"Not Just A Ghost's Heart" as written by and Jason Molina....
After all this work she's still built to sail
The curve of the whole coast her curve's the whole coast
How she could read the map showing only the sea
Only empty houses (empty houses)
Are we still able, at night to watch

With human heart's at all
With human heart's at all

How she could read the map showing only the bells
How she could read the map showing only the bells
She's still able, at night to watch

With a human heart
With a human heart

Not just a ghost's heart
Not just a ghost's heart
Not just a ghost's heart
Not just a ghost's heart

    General CommentHiding from the one you love. Hiding all your darkness away from her. Sorrowfully catching hidden glimpses of something you want to be a part of, emphasised in the constant wonder of Molina's almost dumbfounded questioning. Wondering how she can "read the map" showing only that barren, empty sea, see anything worthwhile in "only empty houses". And all this reflected in that half ruptured opening chord, and continued in the deep, baleful chugging.

    Above all else, as mentioned, despite all the recognition of loathing, you can't look away. Her curve is the whole coast. Human and magnificent.
