Living on Eggshells

from In Search of Isabella by Ghost Atlantic



The night is breathing down our necks
Drifting from a rock to pale skin
Walking these rooftop gardens
My shell begins to break


I've become the easiest target
Crafted from the northern quiet
I hear them calling, always hungry and howling
Move beyond that chip on your shoulder
Wheels of truth will bowl you over
A new day is dawning, yesterday won't stop knocking
Living on eggshells

She asked me what my daydreams could be
A woman's touch or end of days
She had a face you remember
Wrapped with winter and yellow leaves

Even though this youth will fade
After all the scenery's changed
As shadows give way to ghosts
I'll find the hunger remains

Afraid of ourselves so we live in the city
Afraid of ourselves so we live in the city
Afraid of ourselves so we live in the city
Come quiet my noisy mind
