Hot Chip - Flutes

I started listening to Hot Chip a couple years back or maybe more. It was around the time I was getting into Animal Collective and some other weird music. Actually, this was back in the day when iTunes was really popular for downloading music. Everyone was actually buying songs on iTunes and I remember "gifting" a Hot Chip album to a friend I believe it was "The Warning" We were laughing about my gift a couple months ago when we saw Hot Chip at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The show was pretty good. The lead singer really sounds like a woman, but the show was entertaining. As far as Music goes, this Hot Chip song is pretty epic. Try and hear all the different instruments playing along and you will be blown away by the simple complexity. "One day you might realize that you might need to open your eyes"

Here are the lyrics.
I know it's nothing more than flutes
But something in my heart is loose
There's never been a better day

And if there is nothing more
And nothing more that I say
There's never been a better day

-Chorus
-Work that inside outside
-Work that more
-Work that right side left side
-More and more
-Inside outside left side work the floor
-Inside outside upside down with more
-Work that inside outside 
-Work that more
-Work that right side left side more that more
-Inside outside left side work the floor
-Inside outside upside down with more

I put up on a string today
Deciding never taught me a thing
A wooden box breathes the way

Never again
Never again
Never again
Never again

-Chorus
All this talk is getting me down
Nothing's making sense in my brain
I'm moving words across the terrain
Trying hard to fix to the page
I'm wedded to the thought that we came 
Only to discover our names
And blow up all our love in refrain

And watch things drop down
And watch things drop down
And watch things drop down
And watch things drop down

-Chorus
All this talk is getting me down
Nothing's making sense in my brain
I'm moving words across the terrain
Trying hard to fix to the page
I'm wedded to the thought that we came 
Only to discover our names
And blow up all our love in refrain

And watch things drop down
And watch things drop down
And watch things drop down
And watch things drop down

One day you might realize
That you might need to open your eyes
One day you might realize
That you might need to open your eyes

-Chorus
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes

One day you might realize
that you might need to open your eyes
One day you might realize
that you might need to open your eyes
