…As if you needed further proof/but you're sure that she'll serve that too/with her biting sarcasm and when you started spazzin'/she laughed, known' fully well that your heart hadn't /fully healed from your previous squabble/and you weren't drunk enough to see the genie in that bottle/so you checked into a hostel with the clothes on your back/came home to gather your shit, she'd rummaged and trashed/ Broken frames, ripped up notepads/note sayin' “Gone hoeing, never coming back”/But there she is; mascara tears black/crouched in a corner, head full of sorrow/with trite words and clichés, careless and hollow/but today's that tomorrow that she promised yesterday/when the break up sex is done, she'll beg you to stay/Smoke a stog, walk away, one foot into the hallway you'll say...

Chee Malabar:
…So she needed that distance/to be brave enough to know she couldn't fix it/all y'all did was fight and fuck, neither one listened/…on your couch piss drunk/ tryna validate your rage by listenin' to Mel Gibson/between your vices and her need for affection/could do bad by herself she don't need your assistance/you both deserve a different sort of suitor/cause all you do together, is disappoint your futures/Y'all ain't in love, y'all just co dependent/only time you talk is through notes at the entrance/saying, 'I'm sorry…PS I borrowed a few bucks/and went to the local dive’/She went out with an older guy/ cause he treats her kind and lets her have her say/while you're still swimmin' in drink, sinking in the mess you made/so she tells her friend, there's nothing left to say, except to say...
