If a Narcissist Had an Anthem...

...it might be this song.


Why I Lie
by Liz Phair

If you ask me why I lie to you
I can tell you I don't know myself
Its amazingly dishonest
But I'd have to recognize it
As part of myself

Straighten up
Why can't you straighten up
I've heard you tell me this
So many times
It doesn't even stick

I get it all the time
I get it all the time
You know I love to make
A joke of it

And if you ask me why I hurt you
I don't understand it
I can't help myself
Its a special combination
Of predatory instinct
And simple ill will

I would give some thought to it
If I thought that it might do me
Some good
Some good

Straighten up
Why can't you straighten up
You always say I'll lose
Control of it
And thirty is not too old

Well momma I would give some thought to it
If I thought that it might do me
Some good
Some good
Some good

"I have all kinds of mental pictures immediately flashing in my head where I see myself listening for hours and hours and hours to the narcissists I've had in my life. I've probably lost entire years of my life listening to narcissists. I started being called a "good listener" by people since I hit junior high school age." I could have wrote that paragraph myself! I can only imagine how many hours, days, months and years were wasted on these so-called "conversations"!

For the longest time I thought I was truly in relationships/friendships with people. Being the constant "listener" in the relationship was what I was used to. It just felt plain right to always be on the receiving end. But then as I gradually "saw the light", I constantly had this horrible empty feeling after talking with a N. I remember thinking a lot, "Why does it ALWAYS have to be ALL about you?!!"

Little did I know I was dealing with N's. Now I'm more in tune with what people are actually saying -- just like Anna said. And now I make the choice whether I want to listen to people who are all about themselves all the time. And if I don't feel like listening, I move on quick. I know they'll find someone else to dump on, so I don't feel bad at all for making a run for it.

Another great post Anna!

I always liked "Behind Blue Eyes" by the WHO for their anthem.

Or "I'm Too Sexy"? LOL

Anyway, good one!

How 'bout this one? I found a website that has a few poems about Narcissism. This was my 'favorite'...Ugh!


LA HAINE


It starts as a small little thing,
indignation at a trespass,
anger, having been wronged.
It grows into a flag,
parading first down small streets,
sweeping up the meanderers,
then avenues and winning crowds,
cheers along the way.
It writes an anthem,
builds a campaign.
Marching through the mind
it settles thoroughly in memory and vein,
changing our posture,
the way we hold our chin.
By the time it reaches bone,
it has eaten through sinew and spine,
cost us all that was benign.
Then, rises up the starless night,
no song no light.
Suddenly afraid,
we want it out:
cut, poison, burn the blighted stem.
But rampant right breeds cell on cell
out of control,
And having eaten heart
it eats the soul.

ow 'bout this one?

yes, i'm angry.. said...

it's funny that you posted an anthem for the narcissists of this world, because i've been rocking out to some great music that hits a chord with the n's in my life lately.

anthems for n's..


"One"
Alanis Morissette

I am the biggest hypocrite
I've been undeniably jealous
I have been loud and pretentious
I have been utterly threatened
I've gotten candy for my self-interest
The sexy treadmill capitalist
Heaven forbid I be criticized
Heaven forbid I be ignored

I have abused my power forgive me
You mean we actually are all one?
one one one one one one one
I've been out of reach and separatist
Heaven forbid average (whatever average means)
I have compensated for my days
of powerlessness

I have abused my so-called power forgive me
You mean we actually are all one?
one one one one one one one

Did you just call her amazing?
Surely we both can't be amazing!
And give up my hard earned status
as fabulous freak of nature?

