Divorced in 2008, this song is Bradford's recollection of the sensation.


Press your body against the knife
Break the skin beneath your psyche till our lust is satisfied
Carry on, as we always do
Hating one another ‘cause we can’t accept truth

Soon we’ll be satisfied
We’ll be done cutting one another with our eyes
Soon we won’t need to compromise
We’ll be free to make the same mistakes twice

Bloodshot eyes, brown and red
Angry that another man tied your hands up, then he fled
Live this dream, an imaginary jaunt
Well your friends are lying when they tell you that a stable man is what you want

Soon we’ll be satisfied
Dissolution from the bondage in the mind
Soon we won’t need each other's lies
We’ll be free to make the same mistake twice

And thank you, for the times we shared
Thank you for your honest lies
Now baby, you be you, and I’ll be me, but separately
Hold your breath we’re goin’ under
Hold your breath we’re goin’ down
Hold your breath we’re goin’ under
Baby why? Do you you cry? Oh, ‘cause...

Soon we’ll be satisfied, we’ll move on to ruining someone else’s life
Soon we’ll be satisfied, too old to give a damn who’s wrong or right

Free to make the same mistake twice
