Fight to the Death

lyrics

A fight to the death? That's all I need

When I can't fight, I'm already on my knees

A cold wind blew my bones away

And now they're gone I'm jelly-legged

Call me sweetheart call me pal

Or make your terms more favourable

Cos when you don't I'm all at sea

And only kisses revive me

I went to the river of words to swim for all the best

But they were trapped within the jaws of all the worst

'Disappointment' threw me a glare while biting into success

Told the profanities to form an infantry

I was in a fight to the death

To free the good words from the bad

I took a step into the icy water

Tried to pick them off one by one

But one by one they took their toll

And dragged me off to their leader

Who said "fighting for the sake of it is wrong"

Don't look down on hate while looking up to love

Don't try to separate what goes hand in hand

One always stands close to the other

If love hated hate then why would it bother?

Call me sweetheart call me pal

Or make your terms more favourable

A different kind of blow rained down on my head today

It should have been fatal but I feel a-ok
