If you could read my mind love What a tale my thoughts could tell Just like an old time movie 'Bout a ghost from a wishin' well In a castle dark or a fortress strong With chains upon my feet You know that ghost is me And I will never be set free As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see If I could read your mind love What a tale your thoughts could tell Just like a paperback novel The kind that drugstores sell When you reach the part where the heartaches come The hero would be me But heroes often fail And you won't read that book again Because the ending's just too hard to take I'd walk away like a movie star Who gets burned in a three way script Enter number two A movie queen to play the scene Of bringing all the good things out in me But for now love, let's be real I never thought I could act this way And I've got to say that I just don't get it I don't know where we went wrong But the feelin's gone and I just can't get it back If you could read my mind love What a tale my thoughts could tell Just like an old time movie 'Bout a ghost from a wishin' well In a castle dark or a fortress strong With chains upon my feet But stories always end And if you read between the lines You'll know that I'm just tryin' to understand The feelin's that you lack I never thought I could feel this way And I've got to say that I just don't get it I don't know where we went wrong But the feelin's gone And I just can't get it back

I learned from years of reading Marx That Surplus is meant to be spread To people who have less than you I know I have so much to give I give it all to you But you revolt citing suppression protesting my fascist affection I gave you all I had to give from one to another Baby what can I say? I’m a communist lover I picture you a swan in love Two birds of a feather We traveled to the highest point above an Estuary You dive down but I cannot I’m not a swan I’m only a canary So I’ll stay alone and sing my tunes To keep me company I’ve built a monopoly on sad songs disguised with references to obscurity You took to heart The capitalists calling you a leech But I happily obliged just to have you in my reach I learned from years of reading Marx That Surplus is meant to be spread To people who have less than you I know I have so much to give I give it all to you But you revolt citing suppression protesting my fascist affection I gave you all I had to give from one to another Baby what can I say? I’m a communist lover

I think that things might be okay If we just spend some time away I know you’re tired It’s cold outside And sometimes I can’t help but cry But I love you so much I think we should try I think that things will be okay If we just give it a day I’ll still be here When you’re ready I will hold you safe and steady In your mind you weigh me down But when I’m with you I am a cloud I’ll put away the bridal gown And give you room to think aloud The world is scary Dark and vast And maybe we were moving fast Accelerationism is enticing But not when you are sacrificing Smaller moments more important In your bedroom getting high Walking on waves and swimming in the sky The comfort of the dark with you The smell of your skin made me feel new I will watch you shave your head And I will fix the sheets on your bed And we will watch strange foreign movies While I pray that you choose not lose me There is so much more than What i can say in stupid songs I write while you’re away There is nothing I could sing To explain to you Ethan Gathy How much I love you
