R.E.M. Lyrics

Academy Fight Song
(Mission of Burma original w/ Stipe's variation below. R.E.M. performed this song often during the Green Tour, and (a studio version to their fan club on the 1989 Christmas 7" vinyl single)

Walk into my room
Ask me jerky questions
Don't mean what you say
Immaculate Conception

Play by the rules
So close to the chest, chest
Show that all's not lost
This is not a test.

Stay just as far from me as me from you.
Make sure that you are sure of everything I do.
'Cause I'm not, not, not, not, not, not, not, not
Your academy

The halls are like piss
The rooms are underlit
Still it must be nice
Such a perfect fit, fit

What's that I hear?
The sound of marching feet
It has a strange alure,
Has a strange alure

Stay just as far from me as me from you.
Make sure that you are sure of everything I do.
'Cause I'm not, not, not, not, not, not, not, not
Your academy

Your academy

Maybe you're right,
I shouldn't judge
What's wrong or right,
It's all too much

I'm not judging you,
I'm judging me.
My academy.
Your academy
My academy.
Your academy
