      Modest Mouse - Missed the Boat Música y Letra

      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 knew 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 laugh all the way to hell
      Saying yes, this is a fine promotion
      Oh, and I laugh all the way to hell
      
      Of course everyone goes crazy
      Over such and such and such
      We made ourselves a pillar
      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
      But we just built that good God dam
      
      Oh, and I know this of myself
      I assume as much for other people
      Oh, and I know this of myself
      We've listened more to life's end gong
      Than the sound of life's sweet bliss
      
      Was it ever worth it?
      Was there all that much to gain?
      Well we knew we missed the boat
      And we'd already missed the plane
      We didn't read the invite
      We just dance at our wake
      All our favorites were playing
      So we could shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
      
      Tiny curtains open and we heard the tiny clap of little hands
      A tiny man would tell a little joke and get a tiny laugh from all the folks
      Sitting drifting around in bubbles and thinking it was us that carried them
      When we finally got it figured out that we had truly missed the boat
      
      Oh, and we carried it all so well
      As if we got a new position
      Oh, and we owned all the tools ourselves
      But not the skills to make a shelf with
      Oh, what useless tools ourselves
