|Rivers Cuomo song chronology|
"Death and Destruction" is the fifth track on Maladroit.
"Death and Destruction" was originally an instrumental song. It was first recorded by the band during the SnS Demos in August of 2001, and an mp3 of this instrumental demo was released at Weezer's official site shortly thereafter. The first known version of the song to include vocals was recorded on January 7, 2002. An alternate mix of the live version from The Lion and the Witch EP was released as a B-side on a UK "Keep Fishin'" single. In 2005, Weezer returned to playing the song instrumentally during their shows. "Death and Destruction" is often abbreviated as "D&D," but the the song is unrelated to the board game Dungeons and Dragons. The song ends with Weezer lead singer Rivers Cuomo spelling out the words "I love you."

I can't say
That you love me.
So I cry
And I'm hurting.
That I call you.
You find some
Way to ditch me
So I learn to turn and walk the other way.
