Man Man - Van Helsing Boombox Lyrics




Only time will tell if I'll allow
The scenery around to eat me alive

I want to sleep for weeks like a dog at her feet
Even though I know it won't work out in the long run
So I burn down the walls, breathe like a shadow
Those arms I once knew hold me like gold
I learn how to speak forgotten language
I fall in the sea but forget how to swim

When anything that's anything becomes nothing that's everything
And nothing is the only thing you ever seem to have

But only time will tell if I'll allow
The scenery around to eat me alive

I want to sleep for weeks like a dog at her feet
Even though I know it won't work out in the long run
So I burn down the the Nepal, breathe like a shadow
Those arms I once knew hold me like gold
I learn how to speak defeated language
I fall in the street as I howl at the moon

When anything that's anything becomes nothing that's everything
And nothing is the only thing you ever seem to have

    Here are the corrections to your lyrics.
    Those arms I once knew, hold me like ghosts (not gold)

  16. 900cats

    Breathe like a shadow

  17. Eric Boston

    have seen them open up for modest mouse then again as headliner...loved them both times...amazing live show

    Bill King

    +Eric Boston WHAT?! Man Man and Modest Mouse in my dream show! I've seen both of them as headliners and they're always amazing.

    Eric Boston

    It was a beautiful day...angels and unicorns...

    jrgs906

    +Eric Boston I kick myself all the time for missing that show. It was around '07 right?

    Swagmin's Ghost

    I saw them for the first time in 06 opening for modest mouse and 7 times since. Never a bad show, but unfortunately, Honus Honus seems more focused on his solo career

    Dustin Snodgress

    @Swagmin's Ghost solo career and screenwriting, which was his main passion. I believe he said something of the music being pleasant surprise, or pleasant distract. I can't remember his exact words. He never even meant to be the front man of the group, was hoping to find a lead female singer to do that part. But he fell into the roll and owned it.

    I hope they one day reunite. With whoever it may be. As long as it's honus honus and pow pow, it will still be Man Man.

    Hit them up on Facebook! Let them know you want more! Call an encore. Shit, tell everybody to hit him up on Facebook!

    I've recently wrote on man man's wall, and they actually engaged in conversation regardless of not being musically active at the moment.

    Let's start a movement!

  18. Jerod

    Burning down Nepal seems a bit rash.

    Vapid Toast
