lyrics

No, I won't say anything nice about you
unless there's something in it for me
No, I can't be gracious enough to hold the door open for you
unless you pay the fee
Kindness no longer resides here so don't come here looking for a charity
We don't tolerate strangers here so best you keep moving your feet

What I lack in empathy I have even less of it when it comes to sympathy
Even if you were dying on the side of a dirt road and your guts strewn out and mixed with the leaves
I just as soon spit on you and wander off to find myself some better company
I pray death never finds you to provide you a reprieve from your petty miseries

I can see you cowering behind words that are meant to deceive
I can see the burden that you carry with you that you think makes you complete
And that shit about the hour being the darkest just before the dawn is perceived
Hope can go fuck itself it's done nothing for me
