"My Fork In The Road (Your Knife In My Back)" as written by Daniel Jacobs, Travis Miguel, Ektor Varkatzas, Brandon Saller and Marc Mcknight....
So here, we are again
The same fork in the road
I hate you. You love me.
This story's getting old

The day I opened up
You shut me out for good
Forgive, Forget, Fuck you
You are a liar and a whore

So take what you want and leave
You'll never get another part of me

I remember the day that
I thought I would be free
I poured out my soul to you,
Exposed everything,

Next thing I know
My hearts broke
My hand it's much the same
I did my best to drink you away

[Chorus]
So take what you want and leave
You'll never get another part of
You are poison on man's lips
Lured in by the curves of your hips
Come here boy, stand by me
Look my way, have another drink

I should have got up
I should have got up and left you

And I will never ever be you're lover again
As far as I'm concerned, we are not even friends
This is may not seem to subtle to you
The point I'm trying to make is we are completely through

[Chorus]

    General CommentI really love the song musically, but the lyrics are so fucking overdone and cliched.

    "I hate you. You love me."

    "You are a liar and a whore"


    "And I will never ever be you're lover again
    As far as I’m concerned, we are not even friends"

    Overly simplistic and childish if you ask me. Perhaps they will just succumb to sobbing into the mic next time?

    I guess this is what happens when you listen to Cradle of Filth. I feel Alex could benefit from a degree in English Lit like Dani has.

    I can write better than this.

    General Commenti think the breakdown when alex is screaming while you hear brandon vocalizing is the best part of the whole song. not to mention the lyrics which i think are great.

    General CommentI think this song isn't cliché at all.

    With "emo" music bleeding into (what seems) every genre of music, it's nice to have a song that's just a loud, striped down "FUCK YOU" instead of putting all kinds of emotions into complicated (annoying) metaphors.

    General CommentBest song on thenew album along with Creature. The riff is amazing, as is the solo. Brilliant lyrics too. One little correction:

    "Suddle" = "Subtle

    Otherwise these are pretty damn good

    General CommentWhat a tite song! A definate fuck you to a bitch who can't make up her mind, puts you through hell, and then wants "in" again. I love the part where he tells the boy to look his way and have another drink... He's probably saying that to another dude she fucked over or tellin that dude to leave her (like he should've) and have a drink with him (to save the pain and drink her away now when its not so hard to let go).
