When You're Ready

You say you get so haunted by these memories Well of course there must be plenty That you'd just as soon forget Here's a chance to wash away your history We haven't tried this on civilians yet But you'll have to take that risk To get this chance at riches And how much could it be worth To keep those same bad dreams Just climb up on the table Let me throw the switches It's really a remarkable machine And the switch is by your head And when it's done You won't know how you got here But you could write yourself a letter Yes you'll still know how to read Just draw yourself a map to where you're living And put a label on each one of your keys When your friends will try to tease you You just won't remember What a fool you were in high school over some old flame Just climb up on the table, I can quench the ember The past will never bother you again And the switch is by your head when you're ready Truth be told, this big machine does nothing But there's a change that brings A difference into all these people's lives To free them from the past That was their prison What gives them passage Is just the fact that they decide You see this big machine is harmless It just scares them shitless It's louder than a spaceship And the lights are strange They climb up on the table and I throw the switches And it helps them to believe that they can change Ahh but the switch is by your head when you're ready When you're ready, when you're ready
