The Lifting (Original Version) (Original Version)

R.E.M.

Grounded five a.m., the night life is comforting,
But gravity is holding you
Once settled into sleep
You have watched
On repeat the story of your life
Across the ceiling
And in review

You said the air was singing
It's calling you, you don't believe
These things you've never seen.

Good morning, how are you?
The weather's fine
The sky is blue
It's perfect for our seminar.

Close your eyes and start to breathe
Allow the noise to recede
You just stay

You said the air was singing
It's calling you, you don't believe
These things you've never seen
Never heard.

Did you hear these ?
Did you hear these voices
Did you hear these voices calling you

Locked into a conference room
We're only what our minds assume
And rationale is leaving you.

This conceit these systems of
I believe your counselor agrees you
Always mark these boundaries now you're free
And with relief.

You said the air was singing
It's calling you, you don't believe
These things you've never seen
Never heard, never dreamed.

You said the air was singing
It's calling you, you don't believe
These things you've never seen
Never heard, never dreamed.

[Repeat: x17]
Never

Once you had a dream
Of oceans and sunken cities
Memories of things you've never known
And you have left alone.
