Good ol’ Modest Mouse:

Hey, haven’t seen you around in a while
I didn’t go to work for a month
I didn’t leave my bed for eight days straight
I haven’t hung out with anyone
‘Cause if I did, I’d have nothing to say
I didn’t feel angry or depressed
I didn’t feel anything at all
I didn’t want to go to bed
And I didn’t want to stay up late
When you’re living your life, well, that’s the price you pay
Whenever I breath out, you’re breathing it in
Whenever I speak out, you’re speaking it in you, now
I’m feeling this positive/negative
I didn’t go to work for a month
I didn’t leave my bed for eight days straight
I haven’t hung out with anyone
‘Cause if I did, I’d have nothing to say

 

3rd Planet

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
Ive got this thing that I consider my only art of fucking people over.
My boss just quit the job says hes goin out to find blind
Spots and hell do it.
The 3rd planet is sure that theyre being watched by an
Eye in the sky that cant be stopped.
When you get to the promise land your gonna shake that
Eyes hand.
Your heart felt good it was drippin pitch and made of wood.
And your hands and knees felt cold and wet on the grass to me.
Outside naked, shiverin looking blue, from the cold
Sunlight thats reflected off the moon.
They become angels fly around you reminding you we used
To be three and not just two.
And thats how the world began.
And thats how the world will end.
A 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the
Water, didnt know then was it a son was it a daughter.
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies and
Another had been found another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the atlantic.
And how.
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth if you go
Straight long enough youll end up where you were.
Your heart felt good it was drippin pitch and made of wood.
And your hands and knees felt cold and wet on the grass to me.
Outside naked, shiverin looking blue, from the cold
Sunlight thats reflected off the moon.
They become angels fly around you reminding you we used
To be three and not just two.
And thats how the world began.
And thats how the world will end.

 

Blame It on the Tetons

 

Blame it on the Tetons. Yeah, I need a scapegoat now.
No my dog won’t bite you, though it had the right to. You oughta give her credit cuz she knows I would’ve let it happen.

Blame it on the weekends. God, I need a cola now.
Oh we mumble loudly, wear our shame so proudly. Wore our blank expressions, trying to look interesting. Blame it all on me cuz god I need a cold one now.

All them eager actors gladly taking credit for the lines created by the people tucked away from sight is just a window from the room we’re bound to. If you find a way out, oh would you just let me know how? Would you just let me know how?

Blame it on the web but the spider’s your problem now. Language is for liquid that we’re all dissolved in. Great for solving problems, after it creates a problem. Blame it on the Tetons. God, I need a scapegoat now.

Everyone’s a building burning with no one to put the fire out. Standing at the window looking out, waiting for time to burn us down. Everyone’s an ocean drowning with no one really to show how. They might get a little better air if they turned themselves into a cloud.
