Lyrics


Spider: Bit of nostalgia for the old folks!
Gilly: I'm advocating dark clothes
Girl #1: If I'm not alone . . . How long have I been asleep?
Gilly: As long as I have
Girl #2: Did you ever live in a drum?
Girl #1: No
Girl #2: Well then you aren't me
Gilly: I only dreamt I lived in a drum. Ever since it got dark. Dreaming is hard
Girl #1: Yea, but with nothing over your head?
Gilly: No, just light, over my head. And underneath too
Girl #1: I don't think I could take it without anything over my head
Girl #2: Mm-mmh, I couldn't either
Girl #1: Well why don't you go out and see what's out there?
Gilly: Well . . . I don't know if that's what's out there
Girl #2: Now that's a thought
Gilly: Yes . . .
Girl #2: If you'd like . . .
Gilly: But still you can say darker and darker. I don't know what the outside of this thing looks like at all
John: I do. It's dark and murky
Spider: How do you get your . . . your water so dark?
John: 'Cause I'm paranoid. I'm very paranoid. And the water in my washing machine turns dark out of sympathy
Spider: Out of sympathy?
John: Yes
Spider: Um . . . where can I get that?
John: At your local drugstore
Spider: How much?
