lyrics

Ode to Carpet

I’ve got carpet under my roof
Between the walls
Reminds me every time I’m upside down
And softens the blow when I forget
Yeah when I fall up to the ground
Gas in my tank
Food on the shelf
I eat my blessings without wiping my mouth
I know it’s a crime if I complain

But still I feel my mind comin’ apart at the seams
The last thing left I need eludes me

Would you find me a shoulder to lay my head?
I’d trade in everything I’ve got
I know I have two of my own
But neither quite reach
The hole where my worries keep slippin’ out

Sometimes I get marbles stuck in my teeth
They rattle my brain
I guess it’s no wonder people think I’m
Incapable of speakin’ for myself
Without them all spilling to the ground
Where lucky me I’ve got carpet under my feet
A shirt on my back
And so far all my bits and pieces intact
I know it’s a crime if I complain

But still I feel my mind comin’ apart at the seams
That last thing left I need eludes me

Would you find me a shoulder to lay my head?
I’d trade in everything I’ve got
I know I have two of my own
But neither quite reach
The hole where my worries keep slippin’ out
