Modest Mouse Paper Thin Walls Lyrics

Last updated: 03/31/2011 11:00:00 AM

These walls are paper thin
And everyone hears every little sound
Everyone's a voyeurist, they're watching me
Watch them, watch me right now
They're shakin hands, they're shakin in their shoes
Oh Lord, don't shake me down
Everyone wants two of them
And half of everyone else who's around
It's been agreed, the whole world stinks
So no one's taking showers anymore
LAUGH HARD IT'S A LONG WAYS TO THE BANK
I can't be blamed for nothin' anymore
It's been a long time since you've been around
Laugh hard it's long ways to the bank
Toe the line to tax the time, you know
That you don't owe
I can't be a fool for everyone that I don't know
These walls are paper thin
And everyone hears every little sound
Everyone's a voyeurist, they're watching me
Watch them, watch me right now
They're shakin hands, they're shakin in their shoes
Oh Lord, don't shake me down
Everyone wants two of them
And half of everyone else who's around
It's been agreed, the whole world stinks
So no one's taking showers anymore
LAUGH HARD IT'S A LONG WAYS TO THE BANK
Tow the line to tax the time, you know
That you don't owe
I can't be a fool for everyone that I don't know

I get so fed up with all the hipsters. Seriously, as an artist you WANT your music to be heard and loved. You love what you write, so should your audience. Music is an art of exclusion, and if u can't paint a picture worth looking into why do it?
Btw, his voice is "different" mostly due to a massive upgrade in recording equipment. Studio stuff in 94 is inferior to cheap home audio now...

Modest Mouse is not 'huge', hell I hadn't even heard of them till a few months ago, and I am deep into alt rock. And they haven't even changed as much as I here people saying, all tracks from 2000-present sound different but have that same elegance to them.

One of my favorite bands back in 2002-2003 was My Chemical Romance. (Back then, they where very unheard of) They 'got big' and 'changed' now they are a shity band.

Modest mouse sounds a bit different, and got more popular. They did not CHANGE shit. There is a massive deference between those two.
They worked there way into my top favorite bands in less then a month, sitting up near bands like Rush, Floyd, Iron Maiden, and the like.

This is one of my favorite songs by them. The rhythm to the vocals is astounding, and amazingly fun to sing to.

Uh... Modest Mouse is not HUGE. They didn't sell out either as so many of you idiots seem to think. There's a difference between progressing as an artist and giving up your artistic integrity for money. It's good that their albums don't all sound the same... that'd just be dull. Also having a song in one beer commercial and maybe one video on Much Music does not make you "HUGE". Besides Modest Mouse are fucking nobodies compared to the people in the popular music scene that you seem to lump them in with.



What? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/2/08

The Moon and Antarctica isn't a new album... it was released in 2000. Good News for Bad People who Love Bad News came out in 2004. You don't know what you're talking about. Anyways... Modest Mouse isn't getting big, just because you see one or two of their videos on Much Music doesn't mean that they're big.



Great song.. but | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/3/07

IMO this was on the Cd when, "they got all big". Then came good news, and if it wasn't for their very distinct and unique sound most people wouldn't even recognize Issac's voice on newer albums including The Moon And Antarctica . Not that his voice has necessarily fallen off, but it sounds different. And in that indifference... I miss old MM!!!! His voice isn't the same.



Awesome | Reviewer: Wesley | 11/13/04

One of modest mouse's best befor the got all HUGE. But people like me knew they would anyway... They should deffanatly cash in and get it all cuz they rock!
