whale song lyrics – modest mouse

“whale song”

i guess i am a scout
so i should find a way out
so everyone can find a way out

they keep us in
to pull us out
i’m rising up
wish i was sinking down
and it’s not like
there was warning
we were happy
and it’s not like
there was mourning
in the warning

i know i am a scout
i should’ve found a way out
so everyone can find a way out

i know i am a scout
i should’ve found a way out
so everyone can find a way out

instead of seeing a neighbor out
god, i wish i would’ve found a way out
it’s the last time
we were happy
ever happy

i know i was a scout
i should’ve found a way out
so everyone could find a way out

well i know i was a scout
i should’ve found a way out
so everyone could find a way out

well i know i was a scout
i should’ve found a way out
so everyone could find a way out