I have abused my power forgive me
You mean we actually are all one?
one one one one one one one
Always looked good on paper
Sounded good in theory


"Eight Easy Steps"
Alanis Morissette

How to stay paralyzed by fear of abandonment
How to defer to men in solveable predicaments
How to control someone to be a carbon copy of you
How to have that not work and have them run away from you

How to keep people at arms length and never get too close
How to mistrust the ones who supposedly love the most
How to pretend you're fine and don't need help from anyone
How to feel worthless unless you're serving or helping someone

I'll teach you all this in 8 easy steps
A course of a lifetime you'll never forget
I'll show you how to in 8 easy steps
I'll show you how leaderships looks when taught by the best

How to hate women when you're supposed to be a feminist
How to play all pious when you're really a hypocrite
How to hate god when you're a prayer and a spiritualist
How to sabotage your fantasies by fears of success

I've been doing research for years
I've been practicing my ass off
I've been training my whole life for this moment I swear to you
Culminating just to be this well-versed leader before you

How to lie to yourself and thereby to everyone else
How to keep smiling when you're thinking of killing yourself
How to numb a la holic to avoid going within
How to stay stuck in blue by blaming them for everything


anthems for me..


"Straitjacket"
Alanis Morissette

Something so benign from me construed as cruelty
Such a difference between who I am and who you see

Conclusions you come to of me routinely incorrect
I don’t know who you’re talking to with such f*cking disrespect

This shit’s making me crazy
The way you nullify what’s in my head
You say one thing do another
And argue that’s not what you did
Your way’s making me mental
How you filter as skewed interpret
I swear you won’t be happy til
I am bound in a straight jacket

Talking with you’s like talking to a sive that can’t hear me
You fight me tooth and nail to disavow what’s happening

Your resistance to a mirror I feel screaming from your body
One day I’ll introduce myself and you’ll see you’ve not yet met me

This shit’s making me crazy
The way you nullify what’s in my head
You say one thing do another
And argue that’s not what you did
Your way’s making me mental
How you filter as skewed interpret
I swear you won’t be happy til
I am bound in a straight jacket

Grand dissonance
The strings of my puppet are cut
The end of an era
Your discrediting’s lost my consent


"Versions Of Violence"
Alanis Morissette

Coercing or leaving
Shutting down and punishing
Running from rooms, defending
Withholding, justifying

These versions of violence
Sometimes subtle sometimes clear
And the ones that go unnoticed
Still leave their mark once disappeared

Diagnosing, analyzing
Unsolicited advice
Explaining and controlling,
Judging opining and meddling

These versions of violence
Sometimes subtle sometimes clear
And the ones that go unnoticed
Still leave their mark once disappeared

This labeling
This pointing
this sensitive's unraveling
This sting I've been ignoring
I feel it way down way down

These versions of violence
Sometimes subtle sometimes clear
And the ones that go unnoticed
Still leave their mark once disappeared


"Can't Not"
Alanis Morissette

I'd be lying if I said I was completely unscathed
I might be proving you right with my silence or my retaliation
Would I be letting you win in my non reaction?
How would I explain?
How would I explain this to my children if I had them?
Because I can't not
Because I can't not
Because I can't afford to be misread one more time
Would I be whining if I said I needed a hug?
Would you feel slighted if I said your love's not enough?
How can I complain?
How can I complain when i'm the one who reaches for it?
Because I can't not
Because I can't not
Because I cannot walk without my crutches
Because I can't not
Because I can't not
Because I can't help wonder why you ask me
To all the unheard wisdom in the schoolyard
You think you're the right ones
You think you're the charmed ones I'm sure
How can you go on with such conviction?
And who do you think you are why do you question me?
Because we can't not
Because we can't not
Because we can't help laugh at underestimations
Because we can't not
Because we can't not
Because we can't afford to be misled one more time
Because we can't not
Because we can't not
Because we cannot help without your willingness
Why do you affect me? Why do you affect me still?
Why do you hinder me? Why do you hinder me still?
Why do you unnerve? Why do you unnerve me still?
Why do you trigger me? Why do you trigger me still?

