"The Ghost You Are" as written by and Justin Valenti Timothy Costello....
Let's paint her chalk white
See if she reacts
To the colors I admire
All the details
She flirts out freely
All the details
Die completely

Scream
Bury a whisper inside your room
Caught in a spin towards you
When things could be different
If your hands adapted me
For some southern reason
I don't see us happening

Let's paint him jet black
See if he jumps back
And loosens up the colors in his skin
All the details
She flirts out freely
All the details
Die completely

Scream
Bury a whisper inside your room
Caught in a spin towards you
When things could be different
If your hands adapted me
For some southern reason
I don't see us happening

Lean into me
And I'll lean back into you

Bury a whisper inside your room
Caught in a spin towards you

It's easy to operate
It's easy to understand
It's easy to be that way
When you've got the upper hand

Stay right where I think you are
Running out of step
Running towards your car
Walking through walls like the ghost you are
As conscious as a mistake
As simple just to
Simple just to fake

    General CommentThe lyrics are totally off... its BLURTS out freely, not FLIRTS. its BARELY a whisper, not BURY... no offense... they got it pretty close. i just love this band to much to let that go unchanged

    General CommentThis song is awesome :). I'm guessing it's about a interacial relationship. Good subject.

    General Commentthis song doesn't necessarily have to be about an interracial relationship. i think it's about how 'opposites attract' (black vs. white) and in this case, maybe isn't working out (for some southern reason / i dont see us happening).
