Track Name: We Hate the Same Things
we hate the same things
and it builds a bond between us
we hate the same people
and we mock them 'til they see us
we find comfort in our hatred
as it binds us to each other
towards our common goal
we learned it from our mothers

we've got god on our side
they pray to god knows what
i can look into your loving eyes
while we stab them in the gut
they've got some pretty things
that we can take for our own needs
we'll throw the rest of it away
even if it bleeds

it's been this way forever
come put your mouth on mine
let's celebrate our hatred
like its 1999
let's consummate this marriage
and make babies that we love
so that we can teach them to hate
and mock and kick and shove
Track Name: Never Again
i picked a flower for your hair
as you asked me what life is about
i touched you in that special place
and filled your life with doubt
i hurt you with my tenderness
and let you hit the ground
you pushed me away with a violence
that didn't make a sound

na na na
na na na
na na na
never again

you found me while i slumbered
and woke me from a dream
but when i tried to speak to you
it came out as a scream
you left me wide awake
naked skin like leather
alone in the wilderness
that we destroyed together

na na na
na na na
na na na
never again

there was a shining moment
when it all made perfect sense
we built our house of lies
and forgot to build a fence
so i've pinned your likeness to a board
and put the glass down tight
it's pretty close to the real thing
with your wings extended in flight

na na na
na na na
na na na
never again
Track Name: Right Here
don't tell me that you're lonely
don't tell me that you're sad
don't tell me that you miss me
and I was the best you ever had
don't tell me that you're sorry
don't tell me you feel lost
don't tell me that you want me
i can't afford what it will cost

so don't go looking for me
in the places that we were
i'm in a better place now
in a stable place with her
don't tell me that you love me
don't tempt me with your skin
don't wrap your warmth around me
this ice is much too thin
don't fuck me with that magic
that lives inside your mind
don't make me taste your body
while you put me in a bind

don't hurt me with your fingers
as you hide me in your flower
don't take away my misery
as you take away my power
don't leave my body on the floor
as you twist me around your heart
don't let me dissolve inside of you
while my world gets torn apart
don't complete the things you left undone
don't make me disappear
just stay in your place in the sky
and let me stay right here

let me stay right here
