the room lyrics – good rats

verse: and in his eyes there was a room, like any other room
there was a table, free of cups and trays
surrounded by six chairs of gold with silver cloth

a list that hung against the giant wooden door
and there were men, he’d seen before
none of them looked like their paintings
that hung from the ceilings or walls

hook: and they were nude, like their statues
and their eyes never blinked
and they shook their hands as he began to speak

verse: and when he spoke there was a soung like nothing he had heard
they were the voices of all he’d put to death
he tried to tell them all the good things he had done

distorted words were locked somewhere behind his tongue
they watched him sweat, wiping his head
and then the threw up the slime that had started to climb
and they rose

(repeat hook)

yeah!

(instrumental bridge)

(repeat hook) (modified): and they were nude (oh, yes!)
and their eyes never blinked
and they shook their hands as he began to speak
