lyrics

Hungry Ghost

Go back inside,
there’s nothing here to see.
Don’t try to describe
me to me,

‘Cause if you can think it,
I’ve already said it
in a meaner way.
And anyway, the thing is
I try to forget it,
but it’s here to stay.

And I’m sick of everybody leaving me for dead—
all I hear is people grieving,
even in my head.
They say that what you give is what you get;
I gave you everything, and all I got
is a lot of regret.

Come back inside,
it’s getting cold out here.
I want to survive
another thousand years.
And this is the reason
I can never tell you
what I mean to say:
the sounds I’m making,
you’ve already heard ‘em
in a cleaner way.

But I’m sick of everybody leaving me for dead—
all I hear is people grieving,
even in my head.
They say that what you give is what you get;
I gave you everything, and all I got
is a lot of regret.
