Love/Hate

This song is by Liz Phair and appears on the album Liz Phair (2003).

I was a mess, in my open-eyed youth
I grew up thinking,
What's good for one, Oppresses the other,
It's my turn, my life, My way, mine, me

It made me crazy, I couldn't fight it,
I couldn't wait to get away.

It's a war, with the whole wide world,
It's a war, with the boys and girls.
It's a war, and nothin's gonna change, (nothin's gonna change)
Nothin's gonna change, (nothin's gonna change).

It's sister, and brother,
Mother, and daughter,
Father, son,
Husband, wife, thing.
It's drugs, it's hunger,
It's race, sex, and government.
Any way you look at it, you're part of it, you know it.

The wrong inside you, can't get it right,
You might as well get on the train.

It's a war, with the whole wide world,
It's a war, with the boys and girls,
It's a war and nothin's gonna change, (nothin's gonna change)
Nothin's gonna change, (nothin's gonna change).

The screen is so white, and it's so big,
It's hard to get over,
The feeling, you're losing your mind.
You offer, the usher, your ticket,
You open the soda, see what guy,
You're sitting behind.

You get excited, the lights go down,
You get it fed on a plate.

It's a war, with the whole wide world
It's a war, with the boys and girls
It's a war, and nothin's gonna change, (nothin's gonna change)
And nothin's gonna change, (nothin's gonna change).

It's a war, all the give and take,
It's a war, all the love and hate,
It's a war, and nothin's gonna change, (nothin's gonna change),
And nothin's gonna change, (nothin's gonna change).
