His head was a city
Of paper buildings
In the echoes that remain

Of old friends and lovers
Their features bleeding
Together in his brain
Oh ho ho

Once it started it was harder to tell them apart
Oh ho ho

He was always distracted
By the very mention
Of an open door
Oh ho ho

Cause he had sworn
Not to be what he'd been before
To be a remain remain remain remainder
To be a remain remain remain remainder

Television
Snoring softly
As she hunted for her keys

She said she never envisioned
Being the type of person
Capable of such deceit
Oh ho ho
Oh ho ho

Then they carried on like
Long division
As it was clear with every page
Oh that they were further away
From a solution that would play
Without a remain remain remain remainder (x4)

He had sworn
Not be what he'd been before
To be a remain remain remain remainder (x6)
