"Mem'ries, Light the corners of my mind..."

The sound of the shower, three closed doors, an entire floor away, Tommy starts rummaging desperately through the shit on the table in the music room. When that doesn't unearth either headphones or earbuds, he scrambles for the stereo.

"Misty watercolor memories..."

His first attempt gives him a whine of feedback before he remembers that Lee had been messing around with hooking it up through the TV the night before. As he paws through the mass of cables and wires, he yells, "Fucking damn it, Adam. Shut up."

"Of the way we were."

"Mem'ries, may be beautiful and yet..."

Tommy flicks on the TV, but gets a fuzzy screen. Wrong fucking channel, he thinks, and goes searching for the remote. "Jesus, fuck, you asshole. Not that song."

"What's too painful to remember..."

Hands over his ears don't work, so he goes racing up the stairs. "Shut up. Shut up. Shut up."

"We simply choose to forget..."

The bathroom door bangs against the wall as he slams through it. "Shut up, you motherfuck..."

And his brain derails because water's dripping down Adam's naked body and he's grinning.

"Join me in the shower next time?"
