Lyrics I Live By

I don’t think I could exclusively narrow down a single motto I live by. But I’d like to say I have a song with my life ‘mottos’ in it.

Good News for People Who Love Bad News

“Paper Thin Walls”, by Modest Mouse is not only one of my favorite songs, but it’s has some lines I really admire:

“It’s been agreed, the whole world stinks/So no one’s taking showers anymore”

“Laugh hard, it’s a long way to the bank”

“Tow the line to tax the time, you know/That you don’t owe/I can’t be a fool for everyone that I don’t know”

I particularly like the last line. Maybe it’s selfish, and maybe it’s rude to ‘not give someone the chance’, but I don’t want to build relationships with people who aren’t worth it. I save alot of grief by not sucking up to people who won’t give anything back, or to people who are just fair-weather-friends. I’m not going to be a fool for someone I don’t trust and don’t have a reason to be with. I want to make relationships in my life that matter.
