​Memory's Stain

This song is by Cass McCombs and appears on the album Wit's End (2011).

Memory's stain appeared to you in the bath
Memory's stain, body laundered, Soul it hath

I have a confession
In the form of a question:
How could you entertain
Trading know-how for a stain?

Look now, I'm no better
Look now, our thrift sweater
Pulled over you

Look now, how wide are the holes!
Look now, the power it holds
Over you

Well, I'll be damned!
A calf is easy to brand

Memory's stain; you're not content with my answer
Memory's stain; on the cusp of Gemini and Cancer

You're not bored, just sleep deprived
Drunk on jealousy and pride
Boozing is the highest aim
When spittle won't get out Memory's stain

Look now, I'm no better
Look now, our thrift sweater
Pulled over you

Look now, how wide are the holes!
Look now, the power it holds
Over you

Well, I'll be damned!
A calf is easy to brand
