On the line Of a nightmare

Eric Mattson

Have carried home
Inside for 15 years
Let go of my body
To carry a ghost.
Disappear around the coasts
But the Carolina’s keep
Calling me back
So does the edge of the west

Knew in a crowd of a friends,
It’s time to go
When you’re alone
All memories are now made
From far away.

Left a blonde,
            Really let her slip away,
She insists on meeting
On the line of a nightmare.
Her body is tangible in dreams
But this drifting spirit
Is banished to reality.

I’m further than ever
But still feel the same

Entered the current
Forgot who I was
All in, I embrace the flood.
