What If We Give It Away? Lyrics

by REM

On the outside, underneath the wall
All the money couldn't buy
You're mistaken no one's standing there
For the record no one tried
Oh, I try to

What if we give it away?

Overlooking with a hollow eye
What's pretending isn't right
Eye for order, a hand for what's in line
Couldn't follow, couldn't write
Oh, I try to

What if we give it away?

And our life is fine here
Stitch it on your tie here

Here's the trailer Tom
A year has come and gone
We're not moving, wasn't right
Take the order, sew it on your tie
We couldn't follow, couldn't try
Oh, I try to

What if we give it away?
What if we give it away?
