Here again, losing something
Running red, run towards nothing
Shake me up, make me shiver
Wake me up, make me quiver

Run your tongue but run in straight lines
Feel the sun burn through your eyes
Now everyone come to gather
Tales are spun, we’ll spin till we’re dizzy
I could enjoy this, run through your forest
Undone in chorus, try to untie my tangled mind
The shakeup
Shake shake shake

She said this life is just a lie
Words rushed, passed me by
Cause once again I hear it said
How she loves me
Whisper how she loves me

Why are you leaving?
Face flushed, chest heaving
What was the meaning?
If words are empty as your eyes
I should have seen this, blinded by weakness
Touch taste and sweetness have played their part and worn me down

This waking life is just a lie
But you know this more than I
You claim a sin to touch your skin
So why did you touch me?
And lie
Shake shake shake
