"Chasing Ghosts With Alcohol" as written by Benjamin Joseph Ottewell, Ian Thomas Ball, Paul Blackburn, Oliver James Peacock and Thomas William Gray....
Well it's been more than a year
Since I lived by the sea
And though we both have been moving
You came back to me

And I remember the old signs
We threw off the pier
They've been burning forgotten
Their scent disappear

Take one day of my lifestyle
Passing ghosts in a street
I chase them away with alcohol
But they don't get drunk

The ghosts around your city
Have all got my name

I wondered how I'm glowing
I wondered why I'm glowing
I wondered how I'm glowing
I wondered why I'm going

    General CommentI'll take a stab at this one-

    I think that by "ghosts" he means all the people and problems in his life, both the good and the bad. Now, he is reminiscing about these people, and how his problem with alcohol secluded him from these things. By "I wondered why I'm glowing," I think he means theat he lost himself in the process (being a "ghost" himself). Some of the lyrics may prove contrary, so this is just a thought. Overall, though, no matter what the lyrics mean, this is still a killer song!
