lyrics

No i won't sleep! No i won't i didn't want to!
No i won't!
No i won't i didn't want to!
No i won't sleep! No i won't i didn't want to!

David Attenborough's on the TV! Why do I have to? I'm big now!
You fucking tyrants I'm not even tired!

Your face was rough,
your breath smelt of wine
You sang the old songs
and everything was fine
Marianina turned the sailors into foam
and I'd be waking up
before my mind had time to roam

Look look look lookatme
i'm hanging
upside down!
Shit is hilarious this way
and your smile is a distracted frown
Fuck it
ima do a backflip–check this out!
Pleeease mum,
you know nothing's any fun unless you're watching.

Your face was rough,
your breath smelt of wine
You sang the old songs
and everything was fine
Marianina turned the sailors into foam
and I'd be waking up
before my mind had time to roam

Don't leave the cupboard door open or the nightmares float out into my head!
i wish i could tell you but i'm too brave

i think i'm safe inside this dome of moving dots in the dark
i just wish you were here

Your face was rough,
your breath smelt of wine
You sang the old songs
and everything was fine
Marianina turned the sailors into foam
and I'd be waking up
before my mind had time to roam
