I know that evil's overrated, killing's my new thing
after all I gotta deal with erasing everything
finding you is the worst thing I've seen
like me in the best shape that I'd been
and I'll grieve for you in time, waiting out the crime
good enough for you

I know, well I know, evil is the only way to go
if I could act like, I'd only act like them
don't act like them
finding you is the worst thing I've seen
like me in the best shape that I've been
and I'll grieve for you in time, waiting out the crime
good enough for you

finding you is the worst thing I've seen
like me in the best shape that I'd been
glamorize the things i never try
sorry i'm...

    General CommentOringinally performed by Armchair Martian then conver on the AM vs. BA split EP Crestfallen, but yeah I think it's about someone coming to terms with things being fake and that everything isnt so great, and when you face reality its better then being naive....the debate over which is better harsh reality or ignorance and bliss. But the vibe I get fromthe song atmospherically is that the narrator may go tooo far with being fed up with "sugarcaoting everything" (good way to describe it detached)

    General CommentMy interpretation of the song:

    This seems to be about an insecure person that finally felt his life going the right direction then he finds the person he cares most about after they commit suicide. (finding you is the wost thing that i've seen, like me in the best shape i been)

    He is now crestfallen and contemplates what to do with himself - he considers joining them, but instead decides to bury his pain and deal with it later... a sort of selfish and cowardly way to handle things, but it was "good enough for you".

    He's sorry... because they were in so much pain, because he couldn't help, because he's so insecure, because he's a coward...
