You let in the ghost of her
Now I see it everywhere
Take your body back
But oh oh please leave me the fear

Loneliness is in the air
Even the birds are in pairs
I can hear it in their peeping
oh what a feeling

And I get the strangest feeling
When I float up to the ceiling
All the blubbering and moans come
From my body down below

They'll come in twos
Follow when I lean my tomb
I can hear it in their peeping
Oh what a feeling

They'll take whatever they want
And they'll have whatever they want
And they'll take whatever they want
Swing a broom, bat them out
And they'll have whatever they want
Trash can lids aren't shields enough
And they'll come whenever they want
At quiet times, times for us
and they'll come whenever they want

    General CommentI think this song describes that kind of disassociation that comes when you are in a not so compatible relationship(s) but cannot get out. The duality of the body and the soul meaning the two parts of her that she has lived in and out of and she can switch back and forth between the two but this person does not bring out the "whole" of her, they force her to have to choose one or the other. The "ghost" can even be damages of the girl she used to be that she was trying to get over, and this person has brought all of her bad tendencies back again.

    "And I get the strangest feeling
    When I float up to the ceiling
    All the blubbering and moans come
    From my body down below"

    to me this most obviously represent the numbness of sex with someone she doesn't love where her mind and heart isn't in it, but it could also mean just her general habit of not being present while she is with this person (or mundane people in society). She realizes people need to be connected to others "twos, pairs" and does feel the loneliness, but isn't sure what to do about it. "they'll come in twos" "they'll take whatever they want" -society's expectation of people being connected and having relations (relationships, etc) is so strong that they will try to force her to be happy in one, and they can try but she may not listen to them "swing a broom, bat them out" because they don't understand how things are more complex and happiness isn't something that can be easily solved that way.

    General Comment"they'll have whatever they want" can more accurately describe passiveness and general acceptance in a situation where there shouldn't be, kind of a resignation to something that isn't good for you. Often when you come out of these situations you begin to feel alive again because your life can be opened up to passion rather than passivity. I have similar themes to this in a song i wrote called Acquiescence.
