“A Ghost”
Written by Jameel Farruk

I don’t have a thing you want
What I have is all I got

Don’t think past what’s clear to me
Still unsure what my life means
I slip into the Andaman
Lose my legs, find them again

On Railay Beach with Mary Jane
I have something I need to say
I’m empty and I’ve lost my way
I loved someone, she wouldn’t stay
She left me cold and feeling grey
She threw our last five years away
I hope you help me with my pain
Please warm my lips and kiss my brain
Come mess me up but keep me sane
Don’t fuck me like that bitch cocaine
Then promise me I’ll be okay
Show me there’s a better way
Calm me through this endless night
Pick me up and hold me high

I don’t know what you need
All I have is what you see

The love I had, better than most
A girl I love, she’s now a ghost
I drown her in the Andaman
Don’t look back, don’t give in

On Railay Beach with my friend, Ryan
Laughing cause we’re fucking high
Gaze up at a mackerel sky
Satellites that blink and spy
Calling out each others’ lies
Stories we mark classified
Talkin’ ‘bout the by-and-by
Place bets on the rising tide
Holler as the girls pass by
We think we’re acting superfly
It’s more like drunk and super sly
Magic shakes, we’ve lost our minds
Fall into an endless night
Get back up and get on high

I got all that I want
All I need is what I got
