about

I wrote a movie that was never finished, and it was a supernatural dance movie, and I made the music for this song for a particularly cool sequence which was in fact a dance number that happened in a dream.

When I decided to put it on the album, I started writing lyrics for it, and just ran with it. It is full of some of the best and worst wordplay that I may ever write, and actually (hopefully) a pretty good groove.

lyrics

i take comfort and i take heart
in the warmth of bed and cover of dark

i take comfort and i take heart
in tight shut eyes that keep things dark

i take comfort in my own heart
and the warmth of blood in the cool of dark

i take comfort in my own heart’s
persistent beating in the dark

persistent beating in the dark
persistent beating in the dark

persistent beating in the dark

gonna slip into dreamtime
where everything is just fine
gonna shuffle my dream feet
to the sound of my heart beat

come on get lucid, get down, get loose
when you’re in dreamtime, y’ain’t got nothing to lose

come on get lucid, get down, get loose
when you’re in dreamtime, y’ain’t got nothing to lose

so boogie down, boogie up, boogie every which way
and if you sleep in you can boogie through the night and boogie into the day

meanwhile behind your eyelids, your eyes are dancing to and froe
a rapid movement, iris jig, pupil dosey-doe

slow slow quick quick quick slow
quick quick quick quick quick slow

turn down your covers, climb into bed and turn out the light
gotta get into dreamtime, so you better sleep tight
get down while you lie down, toss and turn all night
when you do the dreamtime boogie, everything is alright

come on get lucid, get down, get loose
when you’re in dreamtime, y’ain’t got nothing to lose

come on get lucid, get down, get loose
do the dreamtime boogie, shake your dream caboose
