THE JEALOUS SOUND - "The Gift Horse"

Dear misunderstood,
When you fight back does it feel good?
Did you manage to forget
'Cause you tried the tourniquet?
Forgive me if I'm gushing

You have no currency to pay,
You have no influence to sway,
Is there nothing that will steer you from this course?

I force your hand to write,
List what you left behind,
Did I force your hand to move like mine?
Will the damage be too much?
Did you ever get enough?
Does the damage make you dangerous?

No currency to pay,
You have no influence to sway,
Is there nothing that will steer you from this course?
And dear, I fear you've killed the gift horse,
Should we all fall to our knees for you?

There's no detail that you sweat,
There's no gold in the sunset,
You're nothing if not fortunate

No currency to pay,
You have no influence to sway,
Is there nothing that will steer you from this course?
And dear, I fear you've killed the gift horse,
Should we all fall to our knees?
Is it everything you want?
Is it everything you need?
It's more than you can stand,
We finally agreed

Dear misunderstood,
Can you fight back?
Does it feel good?
Should we all fall to our knees? (All fall to our knees),
Is it everything you want?
Is it everything you need?
Should we all fall to our knees? (All fall to our knees),
Was it more than you could stand
When we finally agreed?

You have no currency to pay,
You have no influence to sway
And everything you had,
You just gave it all away
Should we all fall to our knees (all fall to our knees, all fall to our knees)
For you?
