Modest Mouse

Modest Mouse is an American indie rock band who were formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington, by singer/lyricist/guitarist Isaac Brock, drummer Jeremiah Green, and bassist Eric Judy. Since their 1996 debut album, This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About, their lineup has centered around Brock, Green and Judy. Guitarist Johnny Marr (formerly of The Smiths) joined the band in May 2006, along with percussionist Joe Plummer (formerly of the Black Heart Procession) and multi-instrumentalist Tom Peloso, to work on the album We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. Guitarist Jim Fairchild joined the band in February 2009. Their name is derived from a passage from the Virginia Woolf story "The Mark on the Wall" which reads, "I wish I could hit upon … more »

The good times are killing me. 
Here we go! 

Got dirt, got air, got water and I know you can carry on. 
Shrug off shortsighted false excitement and oh what can I say? 
Have one, have twenty more "one mores" and oh it does not relent. 

The good times are killing me. 

Kick butt buzz-cut dickheads 
Who didn't like what I said. 
The good times are killing me. 
Jaws clenched tight we talked all night, 
Oh but what the hell did we say? 
The good times are killing me. 

The good times are killing me. 
The good times are killing me. 

Fed up with all that LSD. 
Need more sleep than coke or methamphetamines. 
Late nights with warm, warm whiskey. 
I guess the good times they were all just killing me. 

Got dirt, got air, got water and I know you can carry on. 
The good times are killing me. 
Enough hair of the dog to make myself an entire rug. 
The good times are killing me. 
Have one, have twenty more "one mores" and oh it does not relent. 
The good times are killing me. 
Shit-kicker city slickers who all wanted me dead. 
The good times are killing me. 

Get sucked in and stuck in late nights 
With more folks that I don't know. 
The good times are killing me. 

The good times are killing me. 
The good times are killing me. 
The good times are killing me. 
The good times are killing me. 
The good times are killing me. 
The good times are killing me. 
The good times are killing me. 
The good times are killing me.
