Lyrics

play I've watched the stars fall silent from your eyes
play All the sights that I have seen
play I can't believe that I believed I wished
play That you could see
play There's a new planet in the solar system
play There is nothing up my sleeve

play I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
play I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
play Over my shoulder a piano falls
play Crashing to the ground

play In all this talk of time
play Talk is fine
play But I don't want to stay around
play Why can't we pantomime, just close our eyes
play And sleep sweet dreams
play Me and you with wings on our feet

play I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
play I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
play Over my shoulder a piano falls
play Crashing to the ground

play I'm breaking through
play I'm bending spoons
play I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
play I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

play I want the hummingbirds, the dancing bears
play Sweetest dreams of you
play I look into the stars
play I look into the moon

play I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
play I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
play Over my shoulder a piano falls
play Crashing to the ground

play I'm breaking through
play I'm bending spoons
play I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
play I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

play I'm breaking through
play I'm bending spoons
play I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
play I'm looking for answers from the great
play Answers from the great, answers

play I'm breaking through
play I'm bending spoons
play I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
play I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

play I'm breaking through
play I'm bending spoons
play I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
play I'm looking for answers from the great
play Answers from the great, answers

This was used in the 1999 movie Man On The Moon. The movie is about Andy Kaufman, a very strange actor/comedian who generated lots of media attention with his outrageous stunts.

Lead singer Michael Stipe said this song is "About attempting the impossible, which I think is what Andy Kaufman did with his entire career."
