"Ghost" as written by Maaike Lebbing and Reija Lee Thomas....
Two lovers dressed in their nightgowns
Sleeping but their souls are somewhere else
Nobody came when they called for help
There was a ghost in the boy's bedroom
Wearing the boy's mother's perfume
He didn't know he would see her soon

It's watching it change, it's somewhere in the house
It can't get away and baby cried her eyes out
It's watching it change, it's somewhere in the house
It can't get away and baby cried her eyes out

There was a leak in the kitchen sink
The carpet was red, now it's faded pink
There was enough for the walls to drink

It's watching it change, it's somewhere in the house
It can't get away and baby cried her eyes out
It's watching it change, it's somewhere in the house
It can't get away and baby cried her eyes out

We are blinded by the gleam
We are following the sheen
It's like nothing we have seen before
Now I can't tell us apart
Take the dollar from your heart
It has taken everything we are

Two lovers dressed in their nightgowns
Two lovers dressed in their nightgowns
Two lovers dressed in their nightgowns

    General Commenti really like this song. seems to have a similar theme to 'black dress' about ghosts and spirits of loved ones. perhaps its based on a dream darren had?

    General CommentI don't actually like this song so much... probably my least favourite from the new album.
    I also don't get it.
    Maybe if someone explained it to me I'd like it more?
    :)

    General Commenti'm not quite sure, but this is what i think.

    Two lovers dressed in their nightgowns, sleeping but their souls are somewhere else.
    Nobody came when they called for help.
    There was a ghost in the boy's bedroom wearing the boy's mother's perfume.
    He didn't know he would see her soon.
    It's watching it change. It's somewhere in the house. It can't get away and baby cried her eyes out.
    It's watching it change. It's somewhere in the house. It can't get away and baby cried her eyes out.

    the parents died,
    and his mothers ghost comes to watch him grow up and all.
    the baby sister can see the ghost and she doesn't like it?

    There was a leak in the kitchen sink. The carpet was red, now it's faded pink.
    There was enough for the walls to drink.
    they drowned maybe?

    We are blinded by the gleam.
    We are following the sheen.
    It's like nothing we have seen before.
    Now I can't tell us apart.
    Take the dollar from your heart.
    It has taken everything we are.
    the children are okay, so the ghosts 'go into the light', if you will.

    General CommentThis song has to be my favourite from the album. It's about Death stalking you in your own house and no matter what you do, it'll always get you in the end. You can't escape Death and it takes you by surprise.

    General CommentI love this song.
    But it really freaks me out sometimes.
