Modest Mouse performs “Float On”

…..Liam Neeson
…..Modest Mouse

Liam Neeson: Ladies and gentlemen – Modest Mouse.

Modest Mouse:
“I backed my car into a cop car the other day.
Well he just drove off, sometimes life’s okay.
I ran my mouth off a bit too much, oh what did I say?
Well we just laughed it off, it was all okay.

And we’ll all float on okay.
And we’ll all float on okay.
And we’ll all float on okay.
And we’ll all float on anyway.

Well, a fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam.
It was worth it just to learn some sleight of hand.
Bad news comes, don’t you worry even when it lands.
Good news will work its way on all them plans.
We both got fired on exactly the same day,
that we were gonna quit it anyways.

And we’ll all float on okay.
And we’ll all float on okay.
And we’ll all float on okay.
And we’ll all float on.
Alright already, we’ll all float on.
Okay, don’t worry, we’ll all float on.
Alright, I’m ready, we’ll all float on.
We’ll all float on.
We’ll all float on.
Alright.

And we’ll all float on. Alright already, we’ll all float on okay
Don’t worry, even if things end up a bit too heavy.
We’ll all float on.
Alright already, we’ll all float on.
Alright already, we’ll all float on
Alright already, we’ll all float on
We’ll all float on.
Alright.”
