So the chemistry's set,
And I'm not the saddest cheerleader
To forget the american word
For the gang in the head
That dwindles 'til no members when
The mystery's met,
The sky looks threatened
Heading home in the dust,
Singing 'Life Is Forgettin',
Good enough for the frivolous
There's one thing I remember is
This tear on your bare shoulder
Thislittle silver boulder
This slowly falling star
We're rolling, so what?
Never getting olderwhere the moon-shocked curtains part.
The start of enough,
A tear dropped in a vaccination scar
I'll tell ya if I'm able, that is,
I'll tell ya like it is
He went down like a bad card table, like
The Tacoma Narrows Bridge
Like the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
Swimming on a bit,
"stop, you're treading water" as the sun assimilated the words.
For lighthouse fire
Burning down to embers' end
The mystery met
The sky just reddened,
Heading home under dusk
Is life just forgettin' another word for frivilous?
Little silver boulder
Silence from Mars
For the heart of enough
Or a teardrop in a Vaccination Scar?
Wherever you are, scar.
