"Our Perfect Disease" as written by and Matthew Edward/haggis Murphy....
We dont admit it but we never seen eye to eye
My hobby's moaning and yours is making money
It's always a shock when old friends pass by
But with you its no death in the family

Lets not talk about hate when theres hell to pay
For my cowardice and your bad timing
We dont admit it but we never seen eye to eye
But its not through a lack of trying

It was the perfect disease we had
Something to argue and scream about
Who do I see about contracting it back?
And locking it somewhere it cant get ripped out
It was the perfect disease we had
And its absence lies a painful fact
We all need someone to drive us mad

I didnt say it but you never were the honest type
You tried to fabricate a bedtime story
And now I miss those games we had of Jekyll and Hyde
Ever since the day that we parted company

Dont send a helping hand
I need a battering ram
To beat the reasons that I miss you so sorely
We didnt say it but we never saw eye to eye
Now life is carefree and equally as boring

It was the perfect disease we had
Something to argue and scream about
Who can I see about contracting it back?
And locking it somewhere it can't get ripped out
It was the perfect disease we had
And in its absence lies a painful fact
We all need someone to drive us mad

I need you in the tv
I need you on the train
I need you every single which way
I need you in the mirrors
I need you in my bed
I needed you to wreck my head
I need you in the tv
I need you on the train
I need you just to stand in my way
I need you in the mirrors
I need you in my bed

It was the perfect disease we had
Something to argue and scream about
Who can I see about contracting it back?
And locking it somewhere it can't get ripped out
It was the perfect disease we had
And its absence lies a painful fact
We all need someone to drive us mad

    General CommentLyrics are spot on. A lot of sites have "My heartbeat". It is certainly hobby because it makes much more sense. For me it is a song about a girl and a boy who recently broke up and he feels that although they've made each other angry and sad they were a good thing and he wants her back.
    Great song!

    My InterpretationI think it's about two people who have a love/hate relationship. They're two opposites but opposites attract so it's not necessarily a bad thing. He likes how she makes him feel, even though most of time its anger. Even though they argue to only separate and then get back together, he likes it and wants to get it back every time they lose it. We all need someone who is equally crazy and brings out our crazy, that shows love.

    General CommentThe lyrics need editing: "My heartbeat's moaning and yours is making money" and "Who do I see about contracting it back?", "I need you to wreck my head."

    Otherwise, heard this on the radio for the release of the album, really hooked. As far as break-ups go I love the song for the bitterness.
