MODEST MOUSE Florida

welcome to thestoryofthei Lyrics Sites MODEST MOUSE Florida Lyrics, singer by MODEST MOUSE

Although we often wondered
It was no thing of wonder
The shit that flew from our minds
Grass stains and fresh fruit
Reminds our shoes of horse glue
On this ridiculous climb
With great tunnel vision
We built ourselves a mission
To ride out motives decide
Oh, with vague description
Of what we have been missing
So why would anyone try?

It was always worth it
That’s the part I seem to hide
And the busy ant empire
Put all your clothes inside

I wasn’t always cargo
I was once kind of my own

I guess I’ll pack up my mind
It took so much effort
Not to make an effort
Oh, what a flawless design

It was always worth it
That’s the part I seem to hide
And the busy ant empire
Put all your clothes inside

Even as I left Florida
(yee-ha)

It was always worth it
That’s the part I seem to hide
And the busy ant empire
Put all your clothes inside

Even as I left Florida
Far enough, far enough
Wasn’t far enough

Couldn’t quite seem to escape myself
Far enough, far enough
Far from Florida
We were all drowsing in cruise control
Far enough, far enough
Wasn’t far enough

I stood on my heart supports thinkin’
Oh my God, I’ll probably have to carry this whole load.
I couldn’t remember if I tried
I couldn’t remember if I took my brain out, threw it so directly a the goal
I couldn’t remember if I…
I could have my mind erased
And still not know exactly what I don’t already know

Even as I left Florida

MODEST MOUSE Tundra/Desert

welcome to thestoryofthei Lyrics Sites MODEST MOUSE Tundra/Desert Lyrics, singer by MODEST MOUSE

Every sick, fickle fucker
Childhood’s what makes ya
Till they treat ya like tundra
Weigh those opinions
More like air than lead
Every planned occupation
Surefire disappointment up ahead
Till they treat ya like desert
See mirages of friendship, face turns read
Here’s the soon to be anchor
Build bridges to nothing, you’ll get nowhere
Every governor’s mother knows
That their bread is buttered by Sam
And what about science?
they find proof and let you make your own decisions
Every childstar wonders
If they have a future up ahead
Every kindhearted banker
I don’t think there is one
Every winning opinion
Stand on platforms in water
Filling jars full of silence you’ll get nowhere

MODEST MOUSE Fire It Up

welcome to thestoryofthei Lyrics Sites MODEST MOUSE Fire It Up Lyrics, singer by MODEST MOUSE

Etceteranough? [x8]

Fire it up, fire it up
When we finally turn it over
Make a B-line towards the border
Have a drink, you’ve had enough

Fire it up, fire it up
If you need some conversation
Bring a magazine to read around
Our broke down transportation

Fire it up
Etceteranough? [x3]

Fire it up, fire it up
When we find the perfect water
We’ll hang out on the shore
Just long enough to leave our clothes there

Fine enough, fine enough
Oh we ate all of the oranges
Off the navels of our lovers
Grabbed a book and read the cover

It honestly was beautifully done
We’d tried to hide the daylight from the sun
But even if we had been sure enough it’s true we really didn’t know
Even if we knew which way to head but still we probably wouldn’t go

Fire it up, fire it up
We pushed off we’re rolling boulders
Crashing down the mirrored stairways
Two of life’s best mine canaries

Fire it up, fire it up
When we fix the carburetor
Then we’ll push off once again
In an hour or so later

It honestly was beautifully bold
Like trying to save an ice cube from the cold
But even if we had been sure enough it’s true we really didn’t know
Even if we knew which way to head but still we probably wouldn’t go

Well we always [x2] had it all [x2]
[x3]

MODEST MOUSE Novocain Stain

welcome to thestoryofthei Lyrics Sites MODEST MOUSE Novocain Stain Lyrics, singer by MODEST MOUSE

When I can work out how it was
Then I’ll tell you
TV stained my memories, yeah
I don’ think that she’s…
Remember through sounds
Remember through smells
Remember through colors
Remember through towns
With fear and fascination
On what was here
And what’s replacing them now
Interchange plazas a mall
And crowded chain restaurants
More housing developments go up
Named after the things they replace
So welcome to Minnow Brook
And welcome to Shady Space
And it all seems a little abrupt
No I don’t like this change of pace

MODEST MOUSE Dashboard

welcome to thestoryofthei Lyrics Sites MODEST MOUSE Dashboard Lyrics, singer by MODEST MOUSE

Well, it would’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know.
Oh, the dashboard melted, but we still have the radio.

Oh, it should’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know.
Well, you told me about nowhere well it sounds like someplace I’d like to go.

Oh, it could’ve been, should’ve been worse than you would ever know.
Well, the windshield was broken but I love the fresh air you know.
(The dashboard melted but we still have the radio)

Oh, it would’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know, oh!
(The dashboard melted but we still have the radio)
Oh, we talked about nothing which was more than I wanted you to know-oh-oh-oh-oh.
Now here we go!

