Remember remember, tricks to remember
Remember remember, tricks to remember
Remember remember, tricks to remember
Remember remember, tricks to remember

M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C - remind me
M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C - remind me
M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C
M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C

Memory - a record in every sense (mind me)
There's no symmetry in brain machinery (mind you)
Sensory: short-term, long-term (must be)
The sum of me - my identity (re-route)

M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C - remind me
M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C - remind me
M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C
M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C

A gallery of faces and names (N.B.)
4 security - who's nice and who's nasty (guess who?)
Chemistry - telling me off by heart (easy)
Snapshot scenery - I load love-imagery (yes you)

It's a flashback peepshow
Retro, memo, one time ago
It's a scrapbook photo
Retro, memo, one time ago

It's a flashback peepshow
Retro, memo, one time ago
It's a scrapbook photo
Retro, memo, one time ago

M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C - remind me
M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C - remind me
M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C
M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C

    General Commentstrange thing to write a song about
    doesnt seem to be about anything really. just those little techniques people use to help them remember stuff.
    its a good tune though

    General CommentI've always thought this song was about how personal identity is formed from memories (i.e.'the sum of me - my identity') and only by using 'tricks to remember' can you make sure that your memory doesn't fail you and therefore rob you of your past and experiences etc.

    General Commenti really like about what they write. "normal" things, yet unusual, things that sometimes one thinks about a lot, like memories, memorizing, identity (well, some do :). they write so beautiful lyrics, the way to put it into words is kinda "poetic", in a way, not simple; flahing bits in it and jumping lines.

    i agree with sezzley, "the identity formed from memories", could be in it. (though personally i think there is more to identity than that, "incorporated society" e.g., to get technical... :)

    anyway, really cool!

    General CommentAt the end I think they say stuff like
    "... The first house I lived in the second was ... and i wonder why"
    "My sister... dragging it along the fence...playing drums and me thinking it was real... my boyfriends birthday"
    the ... are somethings i cant hear and there is much more after that
    can someone understand it
    get rid
