Under His Eye

Story

Desperate times call for desperate measures. This song is inspired by the final scene in Episode 6, Season 2 of "The Handmaid's Tale", an MGM/Hulu adaptation of the novel by Margaret Atwood.

 

 

Here's a rough solo recording.

Lyrics

I'm laying low, I'm laying low, I'm laying oh so low
I'm laying low, I'm laying low, I'm laying oh so low

Soon it will be my dying day
The time will come for them to pay
For all their crimes against humanity
I've got nothing to lose and I'm not afraid
But I'm biding my time until the moment is right, laying low
I'm laying low, I'm laying low, I'm laying oh so low

Under his eye I pretend to pray
No one could doubt my piety
I lower my head and I obey
No one suspects that I could ever betray
Because I'm laying low, I'm laying low, I'm laying oh so low
I'm just biding my time until the moment is right, laying low
I'm laying low

I'm sorry sisters but there's no other way
Collateral damage is a price we pay
We need to burn it all down to build a better day
We've got nothing to lose, we are the martyr maids
No more laying low, no laying low, no more laying low
No laying low, no laying low, no more laying low
No more laying low

This is my dying day
I will not cower, I will not obey
I will not run and I won't look away
I've got nothing to lose and I'm not afraid (under his eye)

This is your dying day (under his eye)
The time has come for you to pay (under his eye)
For all your crimes against humanity
I've got a bomb up my sleeve and I'm not afraid (I'll lay you low)

I'll lay you low (I'll lay you low)
I'll lay you oh so low (I'll lay you low)
I'll lay you six feet low
I'm going down and you're going down with me
