The View by Modest Mouse.

Your gun went off

Well, you shot off your mouth

And look where it got you

My mouth runs on too

Shouts from both sides

"Well, we’ve got the land

But they’ve got the view”

Well, now here’s the clue

Life, it rents us

And yeah, I hope it put plenty on you

Well, I hope mine did too

As life gets longer, awful feels softer

Well, it feels pretty soft to me

And if it takes shit to make bliss

Then I feel pretty blissfully

Your gun went off

Well, you shot off your mouth

And look where it got you

My mouth runs on too

Shouts from both sides

"Well, we’ve got the land

But they’ve got the view”

Well, now here’s the clue

We are fixed right where we stand

Life, it rents us

And yeah, I hope it put plenty on you

Well, I hope mine did too

We are fixed right where we are

As life gets longer, awful feels softer

Well, it feels pretty soft to me

And if it takes shit to make bliss

Well, I feel pretty blissfully

For every invention made how much time did we save?

We’re not much farther than we were in the cave

As life gets longer, awful feels softer

Well, it feels pretty soft to me

And if it takes shit to make bliss

Well, I feel pretty blissfully

If life’s not beautiful without the pain

Well, I’d just rather never ever even see beauty again

Well, as life gets longer, awful feels softer

And it feels pretty soft to me

For every good deed done there is a crime committed

We are fixed

For every step ahead we could have just been seated

We are fixed

As life gets longer, awful feels softer

Well, it feels pretty soft to me

And if it takes shit to make bliss

Well, I feel pretty blissfully

We are fixed, we are fixed

We are fixed right where we stand
