Welcome To The Occupation Lyrics - R.E.M.

Review The Song (1)



(Berry/Buck/Mills/Stipe)



Hang your collar up inside
Hang your dollar on me
Listen to the water still
Listen to the causeway
You are mad and educated
Primitive and wild
Welcome to the occupation

Here we stand and here we fight
All your fallen heroes
Held and dyed and skinned alive
Listen to the Congress fire
Offering the educated
Primitive and loyal
Welcome to the occupation

Hang your collar up inside
sponsored links
Hang your freedom higher
Listen to the buyer still
Listen to the Congress
Where we propagate confusion
Primitive and wild
Fire on the hemisphere below

Sugar cane and coffee cup
Copper, steel and cattle
An annotated history
The forest for the fire
Where we open up the floodgates
Freedom reigns supreme
Fire on the hemisphere below
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me

What Can You Say? | Reviewer: greg allen | 3/29/2008

This is a classic in my REM book. Wonderful guitar stuff, the staggering REM approach to putting poetry into lyrical form, and the bitchin' "listen to me" vocal at the end.

One of those songs you want to cover, but not until you have it down just so...
