Low – R. E. M

I Believe – R. E. M

Accelerate – R. E. M

No time to argue with belief I’m not alone, a thousand others dropping Faster than me What put me here? Nothing to hold on to Nowhere to brake Where is the ripcord, the trapdoor, the key? Where is the cartoon escape-hatch for me? No time to question the choices I make I’ve got to follow […]

Horse To Water – R. E. M

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? […]

High Speed Train – R. E. M

The Great Beyond – R. E. M

You’re In The Air – R. E. M

The Wrong Child – R. E. M
