Reading a little Telltale Heart and this came out ...

lyrics

Take your body when you go next time
I know that you enjoy being the ghost
But I'm tired of playing host to skin and bones

Leave a shadow on the wall, at least
Wake me in the middle of the night with a breath, a sigh
A glance up, and if I'm lucky, a guarded smile

You're dead. You're dead
But the squealing of the floor, it tears a hole in my head
You're dead. You're dead
Leave me to enjoy the quiet I have left

You sit for hours in the same old chair
But where are all the chilling sighs, the haunted nights, the moving curtains on the window of a windless night?

If you're gone I want your ghost, at least
To haunt me in the middle of the night with a breath, a sigh
And then I can bury the eye after all this time

You're dead. You're dead
But the squealing of the floor, it tears a hole in my head
You're dead. You're dead
Leave me to enjoy the quiet I have left

you promised me the horror of the living dead
(but you're just a body without your ghost)
