Horse to Water

R.E.M.

Released: March 31, 2008

Album: Accelerate

[Verse 1]
I could have kept my head down
I might have kept my mouth shut
I should have held my own
You lead a horse to water and you watch him drown

[Verse 2]
You're only as big as your battles
Rattle my cage with your shadow
I'm a bantamweight with a mouth full of feathers
Don't you know that what comes around goes around?

[Chorus]
I'm not that easy
I am not your horse to water
I hold my breath, I come around, round, round

[Verse 3]
Don't darken my doorstep again
You're mixing up living in chin-chin
You're mixing up lose with win-win
You lead a horse to water and you watch him drown

[Verse 4]
You stumble on glass top table
TV's chewing shotgun cable
Pump me up a beanstalk fable
And I'll call this entertainment
Cause Humpty's falling down

[Chorus]
I'm not that easy
I am not your horse to water
I hold my breath, I come around, round, round

[Verse 5]
Pick a fight an ultra-buzzy bubble
Friday night fucking fried-up pub crawl
Bantamweight with a mouth full of feathers
Don't you know that what comes around goes around?

[Chorus]
I'm not that easy
I am not your horse to water
I hold my breath, I come around, round, round
It's not that easy
I am not your horse to water
I hold my breath, I come around, round, round

[Outro]
It's going down, down, down
This runaround, round, round
Is bound to pound
The daylights out of you!
