"This Piece Of Poetry Is Meant To Do Harm" as written by Ola Salo, Martin Karl Axen Persson, Mikael Bjoern-ingel Jepsson, Lars Henrik Ljungberg and Sylvester David Olof Schlegel....
You've been watching over me
Saying you're keeping me company
I should be grateful, I suppose
And compare you to a summer's rose

You've been talking sweet to me
About peace and loving harmony
But I know what you say about me
So now I tell you 'cause I gotta break free

That I can't give no false affection
I can do without your phony charm
This train ain't moving in your direction
This piece of poetry is meant to do harm

Please don't give me no warm reception
What you call peace to me is a call to arms
Some are singing to raise affection
But this piece of poetry is meant to do harm

So with what shall I compare thee?
Summer's clay or winter's sleet?
You made a non-believer out of me,
Now you ask for my sympathy?

No, take your words and take your vows
Take your fake-fueled Buddhist bows
Let the cool winds roughly shake
Out all darling buds of fake

I can't give you no false affection
I can do without your phony charm
This train ain't moving in your direction
This piece of poetry is meant to do harm

And don't you give me no warm reception
What you call peace to me is a call to arms
I'm not singing to raise affection
This piece of poetry is meant to do harm

    General Comment'Lurve' this song. It makes me think of a couple, one of them has gone behind the others back etc.
    But then it also makes me think about the goverment!
    "You made a non-believer out of me,
    Now you ask for my sympathy?"
    That just reminds, me of the war in Iraq, wich im tottaly against.You make a non-veliever out of me, Then Bush, or Blair asks for our votes.

    General CommentThis song is about someone who's all sugar in your face; telling you sweet little phrases & acting all holy while trying to secretly ensnare you into doing what they want you to do - aka being a hypocrite. But the person in this song realizes this, and explains that it's time to move on because he won't have this fakeness anymore.
