she's got a lousy poetry
that she speaks in the loudest tone
oh sweet misery
why couldn't you stay alone?

she's praying hard
to get the right numbers
burning cards for every failure

she's got a mouth full of irony
after giving life
she's got an urge to kill
but she's truly believing
that all of this is just
a misunderstanding
that someday someone would
give her back her life
and her dignity

this is what she will never get
there is sadness standing still
between what you dream to have
and what you really get
some days never come
some people just never change

his words smell fake alibis
he says every day goes by
just like a swallowed pill
but he told so many lies
that he can't even
feel pity for himself
but still hopes someday
his life will turn out
just like how it was meant to be
this is what he will never get
this is what you'll never get

    General CommentThis band is so underrated lol. People outside Quebec can't really understand the political meanings in the lyrics and people inside just don't know/give a fuck about the band and that's exactly the reason they stated for disbanding. Such a shame. This is what they'll never get...
