"Dashboard" as written by and Brock/judy/peloso/marr/green/plummer....
Well, it would've been
Could've been worse than you would ever know
Oh, the dashboard melted
But we still have the radio

Oh, it should've been
Could've been worse than you would ever know
Well, you told me about nowhere
Well, it sounds like someplace I'd like to go

Oh, it could've been
Should've been worse than you would ever know
Well, the windshield was broken
But I love the fresh air ya know
(The dashboard melted, but we still have the radio)

Oh, it would've been
Could've been worse than you would ever know, oh!
(The dashboard melted, but we still have the radio)
Oh, we talked about nothing
Which was more than I wanted you to know-oh-oh-oh-oh
Now here we go!

Oh, it would've been
Could've been worse than it had even gone
Well, the car was on blocks, but I was already where I want
(It was impossible, we ran it good, we ran it good)

Why should we ever even ever really even get to know?
(It was impossible, we ran it good, we ran it good)
Oh, if the world don't like us
It'll shake us just like we were a co-oh-oh-oh-old
Now here we go!

Well, we scheme, and we scheme, but we always blow it
We've yet to crash, but we still might as well enjoy it
Standing at a light switch to each east and west horizon
Every dawn you're surprising
And the evening was consoling
Saying, "See, it wasn't quite as bad as"

Well, it would've been
Could've been worse than you would ever know

I was patiently erasing and recording the wrong episodes
After you had proved my point wrong
It wasn't like I'd let it go, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I just wanted to catch the last laugh of this show

Yeah, it would've been
Could've been worse than you would ever know
Oh, the dashboard melted, but we still have the radio
(The dashboard melted, but we ran it good, we ran it good)

Hard-wired to conceive, so much we'd have to stow it
Even needs have needs, tiny giants made of tinier giants
Don't wear eyelids so I don't miss the last laugh of this show
(The dashboard melted, but we still have the radio)

Oh, we could've been
Should've been worse than you would ever know
(The dashboard melted, but we still have the radio)
Well, you told me about nowhere
Well, it sounds like someplace I'd like to go-oh-oh-oh-oh
Now here we go!

Well, we scheme, and we scheme, but we always blow it
We've yet to crash, but we still might as well enjoy it
Standing at a light switch to each east and west horizon
Every dawn you're surprising
And the evening was consoling
Saying, "See, it wasn't quite as bad as"

Oh, it would've been
Could've been worse than you would ever know

    General CommentYou lose all your material items etc. but you still have the things that make life fun to you, family, friends, music etc. as well as many other smaller meanings.

    with that said, the quote ''they are still better than any other band out there.'' i find is talking down on modest's music and feel your not comfortable saying u enjoy there music. who gives a shit what 1st place prize modest mouse's music wins? who gives a shit if they take over the world with all the money they make? who gives a shit if there sound style changes? who really gives a rats ass if likeing one of there singles over all there older material makes you look like a poser!

    NONE OF THIS MATTERS IF U ENJOY THE DESIRE IN YOUR HEART TO LISTEN TO ANY BANDS MUSIC. I LOVE MODEST MOUSE'S MUSIC. THIS SONG INCLUDED.

    AND IF SOME KID LIKES FLOAT ON AND DOESNT NO THEY HAVE OTHER SONGS, WOO HOO, HE LIKES IT. THATS ALL THAT MATTERS. HE CAN BE THE BIGGEST POSER IN THE WORLD BUT IF HE TRULEY LIKES THE SONG IM HAPPY THAT HE HAS FOUND A PEICE OF MUSIC HE CAN RELATE TO. BIG DEAL FOLKS! AND BY THE WAY MUSIC CANT BE GRADED TO ALL THOSE MORONS OUT THERE, ITS BASED ON PERSONAL INTEREST. THATS THAT.