happy listening,

"Liar" Song by Henry Rollins

Here's the video link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxrd_jZJxkg

you think you`re gonna to live your life alone
in darkness
and seclusion
yeah I know
you`ve been out there
tried to mix with those animals
and it just left you full of humiliated confusion
so you stagger back home
and wait for nothing
but the solitary refinement of your room spits you back out onto the street
and now you`re desperate
and in need of human contact
and then
you meet me
and you whole world changes
because everything I say is everything you`ve ever wanted to hear
so you drop all your defenses and you drop all your fears
and you trust me completely
I`m perfect
in every way
cause I make you feel so strong and so powerful inside
you feel so lucky
but your ego obscures reality
and you never bother to wonder why
things are going so well
you wanna know why?
cause I`m a liar
yeah I`m a liar
I`ll tear your mind out
I`ll burn your soul
I`ll turn you into me
I`ll turn you into me
cause I`m a liar, a liar
a liar, a liar

I`ll hide behind a smile
and understanding eyes
and I`ll tell you things that you already know
so you can say
I really identify with you, so much
and all the time that you`re needing me
is just the time that I`m bleeding you
don`t you get it yet?
I`ll come to you like an affliction
and I`ll leave you like an addiction
you`ll never forget me
you wanna know why?
cause I`m a liar
yeah I`m a liar
I`ll rip your mind out
I`ll burn your soul
I`ll turn you into me
I`ll turn you into me
cause I`m a liar, a liar
liar, liar, liar, liar

I don`t know why I feel the need to lie
and cause you so much pain
maybe it`s something inside
maybe it`s something I can`t explain
cause all I do
is mess you up and lie to you
I`m a liar
oh, I am a liar

if you`ll give me one more chance
I swear that I will never lie to you again
because now I see the destructive power of a lie
they`re stronger than truth
I can`t believe I ever hurt you
I swear
I will never to you lie again, please
just give me one more chance
I will never lie to you again
I swear
that I will never tell a lie
I will never tell a lie
no, no
ha ha ha ha ha hah haa haa haa haaa
sucker
sucker!
oh, sucker
I am a liar
yeah, I am a liar
yeah I like it
I feel good
ohh I am a liar
yeah
I lie
I lie
I lie
oh, I lie
oh I lie
I lie
yeah
ohhh I`m a liar
I lie
yeah
I like it
I feel good
I`ll lie again
and again
I`ll lie again and again
and I`ll keep lying
I promise

yes, i'm angry.. said...

i know.. just one more. this is definitely a victory anthem for me as far as my n-mil.

"Unprodigal Daughter"
Alanis Morissette

I had disengaged to avoid being totalled
I would run away and say good riddance soon enough
I had grown disgusted by your small-minded ceiling
To imagining myself bolting had not been difficult

Soon be my life
Soon be my pace
Soon be my choice of which you'll have no part of

Unprodigal Daughter and I'm heading for the west
Disenchanted daughter and this plane cannot fly fast enough
Unencumbered daughter hit the ground running at last!
I'd invite you but I'm busy being unoppressed

I hit the ground running although I know not what toward
I hit the town reeling forgetting all that came before
I felt primed and ready unsurrounded by the pawns
I felt culture shocked, but dissuaded, I was not

This is my town
This is my voice
This is my taste of what you've have no part of

Unprodigal Daughter and I'm heading for the west
Disenchanted daughter and this plane cannot fly fast enough
Unencumbered daughter hit the ground running at last!
I'd invite you but I'm busy being unoppressed

One day I'll saddle back and speak foreign adventures
One day I'll double back and tell you about these unfettered years
One day I'll look back and feel something other than relieved
Glad that I left when I did before you dear, you can't get the best of me

When I'd speak of artistry you would roll your eyes skyward
When I'd speak of spirituality you'd label me absurd
When I spoke of impossibility you would frown and shake your head
If I had stayed much longer I'd have surely imploded

These are my words
This is my house
These are my friends of which you've had no part of

Unprodigal Daughter and I'm heading for the west
Disenchanted daughter and this plane cannot fly fast enough
Unencumbered daughter hit the ground running at last!
I'd invite you but I'm busy being unoppressed

