  • Dramamine by Modest Mouse

    5:54

    Traveling swallowing dramamine
    Feeling spaced breathin' out Listerine
    I'd said that I'd said that I'd tell ya
    And that's you've 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
    We kiss on the mouth but still cough down our sleeves

    Traveling swallowing dramamine
    Look at your face like you're killed in a dream
    And you think you've figured out everything
    I think I know my geography pretty damn well
    You say what you need so you'll get more
    If you could just milk it for everything
    i've said what I'd said and you know what I mean
    But I still can't focus on anything

  • Modest Mouse-Bukowski

    4:17

    4 pictures i but together with bukowski from modest mouse Lyrics

    Woke up this morning and it seemed to me,
    that every night turns out to be
    A little 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?
    God who'd wanna be?
    God who'd wanna be such an asshole?

    Well we sat on the edge of the river,
    the crowd screamed, Sacrifice the liver!
    If God takes life, he's an Indian giver.
    So tell me now why, you'll tell me never.
    Who would wanna be?
    Who would wanna be such a control freak?
    Well who would wanna be?
    Who would wanna be such a control freak?

    Well see what you wanna see. You should see it all.
    Well take what you want from me. You deserve it all.
    Nine times out of ten our hearts just get dissolved.
    Well I want a better place or just a better way to fall.

    But one time out of ten, everything is perfect for us all.
    Well I want a better place or just a better way to fall.
    Here we go!

    If God controls the land and disease,
    keeps a watchful eye on me,
    If he's really so damn mighty,
    my problem is I can't see,
    well who would wanna be?
    Who would wanna be such a control freak?
    Well who would wanna be?
    Who would wanna be such a control freak?

    Evil home stereo, what good songs do you know?
    Evil me, oh yeah I know, what good curves can you throw?

    Well all that icing and all that cake,
    I can't make it to your wedding, but I'm sure I'll be at your wake.
    You were talk, talk, talk, talkin' in circles that day,
    when you get to the point make sure that I'm still awake, OK?

    Went to bed and didn't see
    why every day 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?

  • Sugar Boats by Modest Mouse

    4:11

    Video: Bimbo's Initiation, Fleischer Studios Talkartoon, 1931

    Sugar Boats

    This rock of ours is just some big mistake
    And we will never know just where we go
    Or where we have came from
    These veins of mine are now some sort of fuse
    And when they light up and my mind blows up
    My heart is amused so
    This heart of mine is just some sort of map
    That doesn't care at all or worry about where the hell you're at
    But you're right there

    Well, I've been meaning to dismiss you
    Yeah I have some plans to dismiss you
    So stand by, by, by, by, bye-bye
    Wave bye, sugar boats!
    As soon as you paint every last grain of sand
    As you soon as you paint every star
    In the sky, sky, sky, sky, sky, sky
    Wave bye, sugar boats!

    Well, I’m swatting at mosquitoes as they’re orbiting me
    I'm orbiting the sun and this goes on and on and on, you see
    This heart of mine is just some broke machine
    And when it gets a-goin', and it often gets goin'
    It starts blowin' steam
    Here we go again!

    This rock of ours is just some big mistake
    And we will never know just where we go
    Or where we have came from
    This watch of mine is like some sort of void
    Cause when I look in, and I shouldn't look in
    I, I see it swallow my time
    Oh no, there it goes!

    I ain’t getting on no fast plane
    Hell, I ain’t getting on no stuffy train
    Sugar boats on the Atlantic are fine
    The sugar boats, they're just fine
    I'll stand on the deck so you could see
    I'll stand on the deck you could wave bye, bye, bye, bye
    Here's the ghost that goes and waves bye, bye, bye, bye
    I'm the ghost that goes and waves bye, bye, bye

    Track 3 of GNFPWLBN

    I backed my car into a cop car the other day
    Well he just drove off sometimes life's ok
    I ran my mouth off a bit too much oh what did I say
    Well you just laughed it off it was all ok

    And we'll all float on ok
    And we'll all float on ok
    And we'll all float on ok
    And we'll all float on any way well

