from by DEAKIN



all my life i have travelled in needs / now i’ve found what i crave / you’ve got to be brave / i know it’s hard when you feel i’m sleeping / friend in rain i’m awake / let’s shake / we’ll shake // and whether you would or you won’t isn’t traced across every word / the place and the smell will instantly place your evident crime / rotten replaced regrown and renamed / a bottomless game / and if you’re unsure just look in his face / you’ll see he’s alright // he’s fine / the same as all man / in time i’ll have to ask him // i just want to see you happy / man i know that you try / your high / always fine / you’ve got to get // and when you’re awake your eyes shine bright / you’re so fine / my pride lifts me up into places so right / and I know on my mark / we’ll trespass again and again it’s all mine / and i’m all fine / i’ll always tear up when i see how you shine / in your unwary nights // you’re fine / i’m rolling over / this time / no run for cover / he’s shaking it
