Modest Mouse – Medication lyrics

This is the part of me that needs medication
This is the part of me that believes in heaven
.... Thinks outer space is all dead
.... Wishes it was with it
.... 's trying to be funny
.... Loves my parents
... Thinks that ants are cavemen
.... Thinks all humans are ants
.... Learns from sitcoms
..... Means nothing
And I do-o-o-on't know
Where I could go away and you could wish that I had stayed or just
Stayed gone
And I don't know
And I don't know at all
So, out of the context and into what you meant
And you know your reasons
You don't know who you are but you know who you wanna be
I-i-i doooon't know
So you go to the library to get yourself a book and you look and you look
But you didn't find anything to read
And I do-on't know at all
Left all my kinda parts rusting and peeling
That guy was complaining as he looked at the ceiling
My nose isn't that big it looks nothing like me
We're all doctors trading sadness for numbness
Grass looks much greener but it's green-painted cement
Mayors [?] and machines now they're cleaning the pavement
You can't make dirt clean so we'll just lemon-scent it
