Barnacles
Ugly Casanova Lyrics


I don't really need to see
So I don't need to see so I'll paint
I don't know, I'll paint it black
I don't need to see
I don't see how you see out of your window
I don't need to see, I'll paint mine black
I don't know me and you don't know you
So we fit so good together
'Cause I knew you like I knew myself
We clung on like barnacles on a boat
Even though the ship sinks you know you can't let go
I was talking like two hands knocking
Yelling 'let me in, let me in, please come out.'
Black glass, dirt-based soap,
Tell yourself what you know.
My friends, oh my friends,
Bury your head I'll help you bury your plans.
Hard hit, hard to miss, problems are what a problem is.
My light came up quick, call it your asterisk,
Buried like boys in a boys first book of the stars
Saw it as satellite
Constant unblinking as
Buried in the bottom of a bottom of a brackish lake

Lyrics:

I don't really need to see
so I don't need to see so I'll paint
I don't know, I'll paint it black
I don't need to see
I don't see how you see out of your window
I don't need to see, I'll paint mine black
I don't need to see
I don't see how you see out of your window
I don't need to see, I'll paint mine black

I don't know me and
you don't know you
so we fit so good together
'cause I knew you like I knew myself

We clung on like
barnacles on a boat
Even though the ship sinks
you know you can't let go

I was talkin' like
two hands knockin' yelling
"Let me in! Let me in! Please come out!"

Black grass, dirt-based soap
Tell yourself what you know
My friends, oh, my friends
Bury your head, I'll help you bury your hands
Hard hit, hard to miss
Problems are what a problem is

My light, it came up quick
call it your asterisk
Buried in a boy's, in a boy's first book of the stars

Saw it as satellite
Constant unblinking eyes
Buried at the bottom, at the bottom of a brackish lake

I don't really need to see
so I don't need to see so I'll paint
I don't know, I'll paint it black
I don't need to see
I don't see how you see out of your window
I don't need to see, I'll paint mine black
I don't need to see
I don't see how you see out of your window
I don't need to see, I'll paint mine black

my teenage years were spent listening to this album and every other album modest mouse has made.
they have made such an impact on my life its amazing.
you're never alone when listening to them.

eric

same, but i feel more alone than ever listening now as an adult

chris cox

Same, first time to hear this one in a few months and I almost feel high just soaking in it. Nothing like the MM experience. Found them when my ex wife and i were first starting to drift apart.. even though the ship sank, we knew we cant let go... prolonging the pain really.

Closest band to affect me like this band would be Cursive, The Ugly Organ and earlier. Got a little too Poppy after that.

People like Isaac make me feel less alone. Seeing this many comments makes me feel even less alone. This song is pure art

Moses McGill

So cool that people are still replying to this. I think that the trick to being alone is liking the company you have.

Not alone, friend.
