You didn't dye your hair and, oh, my hair went black
Now what you knew, you knew, you knew, you know what the fuck
Take all the way you get down I'll get them down
Couldn't thought, getting all the kryptonite all down
Sorry, the Volkswagen is a goddamn, goddamn pain
And he gets him anyway, what the fuck do you seeing
So what, hey, I'm going to, tonight I'm trying to lying one time
They had peared mine too when I threw you mine
Hey, I guess I leave right here, you help me out
What's all I'm trying to say I know you don't
Everyones' care, everyone, everyone, how the what the fuck you say
But I know what's going on who bought the other damn pair of jeans
One time, one time, one time, he gone he got another one
You don't care, I don't have you bathe down right in no fucking cup, one time
I can't, I can't, messed up, you took down me, start talking shit
I can't, I can't understand, you know what I mean
You got yourself a cool weekend, what time of week
Only one day, and one day, eh, you know, you know see it fit
Well I don't care, I'm getting off here, getting off with him
I get myself, I know I got myself a good pal
Well don't you know, what you knew, you knew goddamn well
And well you knew what, you don't want to play, but you'd guess that you could play
Same as when you knew, you knew nothing, now what do you have to say
And your on the way down, and I'll go down, your going to fucking trip
Well, Sam, my head will bend like hell, like nothing
Well doctor's say, you going to hold on by the fucking nuts, yeah
One time, two times I go do the craft, we're going to probably bring it
And we'll end up hearing downtown, and town, and drown, I'm trying to talk
And our friends are carefree
And you brutal us, brutal us, bring it down to your spleen
I don't care if you don't care, your shoes up in that shit
Son of God, Jesus Christ, he won't even do nothing
I'm the one most counted on, you take at the tail of the line, you scream
Close out now, always burning and I said to myself
Aaron right here, he got the gun to kill himself, he gone, I'm going to drink now
You take a look at him by yourself, thank you, Edwin
Edwin's the master of this shit, there's a master of fucking the TV master, all this shit
Edwin, well I got myself one thing, two things, three things in my mouth
Hey Sally, hey Buddy, hey burnt out
And you tie yourself to the counted on you still can't clear the line though
I kicked myself when I walked home I don't know why I . . . shit
Where the hell you go with there, hell, it's all the same
You pee on yourself, well you're going down, you stop to drink
Well I want, got two things, and don't pull my nine
Well if you are in the air and detect and I saw you left behind right?
One time you're going to get, so we can know it less
It's all in contact, two pal you waiting, then I'll get ready
And one spot up, one spot up, through your candled ground
Well I got myself what I call luck all night

    General CommentUm, these aren't the Beta Carotene lyrics. Leastwise not the ones from the song willlliw sent me (thanks, man, I forgot I had the song till today). I don't know what song this is, but I'd love hear it, if anyone has it (maybe it's just another version of Beta Carotene?). Anyway, here are the lyrics to the one I have, as I best as I could tell:

    I got myself the means
    I got myself what I call the beta carotene
    Perspire from all the strings
    I never had enough, enough to keep you stringing along

    And by the pool side
    I watch the summer and the thought of the last ends it, bye
    Sometimes you give so many lifts, well
    Sometimes you know you're gonna have to, gonna get a ride

    I need to knock the ride, uh oh oh
    Ain't on your friends, all they'll say is no, you know your line and
    You'll say, oh no, you know, you know, you know, you know you're right

    I got myself the means
    I got myself what I call the beta carotene
    Perspire from all the strings
    I, I never had enough, enough to keep you stringing along

    And by the pool side
    I watch the summer and the thought of the last ends it, bye
    And sung so many lifts
    You know, know, know, know, know, know, know you're gonna have to go and get a ride
    Gonna have to tell and get a ride
    Have to go and get a ride
    Gonna have to, gotta get a ride
    Gonna have to, gotta get a ride

    And if you go in the water
    My family
    I know my heart will dry over
    And head, he needs to tell

    I'm on the drone, low
    Living it right and
    I'm never anywhere
    And I never feel somewhere, don't you know?
    Oh no, I never feel somewhere, don't you know?
    Oh no, I never

    (And now the water's right)
    Oh no, I know
    Oh no, oh no
    What was almost
    Oh no, I know, I know
    No, I know, I know, what it was
    You have hung on, I know, waterslide and
    Hell to pay
    Heaven is a collection agency
    I feel heaven, heaven's a collection agency
    Got the eye, eye, eye, eye, eye, eye, eye upon the pavement

    General Commentsong's dubbed "Dyed Your Hair", apparently mislabeled as "Beta Carotene" often.

    IFAIK, beta carotene is a vitamin that can be made synthetically, for whatever purpose, but has some bad effects like cancer or something.

    General Commentlong song...Beta Carotene was an ingredient on the back of some food i was eating, dunno what it is, im no chemist..yeah, it isnt on any cds, and probably never will be, its just a live version i think..nice guitar sound though..i think i got this off of the Knerd website for Modest Mouse, they have taken off the mp3's since my last visit, and that might have been the only place to get it..sorry

    General Commentone of the few Modest mouse songs I've never heard... I think secret agent X-9 is the other. The lyrics look cool though.
