"Ghostship" as written by Justin Andrew Harris, Daniel Frederic Seim and Brent Knopf....
Majesty
Her majesty sails across the sea
And there’s a new theory for each passing week
For each covered up case of doublespeak
And I’ve got a feeling we are counting sheep
We’re in over our heads
This analogy
Only fits when I bow and call you

Majesty
Her majesty sails across the sea
And there’s a new theory for each passing week
For each covered up case of doublespeak
And I’ve got a feeling we are counting sheep
We’re in over our heads
This analogy
Only fits when I bow and call you

    General Commentok wow. I love how this song is structured. The lyrics are great, made even better by looping the verse. Just really smart and interesting. That pretty much sums up menomena.

    General Commentwell i think it has something to do with a false promise, and that the person telling the song, is on the short end of the deal. And I would just like to state out that if anyone actually went out and physically bought the cd, if you study the insides and outs of the cover, the songs are all put somewhere in the drawings. just letting you know....

    General CommentHmmm... doesn't ghostship refer to a ship with skeletal crew? As in: ships lost at sea which spend eternity drifting aimlessly, with a skeletal crew who pine forever for their families, their loved ones?

    General CommentWell, it wasn't invented by George Orwell and it was coined in the 1950s.

    General CommentNewspeak is what Orwell uses in 1984. Doublespeak didn't come as a term until after Orwell's death.

    General Commenti agree, the first time i heard this song, my mind immediately connected it to Orwell's 1984

    General CommentIt...makes me think of the weather, with "her majesty" being the sun. Each week the meteorologist makes some guesses for the forecast and we listen intently and talk about it with each other just as a way to pass the time, weather is too complex for us to understand in any long term sense. He relates it at the end to the unpredictable nature of a loved one.
