Miss Hughes 03:24
Roll the celluloid across the screen For when we're free of miseries And the world's caught in the in-between Future's future and the faded dreams And when the evening passes into night And we're floating in the empty space Meet the ruins with your second sight A broken town so full of faded grace Miss Hughes, have you paid your dues? Do you wonder what it is we've got to lose? Miss Hughes, what's on your mind? Do you wonder what we're doing with our time? Did your parents tell you the real score? Are we gonna have to throw the fight? I know it's something that you've said before Tell me that I'm gonna be alright As the evening passes into dawn And we're lost among the empty space Above the ruins of the lost and gone A city broken by the concrete waste Miss Hughes, have you paid your dues? Do you wonder what it is we've got to lose? Miss Hughes, what's on your mind? Do you wonder what we're doing with our time? Miss Hughes, have you paid your dues? Do you wonder what it is we've got to lose? Miss Hughes, what's on your mind? Do you wonder what we're doing with our time?

Do you wonder what it is we've got to lose? Miss Hughes, what's on your mind? Do you wonder what we're doing with our time? The way you talk to me Like you’re the only one in the room You mention chemistry And hope we catalyze something soon I remain unencumbered I have nothing you want to claim You think I want your number But I don’t even want your name If I find a pen and write “do not perceive me” Across my forehead Will you ignore me please? Let me fade away (Like a sun bleached memory) Please fade away When you finally forget me I’ll be free You really want to know Why I don’t smile when you tease me It’s time for you to go While I just want to keep this easy If I find a pen and write “do not perceive me” Across my forehead Will you ignore me please? Let me fade away (Like a sun bleached memory) Please fade away When you finally forget me I’ll be free If circumstance allowed You’d know when to move on But since you’re hanging around I really should be gone If I find a pen and write “do not perceive me” Across my forehead Will you ignore me please? Let me fade away (Like a sun bleached memory) Please fade away When you finally forget me I’ll be free I’ll be free I’ll be free
