My Pleasure is the eighth song on the album Silent So Long by Emigrate.

Background

  • In a track-by-track video series, Richard commented this about the song:[2]

This is the oldest song on the album. It was born out of a sewer in New York. The East Village to be exact. You can hear it too - that dirty mix of rock and punk with balls-out vocals that stake their claim.
That's what you do in New York: stake your claim.

Lyrics

Album version

To all of the fallen
To all you'll always be
Victims of somebody's heart
Nothing to kings and queens

Justification for what we never know
Walls come down
And men still drown
In dreams so hard to hold

I made you my treasure
And died for your pleasure
So just for good measure
Get down
And know me from your knees

Never surrender
Never let them take
All I got and all I want
And all I have at stake

Incineration, no god and no king
Listen now
I'll show you how
Set fire to everything

I made you my treasure
And died for your pleasure
So just for good measure
Get down

I made you my treasure
And died for your pleasure
So just for good measure
Get down
And know me from your knees

To all of the fallen
To all you'll always be
Victims of somebody's heart
Nothing to kings and queens

Alienation from what we called a home
But with this pact
We will attack
And burn the night alone

I made you my treasure
And died for your pleasure
So just for good measure
Get down

I made you my treasure
And died for your pleasure
So just for good measure
Get down
And know me from your knees
