black midi – Eat Men Eat Lyrics


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 cheese!

Eat men, eat!

Eat men, eat!

Eat men, eat!”

Company A wake with a start

Stomachs open, burning hearts

(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 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 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!
