Bittersweet Me Lyrics

by REM

I move across, innocence lost
All flashing pulsar
I move across the earth in my new pattern shirt
I pass satellites

You're so bitter, your complaint
I can't give you anything
I don't know who you're livin' for
I don't know who you are anymore

I'd sooner chew my leg off
Than be trapped in this
How easy you think of all of this
As bittersweet me

I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore

I move across, candy floss
I move like a tank
I move across the room with a heart full of gloom
Stronger than you think

Oh my peer
Your veneer is wearing thin and cracking
The surface informs that underneath
Underneath is lacking

I'd sooner chew my leg off
Than be trapped in this
How easy you think of all of this
As bittersweet me

I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore

You move across, innocence lost
All static and desire
You're blue in the face from navel gaze
You set yourself on fire

You strip down and lay yourself out
I know you can't fake it
But are you tired and naked?
Are you tired and naked?

I'd sooner chew my leg off
Than be trapped in this
How easy you think of all of this
As bittersweet me

I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore
