Modest Mouse - Never Fuck A Spider On The Fly Lyrics


The air is whizzing by, the spider watches fly
And at best you could say you were obliged
Well let me sing the spider song, the words are too, too long
And it scares me just to say I’ll carry on, the carrion
It takes a lot of pay no mind with your cellular gadgets on
Oh, our lives don’t seem to float, you think you know

You just don’t know why you should never fuck a spider on the fly
Well if you fuck a spider on the fly
You’re gonna, gonna, gonna get the news
Yeah there’s a lot of web
Sure there’s enough for you

Well the last thing I could say won’t be spoken anyways
And as I got to move
Well there’s a lotta things I shoulda done
I shoulda, oughta, probably, oughta do

So you should never fuck a spider on the fly
If you do you’re gonna find out soon
There’s still some web for you
Whatcha gonna do?

It doesn’t matter what they don’t know
They really, really want you to know
So they’ll tap, tap, tap, no matter where you go, oh

Peeping Toms at every window
Dangling a leash for your throat
Peeping and tapping, looking into every single window, oh

Oh I don’t care for politics and it doesn’t care for me
I don’t like being watched by the TV
Well there’s a lot of news, a lot of news, a lot of news, a lot of news
And it all works as a web for you

Well you should never fuck a spider on the fly
If you really, really want to move
‘Cause we’re all food
And there’s the web for you
Well if you fuck a spider on the fly you’re gonna, gonna, gonna get the news
There’s a lot of webs
Yeah there’s a web for you

Peeping Toms at every window
Dangling a leash for your throat
Peeping and smudging, looking into every window, oh

It doesn’t matter what they don’t know
They really, really want you to know
So they’ll tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, on every window, oh

They zoom in, you can’t zoom out, oh your head’s my house now
I live in every corner of your mind, I ain’t coming out
I have a lot to do, to become you
Well I ain’t taking orders, but they’re still givin’ them out
I’m lost over international waters in the cloud
Yeah, I got, got, got, got, got, got, got some news

Well you should never fuck a spider on the fly
If you really, really want to move
There’s a lot of webs
And there’s a web for you
Well if you fuck a spider on the fly
You’re gonna, gonna, gonna get the news
There’s a lot of webs
Yeah there’s a web for you
