Modest Mouse Guilty Cocker Spaniels Lyrics

sponsored links
Well I took off running at the greatest speed
I didn't bother looking to either side of me
Well I didn't see, I just didn't see
What was really going on

The truth had stopped and the skyline rose
Exchanging 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 ****
Sparked imagination until the sparks just quit
And if this is fun, why am I so bored with it?
Well I'll probably never know

Guilty cocker spaniels eating table scraps
Well we rolled over, how our masters clapped
It felt so good we wanted more than that
But when the program failed they defensively laughed

We did things just how you asked
Don't try taking us to task
Didn't bite a face, no 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'll just have to play and play
Until I'm out of cash

Before I could spit it out
I guess the words had burnt my mouth
What can I say?

There's the thought I laid it down
So you could take it out of context
Either way

We said all along we deserve every bit
And mostly we knew that the supply would quit
But we got going, going just away with it
Until everybody lost their mind

Directly behind me and ahead of the time
But don't you worry he'll fall right in line
Yep, everything just might fly by
No ones getting blamed this time

Blame me so blameless
Can we find a way to blame our way out?
Well I postdated the eulogy
For every blameless body, nah nah

We are blamelessly teething
On much more than we need, nah nah nah
Blamelessly teething

Well we're all getting blamed
While everyone, everyone knew
Well everybody, everybody knew
