Modest Mouse – Float On (Redux)

May 20, 2004

So the most popular story and what most people seem to be googling most about, according to my logs is this song by Modest Mouse. So I have decided to maybe shed some light on the song and provide my interpretation.

So this song is all about misfortunes and their fortunes that might come along. Ofcourse no one will ever hit a cop car and get away with it, but it would be nice to run your mouth off and everyone just laugh it off. In the end it all floats on.

Lyrics again:

I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well he just drove off sometimes life’s okay
I ran my mouth off a bit too much oh what did I say
Well you just laughed it off it was all okay

And we’ll all float on okay
And we’ll all float on okay
And we’ll all float on okay
And we’ll all float on anyway, well

A virtue maker took every last dime with that scam
It was worth it just to learn from slight of hand
Bad news comes don’t you worry even when it lands
Good news will work its way to all them plans
We both got fired on exactly the same day
Well we’ll float on good news is on the way

And we’ll all float on okay
And we’ll all float on okay
And we’ll all float on okay
And we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on
Now don’t you worry we’ll all float on alright
already we’ll all float on alright
Don’t worry we’ll all float on

(Alright already)
And we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on alright
Don’t worry even if things end up a bit too heavy
We’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on okay
Don’t worry we’ll all float on
Even if things get heavy we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on (alright)
Don’t you worry we’ll all float on (alright)
All float on
