The River Runs Red

dust in my hands


Image
Concert in front of Exxon building on Manhattan's 6th avenue to protest the Exxon-Valdez catastrophe. The concert was not authorized




So you cut all the tall trees down
You poisoned the sky and the sea
Image
You've taken what's good from the ground
But you left precious little for me

You remember the flood and the fall
We remember the light on the hill
There should be enough for us all
But the dollar is driving us still

River runs red
Image
Black rain falls
Dust in my hand
Image
River runs red
Black rain falls
On my bleeding land
Image
So we came and conquered and found
Riches of commons and kings
Who strangled and wrestled the ground
Image
But they never put back anything

Now I'm trapped like a dog in a cage
Image
Wherever the truth is pursued
It must be the curse of the age
What's taken is never renewed

River runs red...

Image
red rain is coming down

Image
red rain
red rain is pouring down
Image
pouring down all over me
Image
I am standing up at the water's edge in my dream
I cannot make a single sound as you scream
it can't be that cold, the ground is still warm to touch
this place is so quiet, sensing that storm
Image
red rain is coming down
red rain
Image
Image
red rain is pouring down
pouring down all over me
Image
well I've seen them buried in a sheltered place in this town
they tell you that this rain can sting, and look down
there is no blood around see no sign of pain
Image
hay ay ay no pain
seeing no red at all, see no rain
Image

red rain is coming down
red rain
Image
red rain is pouring down
pouring down all over me
Image
red rain-
putting the pressure on much harder now
to return again and again
just let the red rain splash you
let the rain fall on your skin
I come to you defences down
with the trust of a child

red rain is coming down
red rain
red rain is pouring down
pouring down all over me
and I can't watch any more
no more denial
Image
it's so hard to lay down in all of this
red rain is coming down
red rain is pouring down
red rain is coming down all over me
I see it
red rain is coming down
red rain is pouring down
red rain is coming down all over me
I'm bathing in it
red rain coming down
red rain is coming down
red rain is coming down all over me
I'm begging you
Image
red rain coming down
red rain coming down
red rain coming down
red rain coming down

over me in the red red sea
Image

over me
over me
red rain

find the cost of your freedom


Hear the past a' calling
From Armageddon's side
When everyone's talking and no one
Is listening
How can we decide














lipstick for your face
Image

And in the long run he will kill you
Image

I can see your body lie
Image

to put the shadow on our eye
Maybe we'll go
Maybe we'll disappear
It's not that we don't know
It's just that we don't want to care.


Image



Over the years you have been hunted
Image
by the men who threw harpoons
And in the long run he will kill you
just to feed the pets we raise,
put the flowers in your vase
and make the lipstick for your face.
Over the years you swam the ocean
Following feelings of your own
Now you are washed up on the shoreline
I can see your body lie
It's a shame you have to die
Image
to put the shadow on our eye
Maybe we'll go
Maybe we'll disappear
It's not that we don't know
It's just that we don't want to care.
Under the bridges
Over the foam
Wind on the water
Carry me home.

a hard day on the planet




Image

The dollar went down and the President said
“Who’s in charge, now?” I don’t know, take your pick.
A new disease every day and the old ones are coming back
Things are looking kind of gray, like they’re going to black
Image
Don’t turn on the TV, don’t show me the paper
(I) don’t want to know he got kidnapped or why they all raped her
I want to go on vacation ‘till the pressure lets up
But they keep hijacking airplanes and blowing them up
Image
It’s been a hard day on the planet
How much is it all worth?
It’s getting harder to understand it
Things are tough all over on earth.

It’s hot in December and cold in July
When it rains it pours out of a poisonous sky
In California the body counts keep getting higher
It’s evil out there, man that state is always on fire.
Image
Everyone has a system, but they can’t seem to win
Even Bob Geldorf looks alarmingly thin
I got to get on that shuttle get me out of this place
But there’s gonna be warfare up there in outer space
Image
I’ve got clothes on my back and shoes on my feet
A roof over my head and something to eat
My kids are all healthy and my folks are alive
You know, it’s amazing but sometimes I think I’ll survive

