I'm not sleeping tonight.

I’m afraid the whales will get me.

Modest Mouse’s King Rat:

Well! [x4]

We spun like birds on fire right down towards the residence and I,
I took all that I desired, even crooks have to pay the rent.
We swam like rats on fire right, right down the reservoir,
We took all that we could carry but we tried to carry more.

And you know you know you know it all went wrong.
And you know you know you know it was all wrong.

We choked on straight tap water well I’m gonna have to try the real thing.
I took your laugh by the collar and it knew not to swing.
Anytime I tried an honest job well the till had a hole and ha-ha,
We laughed about payin’ rent ’cause the county jails they’re free.

And you know you know you know it all went wrong.
And you know you know you know it was all wrong.

Deep Water, Deep Water,
Senseless Denial,
I went down like a rag doll as you would, child.
Deep Water, Deep Water,
Senseless Denial,
I went down like a rag doll as you would, child.

Oh, lucky lucky lucky lucky me again.
I said it looks like I’ve got to use my feet again,
Well I just spent my last one-hundred dollars
God, I’ll pay my bill again.

Oh, I don’t care.
Oh, how I just don’t care.

Deep Water, Deep Water,
Senseless Denial,
I went down like a rag doll shooken and shy.
Deep Water, Deep Water,
Senseless Denial,
I went down like a rag doll rat of a child.

Well King rat has me on his list again,
I can never be on the fence again.
I found out it’s all loud,
Open like an organ and it
talk, talk, talk, talk again.
He promised me that when I cheated him,
But I could open my eye well…
lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky,
lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again.

Deep Water, Deep Water,
This Senseless Denial,
I got fed like a fish, full of open smiles.
Blue Water, Deep Water,
Oh Senseless Denial,
I got fed like a fish on the cardboard smiles.

Well Well…
What do you have to say for yourself?
I said, well, well,
Well?
I said well, well, well, well!

Lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again.
I hardly knew I should use my feet again,
What do you have to say for yourself?
What do you have to say for yourself?

That’s crazy man.
