Diminished - Lyrics by REM


Lyrics

i watched you fall
i think i pushed
maybe i'm crazy
maybe diminished
maybe i'm innocent
maybe i'm finished
maybe i blacked out
how do i play this

i will give my best today
i will give myself away
i have never hurt anythig
is the jury wavering
do they know i sing

maybe i'm crazy
maybe diminished
how do i
how do i play this
jealous lover self defense
protective brother chemical
dependence
i'll consult the i ching
i'll consult the tv
ouija oblique strategies
i'll consult the law books for
precedents
can i charm the jury

i will give my best today
i will give myself away
i have never hurt anything
is the justice wavering
does she know i sing
that song
sing along
sing along
sing along
i will never hurt anything

i watched you fall
maybe they'll see me
maybe they'll say
i can see the truth in his statement
smallpox blanket no way
can i charm the jury my defense
maybe i'm crazy
maybe i'm diminished
maybe i loved you
baby i loved you
baby i loved you
baby i loved you
baby i'm finished

i will give my best today
i will give myself away
i have never hurt anything
is the justice wavering
does she know i sing
that song
sing along
sing along
sing along
i will never hurt anything
i have given myself away
i have given my best today
i have never hurt anything
is the justice wavering
does she know i loved you
does she know i loved you
does she know i sing
