• Disturbance At The Heron House

    Music & lyrics by R.E.M.

    They're going wild, the call came in
    At early morning predawn then
    The followers of chaos, out of control

    They're numbering the monkeys
    The monkeys and the monkeys
    The followers of chaos, out of control

    The call came in to party central
    A meeting of the green and simple
    Trying to tell us something we don't know

    They're meeting at the monument
    The call came in, the monument
    To liberty and honor under the honor roll

    They've gathered up the cages
    The cages and courageous
    The followers of chaos, out of control

    The call came in to party central
    A meeting of the green and simple
    Trying to tell us something we don't know

    Disturbance at the Heron House
    A stampede at the monument
    To liberty and honor under the honor roll

    Just a gathering of the grunts and greens
    The cogs and grunts and hirelings
    A meeting of a mean idea to hold

    When feeding time has come and gone
    They'll lose their heart and head for home
    Try to tell us something we don't know
    We don't know
