Missed The Boat Lyrics

Artist: Modest Mouse
Album: We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank

while we're on the subject, could we change the subject now
i was knocking on your ear's door but you were always out
looking towards the future we were begging for the past
well we know we had the good things but those never seemed to last
oh please just last
everyone's unhappy, everyone's ashamed
well we all just got caught looking at somebody else's page
well nothing ever went quite exactly as we planned
our ideas held no water but we used them like a dam

oh and we carried it all so well
as if we got a new position
oh and i'll laugh all the way to hell
say yes this is a fine promotion
oh and i'll laugh all the way to hell

of course everyone goes crazy over such and such and such
we made ourselves a pillar but we just used it as a crutch
we were certainly uncertain at least i'm pretty sure i am
well we didn't need the water we just built that good goddamn

oh and i know that i sold myself
i've seen as much from other people
oh and i know that i sold myself
we've enlisted our lives in your name
for the sound of life's sweet bliss

was it ever worth it was there all that much to gain
well we knew we'd missed the boat and we'd already missed the plane
we didn't read the invite we just danced it all away
all our favorites were playing so we could shake shake shake shake
tiny curtains opened and we heard the tiny clap of little hands
and tiny men would tell a little joke and get a tiny laugh from all the folks
and drifting around on bubbles and thinking it was us that carried them
when we finally got it figured out that we'd truly missed the boat

oh and we carried it all so well
as if we got a new position
oh and we own all the tools ourselves
but not the skills to make a show with
oh what useless tools ourselves
