Shake Your Hand

by The Oyster Murders



shake your hand
meet yourself
on a darker night

don't get down
don't give in
turn off the light

shake your hand
only yourself
keeps you up at night

on a lake
nowhere to stand
if it were sand

you'd sink

Shake your hand. . .

show great strength
but you're still bent
from your crown
lengthways down

it's not a frown
you're upside down
but they won't get it
you don't sweat it

meet yourself
meet yourself
and get up at night
don't get down
don't give up

and you'll be alright

shake your hand. . .

shake it, shake it,
till it feels
shake it, shake it,
till you feel
shake it, shake it,
till you feel
anything at all
