"Neverending Math Equation" as written by Isaac Brock, Eric Judy and Jeremiah Green....
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my God, I feel so old
I don't really feel anything
On a plane, I can see the tiny lights below
And oh my God, they look so alone
Now do they really feel anything?

Oh my God, I've gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta move on
Where do you move when that you're moving from is yourself?
The universe works on a math equation
That never really even ever really even ends in the end
Infinity spirals out creation

We're on the tip of it's tongue, and it is saying
We ain't sure where you stand
You ain't machines, and you ain't land
And the plants and the animals, they are linked
And the plants and the animals eat each other

I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my God I feel so old
I don't really feel anything
On a plane, I can see the tiny lights below
And oh my God, they look so alone
Now do they really feel anything?

Oh my God, I've gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta move on
Where do you move when that you're moving from is yourself?
The universe works on a math equation
And never really even ever really even ends
Infinity spirals out creation

On the tip of it's tongue, and it is saying
We ain't sure where you stand
You ain't machines, and you ain't land
And the plants and the animals, they are linked
And the plants and the animals eat each other

Oh my God and oh my cat
I told my dad what I need
Well, I know what I have and want
But I don't know what I need
Well, he said, he said, he said, he said
"Where we're going, I'm dead"

    General CommentI think at the age of 6 we are all very selfish and alone in the sense that we want what we want and want to get our way. So that mentality doesnt really change, the only way we know how others feel are what they show us.

    When he is up on the plane he is looking at the world and seeing all those lights and it kind of goes to show you how many people there are out there. How do we all connect>? We are really alone in this world. This doesnt change no matter how old we are. With all of this we have created in life, machines and lights and stuff, we have even farther disconnected ourselves to reality, to that equation that connects us to the nature and each other. The plants and the animals have a purpose, and he is questioning our purpose and pondering it through loneliness.

    Maybe his dad just died? and there is a certain aloneness when someone close to you dies and a kind of questioning period of what is the meaning of life is if we are going to just die anyways.

    General CommentThis song is the manifestatin of the weird vacant feeling you get sometimes at the airport, when you haven't slept and your body is thrown off from the flights and the fluorescent lights start to get to you and you start thinking about your life.

    It's just him thinking about life, what his life means in relation the world, trying to put it all in terms he can explain or understand, something like a math equation. I think the conclusion he comes away with, though, is that there is no conclusion. "We ain't sure where you stand." Nobody knows -- nobody has ever known, not for sure, and nobody ever will.

    General CommentWhen we grow up, we realize that the universe doesn't revolve around us.

    My simplified explanation for this song is that it's about relearning that lesson in a more literal sense.

    General CommentProbably the majority of Modest Mouse lyrics are about being very small and temporary parts of the universe with no clear purpose or meaning. It makes them a very good band for Mark Kozilek to cover.
