LyricsEdit

When April passes by, she thinks of saying bye
She tells her mother, I am not afraid
Of dying in the bath, or swinging from up here
She asks her mother if she slept with strangers
Phantom was the bright way out
Of all the things her mother said
A whisper to her scream
An autumn in my green
December, hello frost
Her mother would say "Dad,
I don't know where April went"


She ran out in nature!


I found the Phantom would go
Across the river and hide from all the suffering
Like the shades of trees
Take off my dress and flow into the stuff we’re in
She ran out in nature
What'd she find?
She ran out in nature
Where'd she go?
She ran out in nature
Phantom light
She ran out in nature
Take her home


Everybody wants it!
Aaah! Can't you see me waste it?
She ran out in nature


We've gotta buy our land
When they go out and take all the stuff we’re in
We've got neither reachin' for the stars
And beg and keep us sufferin’
She ran out in nature
What'd she find?
She ran out in nature
Where'd she go?
She ran out in nature
Can't somebody
She ran out in nature
Take her home?


Everybody wants it!
Aaah! Can't you see me waste it!


I finally see a baby girl,
I’m sorry April, but you'll be fine till then,
I'm the Phantom, I'm the Phantom, I'm the Phantom,
When I sleep around, and you're on top,
A frenzy April, then we ride again
I'm the Phantom, I'm the Phantom, I'm the Phantom,
And in the end, your mother knows,
I’m sorry April, but a child grows
I'm the Phantom, I'm the Phantom, I'm the Phantom, I am
Watch me as I lead the way
From infancy to grown up babies


Phantom, please put on my make-up!
I am breathin’, I’ll keep callin'
Phantom, you're all white and naked!
Have your baby, I'll keep callin'
I'm not right, I'm not fakin'!
I am burnin’, and I'm shakin'
April, no, it's just a spirit!
I am there, end is nearin’


April and the Phantom
They were just like lovers
Always sneakin' kisses for the weekend
Everything's just okay with me
Everything's just alright with


April and the Phantom spoke in secret code
Until they buried Phantom by the road
Everything's just alright with me
Everything’s just alright with Phantom


Kid has got no friends
Kid has got no friends at all
