When You're Ready Lyrics

Artist: David Wilcox
Album: What You Whispered

from What You Whispered

You say you get so haunted by these memories
Well of course there must be plenty that you'd just as soon forget
Here's a chance to wash away your history
We haven't tried this on civilians yet
But you'll have to take that risk to get this chance at riches
And how much could it be worth to keep those same bad dreams
Just climb up on the table and let me throw the switches
Its really a remarkable machine
And the switch is by your head

And when its done, you won't know how you got here
But you could write yourself a letter, yes you'll still know how to read
Just draw yourself a map to where you're living
And put a label on each one of your keys
When your friends will try to tease you, you just won't remember
What a fool your were in high school over some old flame
Just climb up on the table I can quench the ember
The past will never bother you again
And the switch is by your head when you're ready

Truth be told, this big machine does nothing
There's a change that brings a difference into all these people's lives
To free them from the past that was their prison
What gives them passage is just the fact that they decide
You see this big machine is harmless, it just scares them shitless
Its louder than a spaceship and the lights are strange
They climb up on the table and I throw the switches
And it helps them to believe that they can change
And the switch is by your head when you're ready
