lyrics

The space between
the oven and the counter
The water rings
Beneath the potted flowers
Strands of hair
Echoes of our voices haunt the vents
Stale air
Circulation of our remnants

Try me try me
And I will prove
To be harder to remove
Than expected
This is definite
Try me try me
And I will prove
To be harder to remove
Than expected
This is definite

You only think you kept
The stains on your mattress
If I could collect
The phrases and masses
I couldn't carry with me
The traces that linger indefinitely
I'd let them decompose
Somewhere more peaceful

Try me try me
And I will prove
To be harder to remove
Than expected
This is definite
Try me try me
And I will prove
To be harder to remove
Than expected
This is definite

Inches thicken
Remembrance lessens
The only growth
is measured in regression
The only garden
A junkyard for parts unwanted
Heaped among the broken radiators
And utensils you never used
one day you'll make your
home here too

Try me try me
And I will prove
To be harder to remove
Than expected
This is definite
Try me try me
And I will prove
To be harder to remove
Than expected
This is definite
Try me
Try me
Try me try me
And I will prove
To be harder to remove
Than expected
This is definite
