Aaron Tveit - Aftershocks lyrics

They've managed to get rid of me, returned me to the grave
ECT, electric chair, we shock who we can't save
They've cleared you of my memory and many more as well
You may have wanted some of them but who can ever tell
Your brainwaves are more regular, the chemistry more pure
The headaches and the nausea will pass and you'll endure
Your son is gone forever though, of that the doctor's sure

The memories will wane, the aftershocks remain
You wonder which is worse, the symptom or the cure

They've managed to get rid of me, I'm gone without a trace
But sear the soul and leave a scar no treatment can erase
They cut away the cancer but forgot to fill the hole
They moved me from your memory, I'm still there in your soul
Your life goes back to normal now, or so they all believe
Your heart is in your chest again, not hanging from your sleeve
They've driven out the demons and they've earned you this reprieve

The memories are gone, the aftershocks live on
But with nothing to remember, is there nothing left to grieve?

With nothing to remember...
