lyrics

HOUSECAT

I gave her a back scratch a black attack
And now she’s feeding and feeding
And always deceiving and she’s always wanting more
Never satisfied with simple household chores
When I gave her an inch, she bit off my arm
And when I started to twitch
I realized I got more, so much more
Than I’d ever bargained for

We use to go out on Sundays and have a little fun
She use to wait around the door for my workday to be done
She use to owe it all to me
I was her knight in shining armor
Maybe it’s the cocaine or maybe the pills
Or it’s the side effects of her freewill
That’s got her tied up and tangled in knots
Forcing smiles and getting off

Maybe it’s the drugs or maybe it’s love
Or maybe it’s something that I never really wanted anyway
But that’s okay, she’s my housecat

Just one more is all I ask of you
If you were me you would too
And their faces all look so jaded
Like their souls have been confiscated
And put away in little boxes
Where scientists remove the toxins
And eat up the best parts of the brain
Just to be socially sane

Maybe it’s the drugs or maybe it’s love
Or maybe it’s something that I never really wanted anyway
But that’s okay, she’s my housecat

Maybe it’s the feeling of contempt
Or maybe it’s the feeling of regret
That made me hate the ways
That she couldn’t ever change

Maybe I know I can survive
Her last ditch suicide
And now I know that I was blind
But she was never all that kind
