R.E.M. - Aftermath Lyrics




Now the radio stutters. snaps to life.
Some sour song that sets it right.
And when London falls
He'd like to call
But the stars collide.
They're beautiful and much maligned.
In a universe where you see the worst,
And it's up to you to fix it.

Now you've worked it out
And you see it all
And you've worked it out
And you see it all
And you want to shout
How you see it all

It's easy to dismiss the "what's it all about" crowd.
There is no doubt. it's this, here, now.
And you close your eyes.
He's not coming back.
So you work it out, overfeed the cat.
And the plants are dry and they need to drink.
So you do your best. and you flood the sink.
Sit down in the kitchen and cry.

Now you've worked it out
And you see it all
And you've worked it out
And you see it all
And you want to shout
How you see it all

Now the universe left you for a runners lap.
It feels like home when it comes crashing back.
And it makes you laugh
And it makes you cry,
When London falls
And you're still alive.
The radio stutters,
It makes you laugh
And the aftermath,
Open up your eyes.
You're so alive.

Now you've worked it out
And you see it all
And you've worked it out
And you see it all
And you want to shout
How you see it all
How you've worked it out
And you see it all
How you've worked it out
And you see it all

  5. CosmicOli

    One of the few standouts from “Around The Sun”. If only if the rest of the album was this amazing.

  6. Artoooooor

    The video is back!!!

  7. Irene Bengoa

    I love R.E.M

  8. Kama S.

    "beautiful and much-maligned" can describe around the sun as a whole, tbh. sure, the pace is too slow at times and it does suffer from overproduction, but once you get past that...

  9. Lynx Adler

    one original piece of art

  10. tuco468

    I've loved rem since Fables and I still do, however, am I the only rem fan that hates Everybody Hurts?

    Gray Stanberry

    tuco468 it's definitely not my favorite, and I skip it more often then not when I listen to AFTP, but when you're in a certain mood...its there when you need it

  11. Willian Will

    R.E.M.'s music makes me feel understood.

  20. Michael Romano

    Had never seen this video before. Classic R.E.M. music video. Dafuq is going on!?

    Hasan Tawab

    We've turned our reality into simulation and simulation into our reality. The song/video is basically a commentary on this.

    Maurício Rodrigues

    Michael Romano intended shitty green scream

  21. Lezarus

    Qué formidable esta nueva canción de la mítica banda de rock alternativo, fieles a su estilo y concepción musical y de lírica esmeradamente elaborada, bien por Michael y REM!!

  36. bidhrohi12

    Dear R.E.M., I think I speak for everyone when I say we'd totally be cool with you guys taking back the whole breaking up thing, and resuming your awesome work. Music needs you.

    Macsim

    @***** Sticazzi have you ever heard the "Around the sun" album?

  46. Saint318

    Now that was awesome.

  47. gustavokblo

    Obviously GREAT, as pretty much everything R.E.M. has ever done (yep, I love this song too), BUT...
    WHY IN THE HELL, IN THEIR OFFICIAL YT CHANNEL (this one here - duuhh) THE VIDS ARE *NOT* IN HD - at least 720p, FFS!!
    ¬¬'

    Tajl3r

    @gustavokblo who cares about HD buddy it's R.E.M.

    gustavokblo

    @TyLer Dude.. it's 2015.. It's their official channel.. And still videos on 480p? Seriously?

    gustavokblo

    @***** No. It's the official video from this 2004 song (from the album Around The Sun), but to me it's kinda frustrating that in 2015, in their official channel, their videos are not uploaded in HD.. *=/*
