Life it rents us

... There are so many great lines in this song. I've posted an abridged version below. Infact, the whole album is just great.

The View : Modest Mouse
(Album: Good News for People Who Love Bad News)
Your gun went off.
Well you shot off your mouth and look where it got you.
My mouth runs on too.

Shouts from both sides,
"Well we've got the land but they've got the view!"
Well now here's the clue.

Life it rents us.
And yeah I hope it put plenty on you.
Well I hope mine did too.

As life gets longer, awful feels softer.
Well it feels pretty soft to me.
And if it takes shit to make bliss,
then I feel pretty blissfully.

We are fixed right where we stand.

For every invention made how much time did we save?
We're not much farther than we were in the cave.

If life's not beautiful without the pain,
well I'd just rather never ever even see beauty again.

For every good deed done there is a crime committed.
We are fixed.
For every step ahead we could have just been seated.
We are fixed.

We are fixed.
We are fixed.
We are fixed right where we stand.
