The song is actually titled "Setting Yourself Up For Sarcasm", but can't change the bad grammar in said title for God knows why....
You've got me shaking from the way you're talking
My heart is breaking but there's no use crying
What a cyanide surprise you have left for my eyes
If I had common sense I'd cut myself or curl up and die

Sticks and stones could break my bones
But anything you say will only fuel my lungs

Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts
If this is love I don't wanna be loved
You pollute the room with a filthy tongue
Watch me choke it down so I can throw it up.

Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts
If this is love I don't wanna be hanging by the neck
Before an audience of death.

You could be the corpse and I could be the killer
If I could be the devil, you could be the sinner
You could be the drugs and I could be the dealer
Everything you say is like music to my ears

You could be the corpse and I could be the killer
If I could be the devil, you could be the sinner
You could be the drugs and I could be the dealer
Everything you say is like music to my, music to my ears

Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts
If this is love I don't wanna be loved
You pollute the room with a filthy tongue
Watch me choke it down so I can throw it up.

Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts
If this is love I don't wanna be hanging by the neck
Before an audience of death
(Before an audience)

Failure find me
To tie me up now
'Cause I'm as bad, as bad as it gets
Failure find me
To hang me up now
By my neck cause I'm a fate worse than death

What a cyanide surprise you have left for my eyes
If I had common sense I'd cut myself or curl up and die

Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts
If this is love I don't wanna be loved
You pollute the room with a filthy tongue
Watch me choke it down so I can throw it up

Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts
If this is love I don't wanna be hanging by the neck
Before an audience

Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts
If this is love I don't wanna be loved
You pollute the room with a filthy tongue
Watch me choke it down so I can

Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts
If this is love I don't wanna be hanging by the neck
Before an audience of death

Fuck you all

    General CommentHey, I think you got some of the lyrics wrong. Here's what I've got:

    you've got me shaking from the way you're talking
    my heart is breaking but theres no use crying
    what a cyanide surprise you have left for my eyes
    if i had common sense i'd cut myself or curl up and die
    sticks and stones could break my bone
    but anything you say will only fill my lungs

    dont mind us we're just spilling our guts
    if this is love i dont wanna be loved
    you pollute the room with a filty tongue
    you watched me choke it down so why'd you throw it up

    dont mind us we're just spilling our guts
    if this is love i dont wanna be hanging by the neck
    before an audience of death

    you'd be the corpse and i would be the killer
    i'd be the devil and you would be the sinner
    you'd be the drugs and i would be the dealer
    everything you say is like music to my ears


    dont mind us we're just spilling our guts
    if this is love i dont wanna be loved
    you pollute the room with a filty tongue
    you watched me choke it down so why'd you throw it up

    dont mind us we're just spilling our guts
    if this is love i dont wanna be hanging by the neck
    before an audience of death


    failure find me
    to set me up now
    cause i'm as bad, as bad as it gets
    to hang me up now by my neck cause im a fate worse than death
    what a cyanide surprise you have left for my eyes
    if i had common sense i'd cut myself or curl up and die

    dont mind us we're just spilling our guts
    if this is love i dont wanna be loved
    you pollute the room with a filty tongue
    you watched me choke it down so why'd you throw it up

    dont mind us we're just spilling our guts
    if this is love i dont wanna be hanging by the neck
    before an audience of death

    General CommentI think the songs mainly talking about being in relationship and then having it all come crashing down in front of everyone..and being judged by everyone no matter what the truth is.

    you've got me shaking from the way you're talking < the argument starts there's no use cryin so he mind as
    my heart is breaking but theres no use crying < well defend himself
    what a cyanide surprise you have left for my eyes
    if i had common sense i'd cut myself or curl up and die
    sticks and stones could break my bone < The words she says hurt but basicly she's just adding
    but anything you say will only fill my lungs < fuel to the fire and basicly makin him more angry
    and argumentative
    dont mind us we're just spilling our guts < obviously a very personal argument in front of people
    if this is love i dont wanna be loved
    you pollute the room with a filty tongue
    you watched me choke it down so why'd you throw it up < she cussin his ass out and bringin up shit that
    < doesn't need to be public and is personal

    dont mind us we're just spilling our guts
    if this is love i dont wanna be hanging by the neck
    before an audience of death < Maybe he doesn't want to be socially hung (if that
    makes sense). Audience of Death just means judgmental
    peers. cause they're gonna judge them regardless

    you'd be the corpse and i would be the killer
    i'd be the devil and you would be the sinner
    you'd be the drugs and i would be the dealer
    everything you say is like music to my ears < I think this is just everything he is from the girls
    point of view. Like pretty much if she's anything bad
    no matter what it is he is something worse

    failure find me
    to set me up now
    cause i'm as bad, as bad as it gets
    to hang me up now by my neck cause im a fate worse than death < I think those two lines are the points of view
    what a cyanide surprise you have left for my eyes from the people the argument is taking place
    if i had common sense i'd cut myself or curl up and die in front of and that's what they think
    about him now


    Anyway that's what I think this song means.

    General Commentthe new version to this song is pretty interesting seeing that craig mabbitt is in it. I didn't even notice the first time I listened to it. I own the EP and I only knew because I read the back of the case.
