lyrics

Nothing ever disappears completely
Bruises fade but X-rays find
The places where the fractures were
And somewhere in your captain’s log
You keep a faithful catalogue
Of every single hurt

And what on earth to do with all the faces
And moments that accumulate
Like dust or snow or anything that falls
So very quietly and slowly
If the people in your memory
Could keep each other company
Would that make you less lonely

The laws of conservation say
The more things change
The more they stay the same
The more they change
It makes no difference come what may
You know that what you throw away
Is what you can’t escape

Nothing ever disappears completely
Take a hatchet bury it
And something will come up again
But whether it’s a weapon
Or a ploughshare
Or an instrument of beauty
Or a tree that fells itself
There is no telling

The laws of conservation say
The more things change
The more they stay the same
The more they change
The more they stay the same
The more they change
The more they stay the same
