You made bunny cry. Aren't you ashamed?
Most of the sadness captured here is relationship-inspired. Each track features an especially tear duct-draining quote. I tried to mix well-known sad bastards with a few surprises, and to play with tempo and tone a bit. Enjoy, you sad, hopeless cases.

Well I hope that someday soon
We'll find peace in our lives
Together or apart
Alone or with our wives
And we can stop our whoring
And draw the smiles inside
And light it up forever
And never go to sleep
My best unbeaten brother
That isn't all I see ++
