"Unkind" as written by Brian Yale, Robert Kelly Thomas, John Goff and John Joseph Stanley....
Bring it on baby, what you getting into
Is living on pain the thing that's getting to you
Write my name, pin it up with my picture
And say it's the only thing 'cause I'm not around to be around

I'm beaten and battered, hell if my dreams get shattered then
Pain gives me the right to be unkind

Bring it on baby, what's with sudden devotion
I trade a river of tears for just a little emotion
You can curse my name, pin it up with my picture
And say it's the last time that I'll be around to be around

Oh well I'm torn and I'm tattered
So the thoughts in my head they get scattered
Oh well pain gives me the right to be unkind
And it set's me here

Right back to the heart of it
Jones Crazy is a slight defense from it
Jones Crazy is a place I call my own, (when I'm alone, dig)

So Bring it on baby, what you getting into
Well I swear at once it was the little things that mattered
But it all seems true to you
Say the hell with my name and say the hell with my picture
Yeah but swear for the one time you need me around to be around
Well I'm around right now

And here I'll stand like it matters
Only once gets through and then gets scattered by the rain
But pain gives me the right to be unkind
And it sets me here

Right back to the heart of it
Jones Crazy is a slight defense from it
Jones Crazy is a place I call my own, (when I'm alone, dig)

Right back to the heart of it
Jones Crazy is a slight defense from it
Jones Crazy is a place I call my own, (when I'm alone, dig)

Right back to the heart of it
Jones Crazy is a slight defense from it
Jones Crazy is a place I call my own, (when I'm alone, dig)

    General Commentthis song is so great, I always look at how mean and how much of a jerk I am after I've been hurt, and I listen to this song and it gives me motivation not to be such a jerk, and when the girls come back and all of the sudden they are a friend again, and then they are gone, and then they are devoted, it gets tiring, causes hurt, cause me to be a freaking jerk, like bush and saddam... Bush: "he threatened my daddy", Saddam: "get over it", Bush: "no, i will bomb you since congress for some reason decided to give me the right to declare war"... I hate bush, I say someone assassinates him...
