Girls, come on over. I’m too loath to twist and shout. Got rose haze for the nightshade and some bubblegum for your pout. RSVP to be not going out.
Going out’s just chasing the ghost of a good time. It gets you caught up in the rewind. Chasing the ghost of a good time, you start to regress to a past life. Chasing the ghost of a good time. I got it good when I’m inside. Never go.
Red bottoms on the sofa, or party in a cabin in the woods? Trailblaze in the wildness. Wouldn’t compass there if I could. Here’s me, where I said I’d be.
Chasing the ghost of a good time gets you caught up in the rewind. Chasing the ghost of a good time, you start to regress to a past life. Chasing the ghost of a good time. I got it good when I’m inside. Let it go.
Was the crowd always so dense? Used to think I could step to it. Now I hoof to the garden, hope lilacs pop through. Heavy fog, mistook for aura, casting light not pink or blue. Traded most of my vice for botanical muses, scared but not clueless. Say, how can you thrive in this state,
creeping from vines? These debased trawls in the cooler for sling - why not stay in?
Chasing the ghost for a good time. They’re all by my side when I’m inside. So come on over.
