​Beach Side Property

This song is by Modest Mouse and appears on the EP Interstate 8 (1996) and on the album This is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About (1996).

"Wow", said the broken Californian, down
On the beach that used to be by the beach
Town hasn't moved but it's getting closer, losing ground
Making better views and close relaxing sounds
Ground sure don't like the way it's treated, so now
It's moving back to the sea
Plan to hitch a ride with the river
'Cause deep down plumbing life is too cramped for me

I got wood legs and bow legs, and no legs at all
Damn, would you take a collect call?
Oh no, I don't understand
I got poor eyes and sore eyes, and no eyes at all
Damn, would you like to take the fall?
Oh no, I don't like this plan
It was a staple of brass tacks and wax backs
Oh yeah, a message left on the forehead of God

Sent sealed and signed by the saints
Who sang this song, this song
This song

We're going union like they say
We'll buy the congregation
Then one day, you'll find us sitting in your chair
With big ideas of stocks and shares
We're going union

We're going union like they say
We'll buy the congregation
Then one day, you'll find us sitting in your chair
With big ideas of stocks and shares
We're going union
