about

***This was recorded in late September 2015. Originally from an EP I planned on releasing a few months ago, and this being the only song I recorded for it, this song is about the suicide of a boy by jumping from a building. I quit recording that particular record because I realized that wasn't me. A different me, at least. Anyways enough with the sappy talk, here's an oldie-but-goodie.***

lyrics

I am a homesick angel
On the verge of going home
Under pressure of the media
And government securities

Turn on your televisions
Make sure I'm on the screen
I hope you're all watching me
As I end this twisted dream

Mother, will you miss me?
Father, will you give a care?
I can see my shadow growing
I hope the concrete's not too thin

Turn on your televisions
Make sure I'm on the screen
I hope you're all watching me
As I end this twisted dream

Turn on your televisions
Make sure I'm on the screen
I hope you're all watching me
As I end this twisted dream
A nightmare of a world collapsing
Ever so silently
I'm better off a ghost than a human
Thank you for the memories
