​Self-Abuse

This song is by The Grapes of Wrath and appears on the album September Bowl Of Green (1986).

He works all day
Brings home the bacon
He hasn't got the time for makin' her
Feel how she wants to feel

She works all day
??? Falls
Reality comes from the TV screen
Where passion's not a dream

Through every household
And every kitchen
As every housewife
Brings to a boil
Another night of self-abuse

Occasions come
Occasions pass you
Those special days lose their significance
As lovers lose romance

No looks of love
No words of passion
They pass away
With every passing day
As marriage runs its course

Through every household
And every kitchen
As every housewife
Brings to a boil
Another night of self-abuse
