Title from a misheard line in Sonic Youth's "Halloween."

lyrics

The order's ready and I'm ready, in order...
...waiting to end and rinse away the odour.

A crimson speck on a white sheet,
a shadow of a shadow on an empty street,
a crimson speck on a white sheet,
a shadow on an empty street...

Your secret is scratched in the wall.
I don't remember your voice at all.
You see, I just punch the tones -
punch the clock and leave alone.
Please just punch the tones -
punch the clock, leave me alone, leave me alone.

You're a few contractions in a dark place,
a few more lines on a dark face,
a crimson speck on a white sheet...
a crimson speck on a white sheet...
a crimson speck on a white sheet...
a crimson speck.
