Maybe

Maybe the only way to drive the ghost out
Is to replace it with a new one

Embrace one to let go of another
Shelter it with the same openheartedness
Foster it while it festers within you
Hold it securely within the voids left
Let it consume you, let it control you
As it is your strength, as well your weakness
Making it your own, enslave yourself

Until it’s time again
When the poison has finally taken over

Until it’s time again
To drive this devil out and find a new poison
To end this dream and enter a new reality
