Anonymous in the old world
While the rain blows pixel-slight
Music as archeology
Someone’s digging deep tonight
Well, I come undone in slow motion
And the crashing is so easy
I don’t notice it’s begun

I need something to remember me by
Carry something to remember me by

Skipped like a stone through the jet stream
To arrive still in my skin
Sucker-punched by my indifference
And it’s down the hole again
So I take my shots at all I’ve got
Turning lightning in a bottle
To a storm in a teapot

I need something to remember me by
Carry something to remember me by

I dreamed of the ocean
Covered by a curtain of blue
Heaven knows, I’m predisposed
To have that view
But it’s not what I want for me
And it’s not what I want for you
Always fighting that tendency
Covered by a curtain of blue

In the sober light of mourning
Cut the losses of those days
All of the times I missed the point
In all of the many ways
Struggle with my soul for some control
A crisis of self-confidence
Collecting too high a toll

I need something to remember me by
Carry something to remember me by
I need someone to remember me by
Carry someone to remember me by
Let it be you
