This voice is calling me
And it's forcing my hand to move in some ways
I never taught it to
It's your spooky action at a distance, held with grace

I never suspected you
Would hold this much sway over my day to day
It's an embarassment
It's your spooky action at a distance, pulling away

Entangled as a pair
Regardless of the air
Between our counterparts
We are each other's art

And I know it won't suffice
To say I know it won't sit right
But to have you torn from life
Don't stop your actions at night
And I know these girls are fools
And their eyes pierce through my goal
But your spooky action's pull is the tether to my poll
And I know it won't sit right
And I know it won't hold tight
And I know it won't keep quiet
And I know it won't cause riots

The silence is killing me
So I make some noise to fill my head's big void
My chest is my reverb plate
The ideas from my knees travel up through my pelvic bone

I thrust to expell my need
But the benefits sober up with the booze
I wish I could stand with you
But your spooky action at a distance

I haven't been scared enough
By your ghostly hand reaching out through the walls
Catching my trips and falls
It's my safety net dragging me back to my own shore

Since I was sixteen years
There's not been one day I have not thought of you
I forget all other names
It's your spooky action at a distance
