    Well your CD collection looks shiny and costly
    How much did you pay for your bad Moto Guzzi?
    And how much did you spend on your black leather jacket?
    Is it you or your parents in this income tax bracket?

    Now tickets to concerts and drinking at clubs
    Sometimes for music that you haven't even heard of
    And how much did you pay for your rock'n'roll t-shirt
    That proves you were there
    That you heard of them first?

    How do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle?
    How do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle?
    How do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle?

    So tell me
    How much did you pay for the chunk of his guitar
    The one he ruthlessly smashed at the end of the show?
    And how much will he pay for a brand new guitar
    One which he'll ruthlessly smash at the end of another show?
    And how long will the workers keep building him new ones?
    As long as their soda cans are red, white, and blue ones.
    And how long will the workers keep building him new ones?
    As long as their soda cans are red, white, and blue ones

    Aging black leather and hospital bills
    Tattoo removal and dozens of pills
    Your liver pays dearly now for youthful magic moments
    But rock on completely with some brand new components
    Now how do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle?
    How do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle?
    How do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle?

    So good!

    Excess ain't rebellion
    You're drinking what they're selling
    Your self-destruction doesn't hurt them
    Your chaos won't convert them
    They're so happy to rebuild it
    You'll never really kill it
    Yeah, excess ain't rebellion
    You're drinking what they're selling

    Excess ain't rebellion
    You're drinking,
    You're drinking,
    You're drinking what they're selling

    REM - what's the frequency, kenneth?



    "What's the frequency, Kenneth?" is your Benzedrine, uh-huh
    I was brain-dead, locked out, numb, not up to speed
    I thought I'd pegged you an idiot's dream
    Tunnel vision from the outsider's screen

    I never understood the frequency, uh-huh
    You wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huh

    I'd studied your cartoons, radio, music, TV, movies, magazines
    Richard said, "Withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy"
    A smile like the cartoon, tooth for a tooth
    You said that irony was the shackles of youth

    You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
    I never understood the frequency, uh-huh

    "What's the frequency, Kenneth?" is your Benzedrine, uh-huh
    Butterfly decal, rearview mirror, dogging the scene
    You smile like the cartoon, tooth for a tooth
    You said that irony was the shackles of youth

    You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
    I never understood the frequency, uh-huh
    You wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huh
    I couldn't understand

    You said that irony was the shackles of youth, uh-huh
    I couldn't understand
    You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
    I couldn't understand
    I never understood, don't fuck with me, uh-huh

    Everything's so blurry and everyone's so fake
    And everybody's empty and everything is so messed up
    Pre-occupied without you, I cannot live at all
    My whole world surrounds you, I stumble then I crawl

    You could be my someone you could be my scene
    You know that I'll protect you from all of the obscene
    I wonder what you're doing imagine where you are
    There's oceans in between us but that's not very far

    Can you take it all away
    Can you take it all away
    Well you shoved it in my face
    This pain you gave to me
    Can you take it all away
    Can you take it all away
    Well you shoved it my face

    Everyone is changing, there's no one left that's real
    So make up your own ending and let me know just how you feel
    'Cause I am lost without you, I cannot live at all
    My whole world surrounds you, I stumble then I crawl

    And you could be my someone, you could be my scene
    You know that I will save you from all of the unclean
    I wonder what you're doing, I wonder where you are
    There's oceans in between us but that's not very far

    Can you take it all away
    Can you take it all away
    Well you shoved it in my face
    This pain you gave to me

    Can you take it all away
    Can you take it all away
    Well you shoved it my face
    Explain again to me

    Nobody told me what you thought
    Nobody told me what to say
    Everyone showed you where to turn
    Told you when to runaway

    Nobody told you where to hide
    Nobody told you what to say
    Everyone showed you where to turn
    Showed you when to runaway

    Can you take it all away
    Can you take it all away
    Well you shoved it in my face
    Explain again to me

    Explain again to me!

    My jam on sad days. Like today. It just shouldn't be so f*cking hard.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqYWcp1JH7Y

    The first snow
    First winter of my life
    I was told it was the height of me
    The first dance
    Well, the first one that counted
    Felt like my blood was built my from crackling lights
    All this ancient wildness
    That we don't understand
    The first sound of a heartbeat
    To riots roaring on
    This is not the love you've had before
    This is something else
    This is something else
    This is not the same as other days
    This is something else
    This is something else
    It shouldn't need to be so fucking hard
    This is life on earth
    It's just life on earth
    It doesn't need to be the end of you, or me
    This is life on earth
    It's just life on earth

    The first light
    First light on the silent shore
    Just the ships at anchor, me and you
    The way home
    This is always the way home
    So you can rip that map to shreds, my dear
    But all we ever wanted
    Seemed miles and miles from here
    In the first days in a strange new land
    Awaken beasts in us
    This is not the love you've had before
    This is something else
    This is something else
    This is not the same as other days
    This is something else
    This is something else
    It shouldn't need to be so fucking hard
    This is life on earth
    It's just life on earth
    It doesn't need to be the end of you, or me
    This is life on earth
    It's just life on earth
    It shouldn't need to be so fucking hard
    This is life on earth
    It's just life on earth
    It doesn't need to be the end of you, or me
    This is life on earth
    It's just life on earth

    Well I'm up on the eleventh floor and I'm watching the cruisers below
    Ya know my heart's in the basement, my weekend's at an all-time low
    He's down on the street and he's trying hard to pull sister Flo
    As she's hoping to score, well I can't see her letting him go
    Walk out of her heart, walk out of her mind, oh no no

    She's so swishy in her satin and tat
    In her frock coat and bipperty-bopperty hat
    Oh God, I could do better than that

    She's an old-time ambassador of sweet-talking, night-walking games
    And she's known in the darkest clubs for pushing ahead of the dames
    If she says she can do it then she can do it, she don't make false claims
    But she's a queen and such are queens that your laughter is stuck in their brains

    Now she's leading him on, and she'll lay him right down
    Yes, she's leading him on, and she'll lay him right down
    But it could have been me, yes, it could have been me
    Why didn't I say, why didn't I say, no, no, no

    She's so swishy in her satin and tat
    In her frock coat and bipperty-bopperty hat
    Oh God, I could do better than that

    So I lay down a while and I gaze at my hotel wall
    Oh, the cot feels so cold that it don't feel like no bed at all
    Yes, I lay down a while and I gaze at my hotel wallOh he's down on the street so I throw both his bags down the hall
    And I'm phoning a cab 'cause my stomach feels small
    There's a taste in my mouth but it's no taste at all
    Well it could have been me, yes it could have been me
    Why didn't I say, why didn't I say

    She's so swishy in her satin and tat
    In her frock coat and bipperty-bopperty hat
    Oh God, I could do better than that
