lyrics

I look down and my hand's all bubbling,
Flesh drips, it's off putting and quite troubling,
In a short while there's only bone left,
I flex my fingers, the joints creak and groan,
Next I freak out and scream 'cause my hand's in my face,
It roots about, pulls a tooth out of place,
And taps it on my forehead like "Ha! You're dead!"
Plants it like a seed and the earth bleeds red,
The colour spreads and out of the ground sprouts fingers,
Skeletal limbs pointing to cumulonimbus
Clouds up above that swoop down and shroud the ground like a glove, and the hands hound me,
Shoving me, not lovingly, at the centre,
I see a blood red vortex to enter,
I try and make my way against the tide,
Nice plan, but the hands wave goodbye,

I'm sucked inside,
My heart thuds as the mud packs my eyes,
My mouth's wide in silent scream as I struggle,
But I'm trapped in a dirt tomb's too tight cuddle,
My ears tickle with the sound of miniature giggles,
And the soil surrounding me is alive with wriggles,
Infested with insects it dawns on me with horror,
This creepy cavalcade has entered every orifice!

Oh crap, I'm trapped inside of a nightmare,
There's millipedes within me, giving me a right scare,
I shout and scream out
FOR GOD'S SAKE, STOP!
But I can't wake up,

The bugs in my brain start plugging my veins,
And take control of my limbs, no struggling, shame,
They make me dig deep like a dog for a bone,
Bust through the Earth's crust to another time zone,
I pop out covered in dirt and coal like a minor,
Shocked, 'cause I've dug a hole right to China!
In jest, the insects have a wicked idea,
They make me find a Chinaman and spit in his ear,
He turns around mad, I try to apologise,
But I say "OH ME SO SOLLY!" and pull back on my eyes,
His mouth gapes, his head shakes, but the bugs wont quit,
They make me slap him round the face and say
"CHINA'S SHIT MATE. GET ME SOME NOODLES!"
And the man's face drops,
He gets his camera phone and makes it take my mug shot,
He puts it on the net and sends it out with one click,
Now the whole world thinks I'm a racist prick!

Oh crap, I'm trapped inside of a nightmare,
There's millipedes within me, giving me a right scare,
I shout and scream out
FOR GOD'S SAKE, STOP!
But I can't wake up.
