"The Failure" as written by Peter Wilhard Ingvar Dolving, Anders Martin Bjoerler, Jonas Fredrik Bjoerler, Per Moeller Jensen and Patrik Jensen....
Give it away, watch it turn
There's nothin' I can do for you
These are my very last, don't we all know it?
As chemistry turns into crime
I'm helplessly watching it die

You were never supposed to be
Someone who'd get this close
This is not my victory

Get your sickness away from me
Accusation in velveteen
Tear it up, tear it open and lay it beside me

Show me a way, something frail
Gimme one reason to break these chains
I played your very last, all your desires
But somethin' inside of me broke
I used to be more than this

You were never supposed to be
Someone who'd come this close
This is not my victory

Get your sickness away from me
Accusation in velveteen
Tear it up, tear it open and lay it beside me

Together we fall
Together we fail

Drain me from all life inside
I will hurt you ever so carefully
We will breathe in unison through an iron lung

For the lost things we become
I'll be your crown of thorns
And you'll be my cross to bear, ohh

You hate me so good

    General CommentTaken from an interview with Peter Dolving:

    "The song The Failure is very much about dysfunctional relationships, hiding behind; build on each other’s needs sometimes. It can be like that in some relationships. I wrote the song from my experiences and how living together can be almost like clinging on to each other rather than living next to each other. Yes, people can be very, very self-destructive, and somehow maintain their relationships out of some kind of desperate need. Not necessarily for the person, but for what the person offers."
