Modest Mouse - The World At Large lyrics


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've still got your words and you've got your friends
Walkin' on to another day
Work a little harder, work another way
Well, uh-uh, baby, I ain't got no plan
Well, I'll float on, maybe, would you understand
Gonna float on, maybe, would you understand
We'll all 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 onto 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?

Moths beat themselves to death against the lights
Adding their breeze to the summer nights
Outside, water like air was grey
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's 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
