I think I'll be a good ghost when it's time for me
To haunt all the people I knew when I was alive

I wear designer sheets as my only ghost clothes
And get good scissors to cut the eye-holes

And hey it'll be nice
To be seen through for a while
And hey it'll be cool
To be feather-light for a while

I think I'll be a good ghost when it's time for me
To haunt all the people I knew when I was alive
But i wonder if the girl ghosts will know that I am there
Or if ghosts in general don't really care

And hey it'll be nice
To be seen through for a while
And hey it'll be cool
To be feather-light for a while

And hey it'll be nice
To be seen through for a while
And hey it'll be cool
To be feather light for a while

    General CommentTrying to reassure himself about death not being that bad (duh?). Reminds me of Sydney Carton, a little.
    I love "but I wonder if the girl ghosts will know that I am there.. or if ghosts in general don't really care."
    Yay for this song's existence.

    General Commentbtw this song implies that if you were ignored by cute girls in life, the same may be true of the afterlife. That's depressing.