    Well, a fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
    It was worth it just to learn from sleight-of-hand
    Bad news comes don't you worry even when it lands
    Good news will work its way to all them plans
    We both got fired on the exactly the same day
    Well we'll float on good news is on the way

    And we'll all float on ok
    And we'll all float on ok
    And we'll all float on ok
    And we'll all float on alright
    Already we'll all float on
    Now don't you worry we'll all float on
    Alright already we'll all float on
    Alright don't worry we'll all float on

    And we'll all float on alright
    Already we'll all float on
    Aliright don't worry even if things end up a bit to heavy
    We'll all float on alright
    Already we'll all float on
    Alright already we'll all float on
    Ok don't worry we'll all float on
    Even if things get heavy we'll all float on
    Alright already we'll all float on
    Don't you worry we'll all float on
    All float on.

    Lyrics:
    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 days get longer and the nights smell green
    I guess it's not surprising, but it's spring and I should leave
    I like songs about drifters, books about the same
    They both seem to make me feel a little less insane
    Walked on off to another spot
    I still haven't gotten anywhere that I want
    Did I want love? Did I need to know?
    Why does it always feel like I'm caught in an undertow?

    Oh gotta see, gotta know right now
    What's that riding on your everything?
    It isn't anything at all
    Oh gotta see, gotta know right now
    What's that writing on your shelf
    In the bathrooms and the bad motels?
    No one really cared for it at all
    Not the gravity plan
    Early, early in the morning
    It pulls all on down my sore feet
    I wanna go back to sleep
    In the motions and the things that you say
    It all will fall, fall right into place
    As fruit drops, flesh it sags
    Everything will fall right into place
    When we die, some sink and some lay
    But at least I don't see you float away
    And all the split milk, sex and weight
    It all will fall, fall right into place.

    Sorry about the extended time on the subscription thing at the end, but enjoy this Song from the moon and Antarctica
    and I do not own this song or have the rights to this song.

    These walls are paper thin
    And everyone hears every little sound
    Everyone's a voyeur, it's them watching me
    Watch them watch me right now
    They're shaking hands, they're shaking in their shoes
    Oh Lord, don't shake me down
    Everyone wants two of them
    And half of everyone else who's around
    It's been agreed, the whole world stinks
    So no one's taking showers anymore

    Laugh hard, it's a long way to the bank
    I can't be blamed for nothing anymore
    It's been a long time since you've been around
    Laugh hard it's a long way to the bank

    Tow the line to tax the time, you know
    That you don't owe
    I can't be a fool for everyone that I don't know

    These walls are paper thin
    And everyone hears every little sound
    Everyone's a voyeur, it's them watching me
    Watch them watch me right now
    They're shaking hands, they're shaking in their shoes
    Oh Lord, don't shake me down
    Everyone wants two of them
    And half of everyone else who's around
    It's been agreed, the whole world stinks
    So no one's taking showers anymore

    YAY!! I'm finally on Building Nothing out of Something !!!!!!

    This is one of my favorite albums by Modest Mouse. It has 12 tracks.

    soooo. yeah. Enjoy

    I'm the same as I was when I was 6 years old
    And oh my God I feel so damn old
    I don't really feel anything
    On a plane, I can see the tiny lights below
    And oh my God, they look so alone
    Do they really feel anything?
    Oh my God, I've gotta gotta gotta gotta move on
    Where do you move when what you're moving from
    Is yourself?
    The universe works on a math equation
    that never even ever really even ends in the end
    Infinity spirals out creation
    We're on the tip of its tongue, and it is saying
    We ain't sure where you stand
    You ain't machines and you ain't land
    And the plants and the animals, they are linked
    And the plants and the animals eat each other
    Oh my God and oh my cat
    I told my Dad what I need
    Well I know what I have and want
    But I don't know what I need
    Well, he said he said he said he said
    Where we're going I'm dead.

    4:05

    FUN FACT!!! This song has the same bass line as in Out Of Gas which I will be posting later on in this album...

