Metric the fatal gift lyrics



Haven’t we made
Enough for a living wage
We accept the fatal gift
A soup stone for our stove
And a blindfold for our tears

Paying for a living wage
Know it’s a deceptive deal
We accept the fatal gift
They hover over where we live

Ooh they give it to me
Ooh they give it to me

The things you own
They own you
All the things you own
They own you ooh

They give it to me
Ooh they give it to me

The things you own
They own you
All the things you own
They own you ooh
Ooh

Haven’t we saved
Enough to go away
Enough to reach the coast

Why do we stay
Paying for a living wage
I know it’s a deceptive deal
We accept the fatal gift
They hover over where we live

Ooh they give it to me
Ooh they give it to me

The things you own
They own you
All the things you own
They own you ooh

They give it to me
Ooh they give it to me

The things you own
They own you
All the things you own
They own you ooh
Ooh

Ooh they give it to me
Ooh they give it to me

The things you own
They own you
All the things you own
They own you ooh

They give it to me
Ooh they give it to me

The things you own
They own you
All the things you own
They own you ooh
Ooh ooh

Why do we stay [x3]
