Roses and Bread

The house is getting dirty, she can't face it
The vacuum cleaner's burnt out, lying dead
She knows she'll have to save up to replace it
She wants a life of roses not just bread
And sucking up the dust from crusty carpets
Is never going to give her quite the pleasure
Of thumbing dusty pages at the markets
To clear the cranial cobwebs finding treasure

The organisers write: 

Taking Refuge

It wasn't like this 
When they first shared a kiss
Her heart aches it.
He tells her she's weak
She's a failure, a freak
- And she takes it.

He tells her to say
That all is ok 
So she fakes it.
He shouts in her face
So that she knows her place
- And she takes it.
