R.E.M. - Blue lyrics

Yellow circus left the stakes a broken ropes useless mud
The ties that bind, ha ha
I can be bad poet
Street poet
Shit poet
Kind poet too

Almost 4AM
I'd had enough to drink to make my own party
All my fellow writers in half costume, half asleep
Half silly, gone to seed

I don't mark my time with dates, holidays, fate, wisdom, luck, karma, polaris...

I am made by my times
I am a creation of now
Shaken with the cracks and crevices
I'm not giving up easy
I will not fold
I don't have much
But what I have is gold

I saw your face...

I sing in platinum
I dress in brass
I eat in zinc
Let it pass

A Party toast
I like that
I understand courage
I still roll with the shout of the cab drivers attitude of the day
I try to see outside myself
I understand the eyes
Excuse all eyes
I am sorry
Ha ha

I like you, love you, every coast of you.
I've seen your eddies and tides and hurricanes and cyclones.
Low ebb tide and high, full moon.
Up close and distant.
I read you.
Like the sky, the sea, the ocean, the sun, the moon.
Blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue blue, blue, blue, blue, blue.
Naked and blue.

Breathing with you. Touch. Change. Shift. Allow air. Window open. Drift. Drift away. Into now.

I want Whitman proud. Patti Lee proud. My brothers proud. My sisters proud. I want me. I want it all. I want sensational. Irresistible.

This is my time and I am thrilled to be alive.

Living. Blessed. I understand.

Twentieth century:
Collapse Into Now

Cinderella boy
You lost your shoe

Cinderella boy
Your coach awaits

I saw it shader
All over the place
As you sit
Naked and blue
Into the moon
