Hate Me
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
Hey Just, this is your mother.  It is 2:33 on Monday afternoon.  I was just calling to see how you were doing; you sounded really uptight last night, made me a little nervous, and a little-and-well, it made me nervous that, you sounded like you were nervous too.  And I just wanted to make sure you were really OK, and...just wanted to see if you were checking in on your medications.  You know I love you!  And I'll talk to you soon.  Take care, honey, I know you're under a lot of pressure.  See ya!  Bye bye.

I have to block out thoughts of you
So I don't lose my head
They crawl in like a cockroach
Leaving babies in my bed
Dropping little reels of tape
To remind me that I'm alone
Play movies in my head
That make a porno feel like home
There's a burning in my pride
A nervous bleeding in my brain
An ounce of peace is all I want for you
Will you never call again?
And will you never say that you love me
Just to put it in my face
And will you never try to reach me
It is I that want this

Chorus:
Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you
Hate me in ways
Yeah, ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

I'm sober now for three whole months
It's one accomplishment that you helped me with
The one thing that always tore us apart
Is the one thing I won't touch again
In my sick way I want to thank you
For holding my head up late at night
While I was busy waging wars on myself
You were trying to stop the fight
You never doubted my warped opinions
On things like suicide or hate
You made me compliment myself
When it was way too hard to take
So I'll drive so fucking far away
That I never cross your mind
And do whatever it takes in your heart
To leave me behind

Chorus:
Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you
Hate me in ways
Yeah, ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave
Kicking shadows on the street
For every mistake that I had made
And like a baby boy I never was a man
Until I saw your blue eyes cry
And I held your face in my hand
And then I found out, yelling "make it go away!
Just make a smile come back and shine
Just like it used to be"
And then she whispered "how can you do this to me?"

Chorus:
Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you
Hate me in ways
Yeah, ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you
For you
For you
For you
This is the CD version of Hate Me from Foiled.  There are four other versions - an acoustic version that's available with a preorder from the website, a shorter version on the Hate Me CD-single with a shorter first chorus, a radio version also on the CD-single that is the same as the shorter version, except censored and no intro or outro, and an older demo version with weaker singing on the chorus and less guitar.

When played live, Hate Me begins with the phone call too, a previously recorded part over the speakers.
