Member when we argued on the concept of regret?
You were an expert even then but not me, not yet
Now all you gotta do's remind me that we met
And there ya got me, that's how you got me, taught me to regret

Member how I asked you why are you so mean?
You didn't know how react to bein' seen
I tried to be your friend, you made me seem so ?
And there ya got me, that's how you got me, ya taught me to be mean

[Hook x2]
I ran out of white dove feathers
To soak up the hot piss that comes through your mouth
Every time you address me

Member when I was so sick and you didn't believe me?
Then you got sick too and guess who took care of you?
You hated that, didn't you? Didn't you?
Now when you look at me, you're condemned to see
The monster your mother made you to be
And there ya got me, that's how you got free, you got rid of me

[Hook x2]

Alone
Leave me alone
Leave me alone, leave me alone
Leave me alone, leave me alone
Alone

    General CommentThis song is about being in a relationship with somebody who has put you in, as George Michael would phrase it "lover boy rules". Somebody who just wants to use you and discard you. That's supported by "I tried to be your friend you made me 'shamed." "Then you got sick and guess who took care of you. You hated that. Didn't you? Didn't you?" "And there you got me. That's how you got free. You got rid of me."

    The chorus is about how this guy simply spews hot piss every time he speaks. At first she was innocent and hadnt done anything to cause it, but at some point the fact you haven't left yet makes it your fault.

    Lyric CorrectionI think "You didn't know how to yet to bein' seen" should be "You didn't know how REACT to bein' seen".

    My OpinionI love this song, but i can't listen to it much. The pain in her voice makes it hard to listen. I think this song is about a very hurtful relationship Fiona was in, and she's (clearly) still hurt

    General CommentSounds like the relationship from hell. The most poignant song since Sullen Girl.
