"In Memoriam" as written by and Carrick Moore Gerety....
took a sip from a bottle of orange soda
suddenly you were back
on my bike years ago
while sharing the camera
you passed by, so quickly

I remember you
so remember me
as I was back then
in my ripped blue jeans
moments ago
It seems to me
that we were just kids
in a memory

I still see the blue, sunken barge
down by the shore and I
can taste the blackberry juice on our fingers
but there’s an echo of careless, callow footsteps
that run by so quickly

I remember you
so remember me
as I was back then
in my ripped blue jeans
moments ago
It seems to me
that we were just kids in a memory
in a memory

It feels good to forget how wonderful it was
in the noise of a crowd
but sometimes cars in the night
sound like the ocean and
then I swear
I'm back there
seems so real
it disappears

I remember you
so remember me
as I was back then
in my ripped blue jeans
moments ago
It seems to me that we were just kids in a memory
moments ago
It seems to me
that we were just kids
in a memory
moments ago
It seems to me
that we were just kids in a memory
in a memory
in a memory

    General CommentI think it's about remembering his childhood with a special person and they made a difference in his life and vice versa, so he's saying please remember me. but this song is so..poetic i love it!

    General CommentThis song is obviously about an acid trip spent with someone very close to him. Come on, the ORANGE soda, on his BIKE. the sunken barge, forgetting how wonderful it was in the noise of a crowd. All basic inuendos for an acid trip. and this theory has more backing because he's talking about how they were just kids in a memory...

    if you've ever touched the stuff in your life, you know what i'm talking about.

    General CommentI love this song..i mean if anyone has ever wished to just go back to a certain time, you can feel that one time you want back the most is in this song
    if that even makes sense

    But im most definetly sure the forth line goes..

    General Commentnostalgic song about either a old flame or friend

    not sure if the person was just distanced from the narrator or it's about death
