Dead Beat
1st Single from Guide Dog's second album 'Generation Y' being released in 2019 through Hi-Vis Records.


I’m hunched over a toaster,
It’s my turn to make dinner,
Walking on hot coals,
In snow shoes,
Changing channels with my mind.
I’m sleeping with a ghost tonight,
So pick on someone your own size,
How many light bulbs,
To change a dead beat?
I got a sunbeam in my mind.

Oh please don’t forget me,
‘Cos I’ll be a dead beat,
Beating the dead beat.

I hope I turn up this century,
And you cover me up in dead leaves,
Fifteen seconds to comply,
She’s alkaline,
She’s not afraid to die,
So baby won’t you join me,
For some wildlife documentaries,
I’m so horny,
Like a narwhal,
And you’re a octopus on fire.

Oh please don’t forget me,
‘Cos I’ll be a dead beat,
Beating the dead beat.

Beating the dead beat….
