"Ruin" as written by Allison Margaret Pierce and Catherine Eleanor Pierce....
This is the end of us
You'll never hear my voice again
You are ridiculous
With your imaginary friends

All that I want
Is for you to come to ruin
All that I want
Is for you to come to ruin
All that I want
Is for you to come crawling back

This is the end of us
And everything you said we'd be
And all the love I bring
I will be taking home with me

I do not want
For you to be happy
I do not want
For you to be happy
All that I want
Is for you to come crawling back

I want you to come to me
I want you to come to me
I want you to come to me
I want you to, I want you to

This is the first day
Of many years of sorrow
You won't forget my name
But I'll forget your face tomorrow

All that I want
Is for you to come to ruin
All that I want
Is for you to come to ruin
All that I want
Is for you to come crawling back to me
Is for you to come crawling back to me
Is for you to come crawling back
Is for you to come crawling back to me

    General Commentthis is my all time favorite song by them. i think it's about someone who has broken up with someone else and she secretly wants him back but doesn't want to be the one to crawl back to him because he's hurt her so much. she wants him to want her enough to come back and apologize. and until he does that she wants him to suffer and be unhappy. i am going through the exact same thing and it kills me. i don't want to be the one to go for it beacuse i'm the one who ended it. but all in all it's a confusing situation but this song is an amazing explanation for it.

    General CommentI don't necessarily think she wants him back. It is enough satisfaction she won't take him back, even though he is crawling for her. Well I would think it satisfactory. Aren't we secretly all childish after break-ups :P.

    General CommentI love finding songs that are perfectly relatable! This song is amazing, and I've felt the same feelings expressed in it (on more than one occassion).

    General CommentThis song has been stuck in my head for two days now and I am trying to figure out why. Love the pierces, by the way, they are incredible. All of their songs are kind of dark, which is why I really relate to them. This is kind of the perfect revenge song. She (I believe Allison wrote this one) seems desperate and unhappy and she will do whatever it takes for her former lover to "come to ruin." I think it's beautiful and different than anything I have heard. And I'm glad I'm not her former lover. ;)

    This is the first day
    Of many years of sorrow
    You won't forget my name
    But I'll forget your face tomorrow
