lyrics

i had a scare on the stairs
i saw an old ghost who was loitering there
haunting the same place it used to appear

i says right, get a life
the futures no cure for the past but tonight
the present's a doctor the medicine's light
prescribe you a song you can take for the fright

here in the world waiting for life
i chanced on a song it didn't belong to me
in my defense living is spent chasing the crest of a wave
you can't blame a ghost, it relies on a host to breathe

old bad me i say goodbye
i happen to believe in something i'm surprised
by nothing
and those crimes were only doing harm
to old bad me

i could tell by his eyes
the phantom was shocked by the living surprise
his chains wouldn't work for once in their lives

i caught a whiff of the stiff
crawling back up the place where he lives
the past is just mould
he can keep it, it's his

here overground, watching the clouds
chasing the shapes as they fall
fixing my gaze on positive ways and thoughts

despite all my planning
something uncanny is sleeping beneath where i think
and sending me shivers and whispered delivers of loss

old bad me i say goodbye
i happen to believe in something i'm surprised
by nothing
and those crimes were only doing harm
to old bad me

old bad me i stood around some attic
trying to force out laughter it just sounds so tragic
and those crimes were only doing harm
to old bad me

about

Richard Egan Malmö, Sweden

here's a little home recorded experiment of stuff, my friends always tell me i never release most of the stuff i do, and that is true to be honest because i see song writing as a gift to help with my mental health..
so when the song is done i feel like in a way it has served it's purpose..
hope you're good and i hope you dig the roughness and weirdness of these tunes..
