The Food It Wants

from by Alejandro Keswick



Don’t ask the body in the basement
What it’d like to eat
I don’t think it’d be impressed with
Your culinary expertise

The food it wants is indescribable
Much like the way I feel about you
The food it wants is undesirable
Much like the thought of being without you

It orders off an ancient menu
Written in archaic glowing runes
It’s waited an eternity for service
And would appreciate it soon

It speaks in an unknown language
Although you understand the words
It has certain dietary restrictions
It would be grateful if you heard

It doesn’t want filet mignon
Or veal or eggplant parmesan
It only wants the kind of things
I think you’re unprepared to feed

The food it wants is unimaginable
Much like the thought of spending any more of our nights alone
The food it wants isn’t very good
Much like the ending to this song
