Take the honest side.
A gentleman would call it slanderous.
It takes a man to cry, but I just put a brick through every bird's nest.

Take me out to the parking lot.
I'm fine.
Flattery is dead, romance is next.
You never wanted to touch me when I was worthless.
Get it while I'm sick with this.
White knuckle grip on the world?
I'm losing it.
I tried to love you but I hate you all.
I'm losing it all.

Dreams are born to die.
Squeaky wheels are supposed to rust.
Hate and joy will vaporize.
The numbers have been crunched.
Yes, we're all fucked.

When half of this is real, I'll take lies.
My fault, you couldn't let me out on my own.
White knuckle grip on the world?
Well I'm losing it.
I tried to love you but I hate you all.

    General CommentRuiner is a really good hardcore/punk album, AWS is getting better and better. If you like these guys I highly recommend their Nitro Records labelmates Crime In Stereo and No Trigger. Especially NT, they're a new band and their album Canyoneer is fucking amazing. CIS' The Troubled Stateside is too, it's a must-have if you like hardcore/punk.

    General Commentpretty good song, the title is derived from Paint it Black's "Less Deicide, More Minor Threat" which I like a little better but still AWS knows what they're doing.

    General CommentYEah I might be wrong but I think the title also refers to the band. Bright eyes a kind of big deal band in the indie scene with all kinds of yuppie fans.

    General Comment"You never wanted to touch me when I was worthless."

    Probably about someone he was into, but only reciprocated those feelings when his band blew up.
