We stepped up, we stepped down
The replacement is found
And the ______ falls around
And around and around

Hesitate and panic
When you look in his eye
The regret of your eyes
Of your eyes, of your eyes

Memories
(Step up)
Of better days
(One step in time)
Poor as dirt, but
Free as a bird

Memories
(Step down)
Of yesterday
(One step in time)
Pure as water
And innocent

Professor, assessor
Confessor, caresser
___________

You give up
And cannot comprehend all the things
________________

In your heart, in your head
On the tip of your tongue
Of your tongue, of your tongue

All you know
What you are
What you know
All you are
__________
__________

Give in
Give in
Give in
Give in

Your life
Your life
Your life

Money
Money
Money
Money

Money
Money
Money

    General CommentI transcribed this by ear, and obviously couldn't make out all of it. SM Cursive fans, band together! I'm sure if we put our ears together we'll be able to transcribe this whole song, and be the only place on the internet that I know of to have done so.

    General CommentI think the blank right before "panic" is "hesitate" and that he just puts an unusual inflection on it. Can't for the life of me figure out the first blank though.
