R.E.M.

R.E.M. was an American rock band from Athens, Georgia, formed in 1980 by singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry.

Hey there now young ?
Swing alone, quote prescriptions
Keep them guessing which bed you crawled from
Justify, just deny
Was it fun?
Your time has come
What have you done?
What have you done?

That's when the insults start to sting
You can't remember anything
The chorus chiming
Every chorus the machine of God
Is singin'

It's the poison that in measures brings
Illuminating vision
It's the knowing with a wink that we expect in
Southern women
It's the wolf that knows which root to dig
To save itself
It's the octopus that crawled back to the sea

That's when the insults start to sting
You can't remember anything
The chorus chiming
Every chorus the machine of God
Hey

Hammered shooting plywood in the backyard
Laughin' 'cause the racket makes the blackbird sing
Like the holy terror
Suck the marrow from the bone
Since you're always burning books
You got the chorus and the ring

That's when the insults start to sting
You can't remember anything
The chorus chiming
Every chorus the machine sings.

That's when the insults start to sting
You can't remember anything
The chorus chiming
Every chorus the machine sings.

That's when the calibration brittle
As a step It's you, the gold ring and the ? museum
? than a ? gold ring
Gold ring. 

Sing, sing, sing, sing
