Lyrics
So the chemistry set,
And I'm not the saddest cheerleader
To forget the American word.
For the gang in the head
That dwindles 'til no members won.
The mysteries met,
The sky looks threatened
Heading home in the dust,
Singing "Life is Forgetting",
Good enough for the frivolous

There's one thing I remember is
This tear on your bare shoulder,
This little silver boulder,
This slowly falling star.
We're rolling, so what?
Never getting older where the moonshocked curtains part.
The start of enough
A teardrop, then a Vaccination scar.

I'll tell ya if I'm involved, that is,
I'll tell ya like it is.
Random like a bad cartoon, like
The Tacoma Narrows Bridge,
Like the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.

Swimming on a bit,
'Stop, you're treading water' as the sun assimilated the words.
For lighthouse fire
Burning down to embers end.
The mysteries met
Sky just reddened
Headin' home under dusk.
Is life just forgettin' another word for frivolous?
Little silver boulder, silence from Mars.
For the heart of enough
Or a teardrop, then a Vaccination Scar.

Wherever you are,
Scar
