So Fast, So Numb - R.E.M.

Movin' through rough waters motel boy,
And swimming in your sleep.
How could I be so blind, mis-sighted,
Not to see there's something wounded deep.
Anyone could scratch your surface now,
It's all amphetamine.
You're blasting yourself into the present
Learn some vast indignity, stay that.

You say that, you hate it.
You want to recreate it.
I've been around, I've been your lover.
I let it go at Kill Devil Hill.
You're coming onto something so fast so numb that you can't even feel.

You're drinking the wrong dream now baby.
You do-si-do, saddo.
You're you in cartilage, shark eyed, shock horror, all present tense
And boy you're blood is running cold.
Listen, this is now, this is here, this is me
This is what I wanted you to see.
That was then, was that, that is gone, this is past,
You cast yourself cast, passed by, thrown down fast, you used to say:

You say that you hate it.
You want to recreate it.
I've this round, I've played your lover.
I've played it out to the hilt. Ohhhh.
You're comin' on with something so fast, so numb that you can't even feel.

You love it. You hate it. You want to recreate it.
Now, this is here, this is me.
This is what I wanted you to see.
That was then, was that, that is gone.
That is what I wanted you to feel.

You love it. You hate it. You spit it out, the bitter pill. Ohhhh.
I've been around, I've been your lover.
I let it go at Kill Devil Hill.
You're coming onto something so fast, so numb that you can't even feel.

I've played this round, I've played your lover.
I've played it out to the hilt. Ohhhh.
You're comin' on with something so fast, so numb that you can't even feel.
You played around, you played me lover,
I let it go at Kill Devil Hill.
You're moving so hard, so fast, so numb that you can't even feel.
