Unholy Ghost / Kitty's Dead Too

from There's No Place Like Nowhere by Matt DeMello



Unholy Ghost

I wouldn’t mind at all if every sky scraper should fall, if every bridge that we’ve crossed and every caution we’ve tossed to the wind should burn just like tinder or sin. What am I supposed to do now that I am rid of you? What would the neighborhood say about the downpayment we’ve made on a house with a white picket fence to keep them all out?

Lo brother, have you not enemies but the world to please? You’ll just start hating your close circle of friends. For no matter what I say, I lose. So what’s the use in withholding my righteous defense when you’ve conned the world into thinking I owe you something more than a spit in the face?

Unholy ghost, parasite to my host, know that bad blood and poison only writhe in my veins.

But if I just concentrate it may all fall away, and I’ll see the appeal of losing grip of the wheel. And diving head-first into the place of my birth, oh heavenly arms where I can do no wrong…

As I stare into your void, pretending you can still hear my voice whisper, “Please do not turn me away lest this humble sinner lose faith in the light at the end of this tunnel of white.”
