You can never leave, you can never leave.


Look away - there’s nothing here
Years ago I disappeared
I was young - I was such a clown
Juggling knives in Memory town

I left my body in the past
I knew that thing would never last
This bag of bones I’m carting ‘round
Was scarred and stitched in memory town

You know this face? Well think again
I could be any of your men
When flesh was measured by the pound
I left my heart in memory town

I’ve burnt down every building that’s inside of me
Now I’m free - I’m so free
Still a shadow falls where they used to be
It’s just a trick of memory
… memory

Was I there? Oh, I forget
How it ended - the whole shipwreck
I passed out - then came around
All washed up in Memory Town

Don’t write that book or you’ll get sued
The queen herself is not amused
All my ex-es can’t put it down
Dog eared pages in memory town

I dragged myself - pillar to post - in every face
Not a trace, not a trace
Try forgetting wrong turns you’ll end up just like me
You can never leave, you can never leave
… memory
