Country Feedback
R.E.M. Lyrics


One, two, three, four
Oh
This flower is scorched
This film is on
On a maddening loop
These clothes
These clothes don't fit us right
I'm to blame
It's all the same
It's all the same

You come to me with a bone in your hand
You come to me with your hair curled tight
You come to me with positions
You come to me with excuses
Ducked out in a row
You wear me out
You wear me out

We've been through fake-a-breakdown
Self hurt
Plastics, collections
Self help, self pain,
EST, psychics, fuck all
I was central
I had control
I lost my head
I need this
I need this
A paper weight, junk garage
Winter rain, a honey pot
Crazy, all the lovers have been tagged
A hotline, a wanted add
It's crazy what you could've had
It's crazy what you could've had
It's crazy what you could've had
I need this
I need this
It's crazy what you could've had
It's crazy what you could've had
I need this
I need this
It's crazy what you could've had
It's crazy what you could've had
I need this
I, I need this
It's crazy what you could've had
I need this, I need this
It's crazy what you could've had
Crazy what you could've had
I need this
I need this

Crazy what you could've had
Crazy what you could've had

30 years later, and this song haunts still.
I was in college in '91, and this was the song on Out of Time album that my friends would skip over. And I would go home, alone, quiet, confused, and listen to only this, on loop, for hours. Still haunts me.

I remember being in junior college in the 90’s and it was about 3am and out of blue the radio played a live version of Country Feedback. I felt just how you described and it was exquisite agony

Marc Eibel

They worked together as a whole thing, it was their unique sound, the intensity of their music, with Michael Stipe showing himself, powerful in his weakness, always pure, impressive, of cause not always comfortable, pulling doubts and fears into light via his brilliant lyrics..They feed your thinking. Brutally honest, much to honest to a lot of people, but This to me was/ is the true spirit of R.E.M.. The listener finds himself in the words, listen to R.E.M. is like a therapy...life's seems easier listening to them...

The musician M. Stipe always stayed in the tradition of a real singer/songwriter, never appeared as some kind of a pop star, which basic intention of making music's admiration and fame. I always thought of him and this band as true performers. They were like a forcefield against mainstream music. I always appreciated them for not pretending to be something they weren't. Miss this band...

Rodrigo Karagan

Love so much this comment. I'm not an English native speaker, but having listened and love R.E.M. since I was a kid such words really translate the way I feel about the band. Thank you for sharing this. A lot.
