Lyrics Eat Men Eat – black midi

It’s always here
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 d’you want to know?”

“One more night in Absalom
Help yourselves men to whiskey, onions, and chilli!
Eat men, eat! Eat men, eat! Eat men, eat!”

Company A wake with a start
Stomachs open, burning hearts
With drills and lines this red liquid mined
Captain bottles Rennie’s red wine
Remember why we’re here
“Don’t touch Rio Tinto’s bottom line”

Three long nights in those 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
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 camped in your chests, burning! Burning!”
But we kept running, turned our backs on old hell
With wine in our hearts, hailed as saviours of new!
