“Find The River” by R.E.M.

“Leave the road and memorize. This life that pass before my eyes. Nothing is going my way.”

Where people drown and people serve
Don’t be shy, you just deserve
Is only just light years to go

Watch the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way

There’s no one left to take the lead
But I tell you and you can see
We’re closer now than light years to go

Pick up here and chase the ride

The river to the ocean goes
A fortune for the undertow

There is nothing left to throw
Of ginger, lemon, indigo
Coriander stem and rose of hay

Strength and courage overrides
The privileged and weary eyes
Of river poet search naiveté

Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
All of this is coming your way


I'm routinely overestimated.
