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 run 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, five 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
berlin

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 second that statement.  Funny and wonderful.

Wow! Thanks for that video. It's incredible.

 


They never fully recovered with the absence of Bill Berry - he was a vital member, I never knew how much until the music that followed...  This is "good" but nothing like their early albums.
R.E.M.'s last stand.  Decent.

And they now get to go recline back and retire on a big pile of cash - enjoy it boys, as you had 30 stellar years of producing music I won't ever get tired of.
I get happy EVERY time I hear this played here.
Period.

Sounds like the first album they ever recorded. I love this kind of sound from REM. Welcome to the '10s! This one gets an 8 from me.
