The Lyrics

I was thinking about this the other day while doing laundry. WARNING: Do not try this at home, or anyhwere else for that matter.
Clothes go round in a metal cave
Suck the wet from the wash and rinse
They’re mixed and matched with dungarees
Oh, I swear, used bleach again
Drying
Where are my missing clothes?
Start to grapple where they go
An appliance or a cosmic gate
Black hole to another plane
Thinking
Don’t go
Don’t go

Extrusion never stops
Washing clothes and missing socks
What if
I track and find the home
I climb right in and close the door
Spinning
I find my missing keys
Things long lost and absentees
Am I
Part of brave new world
Or a sad man with heated seat
Thinking
Oh no…(x6)

…I’m smelling burning hair
…I’m saying my last prayer
…My soul is now prepared

Thrown, thrown
With centrifugal speed
Groan, groan
Hear me mumble and plead
Known known
I would tumble and bleed
Shown shown
Where the missing things lead.

When anyone mentions socks I think of that Presidential Cat, so this got my attention. Next time put all your dirty socks in a pillow case before you put them in the wash.

One of my fave songs from Coldplay! Nice to hear you thinking about this song while doing laundry! Doing laundry makes you think about certain things as a matter of fact. But as for me, doing laundry duties are one of those chores that keeps me entertained because I could keep myself entertained by watching movies while washing clothes or ironing. Finding missing keys in a washing machine is hilarious! I had a great time reading/singing through karaoke with your ditty. Here's 555 more pairs of socks to replace the ones you lost!

Thanks all.
2Eagle- Pillow case....hmmm....smart!
CMM- I finally broke down and bought the album, and I'm kicking myself for not getting it earlier. Thanks!
Phil- Thanks for supporting the sock industry!
