Electric Blanket

lyrics

WHEN YOU ARE SLEEPING
YOU GIVE OFF WHITE HEAT
YOU'RE OFF THE ROADMAP
YOU'RE ON THE DOWNBEAT
YOU BLEW THE FUSES
FOR EVERY LIGHT ON THE BLOCK

AND YOU FEEL LIKE AN ELECTRIC BLANKET
YOU FEEL LIKE AN ELECTRIC BLANKET
I WILL WRAP MYSELF IN YOU
AND WAIT FOR THE SHOCK

AND WHEN YOU'RE WAKING
THE BEDSPRINGS RUMBLE
YOUR FACE COULD MAKE AN
EMPIRE CRUMBLE
YOUR EYELIDS FLUTTER
AND SOMEWHERE IT CAUSES A STORM

AND YOU FEEL LIKE AN ELECTRIC BLANKET
YOU FEEL LIKE AN ELECTRIC BLANKET
I'LL BE TIED UP IN BARE WIRE
TO KEEP MYSELF WARM

OH, MAYBE ONE OF THESE DAYS
IT'S GONNA BE TOO EASY TO LET YOU GO
THERE'LL BE TOO MUCH STATIC AND THE AIR'LL BE DRY
OH MAYBE ONE OF THESE DAYS
IT'S GONNA BE TOO HARD TO TELL
IF I'M OVER IT OR I'M OVERCHARGED
OR OUT OF MY MY MY MY MY

MY GUT KNOWS ONE WORD
AND THAT WORD'S "HUNGRY"
MY BRAIN IS NERVOUS
ELECTRICITY
THE BELL IS RINGING
AND IT'S ROUND TWELVE OF THE FIGHT

AND YOU FEEL LIKE AN ELECTRIC BLANKET
YOU FEEL LIKE AN ELECTRIC BLANKET
JUST ONE JOLT OF YOU AND I
GO OUT LIKE A LIGHT
