check your pulse

Check your pulse, it's proof that you're not listening toThe call your life's been issuing you The rhythm of a line of idle days

Scared of a world outside you should go explore Pull all the shades and wander the great indoors The great indoors

Lamplight makes the shadows play And posters take the walls away The TV is your window pane The view won't let you down So put your faith in a late night show I bet you didn't even know Depends on how far out you go The channel numbers change

Scared of a world outside you should go explore Pull all the shades and wander the great indoors

Though lately I can't blame you I have seen the world And sometimes wish your room had room for two

So go unlock the door And find what you are here for Leave the great indoors Leave the great indoors

Check your pulse, it's proof that you're not listening to The call your life's been issuing you The rhythm of a line of idle days, of idle days

~ John Mayer, "Great Indoors"
