"Ghosts of Utopia" as written by and Christopher Corner....
you are haunted by the turmoil of your light
walking circles, crossing lines
and it is tearing up your souls, all this fury.
jumping hurdles, just to abide

you are turning into sorrow with opinions and opinions
nobody can hear you nobody can hear you.
this is psychosis, this is psychosis
this is a jigsaw blown apart

you are the ghosts of utopia
you're the conquered start, the divided hearts.
you are the ghosts of utopia
you're the miracle of america.

every time you learn you don't regret
all your hurting, all your debts (????)
cause the wipe and kiss won't help you to forget
the emergency of your secrets and your trash.

you are turning into sorrow with opinions and opinions
nobody can hear you nobody can hear you
this is psychosis, this is psychosis
this is a jigsaw blown apart

you are the ghost of utopia
you're the conquered start, the divided hearts.
you are the ghosts of utopia,
youre the miracle of america.

    "You are haunted by by the turmoil of your lives
    Walking Circles, Crossing lines..."

    "You are turning in the sorrow of a billion opinions
    Nobody can hear you , nobody can hear you"

    "Every time you learn you don't regret
    all your hurting, all your debts"
    "cause the wipe and kiss won't help you to forget" or "cause the wife and kids won't help you..."?

    "you're the conquered stars/scars?, the divided hearts"

    really an amazing song! cannot wait for the album!-maybe we can find out the real lyrics then. March 18 cannot come soon enough. As for the meaning of the song, for me, it is the anthem of the perfectionist.
    For artists it is very hard to ever be pleased with your work. The conquered stars, ghost of perfection,getting stuck on all the opinions, the divide from reality -psychosis, the miracle of america (the land of opportunities, the new world). Just some thoughts.

    My Interpretationbasically he's talking about a new generation filled with angst, anger, and being driven into madness due to no one listening to them even though they (the system ie republicans and some democrats) should.

    Lyric CorrectionHere's what I hear very clearly. Listened to the studio version as well as a couple live versions.

    "You are haunted by the turmoil of your lives."

    "You are drowing in the sorrow of a billion opinions."

    "You're the conquered stars, the divided heart."

    "All your hurting, all your debts."

    "Because the wife and kids won't help you to forget."

    Lyric Correctionyou are turning into sorrow with opinions and opinions. should be *you are turning sorrow of the belly and opinions* or least something close to that.

    Lyric CorrectionIt's "You are drowning in the sorrow of a billion oppinions" and "the wife and kids", not wipe and kiss :)
