Sending another message across the seas
to drown in my mirage
and dwell among my sunken fantasies:
such a perfect entourage

I can still remember
all the buildings and the rain
my cigarette a glowing ember
lighting up at each refrain

Now I only breathe when I’m in a car
or when, at last,  it’s dark
so get me out of here, drive far
and may the miles leave some mark

Soon, soon, almost
but here I am still
haunting the hallways like a ghost