Unprodigal Daughter and I'm heading for the west
Disenchanted daughter and this plane cannot fly fast enough
Unencumbered daughter hit the ground running at last!
I'd invite you but I'm busy being unoppressed


great songs everyone! music is definitely one of my biggest ways of dealing with my emotions stemming from the n's in my life. thanks for sharing. =)

My paternal grandmother was a narcissist. I was her only grandchild. I would fail to meet her lofty, undisclosed "standards" and the guilt tips were unbearable. With her, it was always something. She has been gone now for 5 years. I thought it would get better, but her youngest son picked up where she left off with his own special brand of narcissism.

After the death of my grandmother, my grandfather was lonely, vulnerable, and in ever worsening health. "Uncle Greedy" as my father and I now refer to him undertook a 3 year campaign of undue influence, financial exploitation of his frail father. During this time my grandfather executed 5 codicils to his will, each benefitting uncle greedy more and more until he was slated to end up with all of the land, mineral rights, and (of course) was to be executor and trustee so that he would be in total control. We are currently in the process of suing him for several torts, but any way we go, he still benefits from his evil undertaking. (He is a lawyer, by the way - so there is little we can do to undo some of the benefits he will receive.

I am a believer that Knowledge is a treatment for fear, and that fear comes from loss of control, My quest for knowledge and information to explain how a human being could possibly do what Uncle Greedy has done. which is what led me to your blog.

Anyway - I was so angry, upset, dumbfounded, and disgusted that I made a CD with songs that either described my vast spectrum of my feelings, or described Uncle Greedy.

Here are the lyrics to a few of them:


Bottom
(written by Henry Rollins)
Performed by Tool and Henry Rollins

Compassion is broken now.
My will is eroded now,
and my desire is broken now
and it makes me feel ugly.

I'm on my knees and burning.
My piss and moans are the fuel that,
set my head on fire.
So smell my soul is burning.

And I'm broken, looking up to see the enemy.

And I have swallowed the poison you feed me...
but I survive on the poison you feed me
Leaving me
guilt fed,
hatred fed,
weakness fed..
and it makes me feel ugly.

On my knees and burning.
My piss and moans are the fuel that
set my head on fire.
I'm dead inside!

(Shit ads up 3x)
Shit adds up at the bottom...

-Henry Rollins: If I let you, you would make me destroy myself. But in order to survive you, I must first survive myself. I can sink no further and I cannot forgive you. There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice. Shameless now. Nameless now. Nothing now. No one now. But my soul must be iron because my fear is naked. I'm naked and fearless.
And my fear is naked!

(Dead inside. 4x)
Needless now,
shameless now,
nothing now,
no one now.
(Shit adds up 4x)
You see me naked now,
fearless now,
naked now,
fearless now.
You see... shit adds up.
Shit adds, shit adds, shit adds up.
It leaves me (dead inside 3x),
dead, inside!

Hatred keeps me alive,
ugliness keeps me alive,
weakness keeps me alive,
guilt keeps me alive
at the bottom!


INTOLERANCE
by TOOL

I don't want to be hostile.
I don't want to be dismal.
And I don't want to rot in an apathetic existence.
See I want to believe you,
and I want to trust
and I want to have faith to put away the dagger.

But you lie, cheat and steal.
And I tolerate you.

but you lie, cheat and steal.
How can I tolerate..

veil of virtue hung to hide your method
while I smile and laugh and dance
and sing your praise and glory.
shroud of virtue hung to mask your stigma
as I smile and laugh and dance
and sing your glory
while you

lie, cheat, and steal.
how can I tolerate you?

our guilt, our blame,
I've been far too sympathetic.
our blood, our fault
I've been far too sympathetic

I am not innocent
I am not innocent.
you are not innocent.
no one is innocent.

You lie cheat and steal

How can I tolerate you?

