DOES ANYBODY KNOW A WAY
Modest Mouse lyrics thread..go!
The days get shorter and the nights get cold
I like the autumn but this place is getting old
I pack up my belongings and I head for the coast
It might not be a lot but I feel like I'm making the most
The day's get longer and the nights smell green
I guess it's not surprising but it's spring and I should leave
Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon
I've changed my mind so much I cant even trust it
My mind changed me so much I cant even trust myself
BELIEVE IN NEITHER BUT FEAR THEM AS WELL
SO NO ONES TAKING SHOWERS ANYMORE
TRAVELLING, SWALLOWING DRAMAMINE
200 miles is a long drive inside a car
300 miles is a long drive inside a car
400 miles is a long drive inside a car
500 miles is a real long drive inside a car
600 miles is a long drive inside a car
700 miles is a long drive inside a car
800 miles is a long drive inside a car
900 miles is a long, long, long, long ways in a car
1000 miles is a long drive inside a car
1100 miles is too far inside a car
GOD I SURE HOPE YOU ARE DEAD
AND YOU'LL GO ROUND TOWN NO ONE WANTS TO BE UPTIGHT, ANYMORE
and it seemed to me
that every night turns out to be
a little bit more like Bukowski
and yeah I know he's a pretty good read
but god who'd wanna be
god who'd wanna be
such an asshole?
I used to live with an American Christian girl (among others, I mean) and she laughed when this song went off as my ringtone in the kitchen. I changed it soon after. :(
SO EVERYONE COULD FIND A WAY OUT
THAT I CANNOT SLEEP AWAY
it was dripping pitch & made of wood
and your hands & knees
felt cold and wet on the grass to me
Well, outside naked, shivering, looking blue
From the cold sunlight that's reflected off the moon
Baby cum angels fly around you
Reminding you we used to be three and not just two
And that's how the world began
And that's how the world will end
BRING A MAGAZINE TO READ AROUND OUR BROKE DOWN TRANSPORTATION.
And that you'd killed the better part of me.
If you could just milk it for everything
I've said what I've said and you know what I mean
But I still can't focus on anything.
Oh man, those lyrics.
NOT A PERSON DOESN'T WANT ME UNDERGROUND
SOMETHING'S GONNA STEAL YOUR CARBON
GOD IF I HAVE TO DIE, YOU WILL HAVE TO DIE.
Better things to do, so I'll start drinkin'
you know we need oxygen to breathe
time to stop, "Doting Over Death", pseudo adventures through the ma-cob
plastic TV travels to the other side,to cut down that devil is the job
......I'm gonna go through those aches & pains,'cuz lately I've been getting real high. I just had, my collision with the sky, & you know what happens next.....tomorrow I won't be able to stomach, what the mirror reflects......"Doting Over Death"
I'd rather laugh than cry; I'd rather, go down swinging, than Let the devil spit in my eye. ... everywhere there's tears falling out of the sky. Here between heaven & hell, everything is Do...Than..Die
Only for those who "Stake Their Claim"..to Have More to do..Live...
We're Having a Big TO-DO.......you're invited.
I'm gonna look out the window of my colour TV.
I didn't leave my bed for eight days straight
I haven't hung out with anyone
Because if I did, I'd have nothing to say
the city moved to me
and I want out desperately
but i'm told that it'll all be quite nice
you'll be drowned in boots like Mafia
but your feet will still float like Christ's
gotta see, gotta know right now
WHAT'S THAT RIDING ON YOUR EVERYTHING?
I spent the same 18 hours in the same damn place.
Breath 100% Listerene
He said looking at something else but directing everything to me
'Every time anyone gets on their knees to pray
Well it MAKES MY TELEPHONE RING!
And I'll be damned'
