please don’t forget me
even though I didn’t die
no, don’t forget me,
even though to you I’m dead
no, don’t forget me
never mind, just don’t lie
don’t ever promise, envision, anything.

in my eyes i said you’d always be
underneath your hand would be me
but to see you faults baby, its not me
no, its not me.

please don’t forget me
even though you close your eyes
no, don’t forget me
even though my dreams are lies
no, don’t forget me
never mind, just don’t lie
no, don’t ever promise, envision, or anything

sincerely fucking nothing- stuck under glass
is it too late
stuck under glass in a waiting room
i see their faces hopeful, crystal clear

didn’t you say:
"values are what they lack"

your screaming kills,
my ears and brings back tears of dissipated pain.
its never coming back, never coming back again
is it too late?

stuck under glass in a waiting room
i see their faces hopeful, crystal clear

please, please forget me, even though I’m still alive (forget me)
tonight you'll come back to this room;
please forget me, because i cant forget you
please forget me, even though I’m still alive (forget me)
tonight you'll come back to this room;

please forget me, because i cant forget you

    General Commentgreat song; very 'revolution summer' dc influenced. definitely an 'early' song. you can tell they wrote this one under the influence of stuff like embrace, rites of spring, maybe even reptile house (pre-lungfish) etc.

    General Comment"underneath your hand would be me" is actually
    "And in your head would be me"
    But this song is incredible. I love it.

    General Commentto me this song is about being true to your self and your emotions.personally,the word determination rings out../self-preservation......and instead of faults baby....it was: your seeing false vision.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about indigenous peoples and their temporal dislocation. To most Americans, they're dead, a thhing of history, yet they walk among us, striving to hang on to culture in a 21st century that is still trying to undo the Indian despite cheap one-way multiculturalism. Thus, the idea of being stuck in a hospital, dying under glass that brings to mind the observation of mere artifacts. It also captures the conflicted emotions about whether people want validation of their existence, or whether the BIA and other people ever will.. or can, give a damn.
