exhuming mccarthy lyrics – r.e.m.

“exhuming mccarthy”

you’re beautiful, more beautiful than me
you’re honorable, more honorable than me
loyal to the bank of america

(it’s a sign of the times)
(it’s a sign of the times)

you’re sharpening stones, walking on coals
to improve your business ac*men
sharpening stones, walking on coals
to improve your business ac*men

vested interest, united ties
landed gentry, rationalize
look who bought the myth
by jingo, buy america

(it’s a sign of the times)
(it’s a sign of the times)

you’re sharpening stones, walking on coals
to improve your business ac*men
sharpening stones, walking on coals
to improve your business ac*men

enemy sighted, enemy met
i’m addressing the real politic
look who bought the myth
by jingo, buy america

“let us not *ss*ssinate this man further, senator, you’ve done enough.
have you no sense of decency, sir? at long last, have you left no sense of decency?”

you’re sharpening stones, walking on coals
to improve your business ac*men
sharpening stones walking on coals
to improve your business ac*men

enemy sighted enemy met
i’m addressing the real politic
you’ve seen start and you’ve seen quit (i’m addressing the table of content)
i always thought of you as quick

exhuming mccarthy, exhuming mccarthy (meet me at the book burning)
exhuming mccarthy, exhuming mccarthy (meet me at the book burning)
