I got bad news today

I got bad news today but my ring tone was a fart.

Ghost machine 

In the mirror all I see Is a darling ghost machine Cranking out images That look like me

Yeah you’re miles ahead But are you on the straightaway To a different place than where you want to be?

I’ve been seeing ghosts of you Your fingers cut like a cocaine razor blade

My demons have but pulled me through My friends they kill me every single day

Shes moving me to move her- in the mirror caressing her thighs “Just give it a try. save your life,” she cries

You dig into me like a puncture wound Thinking fast about how I want to hold you back

I’ve been seeing ghosts of you You speak through pictures that seem to know my name

My nightly stirrings have woken you I’ll take our swan’s song down into my grave

I know what I need to do

I know what I need to do

Cause you know what I’ve done to you 

When you see my eyes they are seeing two

Yeah baby, I know what I need to do

Can’t look at my self straight in the mirror 

Can’t turn my eyes to meet my neighbor’s 

No, you can’t smile when they smile at you 

No you can’t taste what they’re smelling on you

You’re miles ahead but are you on the straightaway to a different place than the one you want to be

I’m a sycophant earning my prize one disgrace at a time

I know what I need to do

Cause you know what I’ve done to you

When you see my eyes they are seeing two 

Yeah baby I know what I need to do 

I’ve got a friend that insists I do some crime 

“Just give it a try. It’s time to save yourself,” she cries

Shes moving me to move her- in the mirror caressing her thighs

“Keep feeding your skeletons,” she lies 

They kill me everyday

They kill me everyday
