"Cruel" as written by and Jonathan Russell Josiah Johnson....
I can't seem to find no peace anymore.
I'll come out of this, out of this.
Everywhere I turn there seems to be another war.
We'll come out of this, out of this.

Nothing's gone right,
I'm at my wit's end.
I swear I'll come out of this, out of this.
You're losing your mind
No hope in sight
Promise you out of this.

Like the wind in the trees,
A cool summer breeze,
Like the curls in your hair,
Everyone stares at
The hole in the wall,
It's all in your head.
There's a memory there,
All through night.
Tried being cruel,
It's just not in me, it's just not in you.
Oh, tried being cruel,
It's just not in me, it's just not in you.
It's just not in me.

Now that we've come to the end
Find that we're right where we began

Now that we've come to the end
Find that we're right where we began

Now that we've come to the end
Find that we're right where we began

Now that we've come to the end
Find that we're right where we began

Tried being cruel,
It's just not in me, it's just not in you.
Oh, tried being cruel,
It's just not in me, it's just not in you.
Oh, tried being cruel,
It's just not in me, it's just not in you.
Oh, tried being cruel,
It's just not in me, it's just not in you.
It's just not in me.

    General CommentI think this song is about two friends almost ruining their friendship over a girl who eventually screws them both over. She is too beautiful to resist and one takes her from the other, but even though that should make him hate his friend for doing that -- friendship prevails.
