Mainline

from Modem Operandi by The Stanfields

lyrics

With no one as my witness
I solemnly declare
I'm drunk with paranoia
And rendered unaware
The engines of the universe
Conspire to grind my bones
Sell my pound of flesh
And give up the Ghost

Give up the ghost
Down on the main line
Too bad the sun doesn't shine
On the road you take
Nor the ground you tread
Take a couple of these
Go back to bed
And live your life another day

I have dreams where I am living
In solitary bliss
And I have dreams where I'm about to die
In a watery abyss
I spend my waking hours
Pixelated and engrossed
In mixed up signals
Pick up the phone
Give up the Ghost

Give up the Ghost
Down on the mainline
Too bad the sun doesn't shine
In the cave of your heart.
Or the back of your mind
Take a couple of these
Leave it all behind
And live your life another day

I lost the pulse of your rhythm
When I put my faith in chemicals
Now I find the sound of laughter unnerving
As for the dreams
They come and go
