Well see what you want to see. You should see it all. Well take what you want from me.
Modest Mouse : a pretty good read
You deserve it all. Nine times out of ten our hearts just get dissolved. Well I want a better place or just a better way to fall. But one time out of ten, everything is perfect for us all. Here we go! If God controls the land and disease, Keeps a watchful eye on me, If he's really so damn mighty, My problem is I can't see, Well who would want to be?
Evil home stereo, what good songs do you know? Evil me, oh yeah I know, what good curves can you throw?
Well all that icing and all that cake, I can't make it to your wedding, but I'm sure I'll be at your wake. You were talk, talk, talk, talkin' in circles that day, When you get to the point make sure that I'm still awake, OK?
Went to bed and didn't see Why every day turns out to be A little bit more like Bukowski. Bukowski song meanings. Add your thoughts Comments. General Comment It's very straightforward. He's talking to religious people and how they get so much into their religion they are unable to listen to other point of views.
He also attacks God on how it's a hypocrite. In some traditions, if you are not of Christian faith, you cannot attend the wedding of a Christian couple getting married.
modest mouse lyrics | Charles Bukowski - American author
The narrator asserts that even though he's not invited to the wedding, he'll be at the wake, when they're dead and nothing matters. On Bukowski: This is why the song is named so: "For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system.
We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us. Note that Modest Mouse isn't calling Bukowski an asshole, he's calling God one because of it being a control freak.

Evoking the lore of Robert Johnson and Kurt Cobain, Goldsher attributes MM's allure partly to a "mythical" reputation Brock designed for himself as a notorious jerk to his fans as well as a starving-artist martyr. Goldsher cuts to the quick of the indie-rock scenester's antisellout, "hipper-than-thou" ethos in a style that's accessible and downright funny. While his reliance on secondhand sources and long-winded ruminations on individual songs may frustrate fans eager for new insight into the band member, Goldsher's book is an aptly titled jaunt through the MM story.
