Artist: R.E.M.
Albums: Accelerate (2008)

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

You're only as big as your battles
Rattle my cage with your shadow
I'm a phantom-weight with a mouth full of feathers
Don't you know that what comes around goes around

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

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

You stumble on glass top table
TV's chewing shock-gone cable
Pump me up a beanstalk fable
And I'll call this entertainment
'cause Humpty's falling down

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

Pick a fight an ultra-buzzy bubble
Friday night fuckin' fried-up pub crawl
Phantom-weight with a mouth full of feathers
Don't you know that what comes around goes around

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