Slavedriver take me home, I need a master
I'll beg for mercy and you'll whip me faster
Some boys want freedom, and they have to wonder
I only need four walls, my heart grows fonder
I'll take the weight off any of your shoulders

There are so many ways to please your lover
I speak when spoken to, I sweep the ashes
I get my sweet reward of forty lashes
I'll take the weight off any of your shoulders
You know, you know

You can tie my hands behind my back
I will not ask you to retract
I will not tell you not to stop, oh

Feeling in my mind I can't describe
Can't define I only know
That I want more, more

I'll take the whip, you take the reins

    General Commentsimply masochism. Awesomely worded and very cool voice and metaphor for this song. No one can describe why it really is that they continue to want more weight, more pain, more complications in their life. This person is content with just being where he is in life, not wandering to find something more, he knows he wants confinement and likes getting what he expects. Nothing more, nothing less.

    General Commenti saw them play in providence, ri and before they played this song johnathan said, "jenny wrote this song for me for valentine's day 2009." whether it's true or not, it's hot as hell.
