COLLAPSE INTO NOW: UBERLIN

Another new track from the new album.  This is my favorite track from the new album, it would've fit in well on Automatic For The People or Up.  The lyrics are great and the whole song just fits together quite nicely.



UBERLIN
Hey now take your pills
And
Hey now make your breakfast
Hey now comb your hair and off to work

Crash land no illusions
No collision no intrusion
My imagination run away

I know, I know, I know what I am chasing
I know, I know, I know that this is changing me

I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
I am flying on a star (a star, a star)
I will make it through the day and then the day becomes the night
I will make it through the night

Hey now take the u-bahn
Five stops, change the station
Hey now don't forget the change will save you

Hey now count a thousand million people
That's astounding
Chasing through the city with their stars on bright

I know, I know, I know what I am chasing
I know, I know, I know that this is changing me

I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
I am flying on a star (a star, a star)
I will make it through the day and then the day becomes the night
I will make it through the night

I don't mind repeating
I am not complete
I have never been the gifted type

Hey man
Tell me something
Are you off to somewhere?
Do you want to go with me tonight?

I know, I know, I know that this is changing
We walk the streets to feel the ground
I'm chasing Uberlin

I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
I am flying on a star (a star, a star)
I will make it through the day and then the day becomes the night
I will make it through the night


This song has a lot of depth to it.  Again, it fits together well and is fun to play. Enjoy!
