Today's song of the day- REM

Make of this what you will


It's the End of the World as We Know it
REM

That's great! It starts with an earthquake;
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane,
And Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Eye of a hurricane, Listen to yourself churn,
World serves its own needs,
Dummy serve your own needs.
Feed it off an ox, speak, grunt, no, strength,
The Ladder start to clatter witha fear
Fight down, height.
Wire in a fire representing seven games,
And a government for hire at a combat site;
Left of west and coming in a hurry with the furies
Breathing down your neck.
Team by team reporters, baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped.
Look at that low plane.
Fine, Then.
Uh-oh. Overflow population, common food,
But it'll do to save yourself, serve yourself.
World serves its own needs,
Listen to your heart beat,
Dummy with a rapture and the reverend and the right, right.
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light,
Feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
And I feel fine

Six o'clock-- T.V. hour
Don't get caught in foreign towers.
Slash and burn, return.
Listen to yourself churn.
Lock it in, uniforming, book burning, blood letting.
Every motive escalate.
Automotive incinerate.
Light a candle, light a votive.
Step down, step down.
Watch your heel crush, crushed, uh-oh,
This means no fear cavalier, renegade steer clear!
A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies!
Offer me solutions, and offer me alternatives, and I decline!

It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
And I feel fine

The other night I dreamt of knives,
Continental drift divide,
Mountains sit in a line.
LEONARD BERNSTEIN,
Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, BOOM!
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam, bug, net, right?
Right.

It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's time I had some time alone)
And I feel fine...fine...

Just a note, this is not solely a politically motivated post. this is a great song. One of the hardest songs in the world to memorize, but a helluva lot of fun to sing along to. Literally, I have no idea what it's supposed to be about. But that's OK. Anyone hear No Doubt's cover? Not too shabby.

Good choice for the song of the day, I was thinking the same thing.

Well, I don't feel particularly fine...


But it is a great song!
Of course, I always lose the lyrics before the end of the first verse, but it's fun nonetheless.

i was singing this song inside my head yesterday, oddly enough.

maybe it's not that odd at all.

it's the end of the world.

was rather hoping for 'bad day' myself, what with all this teflon whitewashed presidency and everybody being sick of being jerked around, etc.

But Bad Day doesn't have the same joyful irony. Everybody knows why they released that one
