"His Slave" (explicit)
on: August 26, 2017, 00:29:17
She's left you for a guy who may not be who he seems, and you're pretty ticked off about it. Possibly unreasonably so. Whatcha think?

Genre: Psychedelic, progressive rock


His Slave

Unfurls her and unravels her,
Becomes the first time traveller
And tries his best to join the dots about her

Which he could use to try unscrew
The cover on her battery pack
And see inside the circuitry that powers her.

He knows it all and he's become
The master and the very one
Whom she will return to when she's in trouble.

If he is there consistently,
And knows just when to let her be,
He has the power to make her move his rubble.


She is his slave, his slave
His slave, his slave
She's not yours to keep,
To sow, to reap
Anymore 'cause she's
Become the crop of your opponent.

She's not your slave, your slave
Your slave, Your slave
She's now his to keep,
To sow, to reap
From now on 'cause she's
Become the crop of your opponent.


Try to track her and distract her,
See if you can re-attract her
And prove to her that you've become worth the effort.

You might please her and unease her,
She might even let you tease her
Though I doubt that she will ever be your escort.

Don't try to stalk her or small-talk her
Or dare comment on that chalk where
Underneath you're certain you can see some bruising.

She won't believe that she's been cheated
She ignores where she'd been beat; it
Burns you to the core knowing that she is losing.


She is his slave, his slave
His slave, his slave
She's not yours to keep,
To sow, to reap
Anymore 'cause she's
Become the crop of your opponent.

She's not your slave, your slave
Your slave, Your slave
She's now his to keep,
To sow, to reap
From now on 'cause she's
Become the crop of your opponent.


You may just be forced to admit his victory was not bullshit,
You've lost your edge, you've lost your name, you've only got yourself to blame,
You tell yourself she was a bitch, and in this sea there's other fish,
But you know that they're not the same, but tell that man "Nice catch, fair game."

interesting lyrics @LifeIsAMinefield  - "her battery pack" and the circuitry suggest these are robots?
