notes:
 Temperature's at a fever pitch again
Dishes meet tile, that's a wine stat on the wall
There's a new bruise just below my chin
The neighbors were considering a 911 call

I tried to track her down to make amends
but I thought I heard a shell loaded in a shotgun
It's impossible to love and harder to be friends
I can't believe I'm staying, my heart insists we're not done

I'm living to a song from the Skinny Puppy songbook
These grinding beats have chewed me up like a last meal
Hard to be surprised by the turn the music took - 
but wasn't love supposed to have a ballad feel?

The final bale of straw on the camel's back
I'm lost in the desert about to expire from thirst
The blood I've lost I'll never get back
if you're not giving your best then expect the worst
Temper's reached the boiling point
Somebody breaks something, somebody screams
I fall to the floor, my soul is out of joint
No matter how you play you end up on the losing

I'm living to a song from the Skinny Puppy songbook
These grinding beats have chewed me up like a last meal
Hard to be surprised by the turn the music took - 
but wasn't love supposed to have a ballad feel? 

...you start out with a bad pun, and then...
apologies to Pat B.
