The Ghost Was Me All Along (Leger)
The ghost was me all along
Haunting myself
Creaking the door
Howling through the pipes
Waking up the stairs
Scarying up the past
I assumed it was
Love's dangerous friends
Twisting the night away
Fooling dedication

Each night I would try to startle you
But you weren't you
Yelling into the mirror
I punished my sight
What a terrifying thing
A haunted house everywhere
The hunter haunting the hunt
Haunting himself
No bookends
No hunger

The old hag
The shadow
My dismissal
Your loathing
My life is knowing
That I haven't forgotten her
She comes around
To torment a drunk
Make a heartbreaker eat the dead leaves
And drink wounded blood

Cackling through the nightmare
I sleep with one eye blurred
And the blues hit me
Off of a broken piano
Manic notes stagger
And fall to a slow death
Insanity clouding
Will tomorrow let me in
Is this tomorrow
Was that tomorrow
Are you tomorrow
Will you keep me as a ghost
