And thanks for branding me a failure
And for destroying what joy I had
The mantles cracked
And turning black
I found out I'm not the man
That I fucking think I am

And you're just like a fucking ghostie
You trouble me when I try to sleep
The sombre way
You held your face
And we can never erase
All the stupid things we say

And I hope that you're dreaming of me
The way I'm forced to dream of you
And so you've won
I'll get the gun
Cos we can never undo
All the stupid things we've done

    General CommentMatt Elliott's stuff is so bleak and dark, but it's so good! This was the first track of his I heard after completely going crazy for his second album as Third Eye Foundation, Ghost. It's absolutely nothing like the shambling hulk of textures and sheer horror that Ghost was, but it's still got its fair share of brooding hopelessness. I think the meaning is pretty clear, here- guy gets his dignity destroyed by someone and it haunts him until he kills himself. Pretty bleak stuff!
