REM Houston

This fanmade music-video is set to 'Houston', a 2008 song by R.E.M. ... Inspired by the brooding melody and the fierce lyrics in this song (about the way American politics failed their citizens in the aftermath of recent hurricanes and floodings). Hope you'll enjoy.

"If the storm doesn't kill me the government will
I've got to get that out of my head
It's a new day today and the coffee is strong
I've finally get some rest

So a man's put to task and challenges
I was taught to hold my head high
Collect what is mine,
Make the best of what today has

Houston is filled with promise
Laredo is a beautiful place
Galveston sings like that song that I loved
Its meaning has not been erased

And so there are claims forgiven
And so there are things that are gone

Houston is filled with promise
Laredo is a beautiful place
Galveston sings like that song that I loved
Its meaning has not been erased

And some things, they fall to the wayside
Their memory is yet to be still
Belief has not filled me
And so I am put to the test"

Words/Music: Buck/Mills/Stipe 2008
Art Design: B. Proost 2008
