Yesterday arrived too quickly caught me right off guard, my defence moved in too slowly missed it by a yard - I'd just settled down with a bottle of gin, so I moved on to whiskey and it hit me again. Memories were raining punches down on my head, knocked me into the past so quickly they almost raised the dead. So I drank some more booze and it helped me to sleep where I dreamed of my youth and the secrets I keep.

Oh, history is a friend of mine she comes over to my place and we have a good time, but the memories she sometimes brings with her get out of line they're out of line. Show me things I don't want to see (wanna see, wanna see, wanna see) remind me of who I thought I was gonna be (ganna be, gonna be, gonna be) take me places I used to go (used to go, used to go) a long long time ago.

When I woke I remembered nothing suppose that's just as well and although my head was aching I could hear a bell. So I put on some clothes and I reached my front door, when I pulled it wide open she joined me once more.

A long long time ago.

Not sectioned is brilliant. Sort of implies they have faith in you?
