[Chorus]
Poor little fish, swimming in the water
Hide behind the cottails of your father
I've been alone so long I thought I'd never last
Stuck up on a shelf like an old dusty hat

But then you came along
You put me on that throne
Up into the sky
Thought I saw Nick Cave down at the laundromat

You put your hand in my hand and that was that
Your perfume on my sleeve
You lit my life like a Christmas tree
Up into the sky

[Chorus]

You know a cold, cold heart sleeps awful well
While the maids vacuum the hall outside my cheap hotel room
Then the shit came down
Exploded to the ground
Up into the sky

[Chorus]

Where you are is who you are
When you're sleeping
Where you are is who you are
When you're sleeping

[Repeat Chorus]
