You and I will be together When we shed our memory I won't wear an orange sweater When I get it off of me When it's as it someday is It always will have been the case When your ever-searching finger Finds the button marked erase

Finger find the button marked erase Like a deep sea diver Falling into a mermaid's embrace Put one box on the sidewalk Then you return with the next And the first one's gone Everyone gets on the bus out of town And the lights start going out one by one

Button marked erase When darlings must be murdered When your heartbreak overwhelms your heart

Think of this as solving problems That should never have occurred Please don't call it strangulation, That is such an ugly word

Press erase, ignore the shrill alarms See the way the deep sea diver Falls into the mermaid's arms Put one box on the sidewalk Then you return with the next And the first one's gone Everyone gets on the bus out of town And the lights start going out one by one

Button marked erase When darlings must be murdered When your heartbreak overrides the very Thing you can not face The skeletons that won't stay down The mercy kill that can't be drowned

Put Box Sidewalk Then Return Next First one gone

Everyone On Bus Out Lights Out One by one

Finger find the button marked erase Like a deep sea diver Falling into a mermaid's embrace Put one box on the sidewalk Then you return with the next And the first one's gone Everyone gets on the bus out of town And the lights start going out one by one
