How to Be a Ghost

by Brighter Than a Thousand Suns



Just a vagrant soul

Scattered and un-whole

My blood drains out from my hope

The nothing draws near

And chokes the atmosphere

My speechless voice

My breathless lungs

They echo back what I'll become

I'm not a vessel

My body's just a cell

If I become what I fear
Who will I fight?
If I give up, would I be giving in?

If I disappear
How would you know?
Where would my fears
And phantoms go?
If emptiness
Is really hope
Then this is how to be
How to be a ghost

I live my life
To fill these holes
Giving names to
Faceless souls
If emptiness
Is really hope
Then this is how to be
How to be a ghost

I can't find just who I've become
Living all the lives I gave up
I fight for all the secrets
That I disowned in nothingness

If hope could have a name
Then the world is yours to save
So don't let the fear inside of you
Take it all away

Will I become what I fear
Or will I fight?
Will I give up?
Would I be giving in?

An apathetic apparition in the airglow
All stars give in to the shadows
With every breath, I wander the echos
But the sound of my fear sounds a lot like hope
