Song of the Day: Rend It – Fugazi

Happy love day everybody! I know you may think that those of us here at SWR are heartless bastards but…well I don’t know how to finish that¬†sentence¬†without lying. Today’s song of the day has been chosen especially for this cardboard holiday! Rend It by Fugazi, a song about perversion and how good intentions (or maybe submission) can spiral out of control. I think.

why don’t you come to my house?
why don’t you drag me right out?
past all the shit that I said, I’m saying
why don’t you cut up my mouth?

and I don’t care what you use
just don’t ask me to choose
I forced a field to allow you
that’s not so easy to do

I said I said what I said
I want you to help me
surrender, rend it, it’s yours
out in the open we’re wide open
surrender, rend it, it’s yours
locked in a body in love with the process of…
surrender, rend it, it’s yours
out in the open we’re wide open

night light comes into my room
some shade of bruise-colored blue
moves through my mind like a chemical
imbalance on schedule

my tasting face to the floor
passive abject I’m sure
I lick my lips when I need it
don’t want to lick them no more

I said I said what I said
I want you to help me
surrender, rend it, it’s yours
out in the open we’re wide open
surrender, rend it, it’s yours
locked in a body in love with the process of…
surrender, rend it, it’s yours
out in the open we’re wide open

surrender, rend it, it’s yours!

my model love song, my love song, my love song
my model love song, my love song, my love song
