"Headful of Ghosts" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
I stand around at American weddings
I stand around for family
At my best when I'm terrorist inside
At my best when it's all me

I was there when they took all the people
I was alone in a mental ravine
You breathe life when you break the walls down
You breathe life when you set me free

Where is my head?
Where are my bones?
Why are my days so far from home?
Where is my head?
Where are my bones?
Can you save me from myself?

Can you save me from myself?

Free-thinking renegade social
Mister Moon Man now
Out of the slipstream of my possibilities
Got the boat so we don't drown

These are the days that I'm split down the middle
No words to calm me down
Be sure that what you dream of
Won't come to hunt you down

Where is my head?
Where are my bones?
Why are my days so far from home?
Ghostman
Where is my head?
Where are my bones?
How come we get so lost?
Ghostman
Ghostman

Where is my head?
Where are my bones?
Can you save me from myself?
Ghostman

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me. I think because I want someone to save me from myself. I do a lot of shit I shouldn't but no one tries to stop me .... I don't care much for myself.

    General Commentgeez.. . . whats up your ass stellartunning? can't the guy make a simple comment? and i agree, bush is grunge, and what makes nirvana so fucking great? i like nirvana, they are a good band, talented, but i think that they are highly overrated. i hate to say this, but if kurt wasn't dead, i don't think they would be so popualr, unfortunately. okay there was my thoughts. please don't reply by calling me a bitch and all that shit, im just stating my opinion like everyone else

    General CommentI think the narrator is the ghost; he's dead and reflecting on his new existence vs his old one.

    General CommentI think it's about feeling distant and away from home, whether it be a physical plane such as a place or mentally. You feel lost where you're not and it's starting to really bug and get to you. The ghost is the memory of what home and your comfort zone was and you're asking it to help you feel that way again.
