Shake The Corpse


See you in dreamland
Where the pandas kiss and
I control the sand
Where our house is big and full of
Ice cream vans
See you in dreamland

Where we dive through tiles and
Mustn't touch the flags
I'll see you ignoring me
Through the window
As the light swings
I shake the corpse

Every room's the same
All the doors are cupboards
I've only me to blame
Stop staring at me
Standing next to no-one
Holding onto nothing
I shake the corpse

See you in dreamland
Where the Ferris wheel stands
Shining in the sun
Where the carpets hang
When the walls come down
And the rain falls through us

Where the big fat king rides the
Tiny train
And he's telling everyone
He sees you ignoring me
Through the window
As the ice breaks
I shake the corpse

What about the boat
Why does it keep spinning round me
What about this river
Why is it so beautiful
Somebody is calling me
Through the window as the ice breaks
I shake the corpse

If you're searching for love
Other things just crawl away
I'll never know trust

As the ice breaks I shake the corpse
I see you ignoring me
Through the window
As the ice breaks I shake the corpse
I see you ignoring me
Through the window
As the ice breaks I shake the corpse
