"Off Your Face" as written by and Kevin/butcher Shields....
Hate
Pretend that I
Adore you

Hate
What do you take me
For you

Cry-baby
Shame
You're in love
With the game
Swallow the pain
Nothing else will remain

Hate
What I will do is
Scar you

Hate
Don't say I didn't
Warn you

Cry-baby
Shame
You're in love
With the game
Riding away
And then
Care-free again

    General CommentThis song has a drama spirit that I have never found on any other work of art. It's just painfully beautiful the way the speaker confesses the emptiness of his/her love.
    The dark side of this song (which is even in its sound) is that I don't think this monologue is conscious nor explicit. More than something the speaker is saying, it seems like something the speaker knows, but is not willing to accept. In fact, it's an attitude very few people are willing to recognize (but which, sadly, exists in a lot of persons).
    The falsehood and deceit which are hidden in the supossed love of this character are beyond humanity, close to psychopathy, because he/she actually enjoys the charade.

    When I think I could encounter someone who sings this song, I get shivers down my spine.
