Harborcoat Lyrics

by REM

They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it's all that you've got
A metal shivs on wood push through our back
There's a splinter in your eye and it reads react

They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we ditched the books but the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown

Please find my harborcoat
Can't go outside without it
Find my harborcoat
Can't go outside without it

They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it's all that you've got
A metal shivs on wood push through our back
There's a splinter in your eye and it reads react
R E A C T

Please find my harborcoat
Can't go outside without it
Find my harborcoat
I can't go outside without it

They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks and collared their clothes
Then we ditched the books but the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown
She said

Please find my harborcoat
Can't go outside without it
Find my harborcoat
I can't go outside without it
