What If We Give It Away? (R.E.M.)

On the outside, underneath the wall All the money couldn't buy You're mistaken, no one's standing there For the record, no one tried Oh, I try to What if we give it away? Overlooking with a hollow eye What's pretending isn't right Eye for order, a hand for what's in line Couldn't follow, couldn't write Oh, I try to What if we give it away? And our life is fine here Stitch it on your tie here Here's the trailer, Tom A year has come and gone We're not moving, wasn't right Take the order, sew it on your tie We couldn't follow, couldn't try Oh, I try to What if we give it away? What if we give it away?
