i came as a rat lyrics – modest mouse

well i ain’t sure, but i been told
he’s baking cakes inside our souls
stayed awake, took a nap
got myself my bottles back
i’m breakin’ them out on the street
walkin’ around in my bare feet
i do not need you to tell me that i am not a cat
i caught a ride, we caught some air
he’s never gonna cut his hair
it takes more time to make a fake
we night swam down in the lake
washed the dirt off our intentions
prattle on ’bout bad inventions
i came as ice, i came as a wh*r*
i came as advice that came too short
i came as gold, i came as cr*p
i came clean and i came as a rat
it takes a long time, but god dies too
but not before he’ll stick it to you
well i don’t know, but i been told
you never die and you never grow old
uh oh!
i came as a call, i came as flat
i came too soon so i came back
i came as flowers, i came as nice
i came as dirt and i came as its price
it takes a long time, but god dies too
but not before he’ll stick it to you
i don’t know, but i been told
you never die and you never grow old
uh oh!
