An image from a long, long time ago
Is haunting me, it plays itself
With picture perfect clarity
A certain walk, a certain talk
Forever twenty-three
For only me to see

I watch it like a movie
The details so consume me
What's real will surface when it's gone
(And then it's gone)

By now you've heard the news
What is there left to do

I watch it like a movie
The details so consume me
What's real will surface when it's gone
(and then it's gone)

Your face looks so familiar
Unwashed and quite peculiar
No I can't say that I recall
I guess it's gone

    General CommentI always felt like the lyrics to this song had to do with Tobi's past relationship with Kurt Cobain and his subsequent death. I think that the "forever twenty three" line was the age at which he was when they dated. Maybe... maybe not.
