I've Got It All (Most) Lyrics - Modest Mouse

Review The Song (7)



ive got it all most
ive got it all almost all figured out
but always when i get there
always when i get there all the pieces they just fall apart

i cant hear you
i cant hear you talk about your dreams involving me
i dont believe
i dont believe that they are any sort of prophecy at all

what a shock its mr. sweet and awful
don't look so pissed off we all lose the plot occasionally

how consistant
how can someone so consistantly mess up as much as
every instance
how can someone inconsistant mess up so consistantly

what a shock its mr. sweet and awful
tell your gods i want to speak to their fathers
sponsored links
look right now i'm standing on my haunches
i got caught stealing from the lost and found

hey there mr sweet and awful
hey there mr sweet and awful
are you going somewhere
or are you just walking through my walls

hey there mr sweet and awful
hey there mr sweet and awful
this is not a party this is a crowd

hey there mr sweet and awful
youve got it easy i've got my needs
you say what you got
wanting what you please

hey there mr sweet and awful
hey there mr sweet and awful
carry yourself away with a delicious disease

ive got it all most
ive got it all almost all figured out

I just love music | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/5/11

I think there's a lot of different interpretations for this song, or any song for that matter. Personally, I believe that the best way to fully understand a song is just to enjoy it, and love it for the different meanings that come at different times, or for the lack of meaning and presence of heart, soul, and passion.



MODEST MOUSE vs. THE WORLD | Reviewer: Rubear | 2/12/11

I see it as more of a, His Place in the world, qustion type thing like before.
I think this song explain his frustaions of who he is, what he wants to be,what socity expect from him and why things hapen to him the way they do.
"ive got it all most
ive got it all almost all figured out
but always when i get there
always when i get there all the pieces they just fall apart"

This explains that when ever he wants to do somthing that it dosn't work out for him or reciving party.

"i cant hear you
i cant hear you talk about your dreams involving me
i dont believe
i dont believe that they are any sort of prophecy at all"

This may be his frustaions of socity saying go to college, dont do drungs, and invest in stocks(to be suceseful). things that he dosn't believe in or he feels are unatainable. Thus leading him to believe that socity is setup in away that he is not ment for him, somthing he belives is wrong.

"what a shock its mr. sweet and awful
don't look so pissed off we all lose the plot occasionally"

This is where he explains that he is wrong that socity doesn't need him but he is unhappy with his status. He feels low on the totum poll of socity.

"how consistant
how can someone so consistantly mess up as much as
every instance
how can someone inconsistant mess up so consistantly"

this is quite ovious that he dosn't meet the standereds of what is expected from him.Leading him to wonder why is this happening to him and not some well to do person.

"what a shock its mr. sweet and awful
tell your gods i want to speak to their fathers
look right now i'm standing on my haunches
i got caught stealing from the lost and found"

Once again he is reflecting on the fact he is apart of socity but is still confused as to why. He wants to ask socitys creators(eternal being a.k.a GOD)what his logic is because he is on his haunches(legs)surving, but when he goes looking in the "lost in found" to better his life or understaning he is put down by socity. "lost and found" could be a referance to drugs, criminal activity, or genrealy the unclaimed things of socity that could be used to his advantage but are not alowed.

"hey there mr sweet and awful
hey there mr sweet and awful
are you going somewhere
or are you just walking through my walls"

He is now asking an eternal being if he himself is part of somthing bigger and what it might be, or if the etrenal being is just fucking with him.

"hey there mr sweet and awful
hey there mr sweet and awful
this is not a party this is a crowd"

He may be questioning the eternal being what its motives are because he feels that socity is just a bunch of people with no direction instead of a party with a cause or reson for celebration.

"hey there mr sweet and awful
youve got it easy i've got my needs
you say what you got
wanting what you please"

Questioning again why does the way the world works not work for him, but for seemingly everyone else.

"hey there mr sweet and awful
hey there mr sweet and awful
carry yourself away with a delicious disease"

He is telling the eternal being that he does not want it to exsist because it makes his own life that much more of a stuggle.

"ive got it all most
ive got it all almost all figured out"

This is the most open ended lyric because you don't know what he does have. I think he is relizing that there is a place in this world for him and every time he fucks up he is just one more step to realizing it. Its bitter sweet to him that he must fail to succseed, so it may be "sweet and afuwl". He may believe its sweet and awful that he must fail to succseed while other rich kids, or well to do persons don't have to consitanly fail to succseed. With that being said he may think that isn't the way things work and that there is no fait of humanity and the the world is just a crowd that only the well to do sucseed in. Personaly i beleive Mr. sweet and awful gave him all this awful so that he may write sweet music that would make him sucseed in this world thus proving we all have to fail to suceed and that the world is a party and not a crowd. I don't have all the answers, but I've got it all(most):)






meaning | Reviewer: dave | 3/25/10

I think its about himself.

how he feels that he has a second face, like a jekyll and hyde. Hes talking to the other part of himself.

are you going somewhere or just walking through my walls, I cant hear you talking about your dreams involving me. blabla

I think its kinda like an impulsive male ego trip type deal.

stealing from the lost and found seems just like a shot at being profound. I dont really know.


like how his dreams dont include him. stealing from the lost and found I dont really understand.



Meaning | Reviewer: Nikroussian | 3/5/10

I see it as a few meanings in a short but to the point song

1. When he talks of stealing from the lost and found i think he is talking about jumping into a seat of power, like politicly.

2. he says mr. sweat and awful due to the 2-face acts of politicians. He also states that in "you say what you want and wondering what you please", i see it as a attack on politicans not keeping promises.

3.He again attcks the hierarchy by stating "tell your gods i want to speak to their fathers", this is saying that ppl use religion as an excuse to do almost anything.

4. he also attacks our current political status, by saying "are you going somewhere or are you just walking through my walls". Politicians complain and complain all day, and they make promises, but they never really get anything doe.



Meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/17/10

about doublespeak and communication bypass possibly?

mr. sweet and awful (speaking of someone who regularly uses double entendres and about how someone can miss it unless your are looking).

obviously its open to interpretation, but this is how I view it.



play on repeat | Reviewer: cranonymous | 11/13/09

i like to think its about yourself and another person. possibly in a relationship but it could just be someone close to you... i guess thats just how i feel the song. i listen to this song almost everyday. modest mouse speaks to me, i could even say isaac brock verbalizes my feelings. I FUCKING LOOOOOVVVVEEE MODEST MOUSE!!!!!!!!
