  • It feels in dreams
    That everything is there for you
    The city breathes and pulses
    It's for you electron blue

    I knew that you could see right through it
    So this is where I give in to the machine
    Lift up your voice feel gravity's pull
    Drown out the siren's ring (or silent dream)


    It's all here where I keep it
    It's all in the submarine
    It's all a lot less frightening
    Than you would have had it be
    But that's the good news my darling
    It is what it's going to be
    So sing, sing for the submarine

    I tried to explain how it all begins
    How its all destroyed and built again
    I knew that you could not believe me
    But now you're here and it's different
    How the light shines in your eyes
    In every second or situ
    It's then that I realized
    That the world as we know it
    The High speed train
    We'll pick it all up and start again


    The city did not collapse in a shudder
    The rain it never came
    At least my confessions made you laugh
    I know it's a little crazed
    But these dreams,
    They seem so real to me


    So this is where you trust me
    And this where it begins
    It's all a lot less frightening
    Your tear you let it in
    Tyrel and his mechanical owl
    A moth disguised as a leaf

    Don't tell me what tomorrow brings
    Climb into the hidden machine and
    Sing sing sing sing sing sing
    Sing sing for the submarine Writer/s: PETER BUCK, MIKE MILLS, MICHAEL STIPE
