His head was a city
of paper buildings
and the echoes that remained
of old friends and lovers
their features bleeding
together in his brain, oh ho ho

And once it starts
it was harder to tell them apart, oh ho ho

He was always distracted
by the very mention
of an open door, oh ho ho

cuz 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 keys
She said never envisioned
him the type of person
capable off such deceit, oh ho ho

oh ho ho

And then they carried on like long division
as it was clear with every page oh that they were

further away
from a 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 the remain remain remain remainder
to be the remain remain remain remainder
to be the remain remain remain remainder
to be the remain remain remain remainder

to be the remain remain remain remainder
to be the remain remain remain remainder
