Aftermath Lyrics

by REM

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 comin' 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 runner's 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
