Eaten by a shark

Verse 1
Take me for a swim out in the sea
Well head out after dark
And maybe if we're lucky
I'll get eaten by a shark
An we wouldn't have to argue
Bout how I don't buy into

Star signs and parking Angels
Even though we've been waiting for ages
I dont see why anybody should be
Looking out for me

I dont want this to happen again
Maybe I should just fall in
Watch the bubbles rise to the surface
That way I'd be serving a purpose

Verse 2
To see us like this turns my heart to lead
It goes to my head and I consider leaving town
But Gravity is working hard on me
So I just stick around
And make pancakes the way that you showed me
The difference being they're for me only
And if I'm feeling reckless and lonely
I'll dip in my toes, tender and bony.

Coz they can sniff out the smell of a tear drop
From miles around come closer and eaves drop
I can make out the shadows in the dark
And I can't believe my luck

Chorus +
There's a lot of hungry mouths to feed
Ill taste better if you wrap me in seaweed
I'll be happy, I'll be happy indeed

Hey sea creature, it's good to meet ya
I'm here to feed ya, just wanna please ya
Don't tell me you lost your appetite coz
I don't believe ya
Look at me, I'm alive c'mon dance with me
One more time yeah
Dance with me before I change my mind
Before I change my mind

Chorus +
