I want the sun to shine on me
I want the truth to set me free
I wish the followers would lead
with a voice so strong it could knock me to my knees

hold on world 'cause you don't know what's coming
hold on world 'cause I'm not jumping off
hold onto this boy a little longer
take another trip around the sun

if I jumped into the ocean to believe
If I climbed a mountain would I have to reach?
do I even dare to speak?--to dream?--believe?
give me a voice so strong
I can question what I have seen

hold on world 'cause you don't know what's coming
hold on world 'cause I'm not jumping off
hold onto this boy a little longer
take another trip around the sun

around the sun
around the sun
around the sun
let my dreams set me free.
believe. believe.
now now now now now now

Rated it high. Like the idea of a new REM song. But I understand the 'meh' feeling... It's like voting Dem; ya gotta do it even if you no longer really believe...
Vocals are strained, but I also like that it sounds a little like their old stuff.

A decent song from what is really a disappointing album for me. I've been a big REM fan for almost 25 years (gasp! Can it have been that long??), but this album really does not do it for me for some reason. Oh well....

Yeah....that's what it is. I hear all of the great old stuff in his voice, but not much else.
Wow, this really isn't one of Stipe's better vocal performances, is it?
I'm very very happy with the new album! Gives me a warm feeling. I still feel the magic of this great band.
Meh, this is the whiney-Stipe. Kinda gives me a headache. Not good morning fare.
Yeah, I liked it, haven't been into REM since Monster. Will check this new one out.
