Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]

Ten times removed
I forget about where it all began
Bastard son of a bastard son of
A wild eyed child of the sun
And right as rain, I'm not the same but
I feel the same, I feel nothing


Holding back the fool again
Holding back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holding back the fool again

[Verse 2]

I sensed my loss
Before I even learned to talk
And I remember my birthdays
Empty party afternoons won't come back


[Verse 3]

I forget to forget me
I forget to forget you see
Nothing is important to me
I knew my loss
Before I even learned to speak
And all along, I knew it was wrong
But I played along, with my birthday song
