Ravi is a manly man, he’s worked hard to earn a master’s degree from a first world university, marrying out of his league was thereby warranted - But it’s been two months into the marriage and Ravi isn’t getting any. Ravi is a manly man.

lyrics

Screwed ain't the word for the way that I feel.
Its just mercenary, mercenary and so viciously conceived.
It’s delicately poised, smoke and mirrors swelling into noise.
And I’ve no choice , I’ve been marooned in this barbed wire cocoon.

What's a po’ boy to do?

Screwed ain't the word for the way that I feel.
She's intractable, unrelenting, so viciously concealed.
All she ever says to me, is that her silence has been paid for,
by some dowry that I haven't seen, and certainly didn't ask for.
(She) ‘Says her father’s now a broken man, and I won't be dealt a better hand.
But I’m not sure what that means, so we'll just wait it out, in this all consuming silence.

In the barbed wire cocoon.

What's a po’ boy to do?

The novelty has faded.My conscience will be sated
I’m a man, and I am not afraid to take what is owed.
My conscience will be sated. The novelty has faded.
I’m a man, and I am not afraid to take what is owed.
So don't make me take you, love.
Like a hound takes a bitch.
Don’t make me…
No...
