Hate, need, want (or all of the above)

I once thought this might be my first real love affair;
You were not meant to be like the other ones.
But as the lust-fuelled fog clears from my head,
You’re precisely like any of the earlier ones.

Need and want collide;
You make me feel sublime.
I want you, need you,
Yet you’re a waste of time.

I thought we could be special,
But self-hatred is toxic.
Right now I mostly hate you
For all your screwed-up logic.

My back is to the wall.
Civilization must rise and fall.
I recognize it’s time to quit,
For we are not a well-made fit.

Maybe I’ve died and discovered hell?
You’re just another twisted manchild.
There’s no more excuses for you to tell
So you’ll have to find another fun ride.

I am sick of our pretence, the lack of care.
I don’t wish to lie or say
What you want to hear.
I might hate you, but I can be fair.

Hate, need, want (or all of the above)

Artist's Description

I’ve written on want vs need previously, but sometimes we return to the same preoccupations and must follow where our muse leads methinks LOL

PS: This also reminds me of a rather swear-filled rant by the Green Day lads called "Platypus (I Hate You):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qM34hG421ks
