REM - Green Grow the Rushes Lyrics



The wheelbarrow's fallen

Look at my hands

They've found some surplus cheaper hands

Rubbing palms and pick and choose,

who will they choose? Here is the news.



Look at that building, look at this man

Haloed and whitewashed

Gone to find a cheaper hand

he'll offer a pound, offer a pound.



Green grow the rushes go

Green grow the rushes go

Green grow the rushes go

The compass points the workers home



Pay for your freedom, find another gate

Guilt by associate, the rushes wilted a long time ago

Guilty as you go



Stay off that highway, word is it's not so safe

The grasses that hide the greenback

The amber waves of gain again

The amber waves of gain



Green grow the rushes go

Green grow the rushes go

Green grow the rushes go

The compass points the workers home
