"The Ghost Inside" as written by and Brian Joseph Burton James Mercer....
She sold her love to a modern man
Cause solid currency's the hardest to love
All other modern hells you cover your eye
Don't let the lady finger blow in your hat
Di-di-da

Feel like a daughter
She's a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up
The ghost inside

This gives some matter to shaking her hide
Too late to leave him' are the songs in her car
Di-di-da

Feel like a daughter
She's a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up
The ghost inside

They call it chivalry
Never pull a punch for free
You ever wonder why they had to move on
This phony article
That put you on the floor
A double standard
You envoke when you want

Feel like a daughter
She's a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up
The ghost inside

Was it all for show?
To turn into all of them
Turning a page
Trust me darlin'
I'm carving 'em up through the dust in your town
Crawling over rubble, just to sound me out
Tend to wonder why?

    General CommentI believe in the verse:

    "Feel like a daughter
    She's like a star tonight
    Without wanting
    She gave up
    The ghost inside"

    It's actually with "without a warning" rather than "without wanting." I think. They're so hard to understand sometimes haha.
