"Smile" as written by and Justine Elinor/matthews Frischmann....
Overwhelmed with a deep repulsion for sights seen so commonly,
now I have come to be the walking enmity.
Assimilate into a culture of post morality, from what I've seen, I hate humanity.
Rot with repulsion. I'll write the world a brand new song.
Look upon your bleak creation,
but is it truly me that's to be the human blasphemy?
I'll set the world on fire and,
in burning light I'll write my first love song and I will feel warmth.
Hide your eyes in heaven, in the lies.
Believe. Relieve. I'll end the world tonight.
Overwhelmed with a deep repulsion for sights seen so commonly,
now I have come
to be a walking enmity, for humanity,
the human blasphemy,
I'll end the world tonight.

    General CommentThis is a good song to listen to when you realize how stupid everyone is. I love the concept of setting the world on fire and only then can you write your first love song. Very good stuff.

    General Commentyes, i agree, most of the songs on the art of drowning are by davey, but there are quite a few songs that jade wrote too, i jus hate how davey is the ONLY one in the band that gets any of the credit. Davey wouldnt be where he is now if it weren't for jade, hunter, and adam. im not bashing on the others, im jus sayin they seem like a davey groupy.
