3rd Planet Lyrics

by Modest Mouse

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
Ive got this thing that I consider my only art of fucking people over
My boss just quit the job says hes goin' out to find blind
Spots and hell do it

The 3rd planet is sure that theyre being watched by an
Eye in the sky that cant be stopped
When you get to the promise land
You're gonna shake that yes hand

Your heart felt good it was drippin' pitch and made of wood
And your hands and knees felt cold and wet on the grass to me
Well outside naked, shiverin' looking blue
From the cold sunlight thats reflected off the moon
Baby come, angels fly around you reminding you we used
To be three and not just two

And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end
Thats how the world began
Thats how the world will end

Well a 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the
Water, didnt know then was it a son was it a daughter
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies
And another had been found another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the Atlantic and how

And the Universe is shaped exactly like the earth if you go
Straight long enough youll end up where you were
The Universe is shaped exactly like the Earth if you go
Straight long enough youll end up where you were

And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end
Thats how the world began
Thats how the world will end

Your heart felt good it was drippin' pitch and made of wood
And your hands and knees felt cold and wet on the grass to me
Well outside naked, shiverin' looking blue
From the cold sunlight thats reflected off the moon
Baby come, angels fly around you reminding you we used
To be three and not just two

And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end

Well a 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the
Water, didnt know then was it a son was it a daughter
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies and
Another had been found another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the Atlantic and how

And the universe is shaped exactly like the earth if you go
Straight long enough youll end up where you were
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth if you go
Straight long enough youll end up where you were

And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end
And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
Ive got this thing that I consider my only art of fucking people over
