Scars and Stitches
by Guster



Can you remember
What the future held
A little candy ring
In a mystic ocean's shell

They were anesthetized
Slowly washed away
Left all the poison in
The sands in which I played

I don't mind falling down
And scraping up my knees
Scars and stitches always fade
And only strengthen me
With my eyes as wide as pearls
My only centerpiece
Is taken like the dead man's urn
And tossed into the sea

Write me a letter
And dot your I's and cross your T's
Nothing was everything to me

Under the monster's claws
And in between his teeth
Was the shadow and a silhouette
Of what I thought I'd be

I don't mind falling down
And scraping up my knees
Scars and stitches always fade
And only strengthen me
But with my eyes as wide as pearls
My only centerpiece
Is floating on the ocean's bed
And floats there endlessly
Well it's taken like the dead man's urn
And tossed into the sea
