Man-Sized Wreath Lyrics

by REM

Turn on the TV
And what do I see?
A pageantry of empty gestures
All lined up for me, wow

Id have thought by now
We would be ready to proceed
But a tearful hymn to tug the heart
And a man-sized wreath, oww

Throw it on the fire
Throw it in the air
Kick it out on the dance floor
Like you just dont care, oh
Give me some

Wave the palms, still the arms
Fists in the air
A motorcade of a night strings
Shows the people that you care, oww

Nature abhors a vacuum
But whats between your ears?
Your judgment cluttered with fearful thoughts
A headlights and a deer, oww

Throw it on the fire
Throw it in the air
Kick it out on the dance floor
Like you just dont care

Look at what Ive found
Everybody look around
Everybody looking like
They just dont care, oh
Give me some

Well, Im not deceived
By pomp and odious conceit
But a tearful hymn to tug the heart
And a man-sized wreath, oww

Throw it on the fire
Throw it in the air
Kick it out on the dance floor
Like you just dont care

Look at what Ive found
Everybody look around
Everybody looking
Like they just dont care

Throw it on the fire
Throw it in the air
Kick it out on the dance floor
Like you just dont care, oh
Give me some, give me some
Give me some
