His head was a city of paper buildings
In the echoes that remained of old friends and lovers
Their features bleeding together in his brain, ohh
But once it starts it's harder to tell them apart, ohh

He was always distracted
By the very mention of an open door, ohh
'Cause he had sworn
Not to be what he'd been before

To be a remain, remain, remain, remainder
To be a remain, remain, remain, remainder

The television was snowing softly
As she hunted for her key
She said, she'd never envisioned
Him a type of person capable of such deceit, ohh, ohh

And they carried on like long division
'Cause it was clear with every page
Oh, that they were farther away
From the solution that would play

Without a remain, remain, remain, remainder
Without a remain, remain, remain, remainder
Without a remain, remain, remain, remainder
Without a remain, remain, remain, remainder

He had sworn not to be what he'd been before

To be a remain, remain, remain, remainder
To be a remain, remain, remain, remainder
To be a remain, remain, remain, remainder
To be a remain, remain, remain, remainder

To be a remain, remain, remain, remainder
To be a remain, remain, remain, remainder
