Phantom Dumps

Get me to the right place.
At the right time.
In front,
And not left...
To be undermined,
By phantom dumps.

In my head I created.
Shown on shoulders weighted,
Down to be found in pain.

Get me to the right place.
At the right time.
In front,
And not undermined...
By phantom dumps.

Coming to go to hit me low.
Coming to go to kick me.

If you come to me to lift me up...
Don't sympathize my grieving you perceive.
If you come to me to lift me up...
Help me rid that phantom on my back.
Help me rid that shadow it can cast.

I'm in a slump that phantom came to dump.
And...
I refuse to feed it sympathy.
I'm in a slump that phantom came to dump.
And...
Misery it came to dump on me.

I need someone to come to lift me up.
Out of the darkness. Out from the pain.
I need someone to come to lift me up.
Into the Sunshine and out of the rain.

Get me to the right place.
At the right time.
In front,
And not left...
To be undermined,
By phantom dumps.

I need someone to come to lift me up.
Out of the darkness. Out from the pain.
I need someone to come to lift me up.
Into the Sunshine and out of the rain.

I need someone to come to lift me up.
And,
Rescue me from slumps this phantom leaves.
I need someone to come to lift me up.
And,
Off my knees.
