"Itch" as written by and Jimmy/steinberg Harry....
I am evening the score
I am cutting the umbilical cord
Curled with my teeth against my knees
Scratching at my consciousness
Like a bitch with fleas
I think you'll be greatly pleased
To learn that yours was the hardest itch to relieve, I am
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve, I am
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve, I am
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve

This is me
Without my hair
Welcome to my open stare
I got nothing to hide no more
Why disguise what isn't there
I am an eyesore
I am a detour
You can find me crying on the shoulder of the road
And I will tell you what you wanna hear before I go
And that is that
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve, I am
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve, I am
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve, I am
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve

I've mapped out my course
Looks like it's all uphill
I've got a heavy heart to carry
But a very strong will
It's just hard to travel
In the shadow of regret
In fact it's so hard

That I haven't actually left yet
Well, I haven't actually left yet
No, I haven't left yet
No, I haven't left yet
No, I haven't left yet, but I'm

I'm evening the score
Mm, I am cutting the umbilical cord
Curled with my teeth against my knees
Scratching at my consciousness
Like a bitch with fleas
I think you'll be greatly pleased
To learn that yours was the hardest itch to relieve, I am
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve, I am
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve, I am
Yours was the hardest itch to relieve

    General CommentI love the way she captures such strong feelings with so few words -- "yours was the hardest itch to relieve" -- the exact way you feel when you're very hurt, like you've got this annoying itch that just won't go away- and the more you scratch it the longer it will stay- meaning the more you think about it and try to analize everything the more hurt you're gonna get-- sometimes you just hafta "cut the umbilical cord "!

    the music is amazing too!!
