lyrics

Raised by his invisible father
Hanging over his mother
New England, Irish fire in his eyes
After a long while, he had realized
Happiness is a cure

Then the man came in
Tears pinned to his eyes
And he smiled all over me
The door closed behind him
He's always rewinding
He said he wants to be like me
What can we be?

He said he wanted to be like me, like him, like her, like us
When he had stopped his ascent to return to his mother
She couldn't look at him, all she saw was his father
He said that he didn't read the news anymore

Then the man came in
Tears pinned to his eyes
And he smiled all over me
The door closed behind him
He's always rewinding
He said he wants to be like me
What can we be?
I said it was inside him
That he had to keep moving towards light

But when he spoke of his home here
The tears began to stretch and stir
Elastic-banded elixir
Joyous, lone standing toothy grin
And when I peered at that grin
It slowly crept along my spine
This soul and I had walked through the paths of a bygone time

Then the man came in
Tears pinned to his eyes
And he smiled all over me
The door closed behind him
He's always rewinding
He said he wants to be like me
What can we be?
