Departure – R.E.M.

Just arrived Singapore, San Sebastian, Spain, 26-hour trip.
Salt Lake City, come in spring over the salt flats.
A hailstorm brought you back to me.
Salt Lake City, come in spring over the salt flats.
A hailstorm brought you back to me.

Here it comes (I’m carried away)
Here it comes (I’m carried away)
Here it comes, bad.

Departure, godspeed, bless his heart, good lord.
What a fuck-up, what a fighter.
Free-fall, motorcycle, hang-glider,
Hung on the line like a poison spider.
Win a eulogy from William Greider,
car crash, ptomaine, disposable lighter,
a bus plunge, avalanche, RV, vinegar cider.
Free-fall, motorcycle, hang-glider.

Here it comes (I’m carried away)
Here it comes (I’m carried away)
Here it comes, bad.

Go, go, go, go, yeah.

Well, everybody is young forever.
There’s so much to tell you, so little time.
I’ve come a long way since, uh, whatever,
shit, I still see that word and think of you.
There is so much that I can’t do, yeah.
You will be young forever.
There is so much that I can’t do.
There is so much that I can’t do.

Here it comes (I’m carried away)
Here it comes (I’m carried away)
Here it comes, bad.

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

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
