Modest Mouse - Japanese Trees Lyrics


Oh yeah, well I’m not even guessing what your plans may be
Yeah, you’re twisted and you’re bent like you’re a Japanese tree
Those are pretty long arms driving from the backseat
Lay it on heavy like you’re sand on a beach
Yes, you’re all ears, how hard could it be?
A cat in the grass, an «eaves» in the eaves
Walkin’ in my head like I’m shoes on your feet
You’re twisted and you’re bent like you’re a Japanese tree

Well, you need a place to go
And I have a place to leave
We’ll split the gasoline
And sleep in the backseat
When can we leave?
Why can’t we leave?
When can we leave?

Oh, you got it figured out
And I’ll learn eventually
We’ll ditch our phones in the rest stop bathroom
When can we leave?

We have a knack for turning days into weeks
Full of pointless details, just a crease on a sleeve
You’re twisted and you’re bent like you’re a Japanese tree
Yeah, you’re twisted and you’re bent like you’re a Japanese tree

Pointless details, just a crease on a sleeve, yeah
Make up some news and then believe what you read, yeah
Lay it on heavy like you’re sand on a beach, yeah
Lay it on heavy like you’re sand on a beach, yeah

You need a place to go
And I have a place to leave
We’ll split the gasoline
We’ll sleep in the backseat
When can we leave?
When can we leave?
When can we leave?

Oh, you’ve got it figured out
And I’ll learn eventually
We ditched our phones in the rest stop bathroom
Why can’t we leave?
Why can’t we leave?
Why can’t we leave?
Why can’t we leave?

Well, you need a place to go
And I have a place to leave
So what do we need?
What do we need?
We’ll sleep in the backseat
And I’ll learn eventually
‘Cause you’ve got it figured out
So when can we leave?
We ditched our phones in the rest stop bathroom
When can we leave?
Well, you need a place to go
But where can it be?
