We're getting up with our sleepy heads,
Down here under the stairs,
The lights dehydrated and disfigured,
It's barely able to stare,

I think it'll head up to the sundeck,
Put sunflower seeds in it's hair,

One of these days you will kill me,
Each time you come in here it's such a surprise,
How every contour of every line,
Sinks in with your rhythm and beats with your time,
Why can't we be light on the ceiling,
Can't you see it concertina in between us?
