"Learn To Hate" as written by Benjamin David Gillies and Daniel Paul Johns....
I wanted to be friends with her too
So my relationships could be the same as yours
I hated everyone just like you
Hating you should be introduced as a new law
Take the time to learn to hate
Come and join the mass debate
Take the time take the time
It's uphill you've gotta climb

You betrayed all the trust I gave you
Now I need therapy to hate a little more
You cannot help me to forgive you
The drugs have given you all kinds of different sores

As you pump drugs into your bloodstream
I sit observing in disgust
Hoping that you will finally come clean
So I don't have to use the gun

    General CommentI think thi is sooooo simple: The guy likes a girl who is a drug addict and he is between his love and the desire to end it and, in the process, her. That's what I think...

    General Comment"Hating you should be introduced as a new law" would have to be among the most clever lyrics Daniel ever wrote. This song is so thrashy and angry. Pretty awesome!

    General CommentHate might be the first thought at face value of what this song might be about when you first hear it. But its NOT. It's about silly immuture and chauvinistic hate. Very angsty song, definitely one of the best.

    General CommentThis song is simply stating that he gave his trust out to someone that he loved, and they screw him over, once again. I can realate to this song a lot, because I have a lot of those points in my life. Anyway, this is a rad song, awesome lyrics. silverchair is my god. i worship the ground they walk upon. GET BETTER, DANIEL JOHNS!

    General Commentmy fave line in the whole song is:
    'as you pump drugs into your bloodstream
    i sit observing in disgust'

    General CommentDefinitely about a guy (duh), liking a girl, but f--king hating the guy who she is with, and every embodiment of him.

    General CommentI read that it was about those stupid fights that people get into, and just are not worth fighting for. Just like Achilles said...
