REM – Collapse Into Now – Album Y Letras Completas

Discoverer

Hey baby
This is not a challenge
It just means that I love you
As much as I always said I did

I was wrong
I have been laughable wrong
Sandpaper, paper mâché, chalk, and hung out wet

Oh, the city and your skin
Now, now, now, now, now, now, now
I didn’t have to be afraid
I didn’t have to feel so stupid
I can see myself, I can feel

That
Just the slightest bit of finesse
I might have made a little less mess
But it was what it was
Let’s all get on with it, now!

Discoverer!
Discoverer!
Discoverer!
Discoverer!
Laughing!
Discoverer!

Floating across Houston
This is where I am
I see the city rise up tall
The opportunities. And possibilities
I have never felt so called
Remember the vodka expresso night of discovery
Remember that? Laughing! Discovery!

Oh how I look back and reflect
How I felt it. How It set
I don’t have to feel so wrong
Now I wake up dreaming saffron, turmeric and brass

Just the slightest bit of finesse
I might have made a little less mess
But it was what it was
Let’s all get on with it, now!

Just the slightest bit of finesse
I might have made a little less mess
But it was what it was
Let’s all get on with it, now!

All the Best

So over me
So pie in my face
So talk to me
Tell me where to place these in my
Quasimodo heart
That’s where I slipped and fell
I rang the church bell ’till my ears bled
Red blood cells

I think
I’ll sing and rhyme
I’ll give it one more time
I’ll show the kids how to do it
Fine fine, fine

I hold the mirror up
You tell me what is what
You tell me which part of my story, baby
Stuck, stuck, stuck
I’m in a part of your dreams
That you don’t even understand
It’s just like me to overstay my welcome, man

Let’s sing and rhyme
Let’s give it one more time
Let’s show the kids how to do it
Fine fine, fine

Oh…

I just have to get that off my chest
Now It’s time to get on with the rest
All the best, all the best
All the best, all the best, best, best

It’s just like me to overstay my welcome bless
Let’s sing and rhyme
Let’s give it one more time
Let’s show the kids how to do it
Fine fine, fine

Let’s sing and rhyme
Let’s give it one more time
Let’s show the kids how to do it
Fine fine, fine
Fine

Überlin

Hey now, take your pills, and
Hey now, make your breakfast
Hey now, comb your hair and off to work
Crash land, no illusions
No collision, no intrusion
My imagination runs away

I know, I know, I know what I am chasing
I know, I know, I know that this is changing me

I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
I am flying on a star, star, star
I will make it through the day and then the day
Becomes the night
I will make it through the night

Hey now, take the U-Bahn
5 stops, change the station
Hey now, don’t forget that change will save you
Hey now, count a thousand, million people
That’s astounding
Chasing through the city with their stars on bright

I know, I know, I know what I am chasing
I know, I know, I know that this is changing me

I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
I am flying on a star, star, star
I will make it through the day and then the day
Becomes the night
I will make it through the night

I don’t mind repeating
I am not complete
I have never been the gifted type
Hey man, tell me something
Are you off to somewhere?
Do you… want to go with me tonight?

I know, I know, I know that this is changing
We walk the streets to feel the ground
I’m chasing: ÜBerlin

I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
I am flying on a star, star, star
I will make it through the day and then the day
Becomes the night
I will make it through the night

Oh My Heart

The kids have a new take, a new take on faith
Pick up the pieces, get carried away
I came home to a city half-erased
I came home to face what we faced

This place needs me here to start
This place is the beat of my heart

Oh my heart
Oh my heart
(Oh my heart)
Oh my heart
Oh my heart
(Oh my heart)

The storm didn’t kill me, the government changed
Hear the answer and call, hear this song, rearranged
Hear the trees, the ghosts and the buildings, sing
With the wisdom to reconcile this thing

