background
Garden Of Hate was one of a batch of new songs which appeared during the band's Life In A Day tour. Probably considered good enough for an official release, it was quickly recorded for the flip of the Chelsea Girl single.

However, it didn't survive beyond the tour and was quickly dropped.




lyrics
Oh I only had enough of you,
Oh I did not ask for nothing else.
But you've gone and found a one-way out,
I stand here by myself.
Oh I see a man he's got a broken arm,
I don't know if I care.
Follow him into the garden of hate,
Everybody's going to be there.

It's been some time since I last saw you.
Can somebody here please tell me why?
So many things I just don't understand,
No matter how I try.
A girl I know got quite cut up one night,
I don't know if I care.
She was in my garden of hate,
So many others are there.

Garden of hate,
Ha Haha garden of hate,
Garden of hate,
Ha haha garden of hate.
