I am still living with your ghost
Lonely and dreaming of the west coast
This whole song is about a girl Art used to be with. The first two lines contribute to the theme; he’s still living with memories of the girl (her “ghost”). “Dreaming of the west coast” most likely means he needs a break so he can move on from her. Santa Monica seems endlessly distant.
