"Hater" as written by and Art Alexakis....
Yeah live and let live motherfuckers,
I'm a do me you do you. You're all a bunch of haters.

Oh
Oh

I don't like the way that you talk to me
When you tell me how it's gonna be
And I don't like the way that you smile at me
When you tell me what is wrong with me
Sometimes I wish you would go away
Go away and never ever come back
I don't like the mean and vindictive things you do
It makes me want to hate on you

Yeah it's got me sad
I'm kinda stressed
You got me feeling anxious
I'm always depressed
And I don't want to play this game of tug of war
I don't wanna be with a hater like you anymore

Oh

I don't wanna be with a hater like you anymore, anymore
No
No I don't wanna be with a hater
You are such a hater

I don't like the way that you never take the blame
For absolutely anything
And I don't like the way that you put me through hell
For all those things you do yourself
Sometimes I wish I could disappear
Fade away into a happy new life
I don't like the way that you're always telling lies
You talk about me all the time

I hear you talk
You are such a bore
I see the way you look
I think you look like a witch
I know you know
I know the way you were before

I don't wanna be with a hater like you anymore
Whoa, oh
I don't wanna be with a hater like you anymore,
Anymore
No no
I don't wanna be with a hater like you
Hater, hater
I don't wanna be with a hater like you
Hater, hater
I don't wanna be with a hater like you anymore
Anymore
Oh
Anymore, anymore,
No no
I don't wanna play this game,
No I don't wanna play games, games, uh

You're a hypocrite
Yeah you lie to me
You use what you don't understand
You embarrass me
Yeah you're beautiful
In an ugly way
Hey the sex
Was never that good anyway

It's got me down
And I'm super stressed
Been taking medication
I'm always depressed
I don't want to fight you in this tug of war
I don't wanna be with a hater like you anymore
Whoa whoa
I don't wanna be with a hater like you anymore, anymore
Whoa whoa
I don't wanna be with a hater like you
Hater hater hater
I don't wanna be with a hater like you
Hater hater hater hater
I don't wanna be with a hater like you
Hater hater
Hater
Hater

    General CommentI wouldn't want to be with a hater like that ever. What a bitch. It's a good song.. I think the meaning is pretty straight forward.

    General CommentA radio station I listen to described it as "a letter Art wrote to his ex-wife." Hm, that seems about right...

    General Commenthahah i love everclear. "yea you're beautiful, in a n ugly way, hey the sex was never that good anyway!". This song is pretty straight forward...basically its about a guy he was dating a manipulative bitch that got him all screwed up and depressed and stuff, but now he's finally decided to peace out and tell her straight up to get out of his life. Kind of harsh, but totally awesome