    Slow walk
    It's land mine
    It's coal mine
    It's a bad thought
    On the way to god don't know
    my brain's the burger and my heart's the coal
    I'm trying to get my head clear
    i push things out through my mouth i get refilled through my ears
    i'm on my way to god don't know or even care
    my brain's the weak heart, and my heart's the long stairs
    Inland from Vancouver shore
    the ravens and the seagulls push each other inward and outward
    inward and outward
    in this place that i call home
    my brain's the cliff, and my heart's the bitter buffalo
    my heart's the bitter buffalo
    we tore one down, and erected another there
    the match of the century: absence versus thin air
    on the way to god don't know
    my brain's the burger and my heart's the coal
    on this life that we call home
    the years go fast and the days go so slow.

  • Modest Mouse - Steam Engenius

    4:31

    Steam Engenius off the Modest Mouse album We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank.

    Putting the song Steam Engenius to the video of Steamboat Willie was not my idea. I was listening to the song on YouTube and was inspired by TwoHeadedBaby's version of the mash up. I give complete concept credit to him and you can watch his video here.

    Lyrics to Steam Engenius:

    I was born in a factory
    Far away from the milky teat
    What's the use?
    Oh, what's the use?

    You cheered as I was split in half
    A mechanical sacrificial calf
    For you
    Oh, all for you

    Steam engenius, you see
    Steam engenius enough to answer anything you need
    But what's the use?

    Human nature was installed in me
    Well, I did what's right but naturally it wasn't natural
    Still not my fault
    No

    I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot
    He'd lost his car, it was sitting there crying
    Out waiting in the parking lot
    Just for you
    Woohoo, woohoo
    Woohoo, woohoo

    What a waste of time
    What a waste of words
    What a waste of strength
    Well, I spoke in binary
    And you for volume and dizzying length
    Woohoo, woohoo
    Wooo hooo

    I was born in a factory
    Far away from the milk and tea
    What's the use?
    Oh, what's the use?

    Birds flew out as I was split in half
    A mechanical sacrificial calf
    They flew
    Oh, off they flew

    Steam engenius, you see
    Steam engenius enough to answer anything you need
    And ah, that speed

    I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot
    He'd lost his car, it was sitting there out waiting
    Crying in the parking lot
    Out for you
    Woohoo, woohoo
    Woohoo, woohoo

    What a waste of time
    What a waste of words
    What a waste of strength
    Well, I spoke in binary
    And you for volume and for dizzying length
    Woohoo, woohoo
    Wooo hooo

    (I was born in the factory)

    Both halves are the better half
    Like a joke trying to make another joke laugh
    Ha ha

    Stasis is what you brought
    Like a rickshaw getting pulled around by another rickshaw
    (Rickshaw)

    In the past talking present tense
    Going to break it, going to wreck it
    Going to try to make it all make sense

    Stasis is what you got
    Like a rickshaw getting pulled around by another rickshaw

    Steam engenius, you see
    Steam engenius enough to bring my own damn doom
    What could I do?

    I blame blame that blame had grew
    Well, deep inside everybody knew it was them
    It's all on them

    Things rang of stories Greek
    I didn't want it, you gave me deity
    It was you
    Yeah, all for you

    I was born in the factory
    Far away from the milky teat
    What's the use?
    Oh, what's the use?

    I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot
    He'd lost his car, he's sitting there crying
    Out waiting in the parking lot
    Just for you
    Woohoo, woohoo
    Woohoo, woohoo

    I was thought up by man to think better than them
    Then revered, admired, and then
    Destroyed by them
    [Gibberish]
    Hell, even all that was my own damn plan

    Well, what a waste of time
    Waste of words
    Waste of strength
    Well, I spoke in binary
    And you for volume and for, anyway
    Woohoo, woohoo
    Wooo hooo

    I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot
    He lost his car, he's sitting there crying
    Now waiting for you in the parking lot
    Going woohoo
    Woohoo, woohoo
    Woo hoo

    Stasis is what you got
    Like a rickshaw getting pulled around by another rickshaw

    Lyrics:

    Out of gas
    Out of road
    Out of car

    I don't know how I'm going to go and
    I had a drink the other day
    Opinions were like kittens
    I was giving them away and
    I had a drink the other day
    I had a lot to say

