Glass Ghost

about

There was a man,
the man was your friend,
at least you thought so,
until it did end.

Then you did learn,
despite all your trust,
a snake telling lies,
left you in the dust.

Your violent hands thrust
out to his absent throat.
The man was your friend,
now he's a Glass Ghost.

lyrics

Like pain
Without the urgency
Your words stream through me
I have felt
A reflection of myself
Backpedaling
I let the ones I love
Tear me down
Never again will you tear me down

This magnet heart infiltrated,
full of trust, it turned to hate.
It petrified, solidified,
to eradicate a thousand lies.
Blind my eyes, to hold you tight
I couldn’t let you go
Reflections of a Glass Ghost.

Betraying everything I once knew to be true
But I couldn’t imagine a life without you
Still waiting for a stained reflection to shine
Clear again.

Ferocious indignation
Love’s own stinging hatred
Scourned, broken pieces mourned
Never again will you tear me down

Clutch me to your chest
Fabricate the rest
Dimly lit eyes with Darkened skies
Tearing all the wind from my lungs
I sin to see you smile
Watch the façade crack
And you are lost
Lost to the wind

Once dear
Now unfamiliar
A figure made of glass
Stands to watch you pass
As you’re crumbling
Letting cerebral discord
Fracture our past
Never again will I let you back
Never again will I let you in
Magnet heart infiltrated,
full of trust, it turned to hate.
It petrified, solidified,
to eradicate a thousand lies.
Blind my eyes, to hold you tight
I couldn’t let you go
Reflections of a Glass Ghost.
