I am a prince I have it all
I hear your footsteps through the wall
I wait in silence for your call
Then take a shot and watch you fall

I am a ghost but I cannot fly
I'm stuck here as the years slide by
I need a resting place 'cause I
Already felt my body die

If I had a host of ghosts
Living on my street
I'd jive and strive to stay alive
And offer them some meat

I need a different life I think
Perhaps I'd be the missing link
And treasure moments as I drink
Away the memories let the sink

    great song, these lyrics are kind of incomplete though. as to its meanings, it's phish, so make what you want of it.. it's yours for the interpreting.
