"Ghosts" as written by Simon Aurell, Catherine Genevieve Mary Lucas, Justin Finch, Amos Akbar Memon, Leon Eric Beckenham and Mark John West....
They stayed put in their houses
Or moved to higher grounds
There are ghosts by the reservoir
No one wants them round any more
They’ve put a spell
For the dam to break
They’ll tell you all about the day when it came
What it took away
In 1922

It caused a drought
It caused a flood
It came to change us all for good

Do I look like someone?
I’ve heard the voices through the floor
In a strange cold language
They’re planning out a war

So tap into the mainline
And tell me all the secrets
Of a world you once lived in
That your heart could not swallow
The sky is so shallow
It’s late, you’ve been working hard
Drive down to the reservoir

It caused a drought
It caused a flood
It came to change us all for good
Despite the years they’re still around
Have we fallen out for good?
