Minus The Bear - Houston, We Have Uh-Oh Lyrics

Stand here with the mountain in background
The copper mine up the hill from the town
Sits asleep like a retiree
Once used and now no use for

People used to work here
And mined their lives from this ground
Crushed them in these machines
And forged them in the future
We just take pictures
Of hearts that stopped beating

Sometimes you're a tourist with a camera
Stealing souls for scrapbooks
Sometimes you've got a life back home
Sometimes you're really alone, you're really alone
Sometimes you're really alone
Sometimes you're really alone, you're really alone
Sometimes you're really alone

We go home, after fishin' all day
And get our hands dirty
Getting the catch clean
And Mike is in the kitchen
He's heating up the fry pan
And we're in the front yard
We're watching the sun fall

People used to live here
And lived their lives on this ground
Raised them in these fields
And lost them in the future
And we just take pictures
Of hearts that stopped beating

Sometimes you're a tourist with a camera
Stealing souls for scrapbooks
Sometimes you've got a life back home
Sometimes you're really alone, you're really alone
Sometimes you're really alone
Sometimes you're really alone, you're really alone
Sometimes you're really alone

Minus The Bear Houston, We Have Uh-Oh Comments
  1. Mina Girgis

    As a Yankee fan, this song seems appropriate today :)

  2. Pandah Sykes

    This band reminds me a lot of the dismemberment plan , both of which I listened to a ton back in the good old days like a decade ago now —- how the days go by so fast 💨

  3. Mike nolan

    this fucking song

  4. jon ronan

    Best band on exsistance. Disagree on theology but they have created a sound unlike any other for 20 yrs & i thank them for it. Come to va more!

    Grumpy Sega Tech

    They're on their farewell tour now. Please see them one last time. It's going to be an amazing experience.


    @Grumpy Sega Tech I saw them in Chicago for their farewell tour. It was my first and last show seeing them, I'm glad I was able to though. They are amazing live! Caspian was a great opening for them.

    Grumpy Sega Tech

    @jman3845 I just saw them on Tuesday 11/27 with Tera Melos. My god, what an amazing night. Saw Jake by the tour bus before the show. He's a genuinely cool person.


    @Grumpy Sega Tech I bet it was amazing! They are such a great group of guys and their show is amazing. I wish I would have been able to see them off stage. I did get to talk with the lead guy of caspian for a while at their merch booth though. Minus the bear and explosions in the sky will probably remain the best live shows I'll ever see.

  5. austin thompson

    20 people don't like getting their hands dirty

  6. industrialhemprocks

    Turtle island

  7. Joseph Olson

    This track is a life changer.

  8. moose drool

  9. Dope Scope

    best video picture ever

    Jeremy Landry

    funny thing about that pictire
    have always thought it was a wet dog with its tounge out
    now i see it's a turtle.
    and i can't see the dog anymore, it's gone


    Yeah! It goes really well with this song really captures the summer vibes...

  10. Dabomb1237

    They played this for their encore in Seattle, where I saw them for my first time. Great band!


    I want to say Fall of 2015 at The Crocodile

    Andy Perkins

    Cool Ronny

    @Edwin Hrabe Jr It was added to the "They make beer commercials like this" reissue

  14. Innuendo Records

    Fuck yes. Thumbs up for the Sealab reference.

    Jordan Harms

    hey, i love sealab and minus the bear, but i guess im not paying close enough attention lol, whats the reference? 

    Ian O'Connor

    +Jordan Harms The name of the song.

  15. theangryemonerd

    Do not compare it to dance gavin dance. That band is total shit if anything. This sounds like a non-screaming/shouting version of The reptilian


    theangryemonerd DGD is not shit, but as a long time fan of both they are awesome in their own respective genres.

    Ark Entertainment

    theangryemonerd when you have a bad taste in music

  16. spohn420

    This song must be the birth of "Hey! is that a ninja up there?"

  68. OhHiDenny

    great song is great. best band is best.

  95. jSOPURE

    Sometimes you're really alone!

  96. mikerotethis

    the beginnings of ninja and houston sound like they are in the same key so they kinda sound similar that way i think but they have different riffs and melody which makes them both even better because u get the same feel from two different songs

  97. mikerotethis

    "people used to live here ... we just take pictures" -- too good.

  98. Jyrgen Shuvalov

    MTB is of greater quality than ttng

  99. Alexander Craven

    best live band ever
