The National – Blank Slate lyrics
I was home entertaining guests
I fell off the chair and cracked open my head
Bees flew out and they flew up their skirts
'Cause they wanted to travel the world

I was home entertaining guests
I fell off the chair and cracked open my head
Bees flew out and they flew up their skirts
'Cause 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

Oh no, I thought I'd be by now
My head is a buzzing three-star hotel, oh no
Oh 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

Oh no, I thought I'd be by now
My head is a buzzing three-star hotel, oh no
Oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Nowhere did I thought I'd be by now
My head is a buzzing three-star hotel, oh no
Oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
