"Shake" is a song written by Austin Scholl and recorded under his alias ThornBrain. It was released on his second album, Nobody Cares Unless You're Pretty or Dying.


The song is about a person in love with a woman heavily involved in drug use and who fetishizes her mental decay. Unlike most other songs on the album, it is more electronic and inspired by bands such as Suicide and Depeche Mode. The song was originally written for Geizhals as a companion to "I'm Your Victim", a similarly dark and sexual song that includes a pun on the word "tender".


It's on me to work through The chemicals in us While you sit idoling by A trail of venom down your cuss I keep you locked You're so much trouble for the free Soon to be draped in virgin white The only virgin will be me

Shake till you can't anymore Shake till you can't anymore Us alone out on the floor

Oh, she's like a dream Hazy as she goes Oh, she's like a dream Immobile in her throes Oh, she's like a dream Thriving on your fears Oh, she's like a dream Forgotten when your head clears

Do you want to know how people try To so easily define gender Do you want a little tenderness Or do you want your body tender You grip so impassionately Try not to think of you and me You're like a dog's philosophy His thought's a lost ability

Shake till you can't anymore Shake till you can't anymore Be my victim on the floor
