Cuyahoga [Live In Dublin] (Live In Dublin)

Cuyahoga [Live In Dublin] (Live In Dublin)

R.E.M.

Let's put our heads together and start a new country up
Our father's father's father tried, erased the parts he didn't like
Let's try to fill it in, bank the quarry river, swim
We knee-skinned it you and me, we knee-skinned that river red
This is where we walked, this is where we swam
Take a picture here, take a souvenir

This land is the land of ours, this river runs red over it
We knee-skinned it you and me, we knee-skinned that river red
And we gathered up our friends, bank the quarry river, swim
We knee-skinned it you and me, underneath the river bed
This is where we walked, this is where we swam
Take a picture here, take a souvenir
Cuyahoga, Cuyahoga, gone

Let's put our heads together and start a new country up
Up underneath the river bed we'll burn the river down
This is where they walked, swam, hunted, danced and sang
Take a picture here, take a souvenir
Cuyahoga, Cuyahoga, gone

Rewrite the book and rule the pages
Saving face, secured in faith
Bury, burn the waste behind you

This land is the land of ours, this river runs red over it
We are not your allies, we cannot defend
This is where they walked, this is where they swam
Take a picture here, take a souvenir
Cuyahoga, Cuyahoga, gone
Cuyahoga, Cuyahoga, gone