It’s sweet and it’s sad and it’s true
How it doesn’t look bitter on you

Oh my heart
Oh my heart
(Oh my heart)
Oh my heart
Oh my heart
(Oh my heart)

Mother and father, I stand beside you
The good of this world might help see me through
This place needs me here to start
This place is the beat of my heart

Oh my heart
Oh my heart
(Oh my heart)
Oh my heart
Oh my heart
(Oh my heart)

Oh my heart
Oh my heart
(Oh my heart)
Oh my heart
Oh my heart
(Oh my heart)

It Happened Today

This is not a parable
This is a terrible
This is a terrible thing

Yes I will rhyme that after
After all I’ve done today
I have earned my wings

It happened today. Hooray! Hooray!
It happened. Hip, hip, hooray!

We’ll leave the allegory
To another Bible story
Out of deference, defiance, and choice

And close in on a promise
After all I’ve done today
I have earned my voice

It happened today. Hooray! Hooray!
It happened. Hip, hip, hooray!

Oh…

Every Day Is Yours to Win

With the walk (walk), and the talk (talk)
And the tick tock clock (clock)

With the rock (rock) and the roll (roll)
And the bridge (bridge) and the toll (toll)
With the brilliance (brilliance), and the light (light)
And the stink (stink), and the fight (fight)
And the road ahead of you

I cannot tell a lie
It’s not all cherry pie
But it’s all there waiting for you, yeah you

Hey Yeah! Hey Yeah!
Hey Yeah! I know

With the warp (warp), and the wooze (wooze)
And the subterfuge (… fuge)
Does it all look bitter and blue?

While I’m nothing but confused (confused)
With nothing left to lose (lose)
And if you buy that, I’ve got a bridge, for you

Hey Yeah! (Hey Yeah!)
Hey Yeah! (Hey Yeah!)
Hey Yeah! I know

Hey Yeah! (Hey Yeah!)
Hey Yeah! (Hey Yeah!)
Hey Yeah! I know

Oh…

Every day is new again
Every day is yours to win
And that’s how heroes are made

I wanted (I wanted) to win (to win)
So I said it again
That’s how heroes are made

Hey Yeah! (Hey Yeah!)
Hey Yeah! (Hey Yeah!)
Hey Yeah! I know

Hey Yeah! (Hey Yeah!)
Hey Yeah! (Hey Yeah!)
Hey Yeah! I know

Ah…

Mine Smell Like Honey

I would dare you, but I know I don’t need to
You’re going to do just what you want to
You’re going to take the leading chair at the fairground
You’re going to sing the praises of your fruit

Mine smell like honey, uhh
Mine smell like honey, uhh
Mine smell like huh huh huh huh
Honey, uhh

Dig a hole, dig it deeper, deeper
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper
Dig a hole, dig it deeper, deeper
Track a trail of honey through it all

If the end comes faster than we had expected
And predictions lead us to the final fall
If the flowers crack the grain, and weave
The pattern of the pavement
I can hear you shouting over it all

Mine smell like honey, uhh
Mine smell like honey, uhh
Mine smell like huh huh huh huh
Honey, uhh

Dig a hole, dig it deeper, deeper
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper
Dig a hole, dig it deeper, deeper
Track a trail of honey through it all

Dig a hole, dig it deeper, deeper
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper
Dig a hole, dig it deeper, deeper
Track a trail of honey through it all

You track a trail of honey through it all
You track a trail of honey

Walk It Back

Walk it back
Walk it back
Walk it back

What, what would you
Have had me say
Instead of what I said?

Where
Where would I go?
How could I follow that?
Except to do what I did

Which it’s to
Walk it back
Walk it back
Hmmm… Walk it back

Time
Reverse and rewind
Erase and revise
And tried to start again
You
Don’t you turn this around
I have not touch the ground
In I don’t know how long

You say to
Walk it back
Walk it back
Walk it back

Hmmm… Walk it back
Walk it back
Walk it back

Time
Time
Time, it cannot abide
You
You can’t turn away
You asked me to stay
But something needs to change

Why can’t you?

