Sitting Still

This song is by R.E.M. and appears on the album Murmur (1983).

This name I got we all agreed
She could stop, stop it well rid
We could bind it in the sist-
We could gather, throw a fit

Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs but not me in
Set a trap for the big kill
Don't waste your time sitting still

I'm the sun and you can read
I'm the sign and you're not deaf
We could bind it in the sist-
We could gather, throw a fit

Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs but not me in
Set a trap for the big kill
Don't waste your time sitting still
I can hear you
I can hear you
I can hear you

This name I got we all agree
She could stop, stop it well rid
We could bind it in the sist-
We could gather, throw a fit

Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs but not me in
Set a trap for the big kill
Don't waste your time sitting still
I can hear you
I can hear you
I can hear you

You can gather when I talk, talk until you're blue
You could get away from me, get away from me

I'm up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs but not me in
Set a trap for the big kill
Don't waste your time sitting still
I can hear you
I can hear you
I can hear you

I can hear you
I can hear you
I can hear you
Can you hear me

(In early live recordings, Stipe sings a longer version of the "we can bind it in the sist-" line, which sounds something like "We could bind it in the sister's way of children's hope", though the last word is completely mumbled and it's anybody's guess what the actual lyric is.)
