"Ghost Town" as written by Arni Hjorvar Arnason, Freddie Clayton Cowan, Peter Gareth Christopher Robertson and Justin James Hayward-young....
Everyone living in ghost town
Everyone buried in waste land
We don't want to
We don't have to be like that
Living in ghost town
All the boys shout it out loud now
All the girls scream it out louder
We don't want to
We don't have to live like that

[Chorus]
Hold me back you know were never gonna back down
Hold me back you know were never gonna back down
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go of me
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go let go of me
Let go let go of me
Let go let go of me

Everyone living in ghost town
Everyone buried in waste land
We don't want to
We don't have to be like that
Living in ghost town
All the boys shout it out loud now
All the girls scream it out louder
We don't want to
We don't have to live like that

[Chorus]

It's nearly over, the last train is near
And it's leaving behind those tears
These are the bad lands
The worst place to fear
Making place for the ones we left here
They're calling calling
To say goodbye

[Repeat: x2]
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go of me
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go let go of me

Let go let go of me
Let go let go of me

    General CommentThese are the lyrics off of their MySpace site:

    Everyone living in ghost town
    Everyone buried in wasteland
    We don't want to
    We don't have to be like that
    Living in ghost town

    All the boys shout it out loud now
    All the girls scream it out louder
    We don't want to
    We don't have to live like that

    Hold me back you know we're never gonna back down
    Hold me back you know we're never gonna back down

    We're dead in this ghost town
    You better let go
    So let go, let go of me
    We're dead in this ghost town
    You better let go
    So let go, let go of me
    Let go, let go of me
    Let go, let go of me

    Everyone living in ghost town
    Everyone buried in wasteland
    We don't want to
    We don't have to be like that
    Living in ghost town

    All the boys shout it out loud now
    All the girls scream it out louder
    We don't want to
    We don't have to live like that

    Hold me back you know we're never gonna back down
    Hold me back you know we're never gonna back down

    We're dead in this ghost town
    You better let go
    So let go, let go of me
    We're dead in this ghost town
    You better let go
    So let go, let go of me
    Let go, let go of me
    Let go, let go of me

    It's nearly over
    The last train is here
    And it's leaving behind those years
    These are the bad lands
    The worst taste in fear
    Making graves for the ones we left here

    We're calling, calling to say goodbye

    We're dead in this ghost town
    You better let go
    So let go, let go of me
    We're dead in this ghost town
    You better let go
    So let go, let go of me
    Let go, let go of me
    Let go, let go of me

    General Commentsounds like it could be about a bunch of people living in a city where no one goes any where and they just get dragged down after a while. "everyone buried in wasteland" and "we're dead in this ghost town". and perhaps the younger generation is trying to break a cycle of some sort. "all the boys shout it out loud now, all the girls scream it out louder, we don't want to, we don't have to live like that". or maybe the singer is trying to warn people not to stay before it's too late. "you better let go, so let go, let go of me". or maybe he's telling the people draggin him down to let him go so he can get out because he's "dead". but those are just ideas.

    Song MeaningI think it's gotta just be another apocalyptic song. Everyone lately has been obsessed with an on coming apocalypse, and it kinda reminds me of the situation t the beginning of I am Legend (2007).

    General Commenti think its kids and rebellion too, but i think it goes beyond that, i think it's the way everyone is so blinded by society's rules and stuff like that

    we need to let go of letting other people control ourselves, and free ourselves spritually instead of being controlled my "ghost town"
