R.E.M.

Horse to Water – R.E.M.

I could have kept my head down
I might have kept my mouth shut
I should have held my own,
You lead a horse to water and you watch him drown.

You’re only as big as your battles.
Rattle my cage with your shadow.
I’m a phantom-weight with a mouth full of feathers,
Don’t you know that what comes around goes around?

I’m not that easy,
I am not your horse to water.
I hold my breath I come around, round, round.

Don’t darken my doorstep again,
You’re mixing up living in chin-chin,
You’re mixing up lose with win-win,
You lead a horse to water and you watch him drown.

You stumble on glass top table,
TV’s chewing shock-gone cable
Pump me up a beanstalk fable
And I’ll call this entertainment
’cause Humpty’s falling down.

I’m not that easy,
I am not your horse to water.
I hold my breath I come around, round, round.

Pick a fight an ultra-buzzy bubble
Friday night fuckin’ fried-up pub crawl
Phantom-weight with a mouth full of feathers,
Don’t you know that what comes around goes around?

I’m not that easy,
I am not your horse to water.
I hold my breath I come around, round, round.

It’s not that easy
I am not your horse to water
I hold my breath, I come around, round, round
It’s going down, down, down
This runaround, round, round
Is bound to pound
The daylights out of you!

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

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
