Violent Arms

You shiver as he walks in, you serve dinner, and he starts drinking

The old routine, you know so well

He’s silent, he almost smiles, the madness, hidden so well inside

Until the liquor, lets it out
And he will torment you all day long, and in the night

You will lie down in his violent arms, cause he’s the one you loveHe’ll curse you, he’ll call you names, don’t argue, don’t provoke him

You’re better off, just keeping still

His violence, it’s all he’s got, his curses, only way he knows

To tell you how, you make him feel

And he will torment you all day long, and in the night

You will lie down in his violent arms, cause he’s the one you loveYou know how he gets, how he hits you where it hurts, with force or with words

You’re trapped in this house, if you ever try to leave, he’ll tear you apart

Cyanide, mixed into the gin, he’ll swallow it all

He’ll realise, as the poison takes a hold, and he falls to the floor

Now no matter how small the cell you’ll still be free
