lyrics

It turns out, I don't like you all that much,
I've spent the last few years trying to put my finger on just why.
It could be your stupid face, or your lack of social grace,
Or maybe the fact that we just don't share any common ground.

We used to be comrades of circumstance,
Placed just close enough we could keep each other dancing.
But they never told us that the song would reach its end,
And then, not soon enough, we realize we were never friends.

The pressure made us think that we were brothers,
The drugs made us think that we were lovers,
But it's hard to remember if we were ever such things.
I tried to come up with some reason to see you,
But couldn't come up with a thing that we could do.
You should be happy that I'm telling you this to your face.

Before you ask: No. No, there's nothing you can do to change the way I feel about you,
I'd rather try to herd a pride of cats on cocaine.
Comes down to the fact that I really really really don't like you all that much,
Rather than see you, I'd start an ant farm in my brain, and let the bugs drive me insane.

Mutual contempt breeds genuine affection,
A common enemy brought you to my attention,
Would we have shared two minutes without that war?
Or just smiled and nodded, and kept on walking to our separate floors?

The pressure made us think that we were brothers,
The drugs made us think that we were lovers,
But it's hard to remember we were ever such things.
I tried to come up with some reason to see you,
But couldn't come up with a thing that we could do.
You should be happy that I'm telling you this to your face.

Before you ask: No. No, there's nothing you can do to change the way I feel about you,
I'd rather try to herd a pride of cats on cocaine.
Comes down to the fact that I really really really don't like you all that much,
Rather than see you, I'd start an ant farm in my brain, and let the bugs drive me insane.
