Now I know just what to do
Feign amnesia
How I wish it wasn't true
Wish it wasn't true right now

Not much quiet about reinvention
Why have settled for stuff that is half-new?
Like a volume beyond comprehension
If the bass won't get you,
The treble will get you

I'll look busy just for you
And feign amnesia
How I wish it wasn't true
Wish it wasn't true right now
Wish it wasn't true right now

Hers are the brains
Floating on an upstream train
Hers are the brains
Barbarians and seeds are lost in the remains

We were standing outside a sidewalk
With that crazy guy dancing behind us
With our forced smiles and all of the laughter
They must (?) to hear that right

Now I know just what to do
Feign amnesia
How I wish it wasn't true
Wish it wasn't true right now

I'll look busy just for you
And feign amnesia
How I wish it wasn't true
Wish it wasn't true right now
Wish it wasn't true right now
Wish it wasn't true right now
Wish it wasn't true right now

    General CommentI have no idea what this song is about, other than perhaps avoidance by pretending you have amnesia. However, in the second verse, the line about "that crazy guy dancing behind us" reminded me of the song "Where your eyes don't go". A sampling of the lyrics:

    "Where your eyes don't go a filthy scarecrow waves its broomstick arms
    And does a parody of each unconscious thing you do
    When you turn around to look it's gone behind you
    On its face it's wearing your confused expression
    Where your eyes don't go"

    Could there be a connection?

    General CommentI think this song is about forgiveness. In my mind it's about a guy who's girlfriend or whatever cheated on him or betrayed him in some way. Instead of getting angry or breaking up with her, he feigns amnesia, or pretends he doesn't know what she did. It tears him up inside, and he wishes it didn't happen, but he pretends it actually didn't happen for the sake of the relationship.
