i’m seeing ghosts again you’re here. apparition vision don’t go disappear. i’m thinking of leaving why bother wait. it hurts too much to see your spirit evaporate. and i won’t ever try to get you to care like you used to. and you won’t even come back cause you don’t care like you used to. and i won’t ever understand why you don’t care like you used to.

i’m sick for the rest of my life. only two things scare me. broken glass and lots of it. and missing you and not doing anything about it. my shirt smells like the cigarette smoke you had in your mouth nine hours ago. instead of sniffing glue and other rock n roll habits. i’ve been inhaling whatever smells like you. along with getting high i start to feel alone. and i don’t want to tell you need you and find out all i needed was your… i’meating alone where are you. i’m dying to find a way out.
Track Name: Little Mouse Pirouettes
