We, we used to be friends
We used to give a shit about each other
That was then
This is today

You, you took my love
You took all of my trust
You took my drugs
It wasn't enough

Back in the day we thought we suffered
We didn't know each other well enough to guess how this would end
Both confused and both unknowing where we're both going
Now you're back
I thought you were dead
Dead, dead, dead

Friends, who fuckin' needs 'em?
They only let you down
They take your time
They bleed you dry

Back in the day we thought we suffered
We didn't know each other well enough to guess how this would end
Both confused and both unknowing where we're both going
Now you're back
I thought you were dead
Dead, dead, dead

You, you sold me out
You sold me out
You sold me out

Back in the day we thought we suffered
We didn't know each other well enough to guess how this would end
Both confused and both unknowing where we're both going
Now you're back
I thought you were dead
Dead, dead, dead

Dead, dead, dead, dead

    General CommentOf course it's about betrayal. Apparantly based on a friend who lost interested in the band after they got dropped from A&M/Mercury and dropped out of the limelight and could no longer get them 'gigs, drugs or backstage passes'. According to Andy Cairns, 'As for the person that song’s about, if you ever read this, you know who you are. If you ever see me, cross the road.'

    He's a God, but he can be very scary at times...
