Like the best ideas it came to me in the shower
And believe me it was good
Everybody would
Have thought it was the brilliance of the hour

It was so completely perfect and genius
It was a self-revolution
A perspective convolution
Its commitment to my memory would be seamless

So did I write it down? (No)
There must be something wrong with me
Why didn't I write it down?
My ticket to the big time is washed away
And forever lost to the ether

What does it mean to be once in a lifetime
It feels like once a day
I'm throwing away
A grand epiphany before bedtime

I can easily sympathize with the movie Memento
I need system of record
It'll be so effective
And then I'm sure I'll end up muy contento

But did I write that down? (No)
There must be something wrong with me
Why didn't I write it down?
My ticket to the big time is washed away
And forever lost to the ether

Oh but look I've found it tucked away
On a corner of the internet where everything's saved
And the world is watching me singing it
Ok I'm fine with at least ONE person hearing it

I've gotta write that down!
Of course there'd still be something wrong with me
What didn't I write down?
Did my ticket to the big time get washed away
And forever lost to the ether
And forever lost to the ether
And forever lost to the ether
