R.E.M.’s Last Straw

R.E.M., my favorite band, has a stream of a war-track The Last Straw on their site.

If hatred makes a play on me tomorrow
And forgiveness takes a back seat to revenge
There's a hurt down deep that has not been corrected
There's a voice in me that says you will not win.

Reminded via Betalogue - I'd forgotten about this one for awhile. And to Pierre, it's a stream because it's the rough take, as I understand it. A more polished version will be available soon (methinks).

P.S. I don't necessarily agree with R.E.M., but I don't necessarily disagree either. I will say that they've always been fairly political, but that's just pointing out what's obvious to many.
