I sent the kids, I sent the kids away
I want to throw my life away
Show me the chain, wrap it around me
Throw me back in the hole where you found me
Venus in furs

I want the house, I want the house you stole
I want to burn, I want to burn it down
I want it all, I want it all back

Pretty and mean, pretty and mean you were
Peaches and cream boys, I couldn’t trust a word from her
Brutes in hired suits nothing unusual
Dressed to be wed with your eyes like a funeral
Venus in furs

I want the car, I want the Jaguar
I want to drive, drive it into the lake
And now we know we're not above them
We're not above them
We're not above them
Because we are them

Your dinner’s on fire, it’s on fire
And the dog is coming with me
Did you make love in the talent show curse
While I was smiling in the folds of your purse?
Venus in furs

So I give up, have it, it's yours to take
I want to sink into oblivion
I want it all, I want it all gone
I want it all gone


from The Mess We Inherited, released February 1, 2016

Keeping things sparse, fast & loud, 'These Are Our Demands' are a post punk/newwave trio who love Joy Division, Pixies, The Smiths, Nirvana, The Cure, Savages, Interpol etc along with a load of more obscure (or embarrassing) bands. We love a melody you can whistle, but we also love a fuzzbox set to strip paint. We will sweat for you! ... more
