Vaccination Scar - Lyrics

Pin It Now!

Last played: 2005/07/16 Grand Falls, NF
Debut: 2004/06/23 Calgary, AB
Notes: 49 total plays and all but 1 came in its debut year. An incredibly weird song history for a tune that I believe was the first single released from In Between Evolution.

So the chemistry's set,
and I'm not the saddest cheerleader
to forget the American word
for the gang in the head
that dwindles 'til no members when
The mystery's met,
the sky looks threatened
heading home in the dust,
singing 'Life Is Forgettin'
good enough for the frivolous'

There's one thing I remember is
this tear on your bare shoulder this
little silver boulder
this slowly falling star
rolling, so what
never getting older
where the moon-shocked curtains part
The start of enough
a tear dropped in a vaccination scar

I'll tell ya if I'm able that is
I'll tell ya like it is
He went down like a bad card table, like
the Tacoma Narrows Bridge
like the Tacoma Narrows Bridge

Swimming on a bit
stop you're treading water as the sun assimilated the words
For lighthouse fire
burning down to embers' end
The mystery's met
the sky just reddened,
heading home under dusk
Is life just forgetting
another word for frivolous?
or little silver boulder
silence from Mars
For the heart of enough
or a teardrop in a Vaccination Scar?

Wherever you are, scar
