"Terms of Psychic Warfare" as written by and Grant Hart....
I see you walking down the road
And the thoughts within my mind explode
But having to hold back taught me a lot about control
And letting it all loose at once when it was time to let you know
You occupied my space and you occupied your mind
By jumping off the roof to the first conclusion you can find

Now all the silver you can steal
Can't buy a piece of what I feel
It's sad but the means they just don't justify the ends
To be forever haunted by the ghosts of all your friends
Painful, yeah that's the way you've chosen it to be
C'mon can't you think of anyone besides me?

Now don't think you're the only one who harbours a self hate
I'm just as guilty of selling what my sweet soul creates
And don't feel bad the next time my memory comes creepin'
You've got your own bed now, I suggest that's the one you sleep in

    General CommentThis is just one example of why you don't want to be Grant Hart's bad side. Others include: Never Talking to You Again; Don't Want to Know If You Are Lonely; and Sorry Somehow. But when's happy and in love he gets all gooey, like on, Green Eyes and just plain really happy as on Keep Hanging On.

    General Comment"You've got your own bed now, I suggest that's the one you sleep in" - one of my favourite most spiteful lines I've ever heard.

    General Commentyeah, this is a cold, cold song. He really met the perfcet ballance of making it not too vague but not too specific, so that alot of poeple can say that they relate to it, and kind of feel singled out, as if they could identify with it personally

    General Commentokiraan is on the mark: Grant really knew how to write a f***-off song. That's why the Posies song about him is so perfect: "Take two Grant Harts and call me when you die!"
