Memory saved me, I'm fucking up,
constantly laid on the ground.
Looking for the signs on the ceiling…
She wants me to know
she wants me around.

I think I was moving to something,
I thought I was sailing along.
I had to be sailing for someplace…
I thought I was right,
but I must’ve been wrong.

But you make a beautiful blinder,
you hide things I don’t wanna see.
Your arms cover me like a blanket.
But maybe it’s all that I need.

Memory saved me a trip,
picking up phones from the ground.
Throw me a chain and I’ll climb it.
I thought I was up, but I guess I was down.

It looked like a dream, I was dreaming.
A dream of a boy by the sea.
You must have eyes just like mirrors,
'cause I thought I was looking at me.

Close your eyes,
think of the next thing to say.
I am pathetically lost.
Maybe you made me this way?

Memory saved me, I’m fuckin’ up!
The sun’s just a spot on the sea!
Lord is reaching for something!
Thought it was you, but I guess it was me!

The world is a wonderful target,
she was a wonderful world.
But God is a girl who won’t listen -
She was an insolent girl!

Close your eyes!
SEE WHAT YOU’RE DOING TO ME!
She catches my eyes with a cynical smile
and says “I cannot solve all I see.”

I had a dream,
dreams would fill my head.
but I let ‘em all slide, American style,
for the blanket that lays on my bed.

I wanted to find
an innocent mind,
but only found myself waiting.

I laid on the floor,
you walk through the door,
and now I feel myself fading.

I wanted to find
an innocent mind,
but only find myself waiting.

I laid on the floor,
you walk through the door.
And now I feel myself fading.

And now I feel myself fading.

I jumped underneath the wave,
it carried me right to the shoreline.
I laugh at my face in the sand,
I swam out again for the joyride.

I told you the things that I want,
you gave me just what I needed.
It’s just what my father would want,
but I couldn’t smile when he did.

I boarded the windows and doors,
took the clock down from the ceiling.
But I kept my head to the floor,
'cuz I had a confident feeling.

Somebody called me today,
I answered the door kinda hazy.
He told me to leave all my clothes,
he told me to tell you you’re crazy.

I followed him out to the street,
he pointed and quickly departed.
Left me to travel for weeks,
'til I get to the place where I started.

I just wanna be where I started,
I just wanna get back where I started.
I just wanna be where I started,
I just wanna get back where I started.
