The Great Beyond Lyrics


by R.E.M.. From Man on the Moon.


I've watched the stars fall silent from your eyes
All the sights that I have seen
I can't believe that I believed I wished that you could see
There's a new planet in the solar system
There is nothing up my sleeve

I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
I'm tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder, a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

In all this talk of time, talk is fine
But I don't want to stay around
Why can't we pantomime,
Just close our eyes and sleep sweet dreams,
Being here with wings on our feet?

I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
I'm tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder, a piano falls
Crashing to the ground
I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the Great Beyond

I want the hummingbirds, the dancing bears
Sweetest dreams of you
I'll look into the stars
I'll look into the moon

I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
I'm tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder, a piano falls
Crashing to the ground
I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the Great Beyond

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the Great
Answers from the Great
Answers

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the Great Beyond

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
(Here's a little agit for the never-believer)
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
(Here's a little ghost for the offering)
I'm looking for answers from the Great
Answers from the Great
Answers

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
(Here's a little agit for the never-believer)
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
(Here's a little ghost for the offering)
I'm looking for answers from the Great Beyond

[BOB:] Look, uh ... Tony Clifton is gonna go on Taxi
next week, and that should ... uh, uh ...
let him blow off steam and relieve the stress, K?

[GEORGE:] Bob... Bob, Bob, Bob. Andy needs to relax.
This is your job: You have to take him away
from all of this!
