Relapse (The Same Ghost Story) -------------------------------------------
Today I woke up dreaming, dreaming I could fly
Too late, I've hit the ground and woke falling to my demise
But I'd like to say I'd be there lying face down in the dirt
I'd like to think I attained flight and relapsed before I died
It doesn't matter now
The same ghost stories being read aloud
Scrutinized prophet only crucified
How they begged for him to come back down
I envy the stillborn
Get out while you still can
Never have to fear the rich man
Never have to lie to a friend
Let go and just move on
Sleeping dogs will lie you see
It's never too bad if there's enough to eat
And the smoke will clear
The dust dies down
Left you blind for years in the blink of an eye in a relapse
You just relapsed, you'll be fine
I am used to feeling so overjoyed
And I've lost you in projecting those decoys in defense
The pursuit; hang on to what precious pretense that we have got to
'til I find you sighing in the ear of a comrade I thought I knew
While I'm on your mind
Wanna crawl into REM?
Leave it all behind?
And crawl into bed?
this does seem kind of lyrical. perspectively it seems all over the place, but considering it sounds alot like modern lyric it can't be too irrational to state that we're all over different places these days.
it seems undecided but not smearing a face from either side. a little dark in tone as it progressed, but nothing more than......mainstream alternative. i get it, at least i think. the last stanza seems almost pointless especially being at the end to think of it in a linear fashion.........(not really conveying my thought well here so sorry for that). so yeah i like it, i think my only personal dis likes was that the repitition seemed out of place. but given pace that might be me reading......so i can't say for sure, but it didn't work for me. um yeah and that last stanza, but maybe with a few more reads i'll pull it in. seems better earlier in the piece.
