The Ascent Of Man Lyrics - R.E.M.

Review The Song (4)



So hesitation pulled me back
I'm stronger when I don't attract
In your eyes I'm a lamb without a rack
And I am getting confused
I'm a cactus trying to be a canoe
As you pan for ore
In the desert, floored
I say to you

That I could never imagine a place so beautiful
I could never steal your gold away.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah...

[I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you.]

My book is called "The Ascent Of Man"
sponsored links
I marked your chapter with a catamaran
The accent's off
But I am what I am

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah...

[I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you.]

I looked for you, it's my last grandstand
A motorscootered goat legged Pan
Figure eighting in quicksand ...

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah...

[I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you.]

[I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you.]

So hesitation pulled me back
I'm so in love I don't attract
And with my hands tied I won't crack
['Cause in my mind I called you back.]

This is my take | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/5/2008

A destructive love, very different people. The caller is a person he loves but knows there is no way it would work. He doesn't return the call. The P in "pan" should be capitalized, "Pan" as in mythology. Pan didn't have good luck with women.



My take | Reviewer: CWT | 2/5/2008

The singer thinks of himself as a modern Pan.

This is a story of a destructive love, very different people. The caller is a person he loves but knows there is no way it would work. He doesn't return the call. The P in "pan" should be capitalized, "Pan" as in mythology. Pan didn't have good luck with women.

...What?!? What's he trying to say? | Reviewer: Luigifan | 11/12/2007

...Okay, the lyrics are arranged like gibberish. Does anybody have any clue what this is supposed to mean? i certainly don't. Most R.E.M. songs are a little confusing, but nothing that can't be deciphered. But this... this is something else. Specifically, it's a labyrinth. I can't figure it out at all...
