|Name||Hate This & I'll Love You|
|First live performance||15th August 1997|
|Latest live performance||29th May 2001|
|Recorded||1997 (demo), 1999|
|<||Insert current song||>|
The last song on Showbiz and rarely played live by the band.
Probable meaning: This song is probably about growing tired of a relationship of which you've given your partner too many chances.
Alternative meaning: Could be about the same person as in Hyper Music and Uno. Someone who was associated with the band before they made it, who Matthew Bellamy had reason to dislike. (On a similar theme Sunburn seems to be about a girl who was associated with them, who in contrast Bellamy regrets having to leave behind, because he sees her as a star).
If you listen closely throughout the song, cicadas can be heard chirping.
Oh I am growing tired,
Of allowing you to steal, Everything I have, you're making me feel
Like I was born to service you, But I am growing by the hour
You left us far behind, So we all discard our souls And blaze through your skies, So afraid to die
'cause I was born to destroy you, And I am growing by the hour. I'm getting strong in every way, yeah, yeah
You led me on, you led me on, you ...
Oh, and I'm getting strong in every way, Yeah, yeah
Oh I am growing tired
Of allowing you to steal Everything I had And it's making me feel
Like I walk all over you I am growing by the hour
You left me far behind And I'm always on your track And when I catch you out I will tear your soul apart
I walk all over you And I am growing by the hour And I'm getting stronger every day Yeah, yeah
You lead me on, you [?]
And I'm getting stronger every day Yeah, yeah, yeah Oooooh
