Every day of every year
You live your life in hope and fear
That each small sin and imperfection
Is buried deep beyond detection
But one by one the ghosts return
And each selects its place to burn
Into your soft and breaking heart
And this is how the aching starts

The jokes about the ugly kid
The things you said but never did
And the people torn and crushed and battered
The ones you broke but should've flattered

Oh, you should have run whilst you had time
Oh, you should have left the past behind

The boy from the chemist is here to see you
The laughing stops 'cause he's too near you
The girl you left that always loved you
Returns to earth from miles above you now

So wash away the dirty skin
There's always worse remains within
The tangled web and bitter mesh
But each shall have their pound of flesh
No sympathy, no charity
No false pleas of humility
No money back, no guarantee
No great escape for you and me

Oh, you should have run whilst you had time
Oh, you should have left the past behind

The boy from the chemist is here to see you
The laughing stops 'cause he's too near you
The girl you left that always loved you
Returns to earth from miles above you now

And everyone that ever suffered
Friend or foe or wives and lovers
They'll come back to have their day
In time you find your mind has no escape

Don't believe that you can hide
Don't believe they'll be denied
They'll come knocking at your door
This is what they've waited for
The chance to even up the score

The boy from the chemist is here to see you
The laughing stops 'cause he's too near you
The girl you left that always loved you
Returns to earth from miles above you now

And everyone that ever suffered
Friend or foe or wives and lovers
They'll come back to have their day
In time you find your mind has no escape
