"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 pretentious fans make me sick, heaven forbid this band gains popularity and makes money!! oh, if more than a thousand ppl listen to it then it sucks right? wake up and enjoy music for what it is. just because something becomes popular doesn't mean the quality degrades. if it wasn't for modest having a float on video i would've never bought a single cd, now i own every one they have put out, if that doesn't mean something then i don't know what does, get off your high horse and sit back and listen to the music you assholes, just because something is reaching beyond your group of ten friends doesn't mean it's bad music. you people act like these guys should stay obscure the rest of their lives, everybody wants to get paid, at least they make it sound good while they do it. stop bitching and give up your 12 bucks and enjoy it with the rest of us and let's toast the mouse and their new found (and well deserved) #1 album


    ps to you "indie rock and rollers, if you think you're special, please realize that you are not, and stop berating the people that enjoy good music, no matter how popular it is, the trolls that condemn new mouse fans are the same people that force listeners to keep focusing on fergie and stefani, give it a rest and embrace the newfound fans you miserable bastards
