nivixious This song gets in my head and won’t leave which is fine because I like uninvited song guests like this one.

Carsten Pieper Great team, great song (with a grave subject). Another no-brainer for any decent AFP-fan...

Sven B. Schreiber A tragic and nightmarish topic, unfortunately not a rarity, brilliantly staged by Amanda Palmer, Jasmine Power, and Matt Nicholson. My first reaction was just plain speechlessness.

Katt Perfect. Lyrically, vocally and politically accurate. Complex, layered, open to interpretation and yet sharply, pointedly, unmistakably clear. Beautifully done and painfully real. Thank you for your work.

Gavin Hellyer The backlash against this guy couldn't be in better hands.

c4c1e5c5 Only child of a single mom, wife, three daughters, two grand-daughters, I'm used to women being in charge. And it pisses me off when they're not given the respect they're due. Plus, I've never in my life heard a song like this and I like it.

lyrics

amanda:
your seven hundredth bedroom
the waiter brings the bill
you came here dressed for battle
you knew damn well.

the sharpening of axes
the fat man rings a bell…

jasmine:
don’t touch me
i’m not here to help

amanda:
he’ll smother what he captures…

jasmine: move over

amanda:
you know damn well.

every door behind you closing…

jasmine:
you’re a very lucky girl…

amanda:
every velvet rope that opens…

jasmine:
every time the robe unfurls.

amanda:
you came here with a wish-list…

jasmine:
move over

amanda:
you came with bows and bells…

jasmine:
i’m not here to have

amanda:
you came here armed for action…
you knew the drill.

jasmine:
move over before i shelve myself
i’m not here to help you.

amanda:
every man behind the curtain

jasmine:
jerking knobs and smoking guns

amanda & jasmine:
shut your eyes pay no attention
just keep calm and carry on

black or blue, you choose
you’re free to be inbetween
play or lose
you say
it’s not what you meant to mean
black or blue
you mean
what? you’ve got to be kidding.
just turn me over

jasmine:
fast
and
let’s get this over with
let’s get this over with

amanda:
let’s get this over with

jasmine:
let’s get this over with.

amanda:
you crouch down in the bathroom…

jasmine: our time is at a loss

amanda:
the mirror makes you sick…

jasmine:
won’t have you in me

amanda:
you hear him channel surfing…

jasmine:
won’t have you near me…not at any cost

amanda:
you knew this script.

jasmine:
run now, girl, run.

amanda:
your shirt is on the table…

jasmine:
run now girl, toss back the covers…lay your buttons on the ground

amanda:
your skirt is on the floor…

jasmine:
i dare you not to lay back down, your fetish on the floor

amanda: you did what anybody would…

jasmine:
bless me with the strategy to chip away your smell
walk
the nightmare out the door

amanda:
every version has two endings

jasmine:
every time the penny drops

amanda & jasmine:
open casket, open casting
this is where the story stops

jasmine:
i storm out through the hallway
i leave the scars inside
you won’t portray my picture
this film is mine

amanda:
every door that closes opens

jasmine:
you may cut this lucky girl

amanda
say you’ve got
a lot of nerve
walking in here on your own
so come and get it
you deserve it
everybody wants to rule the world

jasmine:
say you want me
say you’ll haunt me
say you’re angry
say you’re honest
say you’re honest
say you’re sorry
say you’re sorry

amanda & jasmine:
black or blue
you choose
you’re free to be in between
play or lose
you say
it’s still not what you meant to mean
black or blue
you mean
what?
you can’t be serious
don’t you dare forget

jasmine:
that i’m the one writing this
i’m the one writing this

amanda:
and this never happened.

jasmine:
i’m the one writing this.

amanda:
this never happened.

jasmine:
i’m the one writing this.
