Lyrics

Dinner Plate of Man

Written By: REGICIDE

DINNERPLATE OF MAN

I could tell from the first time that we met you were hungry.
I didn’t care because you looked pretty good,
and you knew I was tasty.

And if I’m cold now woman,
well I want you to know that it’s your fault.
You tore my heart off my sleeve
just to make me believe
all the lies we shared.

Now I’m red and I’m raw
and into these wounds you rub salt;
and we’ve done this before,
just enough to be sure
that you’re showing me the door.

Serve me sweetly baby
cause you know that I’ll be gone before morning.
Serve me sweetly baby
‘cause you know that I’ll be off before dawn.
Serve me sweetly baby
‘cause our love you knew would end without warning.
Serve me sweetly baby.

I could see from the look in your eyes you were needy
Didn’t know, (no I didn’t have the slightest little clue),
didn’t know that you’d bleed me.
Didn’t care because you cooked pretty good.

And yet,
as she cleared the dishes and pulled the cupboard closed,
she heard a soft voice in her head
sing of unspoken wishes and thrones deposed.

These are the things that it said:

Understand that by your hand though not through arrow nor sling,
all has been planned, now I command, let’s say
“long live the king!”

WORKSONG

I worked so hard today,
worked so hard but I didn’t get paid.
I worked so hard today,
I worked so hard and yet
I still got played.

Don’t let it be said that I didn’t care;
I didn’t get sick I just wasn’t there.
A man needs the dollars just to live his life.
(that’s my mentality, I’m not a bloody charity).

I tried so hard today,
I tried so hard to leave; somehow I stayed.
Worst choice I ever made,
didn’t even get …

Bangles

Written By: Regicide

Baby girl I don't know how I find your number when I'm down,
'cause every morning I wake up sober and burn these digits to the ground.
I know our time has passed, already said goodbye.
But those whispers down the phone are still enough to make me cry,
and I know even if I fight it there will be a next time.
I just hope I have enough to get me through this time.
Even if this love's a one way street I'm still just going to go,
'cause it's the only one that feels like it is taking me home.
