Stay gone for a while
Stay gone for a while
Stay gone, eyes twitch and thin smile
Stay gone for a while
It takes a needle point and smile
Stay gone for a while
Stay gone twice, twitch and thin smile
Stay gone for a while
It takes a needle point and smile
I'm gone for everyone, and for anyone that deserves
I'm gone for everyone, and for anyone that deserves

    General CommentCatchy as all hell, a real cool mellow Modest Mouse melody mixed with maze-like museful lyrics.

    General Commenti think its about being real strung out. I just see myself sitting there, eyes twitch when something catches my attention all the sudden. SO i guess gone = stoned and people get goofy-ass blissfull smiles when they are high alot soo i dunno. yeah bein high song. not to mention theres a depressing tone about the uselessness yet enjoyability (if thats a word) about drugs

    General Commentfrom personal experience, it's about heroin. heroin usage isn't consistant with brock's drugs of choice, but from the song, it can't be about anything else.

    General Comment"It takes a needle point and smile" ... Its about shooting up. It's a short chatchy song i really dont think it has a deeper meaning then what it is obviously talking about. I love it though just the way that he sings it.

    General Commentthis song is incredibly good for an unreleased demo. I don't see why they never released this.

    General CommentIt can be found here: modestmouselive.zeromethos.com/

    And I think if anything Isaac is singing about shooting up anything it's probably meth, as that seems to be a drug he used a lot, and meth definitely makes you twitch.

    General CommentAlthough after even more listens, the rather relaxed feeling of the song and the vocals make me think it is indeed about heroin. Heroin is a better drug anyway, so I'll just convince myself that's what it's about.