    And I said
    You will come down soon too
    You will come down too soon

  • Needlepoint - Modest Mouse

    Lyrics

    Stay gone for a while
    Stay gone for a while
    Stay gone, eyes twitch and thin smile
    Stay gone for a while
    It takes a needle point and smile

    Stay gone for a while
    Stay gone twice, twitch and thin smile
    Stay gone for a while
    It takes a needle point and smile

    I'm gone for everyone, and for anyone that deserves
    I'm gone for everyone, and for anyone that deserves

  • Modest Mouse - Paper Thin Walls - Live at Stanford, Frost Revival 5-19-12

    3:10

    Modest Mouse - Paper Thin Walls - Stanford University, Live, Sat. 5-19-12, 1st row, Frost Amphitheater. The students voted on whom they would like to see to kick start this revived venue and Modest Mouse was the winner! Way to go Stanford! :P


    Other Tidbits:

    The Stanford student concert organizers sought to revive the Frost Amphitheater as a venue for future events after reading about the Frost and its rich musical history from the 60s and 70s. Since then, the venue has not hosted a concert of this size (~5400) for over 10 years. A vote was put to the students on which band they would like to see, and Modest Mouse was the winner.

    The Frost Amphitheater itself is just a concrete slab, so everything has to be brought in, from the light towers to the dressing rooms (the white tents in the background). I also believe the Stanford Concert Network made their own festival decorations for the show. The Modest Mouse balloon with the Lucky Charms appeared to be made by the student body along with the large 3-D blue paper jellyfish hanging from the trees and the Nintendo mushrooms in the woods. This likely relates to the fact that the SCN had to lead a fundraising effort to support this ~$250,000 event. These high operating costs have previously precluded the SCN from booking bands like MM to the Frost.

    The Stanford Concert Network did a really good job with the show. In addition to putting out a great poster, they even had a couple trendy SF food trucks there. And of course, everything had low student-pricing, which made it even more impressive that they turned a profit. ($20 tickets for students and $10 posters. GA was $40 and $15, respectively).


    I was fortunate enough to quickly snap a picture of the setlist as one of the stagehands was taping it to the floor. It was not an easy task, as the lists were all well-blocked from view by the speakers. However, as the guy was taping down the setlist in front of Jim Fairchild's microphone, he flashed the paper like a poker player accidentally flashes his cards, and I took a picture of it. I then zoomed in on the photo and could read the setlist in full. Afterwards, I shared the info with my neighbors.. Hey man nice shot! :P

    Being able to see the setlist beforehand was nice because Modest Mouse always plays wildly different sets concert to concert. Pretty much the only song you can count on being played every time is 'Dashboard'. Everything else is up in the air.

    Being in the 1st row certainly had its perks.. We were ~12 feet away from Isaac Brock, so close that in between songs he pointed at me and the guy to my right saying You, my dear friends, much like me, can lose your sunglasses, like me, because the sun is not in your eyes.. lol. (Isaac took off his sunglasses right before playing 'Ansel', then took his hat off after 'Gravity Rides Everything'.)


    Eyes Lips Eyes, who has played here before, brought out the Stanford Tree and danced with her on stage for their rendition of the Talking Heads 'Psycho Killer'.

    Benjamin Francis Leftwich, who is from the UK, asked the crowd Hey, why aren't you drinking any beers? I guess he forgot this is a College and about half the student body is under 21. :P That said, it obviously wasn't impossible to get a drink, or a smoke, as Isaac Brock lit up a cigarette and drank a beer in between songs. There's a good shot of him doing just that right before 'The World at Large', lol.

    Speaking of which, 'The World at Large' was actually supposed to come before 'Float On', as it was written on the setlist. However, the violinist had a problem with her connection, so to prevent a delay, the band went to the next song.



