ABOUT:

"In the early days of COVID lockdown, I took a lot of naps to help with my anxiety. I don’t think I realized how tired I was from grinding away at my job in film and TV until the whole thing came to a screeching halt in early 2020. This song is about waking up into a new reality that I wish I could just sleep off like a hangover." ~ Ben

LYRICS:

Your alarm goes off at the crack of noon
It’s somehow late but also too soon
Trade your night sweats for daytime pjs
To sleep your midday afternoon blues away

Put down your phone and go back to bed
Stop the hamster wheel that spins in your head
A good day’s sleep is your only goal
Let go of things that you can’t control

The day is long so nap in the middle
It takes a lot out of you doing so little
When you’re tired you’re not at your best
Take a break from chilling to get some rest

Put down your phone and go back to bed
Stop the hamster wheel that spins in your head
A good day’s sleep is your only goal
Let go of things that you can’t control

It’s a midday lullaby
The sleepy sun in high in the sky
It’s a midday lullaby
Let’s teach this crawling time how to fly

Up from your nap and the sun’s going down
Bandana Bandits roam this ghost town
We’ll make food or get takeout instead
After dinner we’ll go back to bed
