There are ghosts in every hallway
In every room, behind every door
Peering through every window into the past
Holding onto us in the bitterness of the mire
Leaving a trace of themselves in the spaces in which they hide

...but there are no ghosts here...

There are gods in the wake of every flame
The fire that betroths the coldness of the void
In every wind, every tempest, and every snowfall
In every silence
Inside every root that reaches deep into the soul of the Earth

...but there are no gods here...

Shadows paint the dusk
Ghosts rise from the flames
To set alight the fields
In robes of smoke and spirit aligned

    Song MeaningWhat a wonderfull combination of loneliness in the moment, and hope in the afterlife..
    They seem to depict the ghosts as friendly creatures, who hide themselves just to avoid scaring others.. but always leaving traces of themselves..
    but the singer, he has not even the ghost to keep company to him.. he's even lonelier than one who holds the memory or a ghost of someone.
