Modest Mouse – Dark Center Of The Universe lyrics

I might disintegrate into the thin air if you'd like
I'm not the dark center of the universe like you thought [x2]
Well, it took a lot of work to be the ass that I am
And I'm real damn sure that anyone can, equally easily fuck you over
Well, died sayin' something, but didn't mean it
Everyone's life ends, but no one ever completes it
Dry or wet ice, they both melt and you're equally cheated
Well, it took a lot of work to be the ass that I am
And I'm really damn sure that anyone can, equally easily fuck you over
Well, an endless ocean landin' on an endless desert
Well, it's funny as hell, but no one laughs when they get there
If you can't see the thin air than why the hell should you care?
Well, it took a lot of work to be the ass that I am
And I'm really damn sure that anyone can, equally easily fuck you over
Well, I'm sure you'd tell me you got nothing to say
But our voices shook hands the other day
If you can't see the thin air what the hell is in the way?
[repeated lyrics]
Well, God sayin' somethin', but he didn't mean it
Everyone's life ends, but no one ever completes it
Dry or wet ice, they both melt and you're equally cheated
Well, it took a lot of work to be the ass that I am
And I'm really damn sure that anyone can, equally easily fuck you over
I'm sure you'll tell me you got nothin' to say
But our voices shook hands the other day
If you can't see the thin air then what the hells in your way?

    I always though "an endless ocean landing on an endless desert" was "Well, antisocial and I'm on anesthetic." Not sure which version is correct but I like my version better. As for the actual meaning of the song, I think it's about having everyone think you're an a**hole. For example "I'm not the dark center of the universe like you thought." Not everything bad revolves around the writer. Also, I'm pretty sure that "It took a lot of work to be the ass that I am" is sarcastic. It sounds like something you'd say when you're being attacked from all sides. "Anyone can, equally easily fuck you over" is the songwriter saying that he isn't any worse than anyone else. There are some lyrics that can only be explained by Isaac, because he's f**king insane and he sometimes writes stuff that only makes sense to him.
    But overall, the song is about having everyone around you think that you're an a**hole, and trying to refute that.
