Shaking Through : LUSENET : R.E.M. : One Thread

I've heard that Shaking Through is about the atomic war/bomb. Is it true? Does anyone know anything about it?

michael stipe once met a few people who had tried to analyse the song shaking trough.they thought that it was about atomic war and wanted to know from michael if this was RIGHT.michael answered that it was RIGHT because these people were so completely sure that it was.he just couldn4t say it was wrong,because it really wasn4t.BUT it was NOT the REAL topic of the you see,everyone finds different meanings in ONE song.that4s what michael said in an interview.hope that helps
