lyrics

Congratulations on being alive
Yes everyone deserves an award
For making it this far after the rip chord pulled

Pulled out of the free fall
Said hello and welcome to it all
Fried eggs, downward dog, jazz on the radio

Congratulations on being alive
You didn't take that long dive
And here you are, here we are, we survived

The waiter is whistling in time, home cooking don't you know
I carry extra napkins at times like this
When no one is paying attention and I’ve made a mess

Congratulations on being alive
You didn't take that swan dive
And here you are, here we are, we're alive

The TV has poor reception
Just a lot of black and white buzz
Try to focus on something though your hearts abuzz

Keep the candles burning, but be careful for the stove
Walk me under the trees of Stern Grove

Congratulations on being alive
You didn't take that long dive
And here you are, here we are, we're alive