I’ve got all of my fingers and all of my toes
I’m pretty well off I guess, I suppose
So how come I feel bad so much of the time?
A man ain’t an island—John Dunn wasn’t lying
Image
It’s business as usual; some things never change
It’s unfair, it’s tough, unkind and it’s strange
We don’t seem to learn; we can’t seem to stop
Maybe some explosions would close up the shop
Image
You know, maybe that would be fine: we would be off the hook
We resolved all our problems, never mind what it took
And it all would be over, finito, the end
Until the survivers started up all over again


Image
god damn the pusher man

god damn god damn



The dealer for a nickel
Goin to sell you lots of sweet dreams.
Ah...but the pusher will ruin your body;
Lord he'll leave your mind to scream.
God Damn! The pusher.
God Damn! God damn the pusher.
I said God Damn! God damn the pusher man.
Well now if I were the president of this land
You know I'd declare total war on the pusher man.
I'd cut him if he stands, and I'd shoot him if he run,
And I'd kill him with my bible, and my razor and my gun....
GOD DAMN! The pusher
God damn the pusher.

You're tellin' lies, so don't you criticize
Yeah I got used, all messed up and abused
Image
You let me down, with all your runnin' round
Still you pretend and try to call me friend
Image
don't say a word, I know just what I heard
Yeah you've been loose, you just go no excuse
Image
Just feel my rage, why can't you come of age?

I felt it all, just like a cannonball
Image

Then you got mad, you said that I'm all bad
Image
So what's the use, you lied and that's the truth
You took the key and drove right out on me
Image
I never knew, put all my trust in you
Image
OK that's it, I'm leaving now, I quit
I was unwise, so don't apologize
I paid the price, for taking your advice
Image
I felt it all, just like a cannonball
Image
You can say what you want all day
But I've never been so outraged
I'm washing my hands of you
Image
How could you be so untrue
Image
You know I can't stand no more
You know I can't stand no more


Now they're planning the crime of the century
Image
Image
Well what will it be?
Image
Read all about their schemes and adventuring
Image
It's well worth a fee

So roll up and see
Image
And they rape the universe
Image
How they've gone from bad to worse
Image
Who are these men of lust, greed, and glory?
Image
Rip off the masks and let's see.
Image
But that's no right - oh no, what's the story?
Image
There's you and there's me
Image
That can't be right

The Cuyahoga River must've been mentioned. It's been catching fire since 1868. That's a river we're talking about. A river regularly catching fire.

Another R.E.M. song, from when they were really good:



A section from a docu:



The largest river fire in 1952 caused over $1 million in damage to boats and a riverfront office building.[13] Fires erupted on the river several more times before June 22, 1969, when a river fire captured the attention of Time magazine, which described the Cuyahoga as the river that "oozes rather than flows" and in which a person "does not drown but decays."[14]

The 1969 Cuyahoga River fire helped spur an avalanche of water pollution control activities resulting in the Clean Water Act, Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, and the creation of the federal Environmental Protection Agency and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA). As a result, large point sources of pollution on the Cuyahoga have received significant attention from the OEPA in recent decades.

These events are referred to in Randy Newman's 1972 song "Burn On", R.E.M.'s 1986 song "Cuyahoga", and Adam Again's 1992 song "River on Fire". Great Lakes Brewing Company of Cleveland, Ohio name their Burning River Pale Ale after the event.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuyahoga_R ... l_concerns


Happy ending? Mmmph.

A warning sign,
Image
I missed the good part then I realized,
I started looking and the bubble burst.
Image

I started looking for excuses.

Come on in,
Image
I've gotta tell you what a state I'm in,
I've gotta tell you in my loudest tones,
That I started looking for a warning sign.

When the truth is,
I miss you.
Image
Yeah the truth is,
That I miss you so.
Image
A warning sign,
You came back to haunt me and I realized
you were an island and I passed you by,
You were an island to discover.
Image
Come on in,
I've gotta tell you what state I'm in,
I've gotta tell you in my loudest tones,
That I started looking for a warning sign.

When the truth is,
I miss you.
Image
Yeah the truth is,
That I miss you so.
Image
And I'm tired,
I should not have let you go.

So I crawl back into your open arms.
Yes, I crawl back into your open arms.
And I crawl back into your open arms.
Yes, I crawl back into your open arms...
