Steemit Open Mic Week 98: "Men" (The Dodos Cover) by @k0wsk1

in #openmic3 years ago


What's up party people! I'm late to the party once again this week, but better late than never, right? This song is very close to my heart, the lyrics in particular. I hope you enjoy this entry in the Open Mic contest - a cover of "Men" by The Dodos:

Original Track:

Lyrics:

This is the sign I used to wear,
This is the line. It says I care.
I found a reason,
I found a tear
Last year.

I am a boy, you want a man.
I am indifferent, you want a plan.
I'm getting out,
I'm getting there
Next year.

We are in love,
We are at war.
I feed myself,
You feed the poor.
I write the fiction,
You write the lore.
These are addictions,
I've seen before.
And if I get out,
I won't be saved.
You are my keeper,
I am your slave.
You're in my thoughts,
You're in my way.
Keep all the weakers,
Bury the brave.

This is a game, you're involved.
I am the player, you have control.
There is an ante,
There is a toll
Buy in.

I want a space, you want a home.
You need to have it, you need to own.
Let's build a flower,
Let's watch it grow
And die.

We are in love,
We are at war.
I feed myself,
You feed the poor.
I write the fiction,
You write the lore.
These are addictions,
I've seen before.
And if I get out,
I won't be saved.
You are my keeper,
I am your slave.
You're in my thoughts,
You're in my way.
Keep all the weakers,
Bury the brave.
