Memory is a liquid thing That offers some small comforts I've held your face for so long So close to the surface But memory is a treacherous thing Takes all that is most precious Claims you to vagueness Claims you forgotten We were there that day Time stood still The adults were whispering We heard the words: "The fourth disease" You disappeared into your invalid's bed Never to come out to play again

I washed my hands of this town Streetlights died as I passed below A scorched path on my way out It seemed right somehow I took my home apart Put the pieces in the car Carried them away in the backseat of the car X-ed out of the photographs I rolled the windows down Threw them out on the road back there On the highway miles ago I keep them close to me The things you said to me The things you didn't really mean And I can't forget I washed my hands of this town And you told everyone you were afraid No more And when I think of your happiness I am broken. I washed my hands of this The streetlights died as I passed below X-ed out of the photographs It seemed right somehow I washed my hands of this I took my home apart X-ed out of the photographs I washed my hands of this.
