"Ghost Trail" as written by and Billy Duffy Ian Astbury....
Ashes and ghosts are all around me, yeah on
On the night of the assassins, they came, and I was ready

Do you believe?
Oh, yeah
Do you believe?

I look around the world and see
The winged waifs powdered on petal dust
I can't believe the sorcerer's dream has come
And never chosen one of us

All around, the atoms raging
I can see your magic's failing
I do believe they're gonna get you
I do believe, can't cast a spell on me

Ashes and ghosts are all around me
I don't believe in what you're saying, no, no, no, no
Ashes and ghosts, they fill my heart
Can't cast a spell on me

Ashes and ghosts are all around me
You broke the truth and now you're fading
Ashes and ghosts, they fill my heart
You're a fake, yeah, you're a fraud

The assassin's hand has planned
To pull the wings off every one of us, yeah
Cracked fairy head's are spinning down
The blood shot eyes, nostrils flared at us

All around, the atoms raging
I can see your magic's failing
I do believe they're gonna get you
I do believe, can't cast a spell on me

Ashes and ghosts are all around me
I don't believe in what you're saying, no, no, no, no
Ashes and ghosts, they fill my heart
Can't cast a spell on me

Ashes and ghosts are all around me
You broke the truth and now you're fading
Ashes and ghosts, they fill my heart
You're a dog, you're a fake, you're a fraud

Can't cast a spell on me

Ashes and ghosts are all around me
I don't believe in what you're saying, whoa, oh-oh
Ashes and ghosts, they fill my heart
Can't cast a spell on me

Ashes and ghosts are all around me
You broke the truth and now you're fading
Ashes and ghosts, they fill my heart
You're fading, yeah, you're fading, fading

Don't believe in what you're saying
Can't cast a spell on me, oh-whoa, no, no, no, no
You broke the truth and now you're fading
Yeah, you're fading, yeah, you're fading, yeah, you're fading

    General Commenti dont have a fucking clue how to interpet this or make it relevant to anything in my own life but this song just gives me fucking chills, here is the kind of image it gives to me when i listen to it: it sounds like a nightmare of walking deep in a forest away from a beach and being hunted down by some dark presence (but rather than it chasing you, you are actually moving towards it) not knowing the way out but only merging with the forest and the shadows... getting in thicker and thicker and slow in the undergrowth, seeing shapes in the dark. then the guitar solo comes on and its like the presence of god appears and the light makes you go blind for a second, then open your eyes and everything is covered in holy fire and you have been saved from whatever has been hiding its true form, as everything is now bathed in light. everything calms down for a moment and you breathe easy and feel that there is no one following anymore and hear the sound of rushing water, you go down a slope of dry ground to a clearing as night settles again... but then the end bit comes on and a big fucking owl demon made out of fire and ancient ruins starts tearing through the forest, then you start running as it rampages behind... you make it back to the clearing of the beach and you turn around and there is nothing there, you might have imagined the whole thing but you think that you see a cloud of dust just settling back into the ground. FUCK this song scares me but i love it...
