How the West Was Won and Where It Got Us - R.E.M.

Blood from a stone, water from wine

 

Born under an ill-placed sign

 

A stroke of bad luck, wrong place, wrong time

 

This flyer is out of the line

 

The story is a sad one, told many times

 

The story of my life in trying times

Just add water, stir in lime

 

How the west was won and where it got us

 

Canary got trapped in the uranium mine

 

I struck bad luck, now the bird has died

 

A marker to mark where my tears run dry

 

At the crossing of blessed and alkaline

 

The story is a sad one, told many times

 

The story of my life in trying times

 

Just add water, stir in lime

 

How the west was won and where it got us

 

I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain

 

Now I can't see anything

 

I made a mistake, chalked it up to design

 

I cracked through time, space, godless and dry

 

I point my nose to the northern star

 

And watch the decline from a hazy distance

The story is a sad one, told many times

 

The story of my life in trying times

 

Just add water, stir in lime

 

How the west was won and where it got us
