There's a waiting list to the bottom, under you.
Ex-husbands, romantics and perverts and masochists.
I'm gonna be there too.
Where's the stop where the train's gonna hit me?
True, I live for when you bullshit me.
Tell me you want me, tell me you need me.
Undress me with your eyes.
Lie to me.

Here we are, in love again.
Congratulations,
I'm here as the entertaining fool.

Must have broke every bone in your wrist, how romantic of you.
We both got this sickness; goddamn it's addictive.
It's got me bleeding for two.
Where's the truck full of bricks here to crush me?
Don't you fuck with this halo above me.
Tell me you caught me, tell me I'm sorry.
Kick me back in your life.
Torture me.

    General Commentthis guy really likes his girlfriend ;) he knows that she's not good for him, but he can't help loving her. She seems pleased with the situation, because he congratulates her with catching him again. sad really, but good song :D

    General Commenthe's in love with someone, and knows it's headed for disaster. it's a bitter song, since he doesn't want to be in love with her, but he can't help the way he feels. he knows it's a bad scene. he knows it's unhealthy, but can't help it. therefore is very bitter about the situation.

    that's what i think anyway :)
    sweet song

    General CommentI agree with happy.arm - he's addicted, yet he feels like he's in a rut because of her. "Congratulations" is obviously sarcastic, like "look at where we are, good fucking job."

    There should be more comments on this song. One of my favourites from Ruiner.

    General CommentExcuse the double comment but I forget to mention something.

    She's a player/whore.

    "There's a waiting list... I'm gonna be there too."

    So she's done this before to all different sorts of people, she's known for being a heartbreaker, and he's going to be the next one on her list.

    General CommentI think this is about an "on again, off again" relationship that is beating him up emotionally.
