I backed my car into a cop car the other day

Well he just drove off sometimes life's ok
I ran my mouth off a bit too much oh what did I say?
Well you just laughed it off it was all ok

http://youtu.be/mFSnhpYFVSk

A fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
It was worth it just to learn some sleight-of-hand
Bad news comes don't you worry even when it lands
Good news will work its way to all them plans
We both got fired on the exactly the same day
Well we'll float on good news is on the way

And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on
Now don't you worry we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Alright don't worry we'll all float on

And we'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on
Aliright don't worry even if things end up a bit to heavy
We'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Ok don't worry we'll all float on
Even if things get heavy we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Don't you worry we'll all float on
All float on

Great lyrics, thanks for the post

Building nothing out of something

Become acquainted with the discography of Modest Mouse, you will not be disappointed.

Good ol' Norma Jean!

Bit too hardcore for my taste. Never got into the double bass pedal although I acknowledge its badassness. Isaac Broc's style comes correct, even influenced bands I've played in. Doug Martsch is another notable songwriter in the same genre. Michael I think youd like his songs too! For some reason I'm now in the mood to watch High Fidelity.

(You) [I] Can Not See (You) [Me] As [I] (You) Can by Joan of Arc one of my favorites.

Norma Jean...those thieves who stole from Seattlites:

One of the few origins of math-core.

Norma Jean > Botch

while i know this is highly subjective, I love both these bands and have listened to both extensively. While it is indisputable that Botch came first and NJ clearly draws some influence from them, I believe NJ perfected the sound and expertly blended mathcore with hardcore metal. Not to mention Norma Jean has gotten me through some of the darkest times in my life.

Anyway, kudos to the great musical tastes here on the Daily Paul.

Modest Mouse is awesome.

Peace, pot, micro-dot.

"A complex problem can rest safely on the short words of a man who knows what he is saying" -Ayn Rand

Without Botch, there is no

Norma Jean.

SAY IT!

;)

No, I love Norma Jean as well. Every new band most likely has an influence and I would say 99% of bands that come out today derive from something they heard elsewhere.

+1 for a fellow Norma Jean fan!

Flipflop paddles.

Took the bass boat out for a ride and then the motor over heated and I had to cut it off.Had to paddle back with flip flops.Always take a paddle on the boat.Great song too!

I love liberty like fresh cool air in my lungs.I love freedom like fresh cool water on my tongue.I love peace like the smooth skin of my sweet lady.And Dr.Ron Paul is the hero I believe will change the world.

These lyrics remind me of a lesson I learned early on and apply

Everyday.

I was visiting grandma and grandpa one summer with my cousins. Must have been around 12. 2 older cousins decided to go 'muddin'' in the field. In the dark. I went along, and I must say I felt very self-righteous when we got hung up on an old post sticking up out of the ground. I said "there - you see what can happen? Now you're screwed."

Cousin chuck replied "relax Chris. This is just practice for when it happens in real life."
And he was right. We walked the 500 yards back to the house, had some cookies and milk and slept soundly in our cozy down beds. Next morning they unstuck the truck and commenced muddin'.

Since that day I've said to friends and coworkers 'relax - it's only practice' many times when so-called 'adversity' strikes .

If you can get passed the decible-destroying

pitch of BTBAM and listen to the melodies/lyrics, it is nothing short of amazing talent.

These guys are musicians, not rock stars.

Here's the same band's "softer" side. This one is more tolerable to the.....untainted.

Good!

Practice for what?

What is the Real Thing?

He's the man.

to extend the metaphor, 'for real' would be

Getting hung up in the mud in the middle of nowhere with no food, water or communication tools. that would be real.

When things are looking down I say 'it's not so bad - at least you're not being hunted by crazed assassins.'

I've heard this countless times,

but never paid attention to the lyrics. Thanks, Michael!

I Really Did.

I really crashed into a cop car in 2012. It was about 6:30 AM. and I was on my way to a park with my two dogs. He went flying through the intersection and the collision left both cars demolished. Fortunately, no one was hurt, including the dogs. Insurance took care of it, but it was nerve wracking for quite awhile: court 4 times, the insurance company didn't want to pay what the town was asking for, etc. There must have been an early bird special at Dunking Donuts and he didn't want to miss it! Ha!

I came very close to the same situation. I was exiting the freeway and entering an intersection with a green light. As I came close I noticed a flash from the left as a police car with lights blazing came through at about 60 or 70 mph. Had I been half a second sooner he would have creamed me and I don't think I'd have fared well...

Beware the cult of "government"...

Big bump for my favorite band ever

Modest Mouse was my first rock concert ever in 2002. My first peak down the rabbit hole definitely happened during long drives on the backroads with nothing to think about, smoking pot and blasting The Moon and Antarctica.

This summer I saw Modest Mouse and groups of strangers were passing me joints from all directions. I asked a few people (maybe 4 or 5) if they like Ron Paul and 100% said "FUCK YEAH DUDE!"

It was a real good time.

Great song and a great band

I had the pleasure of seeing them tour KC when this album hit. This is a curious post considering I was listening to a song that got me thinking about our revolution the other night and thought of posting it to the DP.

Check out Metric and "Breathing Underwater": hard to say from the lyrics but I am optimistic. I can't help but think of all those people like myself who seem to be getting ahead but still barely making ends meet. It is also indicative of our last battle in this lifelong pursuit of liberty.

Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2cDFU_Q5Z8

I was working late one night and realized how relevant the song was describing my current state of mind but it had a positive outlook on the future. After hearing this song over a dozen times it clicked and became an awesome revelation. Things like this are a beautiful thing.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
