drive the country roads
It ain't hard to survive
Well, there will come a day or night
Your death car will arrive
And the highway you're on then
You won't leave alive

Chorus

You drive like crazy, you're lost in stress
You're running out of time
You're always late, yeah way too late
To see the traffic light
Why would you stop if it's good for your car
But better for your life
Just drive on through, underneath a truck
You will be just fine

Chorus


'This one is somewhat different from the other lyrics, because it’s about getting irritated by motorists driving through a red light while driving in your car or on your bike or moped on a crossing lane through the green one. All rules are made to be broken, except for the rules in traffic. After I Hope You Die! had become the biggest hit on the first Ramirez tape, I decided to record it again for the 2002 Reload Your Gun! cd because the song is one of the favourite sing alongs at Ramirez gigs, and has been the final song on the regular set list since Danny first started performing live on April 2, 1999.'
Track Name: Baby, Soon I'll Take Your Life!
You never caused me any sorrow
You never caused me any pain
But right now that all doesn't matter
'Cause I am, well I'm not quite sane

Chorus:
Baby, soon I'll take your life
With a gun or with a knife
But please don't think it's for a reason, or two
I just have got no better things to do

You never caused me any sorrow
You never caused me any pain
But right now that all doesn't matter
'Cause I am what others call insane

Chorus


'One of my favourite tunes and the second one I came up with. The song is written in the night of 2 to 3 June 1998. It’s very Elvis alike and as for the lyrics I’d get a bit inspiration from Prince or what’s that symbol-guy’s name nowadays. The song’s actually a love song sung by a not quite sane killer, implying the lyrics are about the vague line between love and hate rather than a troubled relationship being the reason for the murder.Towards the end a fast picking acoustic lead guitar supports the chorus. On the 2002 Reload Your Gun! cd the drums are missing, but I recorded a tambourine instead. Except for one or two gigs in 2008 Baby, Soon! has been played at every Ramirez show.'
Track Name: For I Am Inspired By The Devil!
And finally you found a place to rent
You think it's an apartment you paid for in advance
But there's one thing you still do not know
It's right into my basement you will go

Chorus:
For I am inspired by the devil
He tells me what to do every night
Some may call it demonical (demonic) possession
But to me this possession is alright

At daytime you can't see (tell) at my eyes
That at midnight I will be satanized
And when outside it is getting dark
In the basement bloodshed will be your part

Chorus


'The inspiration for this title came from the Finnish nuclear metal band Impaled Nazarene. They used this supposed movie sample on their 1996 Latex Cult-cd. Of the non first album songs of the Load Your Gun!-tape, this one appeared on most acoustic set lists since it was done at Danny's first concert (April 2, 1999), and still is often played live nowadays. It was absent though at gigs done with an instrumental backing (April 2009-March 2012, as well as both instrumental backing shows done in 2014 and 2016). The lyrics are about someone renting an apartment somewhere in some city, but instead ending up in the cellar of the evil landlord. Every town has its Satanic killer! Believe me...'
