open my eyes
breathe in the sky for my direction
look to the light
at the longest self reflection
shake my hand and read my mind
you know there's nothing behind my disguise
my mind is stopped
my heart beats dropped
your eyes are soft
you're soul's been caught
when all else dies
time's the only killer left alive

pick a way (there's no reason for all this fear)
i will wait (when you only have two different ways to go)
don't be long (and when you feel yourself slowly slip away)
i'll be going (remember i was begging you to stay)

if you see me today
you'd probably see me walking away

might be late (rub your face to wipe away your mind)
wastin' time ('cause if you're still asleep your life's falling behind)
don't be long (i might not know which way the wind is blowing)
i'm impatient (at least i know which way i'm going)

don't go
but don't stay

know your hate (shave all of your hair off)
taste my mind (slice your fingers to the bone)
won't be long (knock out all your teeth 'cause)
i'll be gone (i'll be gone)
Track Name: The Ghost That Seduced Me (remix)
we slip the sheets, we hardly meet, we lay together
you hover along the bed, and float just like a feather
can't feel my teeth, can't feel your feet, lust so unmeasured
and with a whisper, you can't speak, you're into pleasure

let's make our own language

feel it, don't feel it, pretend you want to conceal it
feel it, don't feel it, open up and reveal it

ohh ohh, oh woah, oh ohh

1, 2, 3, 4 5
in silent darkness i still feel alive
can't feel your hands, can't feel you stand and walk away
and as you're leaving i can hear you say

let's make our own language

feel it, don't feel it, trying to be concealing
feel it, don't feel it, but you can't help be revealing
feel it, don't feel it, blinking hard at the ceiling
can't feel my teeth, can't feel your feet, and while you're kneeling
feel it, don't feel it, your neck goes back while you're squealing

i guess i'm sorry, i'm just so sad to see you go
'cause i'm so lonely, and i didn't even know
but it's not that way, i won't let it be, 'cause i'm not the one to blame
i was always so good to you

every time i tried, you always got offended
no matter what i'd do, you hated
all the things i said, you always got defensive
i don't know what to do
your friend it's true, it's true

this isn't my fault, you brought it on yourself
but it still stabs me, just to take a breath
but i pictured you with me not him and there's a knife between my lungs
you know it still hurts to cry

all the tears you cried and i always believed them
i guess they were for when
you said that things were gonna change
and i had been relieved when you told me that december
no matter what i do, you said i do

i lost a best friend, my best friend, my best friend

every time i tried, you always got offended
no matter what i'd do, you hated
all the things i said, you always got defensive
i don't know what to do, you said
i'll do the things you want but soon i'll have to leave you
no matter what you do, don't remember me

all the tears you cried and i always believed them
i guess they were for when
you said that things were gonna change
and i had been relieved when you told me that december
no matter what
i'll do the things you want but soon i'll have to leave you
no matter what you do, don't remember me
