COLLAPSE INTO NOW: ALLIGATOR_AVIATOR_AUTOPILOT_ANTIMATTER

Easily one of my favorite songs on the new album.  Fast paced, driven, weird lyrics, and Peaches?!  She's such a nut ... good for her ... she sounds great and compliments Michael Stipe very well.  Part of this album's testosterone trilogy.  Way to man up, boys.



ALLIGATOR_AVIATOR_AUTOPILOT_ANTIMATTER

I feel like an alligator
Climbing up the escalator
Climbing up the escalator
I feel strong

I feel like an aviator pilot
Bet you wouldn't buy it
I'm feeling violent
Betcha beady eye it
Turn up and fly it
Beat

Hey, hey, alligator, you've got a lot to learn
I have got, have got a lot to learn

I feel like an autopilot
I'm heroic strong and silent
I feel like a rage coming under my hood
I feel good and calm like a robot would
I feel like an autopilot
I feel like an autopilot
I am not a hater, hater, hater, hater, hater

Hey, hey, alligator, you've got a lot to learn
I have got, have got a lot to learn

I feel like a contradiction
I'm a walking science fiction
I don't know which way to turn
I've got a lot to burn
I've got a lot a lot to burn

If I didn't like the way you stared at me
If I didn't like the way you stared at me
I could knock you sideways, I could knock you blind
I could show your found to the lost and find
I am not an agitator
I feel like an agitator
Climbing up the escalator

Hey, hey, alligator, you've got a lot to learn
I have got, have got a lot to learn

You've got so much to learn
You got a lot to learn


The lead on this is sick.  Wait, are you sure this is an R.E.M. song?  Was that P Buck?  I'm not sure, but it rips ...
