The Story Goes . . .

Am I just an echo Do I know I must go Am I a presence at all? When my ghost calls Will you answer Or let me echo through the halls? oh oh . . . Do you want to Fill those spaces Will you come close Or will you stay in the clear? My Darling Departed I fell for a ghost Who tends to disappear Oh oh - if I am just a ghost Do not come when I call And when one door Up and closes Another opens Or was that just the wind? And hiding Under the covers Two distant lovers They are making pretend. Darling departed, I fell for a ghost.

King of Scum 03:24
Give me that eternal sunshine Give me that spotless mind Give me anything to forget your name Like I know you've forgotten mine Baby, I was your puppet String around my neck Dressed me up For the King of Scum And I danced for him in his bed Baby I could take you down Drag you out in the rain Throw you to the ground Kick you around But you still wouldn't feel my pain I choked on the smoke I was burned by the fire Coulda kept my distance Shoulda resisted (Oh yeah) And I woulda been wiser I understand what's going on I understand what you've done Oh no, but it doesn't make it easier Now I will sit and drink your whiskey Each shot is sure to do me well Darlin' I don't care if you miss me Or at least that's what I tell myself I understand what's going on I understand what you've done Oh no but it doesn't make it easier

Still 03:09
With the curtains slightly drawn Sit back and watch the world go on Fold your hands behind your head and yawn Inside, you're takin' notes With something to hide but nothing to show Vicarious like a window That's fine but I can't sit still I always wish that I had a little more will Hard to breathe in this old town Yellow fog risin' up from the ground So maybe I'll pass by this time around There's a whole bigger world outside Now I see it through indifferent eyes And I coulda missed this all if I had lied That's okay, it's not your fault Leave it up to me and I will stall That's fine but I can't sit still It's okay if you've had your fill Of me Yellow fog rising up from the ground So will you stay inside and watch someone else's life go by? What will you find when you open up your eyes? That's okay, it's not your fault Leave it up to me and I will stall That's fine but I can't sit still I always wish that I had a little more will That's fine but I can't sit still It's okay if you've had your fill Of me
