A Lonely Ghost

Take away my lifelines
Watch me fade away
I am the Gravity Killer

Wake me up with nightmares
Fill my head with ash
I am the Shadowman

Kill me in the nightlights
Burden me with ghosts
I am the Gravity Killer

Feed me hurt for breakfast
And loneliness for lunch
I am the Shadowman

I grow roots in the darkness
I grow roots in the walls
I am gone

I fall silent like soundwaves
On the shores of your mind
I am gone

Will you think of me
Dream of me
Hold me close

As I fade away
Fly away
A lonely ghost.
