In The Presence Of A Ghost

Her eyes were caves underwater
So deep she touched a man and he sinned
The needle of poison inside his heart
Just broke in half and the poison spilled 

What a place to belong
What a place to live unfettered?
Will I see when you’re gone
That it never really mattered?
Was I wrong, was I right?
Did we fall before we faltered?
Was to say that we tried
All we ever really wanted?

They yearned for things no one wanted
And spoke in words no one understands
And every night crickets chirped and cried
About the purpose of their intents

What a place to belong
What a place to live unfettered?
Will I see when you’re gone
That it never really mattered?
Was I wrong, was I right?
Did we fall before we faltered?
Was to say that we tried
All we ever really wanted?

Sometimes a memory comes back
And I get shivers down my neck
Like in a presence of a ghost or from a cold draft
I wish our lives were houses
I wish I never let you go
I wish the past was just a room a few feet below
Now I bawl and claw and crawl
Now I bawl and claw and crawl

Now I bawl and claw and crawl

Now I bawl and claw and crawl

You stared into the distance 
It offered little resistance
The menace hid like a cheating spouse
You never looked back, not once
The flowers in my dreams
Grow in circles around the graves
Don’t be sorry for death redeems
Remorse’s how the evil preys upon you


I warned you
I warned you
I warned you
