Ignoreland

R.E.M.

These bastards stole their power
From the victims of the us v. them years
Wrecking all things virtuous and true
The undermining social-democratic
Downhill slide into abysmal
Lost lamb off the precipice
Into the trickle-down runoff pool

They hypnotized the summer, 1979
Marched into the capital
Brooding, duplicitous, wicked and able
Media-ready, heartless
And labeled super US citizen, super achiever
Mega ultra power-dosing
Relax defense, defense, defense, defense
Yeah, yeah, yeah, fuck

(Yeah, yeah, yeah) Ignoreland
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) Ignoreland
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

The information nation took their clues
From all the sound-bite gluttons
1980, '84, '88, '92 too, too
How to be what you can be
Jump jam junking your energy
How to walk in dignity with throw-up on your shoes

They amplified the autumn, 1979
Calculate the capital
Up the republic my skinny ass
TV tells a million lies
The paper's terrified to report
Anything that isn't handed on a presidential spoon
I'm just profoundly frustrated by all this
So, fuck you, man
Fuck 'em

(Yeah, yeah, yeah) Ignoreland
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) Ignoreland

If they wasn't there we would have created them
Maybe it's true
But I'm resentful all the same
Someone's got to take the blame
I know that this is vitriol
No solution, spleen-venting
But I feel better having screamed
Don't you?

They desecrate the winter, 1979
Capital collateral
Brooding, duplicitous, wicked and able
Media-ready, heartless
And labeled super US citizen, super achiever
Mega ultra power-dosing
Relax defense, defense, defense, defense
Yeah, yeah, yeah, fuck

(Yeah, yeah, yeah) Ignoreland
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) Ignoreland
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) Ignoreland
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

And that take us out of the record
And into the revolution
Take it
