    The wrong people go, with jealousy and joy And I will need to seek and destroy To take from my hide, my stars to take And jealous of riches, and life's full of riches And any of us can be affected by murder Where the world dies through the hunger But it goes on, and all around you Forsaken and cruel, but it happens to be true Then why should I feel the need to kill? To take his life, and I will take his wife But such is life, the way of the world Revenge is sweet, we won't take defeat The things hard to grasp, the things from the past To have and to hold what's icy and cold And lead us toward to wanting no more And even if it is behind closed doors.

    Adding to all the love for this song. Vocals, distorted guitars, the bass line... perfect synthesis of sound. I love the dark atmosphere it conjures up.

    Could throw Liz Fraser over that instrumental, and you'd have the Cocteau Twins...I keep liking this band's tracks played here

    Why should I feel the need to kill? To take his life - and I will take his wife. But such is life, the way of the world; revenge is sweet - we won't take defeat...

    Where would one get lyrics to any of their songs? "To seek and destroy," conjures up both Iggy Pop and Henry Rollins for me. Lyrics would solve that add mental wiring I think.
