Karma Payment Plan

Album: The Fruit That Ate Itself (1997)
  • I am not who I want to be
    I probably will not ever be
    I drove my car on June 14th
    I drove it right on down the street
    I had not had any sleep
    So I ate minithins to stay awake

    You crashed your car right into me
    There was two days I 'fore I had to leave.

    Uh oh uh oh down low down low [x2]

    I am not who I want to be
    I probably will not ever be
    I took a trip down to California

    Karma payment plan...
    Karma's payment plan [x2]

    My car broke down out in the street
    The radiator sprung a leak
    I met this guy he said that he could help me
    I'm on the karma payment plan.. (x2)

    We went to his house and did some speed
    He said karma would pay for this deed
    He got it fixed and he started to scare me
    I ditched eventually
    And came back for the van the next morning

    I'm on the Karma payment plan (x2)

    I went to LA the next day
    I got jacked in a really bad way
    I cannot tell you but..
    It's a long story

  • Jess from Kannapolis, NcI completely agree with Jenny. Boo-yah.
  • Erika from Topeka, KsAwesome, awesome song right here.
  • Jake from San Fran, CaThis song is also off "The fruit that ate itself" one of thier best albums. The only reason the 80's ended was because Issac Brock started learning to play the guitar and writing songs.
    Its true, look it up.
  • Jenny from Wisconsin Dells, WiI LOVE MODEST MOUSE SO ANY SONG BY THEM ROCKS!
