Blank Slate

This song is by The National and appears on the EP The Virginia EP (2008).

I was home entertaining guests, when I fell off the chair and cracked open my head
Bees flew out, and they flew up their skirts
Because they wanted to travel the world

I was home entertaining guests, when I fell off the chair and cracked open my head
Bees flew out, and they flew up their skirts
Because they wanted to travel the world

But I keep it upstairs
Keep it upstairs for the grand finale
I keep it upstairs
Gonna be a blank slate
Gonna wear a white cape
But I keep it upstairs
Gonna jump out of a cake with my heart on a string
Keep it upstairs, keep it upstairs, keep it upstairs

I go out looking in parked cars
For somebody famous to kidnap and love
Beat off the army with a tennis racket

I go out looking in parked cars
For somebody famous to kidnap and love
Beat off the army with a tennis racket
That's my whole plan

But I keep it upstairs
Keep it upstairs for the grand finale
I keep it upstairs
Gonna be a blank slate
Gonna wear a white cape
But I keep it upstairs
Gonna tackle young girls off their beautiful bikes
But I keep it upstairs, keep it upstairs, keep it upstairs

I don't know what I thought I'd be by now
My head is a buzzing three star hotel
Oh no
No no no no no no no no

But I keep it upstairs
Keep it upstairs for the grand finale
I keep it upstairs
Gonna be a blank slate
Gonna wear a white cape
But I keep it upstairs
Gonna jump out of a cake with my heart on a string
Keep it upstairs, keep it upstairs, keep it upstairs

I don't know what I thought I'd be by now
My head is a buzzing three star hotel
Oh no
No no no no no no no no

Nowhere that I thought I'd be by now
My head is a buzzing three star hotel
Oh no
No no no no no no no no
