by

R.E.M.



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This song is about Brivs Mekis, a man who built a wall in his house. He would live on one side for a while, then switch to the other when he got bored. When he died, they found a huge pile of books in his closet that he wrote and had published. The book was titled Life And How To Live It. (thanks, Nick - Syracuse, NY)
