Nemeses/Lyrics

It's an amazing smile
Even the suit has teeth
Everything flash and guile
And nothing underneath
Except a small black heart that no one sees but me
I've been watching, I can see you start to wonder

Could it be that you need me
To keep you out, to run you faster
Promise me you'll let me be
The one, the worst of all your enemies
Pretending you're a friend to me
Say that we'll be nemeses

Being a brilliant man
Going to great expense
Devising a master plan
Doesn't make much sense
Unless you find the one you're destined to destroy
Now that you're here I don't seem that crazy do I?

Could it be that you need me
To keep you out, to run you faster
Promise me you'll let me be
The one, the worst of all your enemies
Pretending you're a friend to me
Say that we'll be nemeses

Ah yes, my old friend
You are a master of this game
The hidden blade when you pretend
That you don't even know my name
Well played

Sometimes it's hard to tell
If you even notice me
Maybe it's just as well
It's better you don't see
The way I'm running just to keep your back in view
In your shadow waiting for the perfect moment

Could it be that you need me
To keep you out, to run you faster
Promise me you'll let me be
The one, the worst of all your enemies
Pretending you're a friend to me
Say that we'll be nemeses

[edit] Notes

In the earliest performances of this song, the lyrics were substantially different. The following lyrics were used, with minor variations, in July 2010 in Northampton, MA and Somerville, MA, and in September 2010 at PAX:


You're always at your best
Always so unafraid
For you it's effortless
It's just the way you're made
And I'm exactly not like you in every way
I don't matter and that's exactly why I need you

Could it be that you and me
Are always meant to be together
Promise me you'll let me be
The one, the best of your arch enemies
Pretending you're a friend of me
Say that we'll be nemeses

I'll be a brilliant man
I'll go to great expense
Devising a master plan
You'll make me make sense
Before I found you there was no one to destroy
Now that you're here I don't seem so crazy do I?

Could it be that you and me
Are always meant to be together
Promise me you'll let me be
The one, the best of your arch enemies
Pretending you're a friend of me
Say that we'll be nemeses

Ah yes, my old friend
You are a master of this game
The hidden blade when you pretend
That you don't even know my name
Well played

Sometimes it's hard to tell
If you even notice me
Maybe it's just as well
It's better you don't see
The way I'm running just to keep your back in view
In your shadow waiting for the perfect moment

Could it be that you and me
Are always meant to be together
Promise me you'll let me be
The one, the best of your arch enemies
Pretending you're a friend of me
Say that we'll be nemeses
