Hope Lyrics - R.E.M.

Review The Song (1)

(Buck/Mills/Stipe/Leonard Cohen)

You want to go out Friday
And you want to go forever
You know that it sounds childish
That you dreamt of alligators
You hope that we are with you
And you hope you're recognized
You want to go forever
You see it in my eyes
I'm lost in the confusion
And it doesn't seem to matter
You really can't believe it
And you hope it's getting better

You want to trust the doctors
Their procedure is the best
But the last try was a failure
sponsored links
And the intern was a mess
And they did the same to Matthew
And he bled 'til Sunday night
They're saying don't be frightened
But you're weakened by the sight of it
You lock into a pattern
And you know that it's the last ditch
You're trying to see through it
And it doesn't make sense
But they're saying don't be frightened
And they're killing alligators
And they're hog-tied
And accepting of the struggle

You want to trust religion
And you know it's allegory
But the people who are followers
Have written their own story
So you look up to the heavens
And you hope that it's a spaceship
And it's something from your childhood
You're thinking don't be frightened

You want to climb the ladder
You want to see forever
You want to go out Friday
And you want to go forever
And you want to cross your DNA
To cross your DNA with something reptile

And you're questioning the sciences
And questioning religion
You're looking like an idiot
And you no longer care
And you want to bridge the schism,
A built-in mechanism to protect you
And you're looking for salvation
And you're looking for deliverance
You're looking like an idiot
And you no longer care
'Cause you want to climb the ladder
You want to go forever
And you want to go out Friday
You want to go forever

Creepy Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/14/11

This song always reminds me of terminal illness. Regardless of what kind of personal revelations or dreams you have, it doesn't change the fact that you are still going to die, and yes, it could be a very painful death. What's worse in these situations is that others will chop away at you trying desperately to save you, and that will probably hurt as much as death itself, if not more. Every night the Grim Reaper shows up in your room, and he will always smile, turn to you, and say "not yet".

Hope is the desire for other people to make your situation better...
