Slaves – Chokehold

Slaves - Chokehold

I was a side dish​ for her main prey
I did not like this, yeah needless to say
That when she left me I took it badly
I was a right mess, you see I loved her madly
I felt rejected and disrespected
I thought I knew her, I stand corrected
But now I'm lying here clueless as what to say
'Cause now my pillow smells like her hairspray

Chokehold, chokehold (uh uh oh oh oh)
Chokehold, chokehold (uh uh oh oh oh)
So cold, you're so cold (uh uh oh oh oh)
The way you turned on me

I preceded to self-medicate
I was shame-faced and I was full of hate
Two weeks later, that's when I saw her
I was out of breath from treading water
I was embarrassed, all my friends were there
So I pretended that I didn't care
But, honey, inside I was burning
My hands were trembling, my stomach turning

Chokehold, chokehold (uh uh oh oh oh)
Chokehold, chokehold (uh uh oh oh oh)
So cold, you're so cold (uh uh oh oh oh)
The way you turned on me

Why do you wanna hurt me?
Left me out in the rain
Now drunk on a night bus
Meeting with an old flame
Now washing my bedsheets
Hanging them out to dry
Just like you did to me
I guess that this is goodbye, goodbye!

Chokehold, chokehold (uh uh oh oh oh)
Chokehold, chokehold (uh uh oh oh oh)
So cold, you're so cold (uh uh oh oh oh)
The way you turned on me
You got me in a chokehold, chokehold (uh uh oh oh oh)
Chokehold, chokehold (uh uh oh oh oh)
So cold, you're so cold (uh uh oh oh oh)
The way you turned on me
You got me in a chokehold
Chokehold
Chokehold
