I LAUGHED AT WHAT WAS SAID, I’D BEEN MISLED, CONFUSING MY ENEMIES
BLIND TRUST IN WHAT WAS PUT IN FRONT OF ME
YOU LAUGHED AS WELL, IN ON THE JOKE ALL POKERFACED
FINGERS CROSSED BEHIND YOUR BACK
EYES NOT BETRAYING HOW THE DECK WAS STACKED

AND I’D LIKE TO BE THE ONE TO WIPE THAT SMILE FROM YOUR FACE
TO LET YOU TASTE THE BITTERNESS THAT PASSING TIME HAS NOT ERASED
AND WHEN THE HOUSE OF CARDS YOU BUILT HAS FINALLY TOPPLED IN DECLINE
I HOPE THE PUNISHMENT AND PAIN WILL LAST A LIFETIME

YOU COAST ALONG YOU’RE SO DAMN SMART YOU THINK
BUT NOT QUITE INVISIBLE, YOU’RE IN MY EYE AND UNFORGIVABLE

CUZ I’M ONE STEP QUICKER THAN THE LAST MOTHERFUCKER
THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU GOT OVER ON BUT THEY COULDN’T WAIT AS LONG
TO SEE IT THROUGH
YOU’LL LET YOUR COMFORT GET THE BEST OF YOU

YOU’LL NEVER SEE IT COMING, OUT OF THE BLUE
LIKE IT WAS NOTHING, BUT YOU WILL KNOW YOUR SITUATION
BECAUSE THE END WAS YOU CREATION

    General Commentthis was the first dillinger four song i ever heard. it's cool how the music and melody are so upbeat and happy and everything, but the lyrics are basically saying "fuck you" to his old girlfriend.

    General CommentI don't think it's a 'fuck you' to an old girl friend. It sounds more like a business deal. Maybe with a promoter or a label? It sounds like a that person was present at some deal and let them get screwed...

    General Commentactually, I think its about Maximum Rock n Roll.. (ie Maximum Piss and Vinegar)

    the zine got fairly bitter towards nearly everyone toward the precorporate times of it.

    General CommentWay to misspell "Vinegar"

    Kick-ass song though, probably my 2nd or 3rd favorite D4 song.
