"Can't You See" - Devin's Inferno

"Can't You See" is a perfect case study in how not to tell off an ex. Thirty seconds of late-'90s pop-punk power chords isn't enough time to prepare a well-thought-out speech, so verse one is mostly stammered babble. "I can't seem to get you off my mind," begins one half-coherent statement, followed by "Now are you satisfied? You're the reason why I cry." As if realizing this is going badly, the band cuts back in after a few minutes to rock away the humiliation, but the whininess of ill-advised parting shot "Now you're finally gone, why can't I move on?" kills even the remotest chance of make-up sex. Bad move. You've really gotta rehearse this stuff beforehand, guys.
