"Dear Ms. Leading" as written by and Casey Blue Crescenzo....
Dear Ms. Leading I hate to tell you that I no longer need your services
A bitter fabricating manufacturer of lust
You have been presented as
It doesn’t do a thing for me, I now know your identity
A black widow who temps the gray with promises of love
If ignorance is bliss ,wish I was blissfully ignorant
But I'm not, I'm enlightened now light has been presented to me
In spite of you

Come now Ms. Leading I regret to inform you
I’ve fallen out of lust
It must be so hard to understand
(Hell no I don’t think so, hell no I don’t think so)

Did you really think me a fool enough to play along?
And make believing everything you said was true
Push your pouting lips on other unsuspecting lovers
(Hell no I don’t think so, hell no I don’t think so)

Dear Ms. Leading in response to your response
I'm simply unavailable
I hope you got the message in the message that I sent
Shame on me for falling for someone so dense
In different times I’d might of played along for something warm, something with security
As fleeting as momentary rapture and the pleasure of collapsing in arms
So welcoming to others just like me

Come now Ms. Leading I regret to inform you
I’ve fallen out of lust
It must be so hard to understand
(Hell no I don’t think so, hell no I don’t think so)

Did you really think me a fool enough to play along?
And make believing everything you said was true
Push your pouting lips on other unsuspecting lovers
(Hell no I don’t think so, hell no I don’t think so)

    General CommentThe first time this line appears, it actually goes "Push your battering lips on *other* unsuspecting men."

    The second time, I think it says "Push your battering lips on *other* unsuspecting *lovers*."

    Amazing song though.

    General Comment'Dear Ms. Leading I hate to tell you that I no longer need your services' -HE'S ENDING IT
    'A bitter fabricating manufacturer of lust
    You have been presented as' -HE REALIZES IT WAS HER JOB TO GIVE HIM THOSE FEELINGS
    'It doesn’t do a thing for me, I now know your identity
    A black widow who temps the gray with promises of love' -AGAIN, HE SEES WHAT SHE REALLY IS NOW.
    'IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS, WISH I WAS BLISSFULLY IGNORANT' -Great line!!

    ANOTHER LINE:
    The line that says 'Shame on me for falling for someone SO DENSE' I think he really says 'Shame on me for falling for someone FORBIDEN' -HE REALIZES HIS FEELINGS SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN.

    General CommentThe childs writting a letter right now.
    "you have been presented as..." this is just a clever way to say that he found her out. and realizes what she is.

    and its really "push your battered lips on other unsuspecting lovers"

    General CommentThe dear Hunter finally sets his mind on the fact that he was only being used by Ms. Leading. It can be assumed that an event has happened to cause him to come to this conclusion, or her "spell" has finally worn off on him where he can see the truth. He is completely separating himself form Ms. Leading. He says he has fallen out of "lust" not "love". The Dear Hunter is fully aware of Ms. leading's infidelity
