black midi – Eat Men Eat Lyrics

It’s always hidden
Drying your clothes in the sun
Alone
Slowly burning, away
I’m so thirsty I might die 30 miles from the mines
Have you seen the drunken captain singing:
“What do you want to know?”

Held our aching arms aloft
“Help yourselves men to whiskey, onions, and cheese!
Eat men, eat! Eat men, eat! Eat men, eat!”

Company
Wake with a start
Stomachs open, burning hearts
Captain bottles readies red wine
Remember why we’re here
Don’t touch

Three long nights in the pits they called hell
Captain’s food got me sick and oh, so sleepy
I love you, but I can feel my chest bubbling
Oh, so heavy and then, oh, so light
Almost something…
As we ran, arm in arm, from the burning crater
The Captain’s screams echo:
“You fucking faggots ain’t seen the last of me yet
I’ll have the last laugh, you cunts, soon you’ll see
Each day you wake, and each night you sleep
I’ll be tight in your chest, burning! Burning!”
But we kept running, turned our backs on our hell
With wine in our hearts and the saviours of you!
