  • I left my body
    And I went on a journey
    And I forgot where I left my body
    They're going to tow you
    If they think you're abandoned
    You got to act like you're not abandoned

    I left a notebook with all of my good ideas
    Keywords encoded cryptographically

    I'm waiting endlessly
    On the receptionist at the desk
    I'm searching high and low
    But I don't see anyone
    Don't see anyone
    Don't see anyone there

    I left my body
    With the old landlady
    But I don't know if she read the directions
    There must be something
    you can use on the carpet
    Someone might want that electric blanket

    Unfinished Manuscript and tungsten ring
    My plastic hip is going to be worth something

    I took the folding knife and my bat repellent soap
    I left my body
    And right away I knew I'd made a mistake
    I left without my senses
    And I can't see anything
    Can't see anything

    I'm waiting endlessly
    On the receptionist at the desk
    I'm searching high and low
    But I don't see anyone
    Don't see anyone
    Don't see anyone there Writer/s: John C Flansburgh, John S Linnell
