I take some comfort in losing my memory
(O A O don't you let me down)
Then I get it back and I say, 'so this is what they mean'
(O A O don't you get around)
They don't say that don't make it hard

Everybody's making faces in the dark
But don't stop struggling that's what sets you apart
It's just the ghost of inhibition, that's what's breaking your heart
Everybody, everybody's making faces in the dark

I understand ambition, I was listening too
(they don't give up they don't give in)
But it's the middle of the summer and I've got nothin' to do
(somebody get out, somebody get in)
I only miss my own City Park


And if you let yourself see
You're making a mess of it all
and Esteban, your sister and me, we're alright
There is the perception of a regular thing
But I've been covering up all the things you won't let anyone see
If ever a minute goes by you won't see me
I got a double in the city that's buryin' me, tonite

So how is it that the memory's still so clear
(they don't get out wherever they go)
And if you can't sell it back, celebrate it while it's here
(they don't let out whatever they know)
They get seven attempts and they start
