Lyrics

Shiny Shiny

Write me a list
Of all you own
The things that fill up
Your beautiful home
Hold it in the wind
And let it fly
Now take a my hand
You gonna wave goodbye

Write out a letter
To your old friends
Enemies and lovers
Since way back when
Drop it in the rain
And a watch it bleed
Now take a my hand
You gonna walk with me

Look look shiny shiny
Are these the things you thought you need?
Look look shiny shiny
The magazines - you’ll never read

All the gold
You’ll ever need
Is the corn the hens are
Scratching round your feet
There’s plenty of silver
Flashing in the sea
And diamonds twinkle
Down on you and me

Build me a pyre
Of your hopes and dreams
The should have dones
And the might have beens
Drop the match
And walk away
You know my name,
This is the end of days.

Look look shiny shiny
Are these the things you thought you need?
Look look shiny shiny
Your company stocks -your mortgage deed
