Lyrics:( With Michael Stipe in the album "New Adventures In Hi-Fi" )

Look up, what do you
see?
All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they
surprise

The bus ride, I went to write this, 4:00 a.m.
This letter
Fields of
poppies, little pearls
All the boys and all the girls sweet-toothed
Each and every one a
little scary
I said your name

I wore it like a badge of teenage film stars
Hash
bars, cherry mash and tin-foil tiaras
Dreaming of Maria Callas
Whoever she is
This fame
thing, I don't get it
I wrap my hand in plastic to try to look through it
Maybelline eyes
and girl-as-boy moves
I can take you far
This star thing, I don't get it

I'll take
you over, there
I'll take you over, there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it
pulls us near

I'll take you over
It tastes like fear, there
I'll take you
over

Will you live to 83?
Will you ever welcome me?
Will you show me something that
nobody else has seen?
Smoke it, drink
Here comes the flood
Anything to thin the
blood
These corrosives do their magic slowly and sweet
Phone, eat it, drink
Just another
chink
Cuts and dents, they catch the light
Aluminum, the weakest link

I don't want
to disappoint you
I'm not here to anoint you
I would lick your feet
But is that sickest
move?
I wear my own crown and sadness and sorrow
And who'd have thought tomorrow could be so
strange?
My loss, and here we go again

I'll take you over, there
I'll take you
over, there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near

Look up, what
do you see?
All of you and all of me
Fluor
