she was no marine back from the Philippines
she was their pride and joy, their incarnation
her parents viewed the chief with shock and disbelief
looking for some other explanation

the indian on her back was poised for an attack
she said a tatoo is a badge of validation
but the truth of the matter is far more revealing
it's a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling

permanent reminder
of a temporary feeling
amnesiac episodes that never go away
it's no complex momemto it's not set of revealing
just a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling

Vegas in the rain
drunk on cheap champagne
he hears out of tune synthesized chapel bells painfully ringing
where's his limo ride
who's this foreign bride
is that really Elvis spinning around the ceiling

permanent reminder
of a temporary feeling
forgotten fabrications in the chapels of love
what's this ring on his finger
why is he kneeling
she's just a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling

Chromosomes and genes
spawn these fateful scenes
evolution can be mean
there's no dumbass vaccine
blame your DNA
you're a victim of your fate
it's human nature to miscalculate

to make up for the fight
they go out for the night
sex drugs and rock n roll seem like the easiest answer
but a short nine months later
there's no way of concealing
that permanent reminder of a temporary feeling

permanent reminder
of a temporary feeling
amnesiac episodes that never go away
complex momentos not subtle revealings
just a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling
permanent reminder of a temporary feeling
permanent reminder of a temporary feeling
