From the album The Immigrant

Lyrics

The Ghost

I was a ghost
sleeping in the walls
hiding behind bedposts
lost in vapid halls
cold and pale
trying to keep sane
learning to prevail
against my own brain

I never fully appeared
cause all the kids thought I was weird

so i polished off the clocks
and set them all to chime
and waited at the docks
while they sang at the same time

so I made all of the beds
and dusted all the chairs
I got it in my head
that maybe someone would care

I never fully appeared
cause all the kids thought I was weird x2

held my breath in corners
trying to be brave
watching while they mourned her
a girl that could be saved

kissing all her pictures
wishing she'd survived
reading lines from scripture
like they did when she was alive

and i never shed a tear
cause death was all I had feared
no I never fully appeared
cause all the kids thought I was weird
