Satin In A Coffin Lyrics

Satin In A Coffin - Modest Mouse

 

You were laying on the carpet

Like you're satin in a coffin

You said "Do you believe what you're sayin' "

Yeah right now but not that often

Are you dead or are you sleepin'

Are you dead or are you sleepin'

Are you dead or are you sleepin'

God I sure hope you are dead

 

Well you disappeared so often

Like you dissolved into coffee

Are you here right now

Or are there probably fossils under your meat

Are you dead or are you sleepin'

Are you dead or are you sleepin'

Are you dead or are you sleepin'

God I sure hope you are dead

 

Now the blow's been softened

Since the air we breathe's our coffin

Well now the blow's been softened

Since the ocean is our coffin

Often times you know our laughter

Is your coffin ever after

And you know the blow's been softened

Since the world is our coffin

Well now the blow's been softened

Since we are our own damn coffins

Well everybody's talkin' about their short lists

Everybody's talkin' about death

You were laying on the carpet

Like you're satin in a coffin

You said "Do you believe what you're sayin' "

Yeah right now but not that often

Are you dead or are you sleepin'

Are you dead or are you sleepin'

Are you dead or are you sleepin'

 

God I sure hope you are dead
