You got a window in the basement.
You got a perfect view, but you don't care.
Have you ever seen the things that go on outside?
You got a door to your apartment,
so you can step outside and see the sights.
Downtown looks like don't own if you look at it right.
You just might sleep yourself to death.
You guts will spill onto your bed.
I've got a windowsill that I mentioned earlier where you can rest your chin.
There is also a seat, that I've heard exists somewhere, for the perfect rest.
It's just a simple plan to keep you awake.
No matter what I try, your eyeballs seem to hide.
After saying that you won't sleep in ever again, you slept all morning long.
If you bore than you must be boring too. Did I stutter?
Your own kind of corruption leads to sleeping in.
If you want to wait, then I'll just start the clock,
and see how much time you waste.

    General CommentThe windosill he mentioned earlyer? Was that in Grace Kelly with Wings? Go look for yourself. My question is, are both songs pertaining to the same person? Don't know just an observation.

    General CommentMy friends just turned me on to Piebald... this weekend in fact. I feel like I have been cheated and in the dark not knowing about them before!! When they put this CD in I had an awakening I couldn't explain. Piebald the f**king sh*t as far as I am concerned. and I am so glad I got to experience them.... and oh yeah this song rocks!!

    General Commentthis song was on heavy rotation in my stereo when i was suffering from wavering bouts of insomnia followed by oversleeping ... this song rocks my world to jupiter and back. the music vid is one of the best i've seen, albeit a bit confusing. the editing is fantastic, and the idea in general. i wanna eat them. :P i kid, i kid.

    General Commentthe fact that no one pointed out how the song is about how much time we waste instead of living real lives is just amazing to me

    even the sadistic humor "a seat for the perfect rest" im sure hes making refrance to the fact that every american is in love with his lay z boy
