"Thirst" as written by and Ryan Leger Steve Micciche....
There was gossip
There were pleas
There were rumors of meaning in meaningless things
Widows readied their marital beds
Litters of bastards gnawed at your breast
The filthy are first to be showered in love
The world's gone mad
We dress them in furs as they travel the earth
Saints wear rags
You blessed our home
We took you in
But you had come to a place where the plague had been
It burrowed into your graces and aires
It took your queen
It hawked your wares
The stoic are first to be covered in shit and life goes on
But when it don't anymore I'll see you in hell where I am god
God damn it, wait
They don't love you like I do
But I don't know you like them
They don't love you like I do
They love you better
I know you best
Every hostile deed is your debt
It's not mine
Every hostile deed is your debt
It's not mine

    Song Meaning"This song came to me when I was listening to Howard Stern. I love him and I love the show but one day he was going on and on about how much he has done for other people and I found myself rolling my eyes. It was all funny, but he was being so PUBLICLY virtuous that it came off as ego-maniacal and self serving.

    This song is about being desperate for the public to see you as “good” despite the fact that those close to you know you have a part of inside your heart that is pure evil."
