see the world beyond your front door

The wordplay is too good to mess with. Barenaked Ladies’ “Pinch Me” -

It's the perfect time of year
Somewhere far away from here
I feel fine enough, I guess
Considering everything's a mess
There's a restaurant down the street
Where hungry people like to eat
I could walk, but I'll just drive
It's colder than it looks outside

It's like a dream, you try to remember but it's gone, then ya
Try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn, when ya
Try to see the world beyond your front door
Take your time cos the way I rhyme's gonna make you smile, when ya
Realize that a guy my size might take a while, just to
Try to figure out what all this is for

It's the perfect time of day
To throw all your cares away
Put the sprinkler on the lawn
( warning don’t try that here for at least another 4 or 5 months)
An' run through with my gym shorts on
Take a drink right from the hose
An' change into some drier clothes
Climb the stairs up to my room
Sleep away the afternoon

It's like a dream, you try to remember but it's gone, then ya
Try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn, when ya
Try to see the world beyond your front door
Take your time cos the way I rhyme's gonna make you smile, when ya
Realize that a guy my size might take a while, just to
Try to figure out what all this is for

Pinch me
Pinch me
'Cos I'm still asleep
Please God
Tell me
That I'm still asleep

On an evening such as this
It's hard to tell if I exist
Packed the car and leave this town
Who'll notice that I'm not around?
I could hide out under there
I just made you say "Underwear"
I could leave but I'll just stay
All my stuff's here anyway

It's like a dream, you try to remember but it's gone, then ya
Try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn, when ya
Try to see the world beyond your front door
Take your time cos the way I rhyme's gonna make you smile, when ya
Realize that a guy my size might take a while, just to

Try to figure out what all this is for
Try to figure out what all this is for
Try to see the world beyond your front door
Try to figure out what all this is for
