The Outsiders by R.E.M.

Intro: Em D Em



Em                 D                   Em                              
You took me to the restaurant where we first met   
Em            D            Em           
You knocked a future shock crowbar upside my head



Em                    D          G          Am         Em
I got caught with the stop of the tick-tock, tick-tock clock
                      
                D        Em                                               
When you told me what you knew                                            
    
Em          D                                                            
Lost in the moment                                 
       
    G           Am     Em                                                 
The day that the music stopped 
               
         D      Em
And I do remember you

C                                   D
Drawing patterns with a cork on the tablecloth     
G         D        Em               
Promising volcanic change of plot                                     
C                             D     
Where will this lead us - I'm scared of the storm                           
    Em            D            Em
The outsiders are gathering, a new day is born

(Chords are the same as 1st verse)
 
I tried to tell you I am not afraid                                     
You looked up and saw it all across my face            
So am I with you or am I against                             
I don't think it's that easy - we're lost in regret

Now I'm trying to remember
The feeling when the music stopped                   
When you told me what you knew              
Lost in the moment                                                          
The day that the music stopped 
And I do remember you

Drawing patterns with  cork on the tablecloth
                                 
Promising volcanic change of plot                     
Where does this leave us - I'm scared of the storm     
The outsiders are gathering, a new day is born

Drawing patterns with a cork on the tablecloth                      
Promising volcanic change of plot                       
Where does this leave us - I'm scared of the storm         
The outsiders are gathering, a new day is born

Em            D            Em
The outsiders are gathering, a new day is born 
    Em            D            Em
The outsiders are gathering

Chords for the rap: Em D G Am

RAP

A man walks away when every muscle says to stay 
How many yesterdays - they each weigh heavy 
Who says what changes may come? 
Who says what we call home? 
I know you see right through me, my luminescence fades 
The dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid 
I've been a million times in my mind 
This is really just a technicality, frailty, reality

Uh, it's time to breathe, time to believe 
Let it go and run towards the sea 
They don't teach that, they don't know what you mean 
They don't understand, they don't know what you mean 
They don't get it, I wanna scream 
I wanna breathe again, I wanna dream 
I wanna float a quote from Martin Luther King 
I am not afraid 
I am not afraid 
I am not afraid

I am not afraid 
I am not afraid 
I am not afraid 
I am not afraid

G
