This track was originally titled "We Are Never Going To Die." It began life as a completely different sort of song called "Abigail," fragments of which are still present in the final arrangement. I reworked the arrangement three or four times before finally settling on what you hear today.

Lyrics:
You broke a window and you crept into my mind
I am alone inside four walls of glass, venetian blinds
I laid a carpet, see, you can't remember me
A pail of paint to hide, your hand, a bucket, turpentine

You shouted "slow down" but the cadence is already laced
I am so sick of this fucking place

They bend us
They break us
They bill us
They make us cry
But we are never gonna die
We are never gonna die

They say infatuation's a dirty lie
But we are never gonna die
We are never gonna die

You broke a door latch and took everything you found
I hid my memories in a box I buried underground
There's nothing left to see. You don't remember me.
A scrap of paper with a name that doesn't make a sound

You shouted "slow down"
You shouted "slow down"

They bend us
They break us
They bill us
They make us cry
But we are never gonna die
We are never gonna die

They say infatuation's a dirty lie
But we are never gonna die
We are never gonna die
