Uberlin

Album: Collapse Into Now (2011)
  • Hey now, take your pills and
    Hey now, make your breakfast
    Hey now, comb your hair and off to work
    Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion
    My imagination runs away

    I know, I know, I know what I am chasing
    I know, I know, I know that this is changing me

    I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
    I am flying on a star, star, star
    I will make it through the day
    And then the day becomes the night
    I will make it through the night

    Hey now, take the U-Bahn, five stops, change the station
    Hey now, don't forget that change will save you
    Hey now, count a thousand-million people, that's astounding
    Chasing through the city with their stars on bright

    I know, I know, I know what I am chasing
    I know, I know, I know that this is changing me

    I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
    I am flying on a star, star, star
    I will make it through the day
    And then the day becomes the night
    I will make it through the night

    I don't mind repeating, I am not complete
    I have never been the gifted type
    Hey, man, tell me something, are you off to somewhere?
    Do you want to go with me tonight?

    I know, I know, I know that this is changing
    We walk the streets to feel the ground I'm chasing: ÜBerlin

    I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
    I am flying on a star, star, star
    I will make it through the day
    And then the day becomes the night
    I will make it through the night Writer/s: Michael Mills, Michael Stipe, Peter Buck
