Official lyrics to DISCOVERER! (as transcribed by GAF)

Quote:
Hey baby, this is not a challenge
It just means that I love you
As much as I always said I did

I was wrong
I have been laughable wrong
Sandpaper, paper mache, chalk,
And hung out wet

Oh, the city
And your skin now
Na na na na na na
I didn't have to be afraid
I didn't have to feel so stupid
I can see myself. I can feel...

That just the slightest bit of finesse
Might have made a little less mess
But it was what it was
Let's all get on with it, now!

Dicoverer! Discoverer! Discoverer! Discoverer!
Laughing! Yuck! Discoverer!

Floating across Houston
This is where I am
I see the city rise up tall
The opportunities and possibilities
I have never felt so called
Remember the vodka espresso night of discovery
Remember that? Laughing, discovery
Oh how I look back and reflect
How I felt it
How it set
I don't have to feel so wrong
Now I wake up dreaming saffron, turmeric, and brass

With just the slightest bit of finesse
Might have made a little less mess
But it was what it was
Let's all get on with it, now!

Discoverer!

There was a quote from Stipe recently that suggested that the songs on Collapse Into Now are written from the point of view of the same protagonist, unless I was reading too much into it.

i've been one to rag on anything post "New Adventures", but i just went back to "Around The Sun" and wow, it really is a beautiful album. the new single is pretty awesome as well. glad that i'm in an REM kick just in time for their new album.

Ahhh, all this ATS is almost tempting me to listen to it straight through.

I think I'd rather watch a Dane Cook comedy special.

I like the title track (except for that extended outro). I Wanted to Be Wrong and The Boy in the Well are probably my favorite two on the album.

Songs I like from ATS:

Leaving New York
Electron Blue
The Outsiders
Boy In The Well (especially the live version)
The Ascent of Man

Songs I find boring off of ATS:

Make It All Okay
Final Straw
I Wanted To Be Wrong
High Speed Train
The Worst Joke Ever

Certainly ATS is R.E.M.'s worst album, but it has some decent moments IMO

If you weren't so high on your hippie wacky tabaccy, you'd have realized I was quoting Discoverer.

We drew names among the siblings and step-siblings, and I found out yesterday I'm getting the recent REM DVD (along with It Might Get Loud). Yay!
