They woke me up again;
It's going to be another restless sleep tonight.
The ghosts inside my head
Are moving furniture and eating dynamite.
They're moving furniture and eating dynamite.

Take me up the rill to haunted hill.
Past the floating bridge, the orphanage,
Where the spirits fly and never die.
Where the spirits fly and never die, die, die, die.
Die, Die, Die, Die.

There it's always cold.
Well I've got a fever and I'd like to make it snow.
That's why I feel so old.
All these specters need a better place to go.
All these specters need a better place to go.

We could get a chill on haunted hill,
Where the saddest parts inside my heart,
Can live in the past, leave me at last.
Can live in the past, leave me at last.

Leave me with good will on haunted hill.
Past the floating bridge, the orphanage,
Where the spirits fly and never die.
Where the spirits fly and never die, die, die, die.
Die, Die, Die, Die

Die, Die, Die, Die.

    My Interpretation''They woke me up again;
    It's going to be another restless sleep tonight.
    The ghosts inside my head
    Are moving furniture and eating dynamite.
    They're moving furniture and eating dynamite.''

    Old, persumably bad, memories are consistantly keeping her awake at night, hence the description of 'Ghost' and 'moving furniture' as in awakening things she would rather keep in place and hide.

    ''Take me up the rill to haunted hill.
    Past the floating bridge, the orphanage,''

    Feelings of abandonment or being useless and unwanted(hence the orphanage), or realizing that such magic, such as floating bridges, can never happen...''

    ''Where the spirits fly and never die.
    Where the spirits fly and never die, die, die, die.
    Die, Die, Die, Die.''

    ...seem to have their own realm in her mind. A town of sorts, metaphorically speaking. The spirits of what she wishes to forget live on, and on, and on in this place she's constructed for them.

    ''There it's always cold.
    Well I've got a fever and I'd like to make it snow.
    That's why I feel so old.''

    Visiting said 'town' freezes her insides, makes her feel sick to remember, but sometimes it's nessasary. When you've riled yourself up into a red, hot, vehement ''fever'' of anger you need time to cool down. Though it all does weigh down on you.

    ''All these specters need a better place to go.
    All these specters need a better place to go.''

    She stored everything away in a tiny town in the corner of her mind so not everyone wouldn't have to see her when she's like this.

    ''We could get a chill on haunted hill,
    Where the saddest parts inside my heart,
    Can live in the past, leave me at last.
    Can live in the past, leave me at last.''

    I've heard people call this song 'sad'. Now, I know as so far the melody hasn't been upbeat and the words/meaning all sunshine and daisies, but is it sad? Depends on how you see it. As Tom Waites says - "I like beautiful melodies telling me terrible things." In this case, I like beautiful, yet melancholy, melodies telling me such sweet things.
    Please note the use of 'we'. ''We could get a chill on haunted hill''. The aforementioned place you hide away for the so called good for herself and others she decide to show to another, openly, freely.

    ''Leave me with good will on haunted hill.
    Past the floating bridge, the orphanage,
    Where the spirits fly and never die.
    Where the spirits fly and never die, die, die, die.''

    I think this shows a change of perspective on her hiden away memories - perhaps they don't leave you feeling so foolish anymore?
