Something eats inside of me
I don't know where to go to get away
Walk to the Gallery.
Wendy waits inside for me
She pours my drink and quickly looks away
She's seen a better me

Old books from 1917
steal scenes I saw just yesterday.
I turn to look but she is gone
This haunting wants me all alone.

You don't shoot pool down at the Gallery
Excuses tell me its the little things.
This mystery knows just how to bother me
It blows the wind when I've been hearing things.

These hollow faces know my name
Those subtle grins just aren't the same
Footsteps with no one in the hall
follow me since I was just three feet tall

Oh, that locked up closet in the hall
That run-down ranch up in the hills
(Shattered glass lady screams, a soul with stolen dreams)
A soul wants me to take the fall
(Another evening in the Gallery)

This story ain't my strength
I tell it like it is
Clinched up in my fist most every day
Breathe it like a drug
Swinging like a thug
I take my final chug living the desperate way.

I thought I questioned what is right
Don't give up your thoughts without a fight
That holy vigor it is gone
and between all of these ghosts not one can show you love.
