When you were young you felt so old,
held a lifetime in your bones.
Spent your years wishing you could disappear,
like breathe on the bedroom mirror.

Phantom limb, Vanishing Twin.

In a room without a view,
you forget what you never knew,
but you never leave it all behind,
memory and the muscle binds

Phantom limb, Vanishing Twin.


When you're grown never leave your home,
papa comes when you close your eyes?
Swim silent through a sea of sound,
never to be found,

Phantom limb, Vanishing Twin.

If you could, you would flip that switch.
If you could, you would flick your wrist.
Cross your fingers, in that trick?
See the one who ceased to exist.

To be a ghost, a relic, an apparition,
a figment of the imagination.
To walk the halls, to walk through walls.
To disappear, never to be seen again.
