    mmm... Ghosty

     

lyrics

Welcome to a new year, of lip said promises
the end is drawing near I said, take the tools and balance it
This is straightforward and unpoetic
my right hand plays the artist and my left hand plays the critic
Your dead cause you dared to dream
now a ghost cause you're caught in between
put words to melody, and let them hear you scream

This is not a party this is revolution
don't drink the punch, its spiked with their illusions
Pray not with hands but with a faith in what you do
and go with speed

Scream these words
We are not ghosts, and we will be heard
Scream these words
We are not ghosts and so, sing
Scream these words
We are not ghosts, we are... we are
I'll sing these words, and I hope you scream yours

Hear the sound, of a two year old ghost as it plays the part alive
so take these words and put them to a melody
so take these hands and put them to action

Take it right off, take it right off
for all the people that have left you for dead, left you here but broken
we are not ghosts, we will be heard
we will never be broken

Scream these words
We are not ghosts, and we will be heard
Scream these words
We are not ghosts and so, sing
Scream these words
We are not ghosts, we are... we are
I'll sing these words, and I hope you scream yours

No rest, and we can take this world
No peace, or they will fuck us all
No rest, and we can take this world
No peace, or they will fuck us all
