Ghost roads, nothing but neon signs
But some nights the neon gas gets free
Turns into walking dead like me

  • Stephin Merrit said it's about a vampire. Blew my mind.
  • this is HUGE!
  • someday i'll make a man out of youuuu.. just me? okay then.
  • adore how "nobody's gonna hurt you anymore, & nobody's gonna make you want to die" is juxtaposed with the "promises i'll never keep" chorus. super sock to the gut
  • SeattleJQueen- you make a good point.
  • SeattleJQueen I think Merrit is extremely metaphorical..
  • I'll have to go when the whistle blows, the whistle knows my name...
  • Next time, use only the words you need.
