When You Sleep

When You Sleep

Cake

When you sleep.... where do your fingers go?
what do your fingers know?
what do your fingers show?
where do your fingers go... yea

when you sleep... do they tremble..on the edge.. of the bed
or do you fold them... neatly.. by your head
do they clench like claws against your own skin
when youre living your day all over again

When you sleep.... where do your fingers go?
what do your fingers know?
what do your fingers show?
where do your fingers go... yea

when you sleep... do they tremble..on the edge.. of the bed
or do you fold them... neatly.. by your head
do they clench like claws against your own skin
when youre living your day all over again

do they play guitar in a latin bar
are they strangers or lovers, do they drive your car?
are they swimming submissivly, sex acts of life
or just cutting through jell-o with a very sharp knife
now Zeus was a womanizer
always on the lake
but Hera usually punished her
that Zeus was one to take

when you sleeeeeeeeeeeeep
where do your fingers go?

Are they pulling out weeds form the dusty soil
are they never rewarded fruits of the toil
are they scratching their nails on the chalk boards of death
only seeking attention when everyone in the room has left

When you sleep.... where do your fingers go?
what do your fingers know?
what do your fingers show?
where do your fingers go... yea

when you sleep... do they tremble..on the edge.. of the bed
or do you fold them... neatly.. by your head
