Rear-View

I broke vows and oaths
To leave out of the blue
I've grown to fear and loathe
The world in the rear-view

Ghosts on my tail
I drive to get away
And leave my past behind
I don't want to stay

I broke all my bones
To shape myself anew
And now I see my own
Face in the rear-view

Ghosts on my tail
I drive to get away
And leave my past behind
I don't want to stay

I drained all my blood
And every drop was blue
Water from the flood
Vestiges from the rear-view

Ghosts on my tail
I drive to get away
And leave my past behind
I don't want to stay

I learned to read the stars
To guide me through and through
Hitchhiked and every car
Had ghosts in the rear-view

Ghosts on my tail
I drive to get away
And leave my past behind
Keep the ghosts at bay
