"There's A Place In Hell For Me And My Friends" as written by and Steven Patrick/nevin Morrissey....
There is a place
Reserved
For me and my friends
And when we go
We all will go
So you see
I'm never alone
There is a place
With a bit more time
And a few more
Gentler words
And looking back
We will forgive
(We had no choice
We always did)
All that we hope
Is when we go
Our skin
And our blood
And our bones
Don't get in your way
Making you ill
The way they did
When we lived
Oh, there is a place
A place in hell
Reserved
For me and my friends
And if ever I
Just wanted to cry
Then I will
Because I can

    My InterpretationThis song is from an bitter ex-lover, friend, family member to whomever they have denounced. Straight, gay doesn't matter. You don't have to be either to know what it's like to lose favor of any of the above.

    ----
    My friends and I have a place reserved for us...you made the reservations. Somewhere we will all be happy with one another, good times and bad.

    We know it was you who "sent us here" in your mind. And we forgive.

    We do not want to be a bother to you, and hope that our passing from your life doesn't bother your happiness.

    The hell we have been sent to has been created in your head, and your head alone. And to that, I cannot change your mind. Just pity your stubbornness to see how short life truthfully is.

    General CommentThis lyric:

    And looking back
    We will forgive
    (We had no choice
    We always did)

    was sometimes changed to

    And looking back,
    I won't forgive,
    and I never will, I never will,
    I never will.

    An example if this can be seen in a youtube video of Morissey performing this song for a soundcheck in the 90s. Search for it!
