Modest Mouse – Bankrupt On Selling lyrics

Well all the apostles
They're sitting in swings
And I'd sell off my savior
For a set of new rings
And some sandles
With the style of straps that cling best to the era
So all of the businessers
And unlimited kill
Where they buy and they sell
And they sell all their
Trash to each other
But they're sick of it all
And they're bankrupt on selling
And all of the angels
They'd sell off yer soul
For a set of new wings and anything gold
They remember
The people they loved their old friends
And I've seen through'em all
Seen through'em all
And seen through most everything
All the people you knew were the actors
All the people you knew were the actors
Well, I'll go to college
And I'll learn some big words
And I'll talk real loud
Goddamn right I'll be heard
You'll remember the guys
That said all those big words
They must've learned in college
And it took a long time
But I came clean with myself
I come clean out of love with my lover
I still love her
Loved her more when she used to be sober and I was kinder
