Liner Notes: 

This is a very dark song, written when #22 was murdered by her partner.

The number is now 34 deaths in NSW at the hand of DV. I'm not a victim of it, but I do tend to write lyrics about this topic. Not sure why.

Just last week a woman was murdered by her partner about 2-3 suburbs away. She died of her injuries, he committed suicide in prison. fuckingchickenshit >:(

22 dead women and counting

V1
I died today
Number 22
At the hands of my lover
who thought he was entitled to
control everything I did
and everything I say
and how I made my quid
and how I spent my day

CH
And I died
a glorious death
full of pain and agony
and lots and lots of mess
And I died
a glorious death
complete with broken bones
and a knife in my chest

V2
they all say the same thing
Do lots of finger pointing
And tomorrow number 23 will take my place
They all said it was my fault
He must've been provoked
And tomorrow there will be another victim, another face

CH
And I died
a glorious death
full of pain and agony
and lots and lots of mess
And I died
a glorious death
complete with broken bones
and a knife in my chest

CH to fade
