  • You lost your focus
    But I got a plan for it
    With a secret ingredient
    And you are infinitely invited
    Just leave alone the Geminis
    Two of them and four of I's
    (And you are infinitely Invited)

    No one could not agree (it's unanimously decided)
    They've come for you and me (that we're dangerously surrounded)
    Their boats are full of flames
    They paint the grasses green
    Repeating history
    They don't say what they mean

    Is it amnesia?
    Amamaemonesia
    Mistaken for magic? (Mistaken for magic.)
    Silver hours
    Silver hours
    Becoming a habit? (Chasing the rabbit.)
    Is it amnesia?
    Amamaemonesia,
    Mistaken for magic? (Mistaken for magic. Mistaken for magic.)

    Spacing out in a nook and cranny
    It's officially uncanny
    It's a fish in a sea of granite
    Just leave alone the geminis
    Two of them and four of I's
    No one could not agree (it's unanimously decided)
    They've come for you and me (that we're dangerously surrounded)
    Their boats are full of flames
    They paint the grasses green
    Repeating history
    They don't say what they mean

    Is it amnesia
    Amanaemonesia
    Mistaken for magic (Mistaken for magic.)
    Silver hours
    Silver hours
    Becoming a habit (Chasing the rabbit.)
    Is it amnesia
    Amanaemonesia
    Mistaken for magic (Mistaken for magic. Mistaken for magic. Mistaken for magic.)

    ?

    There's a system of symbols that no one will vouch for
    Everyone uses, but no one believes
    There's a dog in the yard with a manner that's ruff
    Yet there's something about you that he understands
    The girl at the window, covered in ashes
    Smiles grotesquely in the light of the day
    Singing in German, a cold summer warning
    But I can't remember what I meant to say...

    Is it Amanaemonesia
    (Mistaken for magic.)
    Amanaemonesia, woah
    (Chasing the rabbit)
    Amanaemonesia
    (Mistaken for magic. Mistaken for magic. Mistaken for magic.) Writer/s: Caroline Elizabeth Polachek, Jonathan Patrick Wimberly, Rob Coradetti
