Missed the Boat

Missed the Boat
Was it ever worth it?
Was there all that much to gain?
Well, we knew we’d missed the boat
And we’d already missed the plane
We didn’t read the invite
We just dance at our own wake
All our favorites were a-playing
So we could shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

Tiny curtains open
And we heard the tiny clap of little hands
A tiny man would tell a little joke
And get a tiny laugh from all the folks
Sittin’, driftin’ around in bubbles, and
Thinkin’ it was us that carried them
When we finally got it figured out
That we had truly missed the boat

Oh, and I know this of myself
I assume as much for other people
Oh, and I know this of myself
We’ve listened more to life’s end-gong than
The sound of life’s sweet bells
Modest Mouse – Missed the Boat

If you haven’t heard this song before, I urge you to take a listen. The music/melody is sublime and the lyrics…well, you just have to listen.(I rearranged the lyrics up top a bit.)
