Hey you shed your reputation
Now deny your compensation
So put your pardon in me
It pays to tell me I'm forgiven
Raise the standard stop reliving

Don't worry that anyone won't want you to
Cause nobody likes acquitters

I made a list of all the ways to get even
If I'm gonna keep track of them
I made a list up
For a number of reasons
Why I'm turning my back on them

Suppose they close the door
Suppose they close it for good

Don't worry that anyone won't want you to
Eye for an eye is no way to get even
when you think that fair is square
You can be forgiven I will not forget

There are times I wonder why that you should forgive
I fantasize that you can hit them right where they live

Don't worry that anyone won't want you to
Cause nobody knows I made a list of
All the ways to get even
If I'm gonna get back at them
I made a list up, and you may be all teasing
But it's hard to keep track when you're watching your back but
I gotta get back at them

Suppose they close the door
Suppose they close it for good

Gonna put you on and on and on and on and on

    General CommentI think the unofficial story goes that Chris Murphy and Andrew Scott had each written half a song, and then Frankensteined them together, just like Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings did with "No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature."

    I can't be sure, but if I had to guess, the parts with hard music and relatively soft lyrics are Andrew's, and the bits with happy-cutesy music and dark twisted lyrics are Murph's. It gives the whole song a great "Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde" sort of feel!
