Niko cannot even's picture

my skeletal remains sway in the wind,
i am just the skeleton in your closet
another faded memory you have pushed aside,
you think you know it all, don't you?

can't you hear me whisper to you?
can't you hear the awkward clattering of a ghost's tongue?
don't you know what it's like to sway in the wind?
to feel the winds icy breath rush through you?
don't you know what it's like to talk to ghosts?

i wish i didn't.
i feel sick, hollow.
my bones desperately clattering in the wind.
i wish i wasn't stuck in this hanging tree,
i wish you could hear me.
i want to rest peacefully.

grab my bones from the hanging tree
lay me down and mark the grave,
for i am long gone.
don't pretend that you don't know.
that's worse.

take my bones from the hanging tree
i don't want them anymore.
i just want to sleep.
these dreams plague my mind.
these thoughts won't leave now that they're here.
they just get more persistent.
they haunt my dreams.
they torture my sleep.

take me back to the hanging tree,
for i don't know what life is like beyond it.
