You should've got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye

You should've got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye
You should've got out of the red
In the red you're better off dead
Deader than the red dead sea
Promise it to me
Promise me the sea

You should've got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye
You should've got out of the red
In the red you're better off dead
Deader than the red dead sea
Promise it to me
Promise me the sea

People all the people with big bellies banging bigger drums
They beat down on you they beat the pulse into your shoes
Shoes that are made for walking you to lands and other seas
See those seas oh see those seas that you've seen on the big screen

You should've got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye
You should've got out of the red
In the red you're better off dead
Deader than the red dead sea
Promise it to me
Promise me the sea

Sad hellos and mad high lows
Now I know not nobody knows
Sad hellos and mad high lows
Now I know not nobody knows
Where do we go?
Oh where do we go?

People all the people with big bellies banging bigger drums
They beat down on you they beat the pulse into your shoes
Shoes that are made for walking you to lands and other seas
See those seas oh see those seas that you've seen on the big screen

People all the people with big bellies banging bigger drums
They beat down on you they beat the pulse into your shoes
Shoes that are made for walking you to lands and other seas
See those seas oh see those seas that you've seen on the big screen

    General CommentLovely folky celtic sound here, but I have to say the words are like notes which fit - not quite as meaning-free a vocalisation as the Elizabeth Fraser's Cocteau Twins warblings, but try as I might I can't discern an actual message in here, apart from the meta one which says enjoy the words which flow together.
