​Grey Ice Water

This song is by Modest Mouse and appears on the compilation album Building Nothing Out of Something (1999).

You're standing by the grey ice water
Out in the wind, above the ground, out in the weather
You had yourself a crazy lover
Becoming frozen, trying hard to forget her

You got a job up in Alaska
It's easy to save what the cannery pays
'Cause there ain't nowhere to spend it

You're standing by the grey ice water
Out in the wind, above the ground, out in the weather
You had yourself a crazy lover
Becoming frozen, trying hard to forget her

You took the path of least resistance
On the phone cutting out talking
Short to long distance

At home on a boat, at home it's a fish trap
At home on a boat, it's a fish trap
At home on a boat, it's a fish trap

On the arctic glass
