I can act like a dog
If I adore my wife
Read the paper at breakfast
At least of drop of Red Stripe

Think of Sophie and the single matrimonial bed
Everything will be forgiven when I'm dead

I can laugh like a fool
When nothing is funny
Make you clean my kitchen
When the weather is sunny
I can pick up an apple
Eat a jar of honey (hoooooooneyyyy)
Drink and gamble
Lose our household money (hoooooneyyy)

Punch your brother in the head
Everything will be forgiven when I'm dead

You just gotta be honest
I just gotta be mean
In the end
The truth will set us free
In the end
The truth will set us free

Man is naturally mean
Man is just a machine
There's nothing to hide
Or we'll decede

You just gotta be honest
I just gotta be mean
In the end
The truth will set us free
In the end
The truth will set us free
The truth will set us free

    General CommentSeems that "Divine Right" means divorce. That being divorce is a "right" that's divine, which is quite not true since most religions deem divorce as heathen. Contradictory wordplay, etc.

    The lyrics seem to be talking about a failed marriage. Maybe not exactly failed, just crappy. The speaker constantly tells what he puts into the marriage "I can act like a dog if I adore my wife", "I can laugh like a fool", etc. But then he expresses things that contradict that he does care about the marriage "Make you clean the kitchen when the weather is sunny", "Drink and Gamble", etc.

    Then he says "You just gotta be honest", which is the only thing he really does say about the wife. I'm guessing this song came from real life experiences, just because of that line. Anyway, then he blames himself "I just gotta be mean", probably implying that it might of been his job to keep his wife in check. However, later he says "Man is naturally mean" which might imply he maybe was mean to keep his wife in check and feels guiltly about it. Then he again makes a reference to being honest when he says "There's nothing to hide or we'll decede" so he's blaming the wife again because truth is the backbone of marriage and he justifies his actions because that's just how man is "Man is just a machine". Though, the speaker is probably not intentionally putting the blame on anyone, just telling the truth on how it is.

    "In the end the truth will set us free", truth being that the marriage isn't working out and it's time for a divorce which will liberate them.
