MODEST MOUSE lyrics - Everywhere and His Nasty Parlor Tricks

I Came As A Rat (Long Walk Off A Short Dock)

Original and similar lyrics
Well I ain't sure but I been told He's baking cakes inside our souls stayed awake took a nap got myself my bottles back I'm breaking them out in the street Walkin' 'round in my bare feet I do not need you to tell me that I am not a cat I cause a ride we caught some air He's never gonna cut his hair It takes more time to make a fake we night swam down in the lake washed the dirt off our intentions prattle on 'bout bad inventions I came as ice I came as a whore I came as advice that came too short I came as gold I came as crap I came clean and I came as a rat It takes a long time but God dies too But not before he'll stick it to you Well I ain't sure but I been told You never die and you never grow old I came as call I came as flat I came too soon so I came back I came as flowers I came as nice I came as dirt and I came as it's price It takes a long time but God dies too But not before he'll stick it to you I don't know but I been told you never die and you never grow old

Master Song

LEONARD COHEN "Songs Of Leonard Cohen"
I believe that you heard your master sing when I was sick in bed. I suppose that he told you everything that I keep locked away in my head. Your master took you travelling, well at least that's what you said. And now do you come back to bring your prisoner wine and bread You met him at some temple, where they take your clothes at the door. He was just a numberless man in a chair who'd just come back from the war. And you wrap up his tired face in your hair and he hands you the apple core. Then he touches your lips now so suddenly bare of all the kisses we put on some time before. And he gave you a German Shepherd to walk with a collar of leather and nails, and he never once made you explain or talk about all of the little details, such as who had a worm and who had a rock, and who had you through the mails. Now your love is a secret all over the block, and it never stops not even when your master fails. And he took you up in his aeroplane, which he flew without any hands, and you cruised above the ribbons of rain that drove the crowd from the stands. Then he killed the lights in a lonely Lane and, an ape with angel glands, erased the final wisps of pain with the music of rubber bands. And now I hear your master sing, you kneel for him to come. His body is a golden string that your body is hanging from. His body is a golden string, my body has grown numb. Oh now you hear your master sing, your shirt is all undone. And will you kneel beside this bed that we polished so long ago, before your master chose instead to make my bed of snow Your eyes are wild and your knuckles are red and you're speaking far too low. No I can't make out what your master said before he made you go. Then I think you're playing far too rough for a lady who's been to the moon; I've lain by this window long enough to get used to an empty room. And your love is some dust in an old man's cough who is tapping his foot to a tune, and your thighs are a ruin, you want too much, let's say you came back some time too soon. I loved your master perfectly I taught him all that he knew. He was starving in some deep mystery like a man who is sure what is true. And I sent you to him with my guarantee I could teach him something new, and I taught him how you would long for me no matter what he said no matter what you'd do. I believe that you heard your master sing while I was sick in bed, I'm sure that he told you everything I must keep locked away in my head. Your master took you travelling, well at least that's what you said, And now do you come back to bring your prisoner wine and bread

It Takes A Long Time

JOHN NOLAN "Height"
Well, they dragged me from the party, kicking and screaming, Clawing at the carpet, chewing up the scenery and talking to my friends with no regard for decency. I couldn't tell you what I did or what it meant to me, But I keep finding all these pieces, and soon they start to form a picture. and I can understand what I've done. But it takes a long time to understand why. You made it home, but I was left on the road to sing songs, drink hard to fight fatigue and the cold, Sleepwalking through the days Just waiting till the clock says it's time to let go. Till it's time to give up again and pretend That I'm not bound by habit, I'm not a slave to my needs. I choose to let go, so I must be in control. This must be who I wanna be. But it takes a long time to understand why. It takes a long time to understand why. Constant effort, constant concentration, Constant concern, constant contemplation, Constantly checking my tone for accuracy. I'm constantly defining my inability. It takes a long time to understand why. You know it takes a long to understand why. It takes a long time.

It Takes You No Time To Get Here

ROXETTE "Room Service"
Why don't you take the rest of the day off You do deserve a break Follow that road, it ain't long Just cross that silver lake Yea, pass the pond, the off-white fence When you see the mailbox to the left you've made it all right, No way to go wrong All you do is blow that horn It takes you no time to get here Just drive out of town today It takes you no time to get here and when You've arrived you might as well stay You might as well stay Why don't you leave your desk for a short while You do deserve some time Enjoying the other side of life you forgot to memorize Stay in the sun, reach for the moon Make a little love in the afternoon You're doing all right, no way you go wrong This is the place where you belong It takes you no time No time to get here

Siamese Twins

An Pierlé
Siamese twins are separated They couldn't stand themselves no more They hesitated for a long time They've had their doubts but now they're sure They are sure Summer was the cause of so much trouble in the fall they didn't really talk no more in the wintertime they thought their frozen hearts would certainly melt in the springtime But of course. There wasn't warmth enough for both For both Played the happy freaks for a long time Saw enough sanguinary public for a long time. I've been throwing up stones, throwing up for a long time Played in secondhand circus side shows Far too long a time. And though she falls and begs for more. I'm sure we will never be The way we were Before.

Long Time Coming

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "The Wild, the Innocent and The E-street shuffle"
Out where the creek turns shallow and sandy And the moon comes skimmin' away the stars When mesquite comes rushin' over the hilltops Straight into my arms Straight into my arms Well I'm ridin' hard carryin' a cache of Rose's And a fresh map that I made Tonight I'm gonna give birth naked and bury my old soul And dance on it's grave And dance on it's grave It's been a long time comin', my dear It's been a long time comin', but now it's here And now it's here Well my daddy he was just a stranger Lived in a hotel downtown Well when I was a kid he was just somebody Somebody I'd see around Somebody I'd see around Well now down below and pullin' on my shirt Yeah I've got some kids of my own Well if I had one wish for you in this god forsaken world kid It'd be that your mistakes will be your own That your sins will be your own It's been a long time comin', my dear It's been a long time comin', but now it's here And now it's here Well out 'neath the arms of Cassiopeia Where the sword of Orion sweeps Well it's me and you Rosie cracklin' like crossed wires You breathin' in your sleep You breathin' in your sleep Well there's just a spark of a campfire left burnin' Two kids in a sleeping bag beside I reach beneath your shirt put my hands across your belly and feel Another one kickin' inside And I ain't gonna fuck it up this time It's been a long time comin', my dear It's been a long time comin', but now it's here It's been a long time comin', my dear It's been a long time comin', but now it's here And now it's here
