This plane is definitely crashing
This boat is obviously sinking
This building's totally burning down
And my, and my (a whole bunch)
And my heart has slowly dried up

    General Commenti was on a plane a couple years ago heading to ny, just relaxing, listening to modest mouse on shuffle, and all of a sudden i hear isaac screaming at me "THIS PLAN IS DEFINITELY CRASHING!!" scared the shit out of me.

    General CommentIt may seem like a meaningless ditty, but most MM songs have meaning, especially the almost pointless. Basically, its aying that you inevidably have shit luck, because you inevidably die. Whether its plane crash, drowning or natrual cause "My heart is slowly dried up!" and there's no way to avoid death.

    I just came up with this conclusion last night. I must have heard this song 500 times and never guessed it.

    General CommentI think this song is about apathy,
    "This plane is definately crashing" Like we are headed in a shitty direction but "my heart is slowly dried up" meaning he became apathetic to the situation once he accepted it.

    General CommentI love how after every line, the music deteriorates until it's nothing more than noise.

    General CommentThe best part about this song is that it would rock just as hard if it were slow and soft. Because Modest Mouse rocks either way.
