Receiving department, 3 A.M.
Staff cuts have socked up the overage
Directives are posted, no callbacks, complaints
Everywhere is calm
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes
All talk of circadian rhythm

I see today with a newsprint fray
My night is colored headache gray
Daysleeper

Daysleeper

The bull and the bear are marking their territories
They're leading the blind with their international glories
I am 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 gray
Don't wake me with so much
Daysleeper

I cried the other night
I can't even say why
Fluorescent flat caffeine lights
It's furious balancing

I am 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 gray
Don't wake me with so much

The ocean machine is set to 9
I'll squeeze into heaven and Valentine
My bed is pulling me, gravity

nead to hear it more....
I don't listen to REM very often, but this has always been my favorite REM song
Poostabber.
Painting a vignette with words and music. It's not often done with sincerity or honesty, and that makes me appreciate this cut more.
Strong song from an album that probably not many people got to hear.
I work nights and take care of my kids by day. I suppose I should identify with this song in some way. I still can't relate to the sound of one Stipe whining. :roll:
This song makes me want to start drinking, heavily.
i gave it a 6 for being "pretty good." need to hear it more.
Nice selection. Haven't heard this in a while.
I'm an REM fan, but this song doesn't do much for me.
Great song from a great album :)
Great song.
