Words and music by Dan Sonenberg


Someone open the door
Let the cat in, he's been scratchin'
Me, I'm stuck in bed, I think it might be catchin'
Pour me a cup of the sauce
Ease my burden, put my feet up
Keep me in your graces, I've been beat up

This is just a throwaway
You know the way it goes
And all the pretty lines go by
and leave you shaking to your toes
I guess I don't know
I don't know why

Someone bring in the mail
Toss it gently, I've been sleeping
Have a look and tell me what's worth keeping
People been writing to me
Asking questions, where've I been to?
Someday I'm gonna explain, but I haven't begun to.

I don't know why everything's out of control
I've been shut down
I don't know if you'll keep coming around
But it's all the same 'cause it's only a game

Someone open the crib
Let the kid out he'll go playing
Sometimes you gotta give in, I'm just sayin'
Sometimes you gotta break down
Strip the terror, stop the fakin'
Sometimes you gotta stand up to keep from breaking
