Have you ever thought
Your little girl glamour shots
And the events of that whole day spent at the mall

Is maybe a part of you
You didn’t know you were clinging to?
As if that’s where the secret had taken it's hold most of all
Like a feather that finds it's invisible path as it falls

Just beneath the surface
There’s another one of me
At the root of all my trouble
In the twitch before I speak
With thoughts and revelations
Even I could not accept
So just beneath the surface
Is where he will stay kept

When you talk about me
Do you stick to the memories?
Or was I just another victim of the case?

The one that went cold on you
The way it was meant to do
For any detective that hasn’t accepted his place
And still wanders the city in hopes of it showing it's face

Just beneath the surface
There’s another one of me
At the root of all my trouble
In the twitch before I speak
With thoughts and revelations
Even I could not accept
So just beneath the surface
Is where he will stay kept

Between the thoughtless words and the wordless thoughts
Between the plotless fears and the fearless plots
Between the parts of me I keep from you and the things that I’m just not
The center keeps on drifting
The music never stops

Just beneath the surface
There’s another one of me
At the root of all my trouble
In the twitch before I speak
With thoughts and revelations
Even I could not accept
So just beneath the surface
Is where he will stay kept
