Circus Envy – R.E.M.

Here comes that awful feeling again
Welcome the ugly animal.
I hold my breath to watch you swing,
My high rope acrobat ball and chain,
I’m not afraid, I messed it, messed it, messed it, messed it up

I’ve got my telescope head in the haystack
I’m getting tired of your dodgeball circus act
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark on command

Here comes that awful feeling again
Make way for monster jealousy
The strong man kicked sand into my breakfast cereal bowl
I’d spelled your name with Oatios,
He messed it, messed it, messed it, messed it up

I’ve got my telescope head in the haystack
I am tired of your dodgeball circus act
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark on command

You’re mean, mean, mean
You tease, tease, tease me

If I were you I’d really run from me
I’d really really wish that I were you
When I get loose I’ll climb a tree
And drop a load on your head
This monster in me makes me retch, you messed it, messed it up

I’ve got my telescope head in the haystack
I am jealous of your dodgeball circus act
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark on command

You’re mean, mean, mean
You tease, tease, tease me

Do you smell jealousy?
Do you smell jealousy, jealousy, jealousy?

Kohoutek – R.E.M.

Who will stand alone

She carried ribbons, she wore them out
Courage built a bridge, jealousy tore it down
At least it’s something you’ve left behind
And like Kohoutek you were gone
We sat in the garden, we stood on the porch
I won’t deny myself, we never talked

She wore bangles, she wore bells
On her toes and she jumped
Like a fish, like a flying friend
You were gone, like Kohoutek, can’t forget that
Fever built a bridge, reason tore it down
If I am one to follow who will stand alone

Maybe you’re not the problem, scissors, paper, stone
If you stand and holler, these prayers will talk
She carried ribbons, she wore them out
Michael built a bridge, Michael tore it down
At least it’s something you’ve left behind
Like Kohoutek, you were gone

Michael built a bridge, Michael tore it down
If I stand and holler will I stand alone

Laughing – R.E.M.

Laocoon and her two sons
Pressured storm, tried to move
No other more emotion bound
Martyred, misconstrued

Lighted in a room, in the room
Lighted, lighted, laughing in tune
Lighted, lighted, laughing

Laocoon and her two sons
Run the gamut, sated view
Know them more, emotion bound
Martyred, misconstrued

Lighted in a room, in the room
Lighted, lighted, laughing in tune
Lighted, lighted, laughing

In a room, lock the door, latch the room
Lighted, lighted, laughing

Laocoon and her two sons
Ran the gamut, settled new
Find a place fit to laugh
Lock the doors and latch the room

Lighted in a room, in the room
Lighted, lighted, laughing in tune
Lighted, lighted, laughing in tune

Lighted, lighted, laughing in tunes
Lighted, lighted, laughing in tune

High Speed Train – R.E.M.

When I look into your eyes.
Your drop like an anchor eyes.
I scudded and clipped the sky
Just shy of making it.

And you almost got away.
I told you I was afraid.
Did I really want to try
You’re holding me to my claim

I jump on a high speed train
I’ll never look back again
I flail like the antelope
Who jumped from the building

and you caught me on the sly
you’ve taken me by surprise.
you’ve mirrored my best disguise and
turned it back on me.

I jump on a high speed train
I’ll never look back again
I flail like the antelope
Who jumped from the building

I jump on a high speed train
I’ll never look back again
To Berlin, Kyoto or Marseilles
I’d go anywhere for you

I’ll bring you a big bouquet
I picked it myself today
it compliments your eyes
there’s love at the end of the line

I jump on a high speed train
I’ll never look back again
I flail like the antelope
Who jumped from the building

I jump on a high speed train
I’ll never look back again
To Berlin, Kyoto or Marseilles
I’d go anywhere for you

And that’s what I always knew
I’d like to have hung the moon.
I’d wrestle you for a spoon inside your sleeping bag.
Just us.

No war. no hate. no past.
It’s real.
I’m here. I’m yours. I’m fast.
I’m long in the eye
I’m cry when I try
I just want to fly
Just you and I, together
