Sugar Boats - Modest Mouse

This rock of ours is just some big mistake
And we will never know just where we'll go
Or where we have come from

These veins of mine are like some sort of fuse
Because when they go up in my mind
Close up my heart is amused

So

This heart of mine is just some sort of map
That doesn't care about what it's about
Or where the hell you're at

Here we go!

Well, I've been meaning to dismiss you, yeah
I have meant to dismiss you

So stand by, by by by, bye bye
Wave goodbye sugar boats
Well, I ain't getting on no fast train, yeah
I ain't getting on no stuffy train

As soon as you paint every last grain of sand
As soon as you paint every last star in the skies, skies
Wave goodbye, sugar boats

I'm swatting at mosquitoes as they're orbiting me
I've grown used to so much the list goes on
It goes on and on and on, swinging

This heart of mine is just some bugged machine
And it gets a-going and it often gets a-going and
Stops going again

This rock of ours is just some big mistake
And we will never know just where we go
Or where we have come from

This heart of mine is like some sort of book
Because when I look in, and I shouldn't look in
I see when it's my time to go

Well, I ain't getting on no fast plane, yeah
I ain't getting on no stuffy train
These sugar boats swim around and around
They sugar boats they're just fine
I'm standing on the decks so you can
I'm standing on the decks so you can
Wave bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye
Bye, bye, bye, bye

The Sugar Boats wave goodbye
