I am your sinking stone.
I'd rather be alone than drag you down and pick you up.
Haven't you been through enough?

I am the cruel one.
Don't know how I've become
A movie where the acting shows somebody you used to know.
You used to know.

Oh no.
I don't want to wake up feeling like I'm no one.
I don't want to wake up wondering how did I become the Cruel one.

It's quicker than you think.
Sadness spreads out like ink on the road and on the sea.
On the roof and balcony.

I was using loneliness and now it's using me.
There's nothing left to give to you.
One thing left to say to you.

I don't want to waste my time
standing in a waiting line,
when I know what I want, and you're just what I want.
I don't want to waste my days, worrying what they'll say.
Now I know what I want, you're just what I want.

    My InterpretationMy favorite song from Gold Motel so far. WHY ARE THERE NO COMMENTS?!?! To me, it's saying that she loves a person but being in a relationship will only result in her pulling down the other person she loves, harming them. She calls herself the "cruel one" because apparently, she's afraid of being cruel and hurting the person she really loves.
