Modest Mouse

Relax your breath, lean into yourself
Here’s what I know is true
Well, the sun hasn’t left
The sea still has depth
The rain’s still wet, try not to forget
We’re not so bereft, so here’s
A bell that still rings true

There’s still something left
There’s still something left for you
You’re not wrong, things are a mess
But there’s still something left
Friendships are just a chain of texts
But there’s much more than this

I don’t know you
You don’t know me
You and I are us, you see
You and I are us, you see

Lean into your breath and
Just help yourself, well here’s
What I know is true
Well, there’s more to life than
Online dating sites
Or hell, you pick the vice, I
Know that’s not concise

There’s still so much, so
Much here left for you
‘Cause cactus bloom, trees
Leaf and root
The world is a womb, it
Ain’t just a room
Well, there’s still something left
Something left for you

Not everything is going to
Be the best
But there’s still something left
Despite the endless crush of crests
Well there’s still something else

I don’t know you
You don’t know me
You and I are us, you see
You and I are us, you see

Counting backwards from zero
The winner wastes the time
The winner wastes the time
Counting backwards from zero
The winner wastes the time
The winner wastes the time
Counting backwards from zero
The winner wastes the time
(The winner wastes the time)

I don’t know you
You don’t know me
You and I are us, you see
You and I are us, you see

[Repeat]
