Oh me, oh my, I'm running out of batteries
I'm hanging from the ladder
The tears you cried are only meant to flatter me
That shit don't matter at all, taking the shots as I fall
Watching the wheels that go round and round
Serene in the air 'cause I love you lady

I dream on, ohhh, 'cause that songbird singing
Shout it out for me, shout it out for me, so come on now

One day at a time, I'm hiding from the razor blade
That's hanging in the kitchen
The kids are tired, they drunk up all their lemonade
The bitch keeps bitching and all, taking the shots as I fall
Wait for the wheels to come round and round
Serene in the air 'cause I love you lady

I dream on, ohhh, 'cause that songbird singing
Shout it for me, shout it for me, ohhh
Dream on, ohhh, 'cause it's got no meaning
Shout it for me, shout it for me
She go, la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la
I dream on, ohhh, 'cause that songbird singing
Shout it for me, shout it for me, ohhh
Dream on, ohhh, 'cause it's got no meaning
Shout it for me, shout it for me (come on)
Shout it for me (come on), shout it for me (come on)
Shout it for me (come on), shout it for me (come on)
Shout it for me (come on), shout it for me (come on)
Shout it for me (come on), shout it for me (come on)
Shout it for me (come on), shout it for me

    Correct me if i'm wrong which i probably am but it sounds like it relates to stress and boredom and some other factors of home life after leaving oasis maybe?

    Good song, but as the same as goten and trunks, the only way to fight goku or vegeta face to face equally, was through fusioning... The same here... Beady eye and noel should do the same... To equal other good bands, is fusioning again into oasis... 'cause they'll simply live forever.

    Although i agree that there probably is no meaning behind the entire song, i highly doubt the razor blade reference is about depressioon. Noel admits to having a cocaine issue in the past and has used the lyrics "chained to a mirror and a razor blade" in the past, so i'm going to guess it has something to do with that.

    Noel said in a video documentary about the album that this song is pure nonsense, as in there is no real meaning and it just sounds catchy. Haha
