he was a sly one
he always wanted to explore us
he liked the ladies
he liked the gentlemen as well
he pushed my patience to the limits and he
he took my confidence as well
yes he did
he tried so hard to make us love him
and we loved him

he ate at whole world
he made us think he was a shy one
he tied us down then
he knew we never thought he'd lie
he pushed my patience to the limits and he
he took my confidence as well
yes he did
he tried so hard to make us love him
and we loved him

there are apologies
well-hidden in the lies but they exist
don't try to say he didn't mean to hurt us
we both know he did
but there's a point at which you
realize that nobody is
all bad
all bad
all bad

we know he used us
not just our money but emotions
we might recover
if only he could but he can't
he pushed my patience to the limits and he
he took my confidence as well
yes he did
he tried so hard to make us love him
and we loved him

there are apologies
well-hidden in the lies but they exist
don't try to say he didn't mean to hurt us
we both know he did
but there's a point at which you
realize that nobody is
all bad
all bad
all bad

    General Commenti've been thinking a lot about stuff that may seem unimportant...it only seems like that caz its true...but kneewhoo, i was thinking...if cordelia wished that buffy had never come to sunnydale...wouldnt she be dead by now?

    oh rite...this song....i like it
    it means that men who are bisexual are evil pig monsters from some distant planet and they need boobs, but since ladies seem to like their boobs, they lie. like the singer says, no one is all bad. the pig monsters only want to save their planet from being boobless. its not their fault they suck at being good at convincing ladies to give up their boobs.

    think about it

    General CommentThis reminds me of someone once close to me. Actually, this reminds me of a lot of people, sadly.

    My InterpretationCorrection: Would have thought it was "He ate our whole world".

    The lyric itself I would imagine relating to a manager or someone similarly associated with the band betraying them (hence "he tied us down/and he knew we'd never thought he'd lie" and later "he used us/not just our money but emotions")- it's written in first person plural so I can't imagine it relates to a relationship (unless it's a polyamorous one I suppose). But that despite the many bad things that happened, it doesn't mean that he's 100% bad.
