Am I the only one who doesn't totally hate "Cold Dark World"?!

Being the huge Weezer nerd that I am, I've probably read every forum topic on here at least twice, and I've noticed that on several of them, a lot people seem to strongly dislike "Cold Dark World" from the Red Album--even going as far as to say that it's one of Weezer's worst songs (if not THE worst, as I saw more than a few times). Now I'm not saying that I think it's super-duper-mindblowing-ly amazing or anything like that, but I do enjoy it quite a bit and I definitely don't consider it to be one of Weezer's bad seeds at all. Just curious to see some your input and opinions of this song, on both sides.

cold dark world doesn't deserve the reputation it has, & it would be interesting to hear rivers original demo

Rivers wrote the lyrics.  Scott wrote the music.

It was co-written with scott i think, so that may be his terrible lyrics.

I will protect you, never disrespect you,
but if you need love then I'll be here to sex you."

No matter what anybody says..this has gotta be some of the worst River's lyrics ever. Sorry. I like Red, but cringe everytime i hear this song.
I LOVE THIS SONG!  Scott is super-dreamy.  :)  The Red Album is one of my favorites.  Red Deluxe has so many good songs.   
i don't. it's a cool song..
