Bukowski

Lyrics

Woke up this morning and it seemed to me,
That every night turns out to be
A little more like Bukowski.
And yeah, I know he's a pretty good read.

Music is art, guys. You can write a song in any melody and say whatever you want to say. If you don't like anti-religio u s messages, don't cry, just make yourself a religious station where everyone holds hands and sways. Nothing wrong with either way, its a To Each His Own scenario. I personally like it, but i guess that makes me a bad person haha

I don't think this is actually a song about charles bukowski. I think this is more or less a criticism of God/religion in a way that Bukowski would argue. MM is always writing about religion and God, at least in their good stuff. And the feel of the song is God, if you really do exist, then screw you you selfish b**tard.

I watched a fantastic bio of Bukowski from Netflix...do n ' t recall the name but it had interviews with him during his rise to notoriety. It's worth checking out if you are intrigued by him. Love his writing BTW.

Actually, if you go by his writing, Bukowski was a vodka-guzzli n g poet (and no Buddha BTW). Personally I love his writing but don't believe his bio. SOB lived to 80 I think...

The only Modest Mouse I like.

One of my favorite of their songs, especially the dark, gravelly end.
Report as inappropriate
No, the song is about Charles Bukowski - a beer guzzling, scat obsessed poet who spent his life trying as hard as possible to do nothing at all...sort of Buddha with a Pabst (see also the movie, Barfly)

this song basically got me into music as a whole a few years back.

The disjointed singing in the background is pretty cool.

I enjoy Bukowski's books, but yeah... I'd never switch places with him. Especially now that he's dead...

I know several who would qualify...
