lyrics

Chorus

I got work to do girl/
For us to work it through girl/
But that's just labor/
I can't savor/

Verse One

Said I'm sorry I annoy you/
You know you should have been a lawyer/
The way you judge, jury and execute me/
Details of my past flaws/
Are drawn like cards within your laws/
Any dispute seems to be mutiny/

See I apologize for what I am obliged to do/
In this gauntlet you call proof of love (Hay)/
I'll gladly gladiat you just to entertain you/
But when the blood is drawn the love is gone/
Sacrifice I won't, no crown of thorns/
And you want new heights to your occasions/

Chorus

I got work to do girl/
For us to work it through girl/
But that's just labor/
I can't savor/

Verse Two

Poetry in motion/
Captivated by two hearts/
That don't love in sync anymore/
So you question my intentions/
When there's no need for suspicion/
So what else is left to prove to you/

See there's no need to maintain what is no longer there/
I might as well let you have your way/
Resistance is futile in this situation/
If I don't fight I don't care if I do it's an affair/
Surely you want me to suffer/

Consequence is of no consequence for me anymore/

Chorus

I got work to do girl/
For us to work it through girl/
But that's just labor/
I can't savor/
