written 2000-ish

Forge ever onward through the gloom, brave soldiers standing still
No victory can stop us nor surrender sap our will
And though the river's course runs deep our fight will never end
'Cause I'm my own worst enemy, and I wanna be your friend.

Our battle scars we'll show and ragged banners proudly wave
As battle songs and contradict'ry words we loudly rave
Our blood will mingle ever more, our wounds will never mend
'Cause I'm my own worst enemy, and I wanna be your friend.

Loyalty and bravery, sincerety and purity, vanity, humanity, insanity, immunity, community
Piety, anxiety, society, hypocrisy, democracy, banality, finality.

Though I'm afraid to hurt myself, on you I can depend
To punish me for all my faults and hate me to the end
So please don't let my pleas for mercy drive you round the bend
'Cause I'm my own worst enemy, and I wanna be your friend.

Oh you will never see the wounds your careful words inflict
All evidence of injury my words will contradict
Sincerity and honesty I'll dutif'ly pretend
'Cause I'm my own worst enemy, and I wanna be your friend.
