"Conversation with a Ghost" as written by and Ellis Paul....
I'll respond to you in letters
Sorry so slow, sorry so few
In a nutshell, I'm much better
So far the complaints I hear are few
So how have you been? Have you been to the races? Did you take my mother
Is your sister in braces? I wish I could've been there to see you through
Hey, are all those things you told me once still true?

Do you remember that time
It was cold in the park
You were running a race, I was there on a lark
Who would've thought that New York could be such a small town

Margaret is tired,
Let's let her get some sleep
Bored with these letters,
Let her count her sheep
So goodbye love, goodbye love

    General CommentIn Ellis's book "Notes From The Road" he explains the meaning of this song. I'm hesitant to divulge it because the song is so much more enigmatic before you know what it means--it's almost more enjoyable that way. So if you don't want a "Sixth Sense" style spoiler, don't read on...

    This song is about literally communicating with ghosts through the use of a Ouija board. "I'll respond to you in letters" is actually referring to the letters as they are laid out on the board. The following verses were written based on the responses that were given by spirits conjured up by the Ouija board during a party that Ellis attended.

    If you're looking for a more in-depth backstory, I recommend "Notes From The Road." Ellis is a gifted storyteller.
