"I See Spiders When I Close My Eyes" as written by and Peter Hobbs Jonthan Owen....
I've got nothing to worry about,
So I worry about nothing.
I think I've got fleas or some tropical disease
And my spider-sense is tingling.

I've got nothing to panic about,
So I panic about nothing.
I won't buy grapes, I check the 'sell by' dates,
And I only eat fruit out of tins.

I've got the blues,
I've got lifts in my shoes,
And I'm scared of the countryside.
I can't sleep 'cause I see spiders
When I close my eyes.

I've got nothing to be afraid of,
So I'm afraid of nothing.
I've emptied out the cupboard underneath the stairs
Because I think the sky is gonna fall in.

How did I get to be such a
Mess so soon in my life?
I can't sleep 'cause I see spiders
When I close my eyes.

All I ever wanted to be
Was comfortable and kind.
I can't sleep 'cause I see spriders
When I close my eyes.

I'd love to go to San Francisco,
But I'm too afraid to fly.
I can't help it, I see spiders
When I close my eyes.

    My InterpretationI love this song, In the lines saying, "I have nothing to worry about so i worry about nothing" and all the lines like it, it's like he's saying that even though nothings actually wrong he finds something. It's about fear and a feeling like everything is wrong.

    General Comment"But my spider sense is tingling." Hah, I love a good Spider-man line tossed into a song. This song has eerily the same pessimissm as all the others, yet still gives me a bit of cheer.

    General CommentThis song sums up exactly how I've been feeling lately. I've got alot of issues here in the States and I can't do much. I have a shit job and nothing else to look forward to. I have nothing to do. And I worry about nothing. And not in the good sense either.

    General Commenti kind of think this song is about how fears can hold you back from what you want to do... i.e.
    "I'd love to go to San Francisco but I'm too afraid to fly"
