third planet

October 5, 2010

i know i keep talking about modest mouse songs, but please have a look at this painting (by magritte), and then have a look at those lyrics and the song.

i truly appreciate this band’s ability to challenge me.

the third planet is sure that they’re being watched
by an eye in the sky that can’t be stopped
when you get to the promised land
you’re going to shake that eye’s hand

well, outside naked, shivering, looking blue
from the cold sunlight that’s reflected off the moon
baby cum angels fly around you
reminding you we used to be three and not just two

and that’s how the world began
and that’s how the world will end
