I’m this town’s ghost.
Live in aether, life bequeather;
Hasty to quash the flame.
But I’m transparent just the same.
Beneath the veil of darkness,
There’s nothing but black.
And now I’m too far gone to find my own way back.
I don’t follow conventions
In my alternate dimension;
The quintessence of the world,
A fantasy, as you infer.
I need an intervention.
If my intentions were pure,
Surely I’d have set fire to the earth.
But I’m not so sure anymore,
Not sure what I’ve been looking for.
So I just haunt this town
Making scary sounds.
But now I want to be found.
Can you hear me if I speak clearly?
I’m out here on my own.
I know we’re all just walking each other home,
But the lights go out one by one as I walk by;
I’m dead but breathing for the time being.
I’ve tried to be a friend to most.
And yet I don’t know why I’m still this town’s ghost.
