Domestic Bliss Lyrics

I see the bruise, I see the truth
I see what he's been doin' to you
Blood on the shoes, what's his excuse?
He say he doin' some new kung fu
You always use his bullshit excuse
But I see what he's been doin' to you

Why'd you put up with that shit?
Why'd you go back for that kiss?
Maybe it tastes like him
When you got tears in your lips
Why'd you put up with that shit?
Why don't we pack and leave this?
Why do you smile when he cries?
Why do you cry when he wins?

Fight for me
We can leave, I'm beggin'
Please, on my, on my knees
Go to Hawaii
Fight for me
Said we can leave, I'm beggin'
Please, on my, on my knees
Hawa-hawaii

You got balloons
New flowers too
Last one's dyin' in your bedroom
He's squeezin' you
Blame-blaming you
Mama just usin' her red perfume

Domestic bliss
I know how bad you wanted it

Why'd you put up with that shit?
Why'd you go back for that kiss?
Maybe it tastes like him
When you got tears in your lips
Why'd you put up with that shit?
Why don't we pack and leave this?
Why do you smile when he cries?
Why do you cry when he wins?

Fight for me
We can leave, I'm beggin'
Please, on my, on my knees
Go to Hawaii
Fight for me
Said we can leave, I'm beggin'
Please, on my, on my knees
Hawa-hawaii

My God, I'll be right in
A trickle of lighting
I knew before I heard
I felt in my skin
My God, I'll be right in
A trickle of lighting
I knew before I heard
I felt in my skin

Fight for me
We can leave, I'm beggin'
Please, on my, on my knees
Go to Hawaii
Fight for me
Said we can leave, I'm beggin'
Please, on my, on my knees
Hawa-hawaii

What is the Meaning of Domestic Bliss?

In a haunting melody wrapped in tropical reverie, "Domestic Bliss" unveils the harrowing reality of an abusive relationship, masked under the guise of an idyllic existence. The lyrics poignantly capture the protagonist's desperate plea to a loved one suffering in silence, urging them to recognize the facade and escape their tormentor's clutches. Through vivid imagery and emotional pleas, the song challenges the listener to confront the uncomfortable truth that sometimes, behind closed doors, what seems like paradise is actually a prison. With each verse, it beckons for liberation from the chains of faux happiness towards a genuine safe haven—perhaps as distant and dreamy as Hawaii.
