lyrics

open the blinds
look back outside
an aperture opens wide to see out in the dark
woe oh
sign me up
sign me up
an open chest
with checkers and chess
caught under your bed
laying awake at the thought
saw the shades drawn
saw the sun begin to come out
woe ho
sign me up
sign me up
woe ho
sign me up
sign me up
woe ho
sign me up
sign me up
saw what work brings
saw how love stings the way out
saw the whole world
wasted on your drink
saw what life's like
with the bottom pulled out
saw my feet sink
saw fit to see my way out
woe ho
sign me up
sign me up
saw the whole world
never really measured up
saw what life's like
with my chin kept up
saw my feet sink
saw borage float again in my gin
woe ho
sign me up
sign me up
woe ho
write me down
write me down
