The View

Modest Mouse

Your gun went off
Well you shot off your mouth and look where it got you
My mouth runs on too

Shouts from both sides
"Well we've got the land but they've got the view!"
Well now here's the clue

Life it rents us
And yeah I hope it put plenty on you
Well I hope mine did too

As life gets longer, awful feels softer
Well it feels pretty soft to me
And if it takes shit to make bliss
Then I feel pretty blissfully

Your gun went off
Well you shot off your mouth and look where it got you
My mouth runs on too

Shouts from both sides
"Well we've got the land but they've got the view!"
Well now here's the clue

We are fixed right where we stand

Life it rents us
And yeah I hope it put plenty on you
Well I hope mine did too

We are fixed right where we are

As life gets longer, awful feels softer
Well if feels pretty soft to me
And if it takes shit to make bliss
Well I feel pretty blissfully

For every invention made how much time did we save?
We're not much farther than we were in the cave

As life gets longer, awful feels softer
And it feels pretty soft to me
And if it takes shit to make bliss
Well I feel pretty blissfully

If life's not beautiful without the pain
Well I'd just rather never ever even see beauty again
Well as life gets longer, awful feels softer
And it feels pretty soft to me

For every good deed done there is a crime committed
We are fixed
For every step ahead we could have just been seated
We are fixed

As life gets longer, awful feels softer
Well it feels pretty soft to me
And if it takes shit to make bliss
Well I feel pretty blissfully

We are fixed
We are fixed
We are fixed right where we stand
