--Verse 1(1:06):

B                  Badd5b2          B
This is a hatesong, just meant for you
B                                Badd5b2        B
I thought that i'd write it down, while I still could.
B                         Badd5b2         B
I hope when you hear this, you'll want to sue...

--Verse 2(2:02):

B                          Badd5b2    B
Oh it's a lonely life in my, empty bed
B                                Badd5b2     B
And it's a quiet life that leaks, from my head
B                       Badd5b2           B
These are the last rites, the line is dead
