"Toys In The Attic" as written by and Joe Perry Steven Tyler....
Light voices scream, nothing seems real's a dream
Leaving the things that you learned behind
Leaving the things that you love behind
All of the things that you learned were real
Nothing except for the years
Voices scream, nothing seems real's a dream

[Chorus]
Toys, toys, toys in the attic
Toys, toys, toys in the attic
Toys, toys, toys in the attic

Leaving the things that you love behind
Leaving the things that you learned behind
All of the things that you learned were real
Nothing except for the years
Voices scream, nothing seems real's a dream

[Chorus]

    General CommentTurns out that this is a cover of an Aerosmith song. It was on dead letter office. Not a bad album, but they should have left originals to their own bands. Ah well.

    General CommentI don't think REM spends much time watching Anime, though i could be wrong...

    When you're dreaming of attics, it's supposed to be where you keep all of your accomplisments. This song looks like the character* is learning to let go of subconcious aprehensions or suppositions.

    The first line in the stanza doesn't make sense to me.

    *Character is almost nonexistant in this song. There's no subject except the occasional "you," making this song fragment-y. The vauge, fragment-y-ness makes it very... weird.
