The Jezabels – Hurt Me

For the lack of a better word: amazing. 

Oh my love is that a vulture?
Tell me it’s a vulture
Standing beside you
Oh, do you see your own face in his eyes
Do you see him like I do?

It used to be that when you said you believed it
I would believe it too
It used to be that when you said you believed it
I’d wanna follow you

But never where the dogs bark, never where the dogs bark

And I remember, praying at the dinner table
For you to come around
Maybe pat me on the back when your able

I’ve a dream of you with half a face
And you take me to rooftop
And skin me, come on, Abel
Are you going to skin me?

And use it as a mask to keep you in the dark
When the shadow of the moon won’t do.

Cause I knew, the moon is but a pearl
Stolen from your mother’s bedside
The day you came into the world

Still now I can hear the dogs bark
I can hear the dogs bark
And I remember, praying at the dinner table
For you to come around
Maybe pat me on the back when your able
Whole cities light up
But nothing can compare to you, baby
So I stay waiting, laying on the dinner table
Waiting for you to hurt me

Come on, Abel
Hurt me, hurt me, hurt me
Coming down to the world

Hurt me, come on, Abel
Cut me, cut me
Serve Me round the table

And now, it’s laying on the table
Waiting for you on the table
To carve it up and watch the splay go across the river bed

And sweet aromas fill the halls
From all the bodies that came before
And that’s the body
I swear that’s the body

I remember I was laying on the dinner table
And when you came around
You said you’ll be doing fine, when you’re able

Oh, whole cities light up
But nothing can compare to you, baby
So I stay waiting
Laying on the dinner table
Woohh, hurt me, hurt me, hurt me
Woohh, cut me, cut me, serve me
Wooohhhooohhh
Wooohhhooohhh

And The Jezabels live here online. 

A four-piece musical group from Sydney, The Jezabels have already released three EPs and one full length-album as of 2011, and all were engineered and prodder Lachlan Mitchell. Their sounds are a blend of alternative rock, indie rock, and disco pop, but they’ve also summarized their music genre well with “intensindie.” Despite their rather uncommon intensity, their music drew my attention the moment I heard “Easy To Love.” Also, in spite of the ability to understand their lyrics 100%, I am still loving the soul, the mysteriousness, and the varied ways of expression, with The Jezabels’ unique blend of rhythm, voice, and musical interpretation. Definitely support them with their latest album Prisoner!
