Cats Like Us

Cats Like Us
Written by Peter Gravestock
(Mushroom Music Publishing)

Fell from the pit and into a tangle
My parachute wrapped around both my ankles
No I’m not gonna choke, I’m gonna breathe
I’m gonna pick apart the wicked webs you weave
and float…
through the trees…
tiny spiders…
on the breeze…

I could wreck a hundred ships on the rocks in your head
Did you hear her argument, did you hear what she just said?
“This country has gone to the dogs!
So pull on your finest threads,
Coz cats like us go dancing
Rats like us go dancing
Bats like us go dancing into day!”

“I’ve seen the ministers and they want a fight
I’ve seen the sun ride through in the saddle of the night
I hear her heartbeat as she’s galloping away
Dud-ulun, dud-ulun, dud-ulun, dud-ulun, dud-alay”

“Come on in, come out with us
Get off that window ledge
We need a lot more lovers like you
and you’re no good to us dead
Coz this country has gone to the dogs!
So pull on your finest threads,
Coz cats like us go dancing
Rats like us go dancing
Bats like us go dancing into day!”

Who wants a fight
Who wants a war
Who wants to show them
What a guillotine is for?

One Day I Will Die

One Day I Will Die
Written by Peter Gravestock
(Mushroom Music Publishing)

One day I will die
At the end of my life
Let it run through your mind
One cell at a time
Like shell turns to sand
Let it run through your hands
One grain at a time
One day at a time

You cannot deny
One day I will die
One day I will die
One day I will die

I don’t believe in souls
or UFOs
But if I could return
I’d come back as a ghost
And haunt your house
Move things around
Make noise like an owl
I’ll show you how:
“ooh hoo hoo hoo,
ooh hoo hoo hooooo
ooh hoo ooh hoo ooh,
ooh hoo hoo hoo”
And then you’d know
You have somewhere to go
On the day that you die
One Day I will die

(Chorus)
Raise your hands to the sky
One day I will die
One day I will die
One day I will die

If I don’t believe in Hell
Or Heaven as well
The Abyss looks back - it smiles,
It sings its reply:
“Well it could be at night;
But semantics aside
One day you will die
One day you will die”

One day I will die
One day I will die
One day I will die
One day I will die
One day I will die
One day I will die
One day I will die
One day I will die
One day I will die
ooh hoo hoo hoo,
ooh hoo hoo hooooo
ooh hoo ooh hoo ooh,
ooh hoo hoo hoo