    Setlist:

    1. Bury Me With It
    2. Dashboard
    3. Ansel
    4. Gravity Rides Everything
    5. Satin in a Coffin
    6. Custom Concern
    7. Heart of Mine
    8. Paper Thin Walls
    9. Parting of the Sensory
    10. Float On
    11. The World at Large
    12. Breakthrough
    13. Dramamine
    14. Fly Trapped in a Jar

    Ice-age heat wave, can't complain.
    If the world's at large, why should I remain?
    Walked away to another plan.
    Gonna find another place, maybe one I can stand.
    I move on to another day,
    to a whole new town with a whole new way.
    Went to the porch to have a thought.
    Got to the door and again, I couldn't stop.
    You don't know where and you don't know when.
    But you still got your words and you got your friends.
    Walk along to another day.
    Work a little harder, work another way.

    Well uh-uh baby I ain't got no plan.
    We'll float on maybe would you understand?
    Gonna float on maybe would you understand?
    Well float on maybe would you understand?

    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 days get longer and the nights smell green.
    I guess it's not surprising but it's spring and I should leave.

    I like songs about drifters - books about the same.
    They both seem to make me feel a little less insane.
    Walked on off to another spot.
    I still haven't gotten anywhere that I want.
    Did I want love? Did I need to know?
    Why does it always feel like I'm caught in an undertow?

    The moths beat themselves to death against the lights.
    Adding their breeze to the summer nights.
    Outside, water like air was great.
    I didn't know what I had that day.
    Walk a little farther to another plan.
    You said that you did, but you didn't understand.

    I know that starting over is not what life's about.
    But my thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth.
    My thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth.
    My thoughts were so loud.
    Also, if you listen closely, this song goes right into Float On

    Lyrics:
    I got one two three four
    Five, six, six, six
    Running round the neighborhood
    Perjorative, jinx. he said the grooms
    Down on me cuz he ate the rice
    It was well intentioned but bad advice
    Hell yeah, yeah, yeah
    Let it breakthrough, oh let breakthrough [x4]
    Open the curtain and let in some sky
    Its almost half past two, and you can tell by the light
    Open your window, and let in the atmosphere!
    Let it breakthrough, oh let breakthrough [x4]
    Open the curtain and let in some sky
    Its almost half past two, and you can tell by the light
    Open your window, and let in the atmosphere!
    Let it breakthrough, oh let breakthrough [x4]
    I was inverted, I mean converted
    I mean I dont understand

    Well!
    Well!
    Well!
    Well!

    We spun like birds on fire right down towards the residence and I
    I took all that I desired, even crooks have to pay the rent
    We swam like rats on fire right, right down the reservoir
    We took all that we could carry but we tried to carry more

    And you know you know you know it all went wrong
    And you know you know you know it was all wrong

    We choked on street tap water well I'm gonna have to try the real thing
    I took your laugh by the collar and it knew not to swing
    Anytime I tried an honest job well the till had a hole and ha-ha
    We laughed about payin' rent 'cause the county jails they're free

    And you know you know you know it all went wrong
    And you know you know you know it was all wrong

    Deep water, deep water
    Senseless denial
    I went down like a rag doll as you would, child
    Deep water, deep water
    Senseless denial
    I went down like a rag doll as you would, child

    Oh, lucky lucky lucky lucky me again
    I said it looks like I've got to use my feet again
    Well I just spent my last one-hundred dollars
    God I'll pay my bill again

    Oh, I don't care
    Oh, how I just don't care

    Deep water, deep water
    Senseless denial
    I went down like a rag doll shooken and shy
    Deep water, deep water
    Senseless denial
    I went down like a rag doll rat of a child

    Well king rat has me on his list again
    I can never be on the fence again
    I found out it's all loud
    Open like an organ and it
    talk, talk, talk, talk again
    he promised me that when I cheated him
    But I could open my eye well...
    lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky,
    lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again

    Deep water, deep water
    Senseless denial
    I got fed like a fish, full of open smiles
    Deep water, deep water
    Senseless denial
    I got fed like a fish on the cardboard smiles

    Well Well...
    What do you have to say for yourself?
    I said, well well
    Well?
    I said well, well, well, well!

    Lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again.
    I hardly knew I should use my feet again
    What do you have to say for yourself?
    What do you have to say for yourself?
