Shadowless Comparison of My Ghostly Ways

I think it's time for me to go now but I'm without a place to go
and I'm too stubborn to move
I think it's time for me to simmer down; I would agree because I can
hardly feel the blood flow in my right hand
This is still so touch and go that I'd rather play the part of a half ghost
since sometimes I feel the need to just be invisible
And I'd rather take that opportunity sooner than later
I'm not in the mood to work
I'm only willing to write and write what's left of me
Though there can't be much left
This must be how Danny feels
is this how Danny feels
This must be how Shadow feels, is this how Shadow feels
This must be how Matt feels, is this how Matt feels
so hopeless, so confused, so full of rage
How can I get over this
when I still want my one chance guarantee that hasn't expired yet
Yeah it's true; I haven't been the happiest man alive
for quite some time now
But how can I be with all these mountains towering over me
I don't need help, I need a way
but I'd rather be a ghost today and recollect my thoughts
I lost my cool yesterday and today
only because I hate the way
this unsung heart keeps driving me, wanting me to be in the same
boat she's in
Just with her only
so can I be a ghost today
I'd rather be a ghost today
than the self destructive mess I call myself
