R.E.M.
The Great Beyond

I�ve watched the stars fall silent from your eyes
All the sights that I have seen
I can�t believe that I believed I wished
That you could see
There�s a new planet in the solar system
There is nothing up my sleeve

I�m pushing an elephant up the stairs
I�m tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

And all this talk of time
Talk is fine
And I don�t want to stay around
Why can�t we pantomime, just close our eyes
And sleep sweet dreams
Me and you with wings on our feet

I�m pushing an elephant up the stairs
I�m tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

I�m breaking through
I�m bending spoons
I�m keeping flowers in full bloom
I�m looking for answers from the great beyond

I want the hummingbirds, the dancing bears
Sweetest dreams of you
Look into the stars
Look into the moon

I�m pushing an elephant up the stairs
I�m tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

I�m breaking through
I�m bending spoons
I�m keeping flowers in full bloom
I�m looking for answers from the great beyond

I�m breaking through
I�m bending spoons
I�m keeping flowers in full bloom
I�m looking for answers from the great

(repeat following two verses 3 x each)
I�m breaking through
I�m bending spoons
I�m keeping flowers in full bloom
I�m looking for answers from the great beyond

I�m breaking through
I�m bending spoons
I�m keeping flowers in full bloom
I�m looking for answers from the great
