Beautiful South – Should've Kept My Eyes Shut lyrics

I should've kept my eyes shut
But I had to go amd peep
But when you saw what I saw
Well, it's hard just to roll back to sleep
I would've kept my eyes shut
But I thought I heard you scream
And l've a penchant for violence
You don't seem to find in a dream
The scene a little clearer
My father with a rope
And in the cage, centre-stage
It's mother who's destined to choke
And she choke and we choke
On the words that we wish we'd not spoke
Just when you felt you had someone to trust
Out comes the man with the dagger and cloak
I should've read the novels
Believed every word
But the stories they wrote
Were so different to ones that I'd heard
I should 've kept my eyes shut
My mouth should've closed
But the mixture of vomit and blood
Just crept up through my nose
It became a little clearer
As soon as I awoke
My father stands with rope in hand
A screaming mother kneels in hope
And she hope and we hope
That me words that she said won't provoke
A smile is removed and a petal is crushed
What once was a laugh has turned into a joke
You should've kept your mouth shut
