I was on the grassy knoll
Watching through my telescope
That's all it was, a telescope, I swear
Monday night I dreamt I missed you
Doubled back and tried to kiss you
Then I jumped down on the tracks
Closed my eyes, turned my back, said

I know a little trick
To make myself disappear
I used it once before
That's how I ended up here, oh
I disappear, disappear

By now I'm just an anecdote
A loser story that you tell
Probably not so often or so well
I never meant to cause you pain
Next time I'll say that again
Mean it every time I say it
No one ever learns, let's face it


I should celebrate
Escaping with my life
When now I don't remember what you stole
I could, but it's too late
For looking over my shoulder
I'm too busy getting older
And I don't want to pay that toll

Underneath the microscope
I wouldn't hold up very long
Face it now, I've never been that strong
You're flat-out out of your mind
And I'm so tired of being kind
Sorry 'bout the mess from moving
Nothing's left that's worth improving
