Love and Hatred

Posted January 25, 2003, 9:28 p.m.

It’s morning in December
And the frost is getting bold
It’s so far beyond the summer
And the air’s been getting cold
But where you are it’s colder
Wrapped in the way you live your life
And your pangs of deep remembrance
Cut into me like a knife

It’s morning in December
And it’s tiring how you live
You take, and take, and take
Is it so hard for you to give?
But here, inside my silence
I can see right through your lies
And when you say that you still love me
I’m not dumb enough to cry, because

No matter how you try to get away
Your conscience still will haunt you
No matter what you do, it’s always there
No matter where you go
These shadows follow
In love and hatred everything is fair

It’s morning in December
And I’ve known you for so long
But every day you come to haunt me
So I write another song
And where you are this singing
Sounds like you crying in the night
Yeah, time and cosmic justice always
Somehow always sets things right, and

No matter how you try to get away
Your conscience still will haunt you
No matter what you do, it’s always there
No matter where you go
These shadows follow
In love and hatred everything is fair

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
