Thing I don't remember
How the hell'd we get here?
How the hell did we get here?
things I don't remember,
dressed up alligators
how'd the hell we get here
things I don't remember,
there was dressed up alligators
there was cum on the piano
disco dancing neighbors
who were born in mashed potaters
caught with my pants down
hiding in the dog house
figured out what we're good for
You're the sailor and I'm the port
things I don't remember
We undressed for the tailor
your Skin was slightly salted
opened up a can of loud mouth malted
High fives in your eyes
Pushed the gas and now I'm kissin' your thighs
Looking for a purpose
How'd the hell'd we get here?
There were things I don't remember
There was messed up alligator
There were endless conversations
No one's mouths were really moving
All them dumpsters overflowing
**All my (malevolent creation)**
Things I don't remember
I figured out what I'm good for
Making anything look better
How the hell could I blame her?
Even then I was a savior
There were jokes that couldn't land
Every hand was tipped in subliminal sand
Things I don?t remember
There was undressed for the tailor
There are jokes that couldn't land
There were disco dancing neighbors
They were born in mashed potatoes
There was no town, Motown.
There were things I don't remember
Dressed up alligator
How the hell?d we get here?
How the hell?d we get here?

    General CommentWell the lead singer of Modest Mouse Issac Brock also sings in this song.

    I think the song is about being high and forgetting the things you did. It seems like maybe he's hylousinating on drugs. Some events in the song are just crazy... "there was dressed up alligators" Then when he comes back into himself he thinks "How the hell'd I get here?"

    General Comment@ DJIrishBrowns: I totally agree. The song sounds like a guy who woke up and found all this stuff in his living room after a wild party.

    General CommentI personally think it's a song about being molested as a child.
