I'm dead
I died long ago but my spirit still roams (Incorporeal)
Unwanted in heaven, forgotten in hell as on earth (Incorporeal)
I don't want to stay here, it seams that I'll never be free
Oh can you hear me? (no)

And so
It has come to be that I must wander forever (Incorporeal)
Many things I have seen, empires that rise and then fall (Incorporeal)
A life you live long is simply a moment to me
A tiny drop of water in the sea of eternity

There's no place for me everywhere that I go
Only seems to bring upset and harm
There's one thing that I want and one thing only
Release into the great beyond
Don't want to remember when I was alive
When I held my true love in my arms
For like you I once was, and like me you shall be

When you
Feel a chill in the night perhaps it's me saying hello (Incorporeal)
You're so much like my love though she lived in a long ago time (Incorporeal)
I long to see her for the day when my soul's laid to rest
The peace that I can not find in life, I can find in death

    General CommentActually Nick said that he was reading through something (possibly lovecraft for all I can remember) and came across the word incorporeal. He pretty much just made a story about this ghost and his experiences as one. I don't really think this song is meant to be interepreted, but meant to be taken at face value: a ghost story and such.

    People can write from a surrealist point of view, and not everything has to be from the point of view or experiences of the actual writer. I do it all the time if I ever write things. Writing from the perspective of a character or thing that has nothing to really do with yourself really.

    General CommentThis song is way to above others, ´cause this talk about truth when you fall in deep depresion, you dont want to stay here, and you feel like the only peace you can have it´s only being death, pretty good song.

    General CommentThis song is great. Probably one of my favourites from Tiger Army. I think this song is talking about how someone can't take it anymore and just wants to die. Maybe someone feeling left out. I dunno.

    General CommentI think its definitely about someone that has died but has not gone to heaven or hell, they are stuck here on earth as a ghost or whatnot... they have been stuck like this for a long time and just want to be released into the afterlife.
