​Other People's Lives

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

This is how it seems to be

Other people's lives seem more interesting 'cause they ain't mine
Other people's lives seem more interesting 'cause they ain't mine
Other people's lives seem more interesting 'cause they ain't mine
Other people's lives seem much more interesting

Well, I'm fed up and I need to go
Out of existence or just down the road forever
Well, late, late night on the side of the road
I'm out of gas and I should have known better
Well, a guy shows up, he's 25 years old
Always steals his kisses, such a mama's boy
He said, and that's what he said
He'd been in the army and he did some speed
He went down to Thailand and he did the deed
Oh yeah, he did it for the boys
Well the cops showed up way damn late
I was excited but usually I hate to see them

Other people's lives seem more interesting 'cause they ain't mine
Other people's lives seem more interesting 'cause they ain't mine
Other people's lives seem more interesting 'cause they ain't mine
Other people's lives seem more interesting 'cause they ain't mine

Late, late night on the side of the road
I'm out of gas and I should have known better, yeah
I'm fed up and I need to go
Out of existence or just down the road forever, yeah (OH Yeah!)
Well, a guy shows up, he's 25 years old
Always steals his kisses, such a mama's boy
He said, and that's what he said
The cops showed up way damn late
I was excited, but usually I hate to see them, yeah
(Indistinct mumbling)
Over joyed out of sight, on the road, out of road, going down out of gas
Out of road, out of car, out of everything at last
Out of where you're talking you got yourself a crazy walk, I said bowlegged
Or maybe you just might be peg-legged or something like that

Late, late night on the side of the road
I'm out of gas and I should have known better, oh yeah
The cops showed up way damn late
I was excited but usually I hate to see them yeah
(Indistinct mumbling)
