This is a song about those little groups, those little cliques, those little clubs, those little cults who woo-you-in with talk of love and brotherhood but ONLY if you follow their rules! Love should be UNconditional!


You say you love me
But you won’t talk to me.
You want to save me
But you just ignore me.

I’m sick of your conditional love,
I know it’s not from above.
I’m sick of your conditional love
It’s a sham, that’s all

When we’re on the street
It’s like you don’t see me.
Every time we meet
Your eyes reject me.

If I’ve done wrong,
Then why don’t you scream it.
You walk along
Your lips don’t say it.

If love throws fear outside
Why does your love scare me?
You say my end is nigh
Why don’t you rescue me?

When I’m dead and gone
Will you come to regret it?
It’ll be too late
To talk and you know it.
