Requiem for Some Band

lyrics

Sure, it's gonna be fine.
I know we'll be remembered in time.
Is a lie still a lie if no one hears it?

Ghosts that come to me come through the stereo.

And there's nothing quite like it, the sound of leaving.
Ghosts that come to me come through the stereo.

"Have you forgotten what we were like when we were still first rate?"*

But my brain won't settle on anything,
so la di da di da di da.

Is a joke still a joke if no one hears it?
We'll be winding it down.

Ghosts that come to me come through the stereo.

And there's nothing quite like it, the sound of leaving.
Ghosts that come to me come through the stereo.

*Misquoted from Frank O'Hara's "Animals" (1950)