Walk it back
Walk it back
Walk it back

Walk it back
Walk it back
Hmmm… Walk it back

Alligator_Aviator_Autopilot_Antimatter

I feel like an alligator
Climbing up the escalator
Climbing up the escalator, I feel strong

I feel like an aviator pilot (bet you wouldn’t buy it)
I’m feeling violent (betcha bad eye it)
Turn up the fly it, beat

Hey, hey, alligator, you have got a lot to learn
I have got, have got a lot to learn

I feel like an autopilot
I’m heroic strong and silent
I feel like a rage coming under my hood
I feel good and calm like a robot would

I feel like an autopilot
I feel like an autopilot
I am not a hater, hater, hater, hater, hater

Hey, hey, alligator, you have got a lot to learn
I have got, have got a lot to learn

(I feel like a contradiction
I’m a walking science-fiction
I don’t know whichever way to turn
I have got, have got, have got a lot of lot to burn!)

If I didn’t like the way you stared at me
If I didn’t like the way you stared at me!
I could knock the sideways
I could knock you blind
I could show you found to the lost and find

I am not an agitator
I feel like an alligator
Climbing up the escalator…

Hey, hey, alligator, you have got a lot to learn
I have got, have got a lot to learn

(You’ve so much to learn, you’ve got a lot to learn)

That Someone Is You

With the restraint of
New Order covers
Young Marble Giants
I sat… quietly… waiting…
For someone else to make the first move
Someone else to make the first move…

That someone is you
That someone is you!!!
That someone has pulled me up and out of
Cartoon quicksand
Pulled me up and out of me!

And with the fury lock of Sharon Stone Casino
Scarface, Al Pacino, ’74 Torino. I need
Someone else to make the first move
Someone else to make the first move

That someone is you
That someone is you!!!
That someone has pulled me up and out of
Cartoon quicksand
Pulled me up and out of me…
You
Pulled me up and out of cartoon quicksand
Pulled me up and out of me!

Me, Marlon Brando, Marlon Brando and I

We live and dream about the future
Please ask Neil, I need to pow wow, now
Sift through the annals of our flavored times
Our heroes and all their fatal flaws
Me, Marlon Brando, Marlon Brando and I, sing

Lay me down, down, down, down
Lay me down, down, down, down, down
Help me off to sleep
Take me deep again

We live and dream about our heroes
I listened closely, and I said
“I’m not sure where to place myself here, friend
I might pawn the gold rings instead”
The winners write the rule books
The histories and lullabies

Lay me down, down, down, down
Lay me down, down, down, down, down
Help me off to sleep (down, down, down)
Take me deep again (down, down, down)

I heard what you said (Lay me down, down, down, down)
I picture brass rings in your head (Lay me down, down, down, down)
While gold and bronze are… bon bons (down, down, down)
Brass is mixed with lead (down, down, down)

Blue

Feels circus left the stakes a broken ropes world’s useless mug
The ties that bind, ha ha
I can be bad poet
Street poet
Shit poet
Kind poet too

Subway
Almost 4AM
Halloween night
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, faded wisdom, locked karma holders
Convenient

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
You drift in snow
And I drift in snow)

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

Compare a toast
I like that
I understand courage
I still roll with the shout of a character I was married to today
I try to see outside myself
I understand the eyes
Excuse all the highs
Sorry
I am sorry
Ha ha

(What have we learned
I like your face)

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

(Naked and blue
Resentful)

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

PATTI: Cinderella boy
You’ve lost your shoe

Cinderella boy (Blue, blue, blue, blue…)
Your coach awaits (Blue, blue, blue, blue…)
A sun it shines (Blue, blue, blue, blue…)
All over your face (Blue, blue, blue, blue…)
As you sing (Blue, blue, blue, blue…)
Naked and blue (Blue, blue, blue, blue…)
Into me
