Me, my thoughts are flower strewn
Ocean storm, bayberry moon.
I have got to leave to find my way.
Watch the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes.
Nothing is going my way.
R.E.M. - "Find the River"
I cried the other night
I can't even say why
Fluorescent flat caffeine lights
Its furious balancing
I'm the screen, the blinding light
I'm the screen, I work at night
I see today with a newsprint fray
My night is colored headache grey
Don't wake me with so much.
The ocean machine is set to nine
I'll squeeze into heaven and valentine
My bed is pulling me,
R.E.M. - "Daysleeper"
Comes from somewhere
that they would just as soon forget
At the summer camp where you volunteered
No one saw your face, no one saw your fear
if that apparition had just appeared
Took you up and away
from this base and sheer
Of your teenage station
no one remembers
and nobody cares
R.E.M - "Supernatural Superserious"
(Stipe is my favorite musical poet)
