The Ascent Of Man (Album Version)

The Ascent Of Man (Album Version)

R.E.M.

So hesitation pulled me back
I'm stronger when I don't attract
In your eyes I'm a lamb without a rack
And I am getting confused.
I'm a cactus trying to be a canoe.
As you pan for ore
In the desert, floored,
I say to you.

That I could never imagine a place so beautiful
I could never steal your gold away.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah ...

[i try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you. ]

My book is called "the ascent of man".
I marked your chapter with a catamaran.
The accent's off,
But I am what I am.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah ...

[i try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you.]

I looked for you, it's my last grandstand.
A motorscootered goat legged pan
Figure eighting in quicksand...

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah ...

[i try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you. ]

[i try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you. ]

So hesitation pulled me back
I'm so in love I don't attract.
And with my hands tied I won't crack
