Sing for The Submarine - R.E.M.

It feels, in dreams,
That everything's there for you
The city breathes and pulses
Its fuel electron blue

I knew, that you, could see right through it
So this is where you give in to the machine
Lift up your voice, feel gravity's pull
And drown out the siren's ring

Ohhhh

It's all here where I keep it
It's all in the submarine
It's all a lot less frightening
than we would've had it be
And that's the good news, my darling
It is what it's going to be
So sing, sing for the submarine

I tried to explain how it all begins
How it's all destroyed and built again
I knew, that you, could not believe me

But now you're here and it's different
How the light shines in your eyes
And every second a century
It's then that I realized
The world as we know it
The High speed train
We'll pick it all up and start again

It's all here where I keep it
It's all in the submarine
It's all a lot less frightening
than we would've had it be
And that's the good news, my darling
It is what it's going to be
So sing, sing for the submarine

The city did not collapse in a shudder
The rain it never came
At least my confessions made you laugh
I know it's a little crazed
But these dreams, they seem, so real to me

It's all here where I keep it
It's all in the submarine
It's all a lot less frightening
than we would've had it be
And that's the good news, my darling
It is what it's going to be
So sing, sing for the submarine

And so this is where you trust me
That this where it begins
It's all a lot less frightening
We're here in the interim
Tyrell and his mechanical owl
A moth disguised as a leaf.
Don't tell me what tomorrow brings
We climb into the hidden machine and
sing sing sing sing sing sing
sing sing for the submarine
