lyrics

I was sitting in the captain’s chair
Upright by the T.V. glare
And breathing lightly in the dusty air
I’m not sure when I moved, or what the medics used
I was buried when my eyes were closed
I slept too long I suppose
Now I’m occupied by tic-tac-toe
And I know all my moves so I can’t win or lose
Lying lazy in my Sunday best
Leave it heard there is peace and rest
My weather’s merry and I’m whistling melodies
As my felonies are pardoned under stones inside the garden
Termite tuxedos in my size
I got names for all those crazy little guys
Here and there, they’re in my eyes
Like the movies I can improvise
Hey, it’s night in the morning
And it’s morning at night
Lying lazy in my Sunday best
Leave it heard there is peace and rest
My weather’s merry and I’m whistling melodies
As my felonies are pardoned under stones inside the garden
