Wake The Dead
 
i was pulled to this world,
keane-eyes-saucer-wide… with wonder.
let me taste it, eat it,
roll around and be it… the wonder.
oh, my lord, more is more… of wonder.
"how many slaps ‘til she will
watch tv and sit still?"… they wondered.

those catatonic minds surround,
but never move at all.
now, we’re not of their kind, you know.
we never were at all.
oh, i just want to scream and wake the dead.
wake the dead. wake the dead.

i’ll wear red patent boots,
and let you all the news… the wonder.
busta rhymes saved my life.
bela bartok’s the light… of wonder.
oh, my lord, can i get bored?… i wonder.
"unless it’s kept in 4/4,
how can they hit the dance floor?"… they wonder.

those catatonic minds surround,
but never move at all.
now, we’re not of their time, you know.
we never were at all.
oh, i just want to scream and wake the dead.
wake the dead. wake the dead.

{you know, i would just try not to think about it.
i would just do what i had to do.
most of the time, it didn’t even feel like it was me.
it was like watching a movie.
and before i knew it, it was 10 years later.}

when i’m glad, i’m so bad, i strip and dance.
{you know, i would just try not to think about it.}
and when i’m sad i strip and i dance.
{you know, i would just try not to think about it.}
but, when i’m mad, expected to strip and dance,
{ i would just do what i had to do.}
to show my freedom… i dance and strip.

{you know, i would just try not to think about it.
i would just do what i had to do.
most of the time, it didn’t even feel like it was me.
it was like watching a movie.
and before i knew it, it was 10 years later.}

those catatonic minds surround,
but never move at all.
now, we’re not of this time, you know.
we never were at all.
oh, i just want to scream and wake the dead.
wake the dead. wake the dead.
wake the dead.

i was pulled to this world,
keane-eyes-saucer-wide… with wonder.
let me taste it, eat it,
roll around and be it… the wonder.
oh, my lord, oh, my lord, oh, my lord…
