R.E.M. – Imitation of Life

9 Nov

My wife drove me to campus this morning, so I had the luxury to relax in the passenger seat. Well it’s less than 10 minutes drive though from our apartment to the campus. I however seized the opportunity to listen to R.E.M.’s song, Imitation of Life. I have been listening to that song again and again lately. The band considered that song the poppiest among their songs, which I could not agree more. But I like it a lot. That song is now like a theme song for me. The song is so effective in keeping my spirit for studying high. – P. Vermonte

Charades, pop skill.
Water hyacinth, named by a poet.
Imitation of life.
Like a koi in a frozen pond.
Like a goldfish in a bowl.
I don’t want to hear you cry.

Thats sugarcane that tasted good.
Thats cinnamon, thats Hollywood.
C’mon, c’mon no one can see you try.

You want the greatest thing.
The greatest thing since bread came sliced.
You’ve got it all, you’ve got it sized.
Like a Friday fashion show teenager.
Freezing in the corner.
Trying to look like you don’t try.

Thats sugarcane that tasted good.
Thats cinnamon, thats Hollywood.
C’mon, c’mon no one can see you try.

No one can see you cry.

That sugar cane that tasted good.
That freezing rain, that’s what you could.
C’mon, c’mon on no one can see you cry.

This sugarcane.
This lemonade.
This hurricane, I’m not afraid.
C’mon, c’mon no one can see you cry.

This lightning storm.
This tidal wave.
This avalanche, I’m not afraid.
C’mon, c’mon no one can see me cry.

That sugar cane that tasted good.
That’s who you are, that’s what you could.
C’mon, c’mon on no one can see you cry.

That sugar cane that tasted good.
That’s who you are, that’s what you could.
C’mon, c’mon on no one can see you cry.

PS: I actually had a love-hate thing for R.E.M. songs. Picking up this one as song-of-the-week is not actually what my normal self would do. But these day’s I’m not normally myself anyway😛 So, here’s to changing habbits!😉 Thanks, Mr. Vermonte, for reminding me of this song.

C’mon, c’mon, no one can see me cry.

    Oom Setiawan: Iya, waktu Ambu ngetik komen rasanya ada beberapa komen di atas Ambu, tapi waktu komen-nya publis, kok tiba-tiba komen Ambu jadi pas di bawahnya pak Ver ya? Jadi urutan 3, padahal rasanya udah ada beberapa yang ngantri..
