[Verse 1]
After I confessed
You said it couldn't happen, no
No, not without a mess
Oh, what's the worst thing that could happen?

[Chorus]
Let me show you my own way!
She said, "Let me love you in my own way"
I said, "I've never hurt like this before. My ghost is yours."
My ghost is yours

[Verse 2]
After I collapsed
You asked me what had happened
I blinked and pointed to the past
You said, "The worst has yet to happen"
Then you undressed

[Chorus]
My own way!
She said, "Let me love you in my own way"
I said, "I've never hurt like this before. My ghost is yours."
My ghost is yours

[Chorus 2]
My own way!
She said, "Let me love you in my own way"
She said, "I've always loved you but I can't stay"
She said, "Let me love you in my own way"
She said, "You look lovely on the floor."
My ghost is yours

[Outro]
She said, "Let me love you"
She said, "Let me love you" (My ghost is yours.)
She said, "Let me love you"
She said, she said
She said, "Let me love you"
She said, "Let me love you"
She said, "Let me love you"
She said, she said
She said, "Let me love you"
She said, "Let me love you"
She said, "Let me love you"
She said, she said

    My InterpretationThis is my favorite song from the album. I think the way it's sung by Havok he sounds very tormented so I am guessing this is about someone being in a relationship with someone who is not exactly who they thought they were when they first got involved with them. I would even go as far as saying, perhaps overtime the person developed a personality disorder (could be drug related or mental illness or brought on by some traumatic life event) and suddenly they've become this other person. After I confessed
    You said it couldn't happen, no
    No, not without a mess
    Oh, what's the worst thing that could happen?
    *this verse points to the confusion, suddenly the person is confessing that they are really someone else or perhaps are confused as to who they even are anymore (a ghost of themselves).
    After I collapsed
    You asked me what had happened
    I blinked and pointed to the past
    You said, "The worst has yet to happen"
    Then you undressed
    *in this verse again it points to the confusion the person is feeling, confessing they don't know what's happened to them and here the person whom they are involved with is apparently accepting them no matter what (then you undressed)
    My own way!
    She said, "Let me love you in my own way"
    I said, "I've never hurt like this before. My ghost is yours."
    My ghost is yours
    *in these verses I think the person whom is involved with this person with the personality disorder is fully embracing them for who they are and saying they'll love them no matter what and will stick by them through this (even though they have become a ghost of themselves).