I will not tolerate you.
I will go down beside you.
I must go down beside you.

No one is innocent

Lie!

WALK
by PANTERA

Can't you see I'm easily bothered by persistence
One step from lashing out at you...
You want in to get under my skin
And call yourself a friend
I've got more friends like you
What do I do?

(pre) is there no standard anymore?
What it takes, who I am, where I've been
Belong
You can't be something you're not
Be yourself, by yourself
Stay away from me
A lesson learned in life
Known from the dawn of time

respect, walk

Run your mouth when I'm not around
It's easy to achieve
You cry to weak friends that sympathize
Can you hear the violins playing your song?
Those same friends tell me your every word

Are you talking to me?
No way punk

JERK OFF
by TOOL

"Used to be a bunch of assholes that lived in this part of the building here.
But we systematically removed them like you would any kind of termite or
roach."
Someone told me once that there's a right and wrong.
Punishment was cure for those who dare to cross the line.
But it must not be true for jerk-offs just like you.
And maybe it takes longer to catch a total asshole.
But I'm tired of waiting.
Someone told me once that there's a right and wrong.
Punishment was cure for those who dare cross the line.
But it must not be true for jerk-offs just like you.
And maybe it's just bullshit. I should play god and shoot you myself.
Tired of waiting.
Consequences dictate course of action.
And it doesn't matter what's right.
It's only wrong if you get caught.
If consequences dictate my course of action I should,
I should play god and just shoot you myself.
Tired of waiting.
Die.
Shoot it.
Kick it.
F**k it.
Shoot you in your f**kin' head

WOW!! There are so many songs that seem to be about narcissism/narcissists!! It makes me wonder if these artists have personal experiences with these evil creatures! And all the songs that have been written by Alanis Morisset really makes me wonder...If she was a victim of narcissists, she managed to rise above it big time! XD


Here is another song that reminds me very much of my family life and really seems to be about narcissism too. I don't think you would like the type of music coz it’s a bit loud (it is appropriate because it expresses the pain that these experiences cause and very well indeed) but it rings very true for me.


Linkin Park-Numb

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me
Holding too tightly afraid to lose control
Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

And I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me with someone disappointed in you

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I'm tired of being what you want me to be
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I'm tired of being what you want me to be

Another loud song, but fitting I think. I also think that it describes the crazy making behaviour of the narcissists and it describes how narcissists hi jack the consciences of the normal and decent: Linkin Park Papercut.


Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today.
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
Like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
(And watches everything)

So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me
Right beneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You've got a face on the inside too and
Your paranoia's probably worse
I don't know what set me off first
But I know what I can't stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I can't add up to what you can but

Everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
(And watches everything)

So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too
Right inside your skin

[x2]
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

The face inside is right beneath your skin [x3]

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me

The sun
I feel the light betray me
The sun
I feel the light betray me

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

A not so noisy one, but it also seems to be about narcissism: Missy Higgins-Scar

He left a card and a bar of soap with
scrubbing brush next to a note,
That said "use these down to your bones".
And before I knew I had shiny skin and
it felt easy being clean like him,
I thought "this one knows better than I do"

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
He tried to cut me so I'd fit

And doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver; the way things could've gone?
And doesn't it feel peculiar that everyone wants a little more. So that I do remember to never go that far,
Could you leave me with a scar?

So the next one came with a bag of treats,
She smelled like sugar and spoke like the sea
She told me don't, trust them trust me.
Then she pulled at my stitches one by one,
Looked at my insides clicking her tongue,

And said "This will all have to come undone".

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle,
She tried to blunt me so I'd fit.

And doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver;
the way things could have gone?
And doesn't it feel peculiar,
that everyone wants a little more?
So that I do remember to never go that far,
Could you leave me with a scar?

I think I realized just in time,
about my old self was hard to find.
You can bathe me in your finest wine but I'll never give you mine.
'Cos I'm a little bit tired of fearing that
I'll be the bad fruit nobody buys,
Tell me, did you think we'd all dream the same?