Oh! It would’ve been, could’ve been worse than it had even gone
Well, the car was on blocks, but I was already where I want.
(It was impossible, we ran it good, we ran it good)

Why should we ever even ever really even get to know?
(It was impossible, we ran it good, we ran it good)
Oh if the world don’t like us it’ll shake us just like we were a co-oh-oh-oh-old.
Now here we go!

Well we scheme and we scheme but we always blow it
We’ve yet to crash, but we still might as well tow it
Standing at a light switch to each east and west horizon,
Every dawn you’re surprising,
and in the evening one’s consoling
Saying See it wasn’t quite as bad as
Well, it would’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know.

I was patiently erasing and recording the wrong episodes
After you had proved my point wrong,
It wasn’t like I’d let it go, oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh.
I just wanted to catch the last laugh of this show.

Yeah, it would’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know.
Oh, the dashboard melted, but we still have the radio.
(The dashboard melted, but we ran it good, we ran it good)

Hard-wired to conceive, so much we’d have to stow it
Even needs have needs, tiny giants made of tinier giants.
Don’t wear eyelids so I don’t miss the last laugh of this show.
(The dashboard melted but we still have the radio)

Oh, we could’ve been, should’ve been worse than you would ever know.
(The dashboard melted but we still have the radio)
Well, you told me about nowhere well it sounds like someplace I’d like to go-oh-oh-oh-oh.
Now here we go!

Well we scheme and we scheme but we always blow it
We’ve yet to crash, but we still might as well tow it
Standing at a light switch to each east and west horizon,
Every dawn you’re surprising,
and in the evening one’s consoling
Saying See it wasn’t quite as bad as

Oh it would’ve been, could’ve been worse than you would ever know.

MODEST MOUSE Dog Paddle

welcome to thestoryofthei Lyrics Sites MODEST MOUSE Dog Paddle Lyrics, singer by MODEST MOUSE

I’m down on the water
(I’m down on the water)
I don’t know so I don’t bother.
(I don’t know so I don’t bother)
Looking out the window of my dad’s old Chevy.
(Lookin’ out the window of my dad’s old Chevy.)
Eats a lot of gas cause it’s that more heavy.
(Eats a lot of gas cause it’s that more heavy.)
I’m down on the county line and,
(We’re all down on the county line.)
We’re all screamin’ Carolina.
(We’re all screamin’ Carolina.)
I’m down on the water.
(I’m down on the water)
We don’t like what we just saw but…
(We don’t like what we just saw but…)
I can’t swim so I dog paddle.
(I can’t swim so I dog paddle.)
I can’t swim so I dog paddle.
I eat? (?) inside it feels like murder.
I can’t swim so I dog paddle.
I can’t swim so I DOG PADDLE.
I’m down on the water.
(I’m down on the water)
I don’t know so I don’t bother.
(We don’t got no meat to swallow.)
Lookin’ out the window of my dad’s old Chevy.
(I can’t swim so I dog paddle.)
Eats a lot of gas cause it’s that more heavy.
(…(?)… inside it feels like murder)
I’m down on the county line and.
We’re all singin Carolina.
(I can’t swim so I dog paddle [repeated])
We’re down on the county line again.
We’re all screaming Caroline again.
What you say and what you want again.
You can’t get it cuz you don’t get it. No.
(i’m down on the water..)

MODEST MOUSE March Into The Sea

welcome to thestoryofthei Lyrics Sites MODEST MOUSE March Into The Sea Lyrics, singer by MODEST MOUSE

If food needed pleasing you’d suck all the seasoning off,

Suck it off!

Well treat me like the disease like the rats and the fleas,

A-ha-ha!

Bang your head like a gong ’cause its’ filled with all wrong!

A-ha-ha!

If you think you know enough
to know you know you’ve had enough.
And if you think you don’t you probably will.

Our tauls wagged and then fell off, but we just turned back,
marched into the sea.
Well treat me like the sea oh so salty and mean,

Ah-ha-hah-ha!

Well treat me like the disease like the rats and the fleas, ah-ha-ha!

I’ll be beating my heart’s record for speeding.
I’ll be beating the record for hearts skipping in the dark.

Our tails wagged and then fell off but we just turned back, marched into the sea, well we just turned back, marched into the sea.

Take all that you need like my sign says for free, till it’s gone!

Till it’s gone!

Well discard whom you please like the leaves off a tree,

A-ha-ha!

Let’s shake hands if you want but soon both hands are gone, ha-ha-ha!

Well treat me like the sea oh so salty and mean, oh-ha-ha.
Oh treat me like the sea oh so salty and mean
oh-ha-ha. Treat me like the disease like the rats and the fleas.
Bang your head like a gong ’cause you call it all wrong, move your tongue.

Klang klang! Klang klang! Klang klang! Klang klang, klang klang!

Cut me down like a tree like the lumber or weeds, well discard who you please like the leaves off a tree. Drag me out of the sea and then teach me to breath. Give me forced health till I wish death on myself.

Ah! Ha! Ha!

Well we all stumbled round tangled up in the cords from our phones, V.C.R. and our wordly woes.

Ah! Ha! Ha!

March on!
March on!
March on!
March on!
MARCH ON!
