Burning Down – R.E.M.

From the back of my neck, oh oh oh
Wired a glass jaw, oh oh
Plantation burning your boat is coming in
Strum your jew’s harp, you’re reeking gin

Running water on a sinking boat
Going under but they’ve got your goat

Burning down
My hands are tied my feet are bound
Burning down
Can’t you see that my hands are bound

Johnny Mike is reading in the yard
His story’s timely, oh oh oh
What river is it anyway, radio
Not in a boat, in your ear

Running water in a sinking boat
Going under but they’ve got your goat

Burning down
My hands are tied my feet are bound
Burning down
Can’t you see that my hands are bound

You pick your island in the sun
Take your island off he’s got a gun

Burning down
My hands are tied my feet are bound
Burning down
Can’t you see that my hands are bound

He’s cooking in the woods, a brush fire in your neck
Feeling mighty mighty, oh oh oh
You can pick your island in the sun
Take your island off he’s got a gun

Running water in a sinking boat
Going under but they’ve got your goat

Burning down
My hands are tied my feet are bound
Burning down
Can’t you see that my hands are bound

I Don’t Sleep, I Dream – R.E.M.

I’m looking for an interruption,
do you believe?
You looking to dig my dreams
Be prepared for anything
You come into my little scene
Hooray hooray hip hip hooray
There’s one thing I can guarantee:
You won’t have to dig, dig too deep

Said leave me to lay, but touch me deep,
I don’t sleep, I dream
I’ll settle for a cup of coffee, but you know what I really need

Are you looking to drive my dreams?
You here to run my screens?
You come, deliver my demons
Hooray hooray hip hip hooray
Are you coming to ease my headache?
Do you give good head?
Am I good in bed?

I don’t know, I guess so
I don’t sleep, I dream
I’ll settle for a cup of coffee, but you know what I really need

I’m looking for an interruption,
can you believe?
Some medicine for my headache
Hooray hooray hip hip hooray
I’m pitching for a new direction
Pinch me when I wake
Don’t tell me my dreams are fake
you leave me to lay, you touch me deep,
I don’t sleep, I dream
I’ll settle for a cup of coffee, but you know what I really need
Leave me to lay, but touch me deep,
I don’t sleep, I dream
I’ll settle for a cup of coffee, but you know what I really need

Camera – R.E.M.

From the inside room when the front room greeting
Becomes your special book, it was simple then
When the party lulls, if we fall by the side
Will you be remembered, will she be remembered

Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed
If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face

I fell by your bed once, I didn’t want to tell you
I should keep myself in between the pages
Of the green light room, if we fall by the side
Will you be remembered, will she be remembered

Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed
If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face

From the inside room when the front room greeting
Becomes your special book, it was simple then
When the party lulls, if we fall by the side
I still like you, can you remember

Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed
If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face
Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed
If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face

Seven Chinese Brothers – R.E.M.

This mellow, sweet, short-haired boy woman offers, pull up a seat
Take in one symphony now, we’ve just begun to battle
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the lake a twist of color
Autumn waited, hold it to you, swim the color, come another

Seven Chinese brothers swallow in the ocean
Seven thousand years to sleep away the pain
She’ll return, she will return

This mellow, sweet, short-haired boy woman offers, pull up a seat
Take in one symphony now, we’ve just begun to battle
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the lake a twist of color
Autumn waded seven seas, swim in color, become another

Seven Chinese brothers swallow in the ocean
Seven thousand years to sleep away the pain
She will return, she’ll return

This mellow, sweet, short-haired boy woman offers, pull up a chair
Take in one symphony now, I guess we lost that battle
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the gray a twist of color
Autumn waded seven seas, swim in color, become another

Seven Chinese brothers swallow in the ocean
Seven thousand years to form a united rain
She will return, she will return
She will return, she will return
