There's a ghost in my living room
In silent sets, moving through
The attic in chemicals
Dissolve in two

There's a flaw in my chemistry
The chill swells and follows me
In choirs of cold machines
And their smoking skin

These bones reside within
A crack spool of medicine
The distant hum that blooms as we run
No way to displace

In broken light
The cold grey night
A ghost still around me

Leave another ghost behind

    General CommentI can't stop listening to this song either. Something weird stirs inside me, hold me, I am scared to feel emotion...

    My InterpretationAlthough the lyrics read simple, there are discrete meanings pouring out from this song. She's singing aloud the metaphors that relate to her disequilibrium: Loneliness, and perhaps the wrenching absence of a significant other once near. With the absence, she is left with herself (in her 'living' room), as well as the memories that never seem to fade quickly enough. Kudos for being a great post-break up song that one may not regret listening to.
