Diminished Lyrics

by REM

I watched you fall
I think I pushed
Maybe I'm crazy
Maybe diminished
Maybe I`m innocent
Maybe I'm finished
Maybe I blacked out
How do I play this?

I will give my best today
I will give myself away
I have never hurt anything
Is the jury wavering?
Do they know I sing?

Maybe I'm crazy
Maybe diminished
How do I
How do I play this?

Jealous lover, self defense
Protective brother, chemical dependence
I'll consult the I ching, I'll consult the TV
Ouija, oblique strategies
I'll consult the law books for precedents
Can I charm the jury?

I will give my best today
I will give myself away
I have never hurt anything
Is the justice wavering?
Does she know I sing
That song?
Sing along
Sing along
Sing along

I watched you fall
I think I pushed

Maybe they'll see me
Maybe they'll say
I can see the truth in his statement
Smallpox blanket, no way
Can I charm the jury, my defense?

Maybe I'm crazy
Maybe diminished
Maybe I loved you
Baby I loved you
Baby I loved you
Baby I loved you
Baby I'm finished

I will give my best today
I will give myself away
I have never hurt anything
Is the justice wavering?
Does she know I sing
That song?
Sing along
(I will never hurt anything)
Sing along
(I will never hurt anything)
Sing along

I have given myself away
I have given my best today
I have never hurt anything
Is the justice wavering?
Does she know I loved you?
Does she know I loved you?
Does she know I sing?

I feel great I lied
To save your feelin's
Truth can be my
Hands smashed through
The ceilin'
I lost an arm
No one harmed you
Diplomatically alarmed her
Sobbed away through my, my thin skin

And I am not over you
I am not over you
I am not over you
