Modest Mouse - Little Motel

We treat mishaps like sinking ships, and
I know that I don’t want to be out to drift
Well, I can see it in your eyes, like I taste your lips, and
They both tell me that we’re better than this

The universe works on a math equation
that never even ever really even ends in the end
Infinity spirals out creation
We’re on the tip of its tongue, and it is saying
We ain’t sure where you stand
You ain’t machines and you ain’t land
And the plants and the animals, they are linked
And the plants and the animals eat each other

I know I’ve said this before, but the odds of us actually playing ‘Freebird’ - there are no odds. That is not going to happen. I’ll - I’ll start with the first reason: We have no idea how to play ‘Freebird’.

The second reason is: in the Lovebug’s natural habitat, that would just kill him, wouldn’t it? You wouldn’t want that. He’s adorable. He is cute.

Thirdly: Even if, even if, like, some, pick your deity, whoever, came down from the heavens or wherever, the hills, wherever that deity lives and shit and blessed us with vast knowledge of ‘Freebird’ and things - we could play it backwards, we could sing it backwards, we could do all that crazy shit - we still wouldn’t do it.

If this were the make a wish foundation and you were going to die in 20 minutes, right as soon as, you know, like, just long enough for us to play ‘Freebird’, we wouldn’t play it.

And here is the end reason: The end reason is, life is too fucking short to play or hear ‘Freebird’.
