I have had a love-hate relationship with this song. It is extremely catchy, but it feels morally wrong at the surface. The more I think about it, the more I believe this is about a woman who loves the wrong type of man. She wants to love a good man and be a good person, but she has fallen in love with an evil person. This is not the love that can build a house - it is the love that sinks a dead body. It is a song about self-destruction. I also think that Lady Gaga may have written this to be controversial.
