Stayed home, saw a ghost called it a friend.
Hung from the walls in my room, wore the sheet left on my bed.
Can't say it ever haunted me, I slept just fine with worse on my mind thought I could keep it in my head.
Made it's way under my skin, tore me out from the inside.
Crawling back, breathe the dust you left behind.
Forget your sympathy; I need your time.
Burn the bed that we laid in, sleep forever in my mind.
You're deep in the ground.
Sold on like everything you ever owned.
I'm not your hand me down, just like the words you said to keep me around.
When my blood runs cold and my shell cracks; will you come back?
You'd be my hand to hold.
Well doesn't that get old?
Made my way under your skin, tore myself out from inside.
Life runs thin through the veins in my house, sit and wait for the power out.
