"You Made Me Realise" as written by and Kevin Shields....
What did (you say you'd) find
Then come, come, come, get the hell inside
You can close your eyes
Well you might as well commit suicide

Wait for me because I waited for you
No that's not what you should do
Don't hate me 'cause I don't hate you
Insane eyes
You made me realize

Something in you died
Well no, no, no, no fault of mine
Something in you died
Well no, no, no, no fault of mine

Make the (hell) out of what you can see
Maybe then you'll not hang beside me
Don't ask me 'cause I cannot see
Insane eyes
You made me realize

What did (you say you'd) find
Then come, come, come, get the hell inside
You can close your eyes
Well you might as well commit suicide

Wait for me because I waited for you
No that's not what you should do
Don't hate me 'cause I don't know you
Insane eyes
You made me realize

    My InterpretationI think its about someone with unrealistic expectations of someone else (Wait for me because I waited for you No that's not what you should do Don't hate me 'cause I don't know you) like the other person is not as deeply serious about the relationship as the other person, to the point where its quite irritating. Sorry this makes more sense in my head lol.
    And maybe the narrator finally realized this other person has "insane eyes" and is a bit of a stalker.
    eg "Maybe then you'll not hang beside me"
    clearly its a bit one-sided.

    General CommentIt seems it as about a frustrating relationship, and the narrators overall cynicism toward the whole thing of how the other person completely blew it for no apparent reason, therefore they are crazy... Could literally be about someone he knew being crazy and just losing it. At least this is my interpretation.

    General CommentYeah, the harmony of the chorus is killer.
    The microphones and the general sound of the vocals is impressive. I miss the old sound of analog shit like that being pushed to it's limits.

    Amazing song through and through.

    General Commentthis song is wonderful, very sonic youth-esque (silver rocket anyone?).

    not sure what it's about. i get the feeling that it's being sarcastic, taking the piss out of some person who's really negative ("might as well commit suicide") & always desperate for sympathy, & then when the narrator doesn't buy it the person "hates them"..

    but that's prob a long shot. :P

    General CommentI can honestly say I have no idea what this song is about.
    But it's still amazing.
    The line You Made Me Realise gives me chills.
    I want to see them live so bad.
