Rain's patting down hard on my cheeks
i'm wiping the bugs outta my hair
ignorant vehicles drive past my thumb
i am dying? or just not trying?
whatever it is, i've become a ghost in my hometown
not a single person knows i'm around
i watch the people congregate by me
i sympathise their awful lives
as they too become ghosts in their hometown

you'll feel it soon, it's like a cold hard breath
if you think this is doom, then you ain't seen death
stomachs are churning, fingers go stiff
hearts turn to flames, become another lost myth

once a hero, always a leach
this hometown was the end of me
forgotten crowds that will not sleep
experienced death and will not weep

once a hero, always a leach
this hometown was the end of me
forgotten crowds that will not sleep
experienced death and will not weep
c'mon!

i'm a ghost, i'm a ghost, i'm a ghost, i'm a ghost, i'm a motherfuckin' ghost!
i'm a ghost, i'm a ghost, i'm a ghost, i'm a ghost, i'm a motherfuckin' ghost!

    General Commentthis is about someone's fear of being forgotten. people are always trying to make a difference and stand out from the crowd. this song basically talks about this all going wrong and forgetting the person who tried so hard to become something big.
