"Misery" as written by and Andrew Cairns....
Here comes the misery, yeah
Coming back to make me pay, yeah
I wanted you haunting me, but not just yet
Give the memories time to blossom into regret

You come to my house
I don't know what you're talking about
I owe you nothing, I owe you nothing
You say you need friends or something
Just shut up, I'm feeling guilty
Get away from me I'm thinking, no way this again

You come and stand and face me, you're betrayed
Like I should say something or ask you to stay
And now you're gonna go all girlie on me
You always left me wanting, now I want you to leave

You can talk about the things that you say you left behind
While you lead me down dark alleys in the ghettos of your mind
You've got that look on your face
That I could never comprehend anyway

Fuck you, waste my time
And tell me that you're broken hearted now
A long way back to where you've been
You cry alone, martyrs alone

Here comes the misery, yeah
Coming back to make me pay, once again
I wanted you haunting me, but not just yet
You better go before I do something I regret

You can run, call the cops
Cry your eyes out, give them the lot
You can say I marked your face
But you do these things to yourself anyway
I can never be with you
This is over, this is over, this is over, hey

    General CommentAbout somebody not wanting to have to face a lover they've recently broken up with. A lot of songs on Infernal Love fit together like that (and so do the two b-sides from the album's singles, too), almost like a jumbled up concept album. For example, it could go:

    Epilepsy (Infatuation)
    Loose (A great time together)
    A Moment Of Clarity (Recognition of the relationship's failures)
    Nice Guys (The start of the deterioration)
    Our Love Must Die (The breakup)
    Bowels Of Love/Misery (A subsequent confrontation from both sides of the argument)
    Me Vs You (Failed attempt at reconciliation)
    Diane (I know it's a cover, but it could be revenge)
    30 Seconds (Despair/Hope)

    Dunno how to fit Stories, Jude The Obscene or Bad Mother in, though... but a lot of these songs seem to reference some sort of gap in age and experience - such as A Moment Of Clarity ('Your innocence is cruel'), Bowels Of Love ('Naive and ugly'), Me Vs You ('Feeding on your innocence'), Diane ('Hey, little girl...'), Nice Guys ('Took this girl in desperation') and Our Love Must Die ('My dear young lover'). Well, it makes sense to me.
