I live in corners in your dreams
I never hide but I’m never seen
I live between the walls and you
In other words I’m in this room

I’m not surprised you don’t like me
A pair of eyes your eyes can’t see
A barely noticed draft of air
A shadow that is not quite there

What I mean is
I don’t breathe and
I don’t bleed and
I never made a noise you could hear
A hot fever
It won’t leave you
A hot fever

I wake up with my shirt soaked through
I lay awhile but I can’t move
I strain to hear but the air is dead
It’s loudest just inside my head

And then it hits me as I breathe
My breath is loud but that’s not me
From underneath the door floats in
The shadow of an incomplete best friend

What I mean is
I don’t breathe and
I don’t bleed and
I never made a noise you could hear
A hot fever
It won’t leave you
A hot fever

When you’ve been dead for so long
The only dead you’ve been was wrong
When you think that I’m gone
I send you greetings from beyond

(Bridge)

What I mean is
I don’t breathe and
I don’t bleed and
I never made a noise you could hear
A hot fever
It won’t leave you
A hot fever

When you’ve been dead for so long
The only dead you’ve been was wrong
When you think that I’m gone
I send you greetings from beyond (2x)
