Why is it always, when I open my mouth
When we dance together your rhythm and tempo
You cry, I, I, can't take anymore
Oh you might think we're free
We're joined by a purpose that will not release us
Some love and acceptance, not hate and repentance
You cry, I, I, can't take anymore
But you can't find the bloody door
'Til we slip back into memory
I'm stuck, can't you let go
This time we will be friends
All my tracks have been laid
It's just, it's just a memory
Here's to memory
