Guilty Cocker Spaniels - Modest Mouse
Well I took off running at the greatest speed
I didn't bother looking to either side of me
Oh, I did not see, I just did not see what was really going on
Oh, the trees had stopped and the skyline rose
Extanging comfort for more fashionable clothes
I'd left the hills at this point in time
To run on treadmills in a perfect line
Salad days add up to daily sh_t
Sparking imagination till the sparks did quit
And if this is fun why'm I so bored with it?
Well I'll probably never know
Guilty cocker spaniels eating table scraps
When we rolled over, how our masters clapped
It felt so good we wanted more of that
But when the program failed they defensively laughed
Sayin' "We did things just how you asked,
Don't try taking us to task.
You didn't buy a face, nope just a mask,
So HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!"
I drew a blank, we put it in a frame
Wait, what? You're winning?
You didn't say this was a game
Well I guess I just have to play and play till I'm out of cash
Before I could spit it out
I guess the words had burnt my mouth, what can I say?
Worst of all I laid it out
So you could take it out of context anyway
We said all along we deserved every bit
And mostly we knew that the supply would quit
But we got going and going and just went till everybody lost their minds
Directly behind being ahead of the time
But don't worry, you'll fall right in line
Yup, everythings just fine, fine, fine
No one's getting blamed this time
Blameless, oh blameless, can we find a way to blame our way out?
Well I post dated the eulogy for every blames body now
We are blamelessly teething on much more than we need now, now now
Well we're all getting blamed cuz everyone knew
