the tip of your tongue
it's sad but it's stuck
and bent on your lungs
on what they have sung
the devil had thrown
all of his darts
till death fell apart
and attached to my heart

i'm held up in bars
in people and cars
the joker had shattered
all but to shards
to reflect batting eyes
anxiety and lies
i'll trade them for wine
on poison i'll dine

ghosts play piano like they never played before
i hope you played before like you never drank before
ghosts will be dancing like they never danced before
i hope you danced before, i don’t want to step on your toes

please take my sleep
because that’s what i need
don't let me sleep
don’t kill me please
pills will rewrite
what i recite
for the next couple years
those years of my life

i know all the sick
are all being tricked
it’s the healthy that lost
all of their wits
to reflect batting eyes
anxiety and lies
i'll trade them for wine
on poison we'll dine

ghosts play piano like they never played before
i hope you played before like you never died before
ghosts will be dancing like they never danced before
i hope you danced before, i don't want to step on your toes

i'll keep on running from what you become
it's not what you’ve said
it's what you have done
you keep on running from what you become
it's not what you’ll say
it's what you will do
it's what you will do

i swear it's the pillow, that won't give me back my head
the alligator it's the baby, the crocodile eats the baby

kill them
it's ok to kill them
they don't mind
because they're dead
they don't need to see me
when i'm up in my bed
it's ok to pretend
pretend you're all mine
you're mine

ghosts play piano like they never played before
i hope you played before like you never drank before
ghosts will be dancing like they never danced before
i hope you danced before, i don’t want to step on your toes

i'll keep on running from what you become
it's not what you’ve said
it's what you have done
you keep on running from what you become
it's not what you’ve said
it's what you have done
it's what you will do
i swear it’s what you will do

    General Commenti have no idea what this song means. a lot of Trophy Scars songs put relationship troubles in terms of fantastical ideas such as ghosts and dreams.

    i do know that his voice sounds so much like Conor Oberst's, and that this song is catchy as hell.
