RANDOM SONG LYRIC

R.E.M.
Beat A Drum

The sun reflected in the back of my eye.
I knocked my head against the sky.

The dragonflies are busy buzzing me.
A seahorse as if we were in the sea.

Halfway from coal, halfway to diamond.
My fall knocked a mean chip out of me.

I'm gathering as far as I can reach.
We're perched up on a precipice
And this is what I've seen.

This is all I want, it's all I need.
This is all I am, it's everything.


This is all I want, it's all I need.

A bluejay hectors from the felled Catalpa tree.
A doctorate in science and a theologian's dream.

The dragonflies are trying to lecture me.
The seahorses if we were in the sea.

This is all I want, it's all I need.
This is all I am, it's everything.


This is all I want, it's all I need.

Beat a drum for me, like a butterfly wing.
Tropical storm across the ocean.

Don't explain, I'm sure I'll want to know
Don't forget, we're just halfway from coal.

This is all I want, it's all I need.
This is all I am, it's everything.


This is all I want, it's all I need.
