"We're Going to Hell" as written by Tim Kasher, Matthew Ryan Maginn and Ted James Stevens....
Don't tell me what you've done
Cus I don't wanna know
You say it's not so hard
Just let your conscience go

You're flashing me that politicians grin
You got your image squeaky clean
You've such a fetching smile
But a maw with sharp teeth

We're going to hell, we're going to hell
We're going to hell, we're going to hell

So show me some remorse
Show me a little guilt
Don't tell me we're just animals
Awaiting our next kill

I've been disciplined by religion, by fear
So I can't quite seem to keep my thought pure
I've a hunger for the deviant
And a thirst for worse

We're going to hell, we're going to hell
We're going to hell, we're going to hell my friends

So what's that something sinister inside
We act so civilized
Devils in tuxedos
Our sorted hearts are far too hard to hide
What's that 'neath the floorboards?

Boom boom
Boom boom
Boom boom

We're going to hell, we're going to hell
We're going to hell, we're going to hell

    General Commenthe used to say
    "I'm such a coward, such a piss ant, a shit, i shoulda killed you when i had the chance!"

    that line got me at their show, so

    then this song fucked up my summer and fall. now it finally comes out on record and he changed all my favorite lines.

    however

    the meaning of the song is that on their last album cursive feebly lauded man and cursed religion. on this album they're cursing man from a religious standpoint but the curse of religion is there too. there is no hope. i hate this worldview and wish it wasn't my own.

    General CommentFor me this song seems to be Tim saying to the devil, "we're going to hell, we're going to hell."
    The devil is mimicking him, to mock him.

    This is a pretty funny song;
    Tim: "I don't want to know what you've done!"
    Devil: "Well, look at yourself, what have YOU done!?"
