"The Game of Who Needs Who the Worst" as written by Tim Kasher, Matthew Ryan Maginn, Clint Frederick Schnase and Ted James Stevens....
A little bit closer,
I know you're not bashful
There, now that's not so bad, is it?
So what was that secret?
What did that prick whisper to you?
Was it playful and flirty
Or degrading and dirty?
I know you like it both ways
So -- what did he say?
To make you so goddamn defiant
So fucking triumphant

Relations, in direct competition
Domination
The players, disguised as the lovers
The best friend
A game of who needs who the worst

A little bit closer
Your lipstick is smudged, dear
Here, let me wipe that smirk off

A secret
But you couldn't keep it so secret
Relations, without hesitation
Or social tact

And as it occurred, it occurred to me
Who needs who?
Who needs who?

A little bit closer...
Closer...

    General Commentif you go to audiogalaxy.com and type in an artist in the search box, sometimes underneath the artists name after it finds it it tells you what other people also liked if they like this band. for instance, if you type in From Autumn to Ashes, the other bands they list are Poison the Well, Thursday, and Hopesfall. Well, I always find that usefull when lookin for new bands.

    Cursive makes me cry.
