Bankrupt On Selling — Modest Mouse

bankrupt on selling - modest mouse

Well, all the Apostles
They’re sitting in swings
Saying, “I’d sell off my Savior
For a set of new rings
And some sandals
With the style of straps
That cling best to the era”

So, all of the businessers
In unlimited Hell
Where they buy and they sell
And they sell all their trash to each other
But they’re sick of it all
And they’re bankrupt on selling

And all of the angels
They’d sell off your soul
For a set of new wings
And anything gold
They remember the people they loved
Their old friends, and I’ve
Seen through ’em all
Seen through ’em all
Seen through most everything

All the people you knew
Were the actors
All the people you knew
Were the actors

Well, I’ll go to college
And I’ll learn some big words
And I’ll talk real loud
Goddamn right, I’ll be heard
You’ll remember the guy
That said all those big words
He must’ve learned in college

And it took a long time
‘Til I came clean with myself
I come clean out of love with my lover
I still love her
Loved her more
When she used to be sober
And I was kinder
