Doin' The Cockroach Lyrics - Modest Mouse

Review The Song (3)

I was in heaven
I was in hell
Believe in neither
But fear them as well
This one's a doctor
This one's a lawyer
This one's a cash fiend
taking your money
Back of the metro
Ride on the greyhound
Drunk on the Amtrak
Please shut up
He was a talker
Talking about TV
Please shut up
sponsored links
This one's a crazer
Daydreaming disaster
The origin of junk food
Rutting through garbage
Tasty but worthless
Dogs eat their own shit
We're doing the cockroach yeah
Doin the cockroach yeah
Doin the cockroach yeah (alright, not bad) (x3)
One year
Twenty years
Forty years
Fifty years
Down the road in your life
You'll look in the mirror
And say, "My parents are still alive."
You move your mouth
You shake your tongue
You vibrate my eardrums
You're saying words
But you know I ain't listening
You're walking down the street
Your face
Your lips
Your hips
Your eyes
They meet
You're not hungry though
Well late last winter
Down below the equator
They had a summer that would make you blister
Oh my mind is all made up
So I'll have to sleep in it (x3)

Awesome song | Reviewer: Elle | 12/1/2008

This is by far my favorite Modest Mouse song. They have so much quality material that it's hard to single a song out, but this song's lyrics really hit home with me and I love how climactic it is. Not only that, but sometimes when they play it live they do an amazing extended version that just blows my mind.

i love it | Reviewer: squirrly | 5/22/2008

this song is one of my favorites from them
it took a while but it definately grew on me
its one of those songs that you must have patience for
you have to be able to see the natural rythm to it
the building up of energy and emotions throughout the length of the song..

one that will surely get you excited

Amazing Rhythm Guitar | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/10/2007