And doesn't that sound familiar?
Doesn't that hit too close to home?
Doesn't that make you shiver;
the way things could have gone?
And doesn't it feel peculiar
that everyone wants a little more?
so that I do remember to never go that far,
Could you leave me with a scar?
could you leave me with a scar? ah-ah-ah.

could you leave me with a scar

This song makes me wonder if she was also a victim of a narcissist: Kelly Clarkson-Because of You



I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way, to never let it get that far

Because of you
I will never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake, a smile, a laugh
Every day of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I will never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry
Every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry
In the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I will never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you
I tried my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you

Hi again! Just in case I mucked up my comment posting (like accidently posting comments on the wrong blog entry! ^^; ) The comments with song lyrics are meant to go on "If a Narcissist Had an Anthem..." post. I get a bit confused with what I written because I can't see how my comments turned out after I posted them because you obviously have to review them before they're posted (some of the responses to your previous posts have shown us that there are some REAL morons out there. :-( ). Thanx for your patience with me! :-)

Just finished my millionth relationship with a narcissist. While I am disgusted with myself, for obvious reasons, I also feel empowered because I ended this last relationship relatively early and pieced together the problem faster than the last. I think I have finally learned some of the narcissistic personality, tell tale signs and am bound and determined to not fall into the web of abuse and lies again. This is the song that he dedicated to himself as his theme song when I dumped his sorry butt: Every Me and Every You by Placebo:
Sucker love is heaven sent.
You pucker up, our passion's spent.
My hearts a tart, your body's rent.
My body's broken, yours is bent.

Carve your name into my arm.
Instead of stressed, I lie here charmed.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.

Sucker love, a box I choose.
No other box I choose to use.
Another love I would abuse,
No circumstances could excuse.

In the shape of things to come.
Too much poison come undone.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Sucker love is known to swing.
Prone to cling and waste these things.
Pucker up for heavens sake.
There's never been so much at stake.

I serve my head up on a plate.
It's only comfort, calling late.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Like the naked leads the blind.
I know I'm selfish, I'm unkind.
Sucker love I always find,
Someone to bruise and leave behind.

All alone in space and time.
There's nothing here but what here's here's mine.
Something borrowed, something blue.
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Every me and every you,
Every Me...he (x4)

"I'm A Ruin" - Marina and The Diamonds

I know that I can’t have it all
But without you I am afraid I’ll fall
I know I’m playing with your heart
And I could treat you better but I’m not that smart

When it comes to love, you’re an easy fight
A flower in a gun, a bird in flight
It isn’t fair and it isn’t right
To lead you on like it’s all alright

I played with your heart
And I could treat you better but I’m not that smart
You still mean everything to me
But I wanna be free

I’ll ruin, yeah, I’ll ruin you
I’ve been doing things I shouldn’t do

[2x]
Yeah, uh huh, ooh, yeah
Yeah, uh huh, ooh, yeah

It’s difficult to move on
When nothing was right and nothing’s wrong
You still can’t look me in the eye
'Cause you’ve been bitten once and now you’re twice as shy

I’ve had my share of beautiful men
But I’m still young and I wanna love again
It’s difficult to say goodbye
And easier to live a lover’s lie

And I’ve tried to say
Babe, I’m gonna ruin you if you let me stay
You still mean everything to me, to me
But I wanna be free

I’ll ruin, yeah, I’ll ruin you
I’ve been doing things I shouldn't do

[2x]
Yeah, uh huh, ooh, yeah

It doesn’t feel right and it doesn’t feel fair
When I’m planning to move on and you’re still standing there
Don’t wanna keep a secret but I don’t know how to keep it fair, yeah

I’ll ruin, yeah, I’ll ruin you
I’ve been doing things I shouldn’t do

But I don’t wanna say goodbye
But, baby, I don’t wanna lie
To lie, to lie to you
I’m a ruin
