about

This song is written from the perspective of a classic video game character that you all know and love.

lyrics

i forget why
all this consuming i do
there’s a hunger i’ve got
that i can’t remember not
at all having once had

and fear is the reason i move
it’s so unhealthy, oh i know
i would like a better impetus

i’m gonna die
death’s always nipping my heels
i can turn it away
with a pellet that i take
but only for so long

already a-flashing again
i’m so afraid of all the ghosts
who look like someone i used to know

and oh, this maze is making me ill
my mind’s so numb i no longer feel
the walls have no beginning or end
i’m wishing for an exit but to wish is useless
(to keep playing, insert another coin)

then one day i
turn ‘round a corner and you
nearly crash into me
with your ribbon and your cheek
and that is how we meet

tho yellow i no longer fear
any phantoms i’ve known
i would frighten if you went away
