lyrics

O hell is a rosy-coloured land
under the sea
and if we take a bad turn
you and me
we’ll go there together and plant tangerines
fiery fruit for the devil to eat

Come and dream with me
in a little row boat
we’ll sail until we sink

Rock-a-bye
in a bubble of light
I love all your fingers and toes
love the gristle and grind
of your bones

And if you can’t catch the gingerbread man
come with me
we’ll find him under the sugarplum moon
fast asleep
I’ll eat his fingers
you can devour his feet
no sugar, no honey, no nectar has tasted this sweet

Come and dream with me
in a little row boat
we’ll sail until we sink

Rock-a-bye
in a bubble of light
I love all your fingers and toes
love the gristle and grind
of your bones

O hell is a rosy-coloured land under the sea
