"The Strangest Things" as written by and Benjamin P Cooper....
The ghost inside my head, it never sleeps
It just rearranges thoughts and leaves me numb for weeks
But I'm okay, yeah I feel fine
Because I know there's more than one way to lose my mind
Lose my mind
Lose my mind
Lose my mind

The crows are at the fence, they never blink
They just sharpen all their claws and bear their twisted teeth
But I won't bend and I won't move
Don't have a lot left, just anger, and something to prove
So I can't lose
So I can't lose
So I can't lose

The cold spreads through the house
It bites my ears, I can't feel my hands or feet and I'm too scared to sleep
And now the ghosts are on the porch
Got knives in hand, oh no, I think I've seen this before
And I might lose
And I might lose
And I might lose

And all this time, I've been watching you sleep
And the strangest things have been happening to me, oh
And all this time, I've been watching you breathe
And the strangest things have been happening to me, oh

    General CommentFor me, this is about memories or regrets that haunt you and steal your sleep. The delirium of insomnia?

    General Commentfor me, it's as if the narrator used to be in love with a girl - or was obsessed or stalked her whichever and the memories or her ar haunting him and he's slowly losing his mind because he needs to be with her. and then the rest the song kind of represents him going crazy, in a murderous style so he could be schizophrenic and the things he's seeing or hearing (the ghosts) are telling him to get her with the knives in their hands. and the strangest thing thats happening to him, is what he's feeling when he see's her leaving it as a cliff hanger - whether or not he kills her or not.

    haha, i don't just my interpretation.

    General CommentBen explained this song on his forum
    "The Strangest Things is basically a song about a hermit, someone slowly losing his mind from the inside of his house. His only solace is in watching his daughter sleep (that's what the last section is about). It's what keeps all the paranoia at bay."
