  • We live and dream about the future
    Please ask me out, I need to pow-wow now
    So through the annals of our flavored times
    Our heroes and all their fader thoughts

    Me, Marlon Brando, Marlon Brando and I, sing
    Lay me down, down, down, down
    Lay me down, down, down, down, down

    Help me off to sleep
    But take me deep again

    We live and dream about our heroes
    I listened closely and I said
    "I'm not sure where to place myself here, friend.
    Am I upon the gold rings and stand?"

    The winners write the rulebooks, the histories and lullabies

    Lay me down, down, down, down
    Lay me down, down, down, down, down

    Help me off to sleep
    (Down, down, down)
    Take me deep again
    (Down, down, down)
    I have watched you sing
    (Down, down, down)
    I picture glass wings in your head
    (Take me down, down, down)
    While golden broads and combines
    (Down, down, down)
    Or brasses mixed with lead Writer/s: MICHAEL E. MILLS, MICHAEL J. STIPE, MICHAEL MILLS, MICHAEL STIPE, PETER BUCK, PETER LAWRENCE BUCK
