Lyrics

Obliterate

Memories like weeds are choking my eyes
youíd think I was eighty years the way they leave me blind
if I donít find a way to get away for a couple of hours
they may end up strangling these few, ragged flowers
temptation is the only thing that seems
to take these ghosts out of my dreams
but if I succumb I wind up worse than before
I need a clean slate, I need a tape I can erase
I need something to obliterate my thoughts and dreams
I wish I was dumb sometimes, but Iím not
so Iíll have to get numb

Iíve painted my history in blood and now Iíll no longer cry
sometimes I wish I had a switch to turn off my mindís eye
you come along in Technicolor with my salvation in your hand
I lay my head on your breast, too tired to make a stand
I need a clean slate, I need a tape I can erase
I need something to obliterate my thoughts and dreams
I wish I was dumb sometimes, but Iím not
so Iíll have to get numb

beautiful nurse please do something to ease my pain
I donít care about tomorrow morning, itís still far far away
take off your white hat and let down your hair
like Rapunzel,let me climb you because I canít find the stair
we can sigh together Ďtill the morning comes

How many times can you watch one scene
rewind and rewind and rewind again
turn the channel, I need to laugh untill Iím sore

I need a clean slate, I need to obliterate
My incriminating history
I need some mystery instead of misery
Something to make me forget
Make me forget, make me forget
