Ghost Stories

Filthy Mind

Love is gone.
My tv's on I'm hanging with the boys.
A life with fools this world is cruel.
We never dispense with toys.
Could you make a suggestion for an act I would enjoy.
I'm drowning. So come inside.
Welcome to my filthy mind.
I'm drowning. So come inside.
Welcome to my filthy mind.
My fingers are burnt.
Forgot what I learnt.
I'll never be a satisfied.
Become a recluse. Enjoy the abuse.
It's better to just get high.
Now I feel like a baby who has just opened its eyes.
I'm drowning. So come inside.
Welcome to my filthy mind.
I'm drowning. So come inside.
Welcome to my filthy mind.
Now I feel like a baby who has just opened its eyes.
I'm drowning. So come inside.
Welcome to my filthy mind.
I'm drowning. So come inside.
Welcome to my filthy mind.
Welcome to my filthy mind.

Idol

I can see it. I can feel it rushing in my veins.
I don't like it. I don't hide it.
See it in my face.
But I don't want to wait for I have lost my faith.
Why can't I find myself an idol?
Somebody that I can look up to.
Be big enough to hold me close in their arms and never let me down.
and all these stupid conversations
that always seem to lead to nowhere.
They're going round and round and round in my head.
And they'll be back again.
They're coming back again.
It's not fair how I still care now.
We're always alone.
Honesty and modesty will never find my home.
But I will never say when I have lost my way.
You take it, you take it, and throw it away.
Why can't I find myself an idol?
Somebody that I can look up to.
Be big enough to hold me close in their arms and never let me down.
and all these stupid conversations
that always seem to lead to nowhere.
They're going round and round and round in my head.
And they'll be back again.
They're coming back again.
You take it, you take it, and throw it away.
But I will never say when I have lost my way.
Why can't I find myself an idol?
Somebody that I can look up to.
Be big enough to hold me close in their arms and never let me down.
and all these stupid conversations
that always seem to lead to nowhere.
They're going round and round and round in my head.
And they'll be back again.
They're coming back again.
You take it, you take it, and throw it away.
You take it, you take it, and throw it away.

Glory Girl

I heard a song today, reminded me of Spain.
We were the innocent in springtime.
I never liked you much.
We never keep in touch.
I know your stories from the grapevine
and though I find it strange to watch the change
when what you couldn't say was look at me, look at me,
My glory, glory girl.
Help me to find a way to know you let's show the world.
My glory, glory girl.
Hide not behind the words that bind you
You don't owe the world my glory girl.
Let's show the world.
I heard you say today you've thrown your life away
but dreams of happiness aren't wasted.
You tried to reach the moon
you grew up too soon
denied the freedom that you tasted.
But all your tragedy now helps me discover you.
My glory, glory girl.
Help me to find a way to know you let's show the world.
My glory, glory girl.
Hide not behind the words that bind you
You don't owe the world my glory girl.
Let's show the world.
My glory girl, let's show the world
My glory, glory girl.
Help me to find a way to love you let's show the world.
My glory, glory girl.
Hide not behind the words that bind you
You don't owe the world my glory girl.
Let's show the world. Let's show the world
My glory girl, let's show the world.

The Wrong Man

In my life
In my life
Perfect is tonight.
It's opened up to find.
No matter what I say you're a substitute for my pride.
It's terrible to see a new accessory
no matter what I say you're just filling a void in me.
But it's better to know the girl inside.
You're always running towards the needs that you recognize.
Well it's better to leave the love behind
'cause you're the wrong man at the wrong time in my life, in my life.
You don't. You don't. You won't.
You won't belong.
Wasted is today.
Another pill to take.
I know the hate is equal to the love we make.
To you I don't belong when the trust has gone.
I know the games we play aren't fooling anyone
Well it's better to know the girl inside
Your always running towards the needs that you leave behind
'cause you're the wrong man at the wrong time in my life, in my life
you don't. You don't. You won't.
You won't belong.
you don't. You don't. You won't.
You won't belong, belong, belong, belong
you don't. You don't. You won't.
You won't belong, belong, belong, belong

Cellophane

And I try, and I try and I try
Nobody moves me
I've been through this life with no place that I can call my own.
Thinking above me
I never seem to find anybody that can feel like home
and I try and I try and I try and I try.
Funny how it feels when there's nothing to say.
Trapped with my ideals
I can't contain I'm wrapped in cellophane.
And it knows my name
Nobody told me obsessive needs
were always following me around
and you can't ignore me.
Look at my face
and then tell me my place in town
and he's in and she's in and he's in and she's in
Funny how it feels when there's nothing to say.
Trapped with my ideals
I can't contain I'm wrapped in cellophane. I'm wrapped in cellophane
And it knows my name
and I try and I try and I try
and I try and I try and I try
and he's in and she's in and he's in and she's in.
and he's in and she's in
Funny how it feels when there's nothing to say.
I'm wrapped in cellophane

Blind Man

It must be wonderful to think you know it all.
It must be beautiful to really believe in you.
But I am constantly waiting.
I'm looking for your soul.
I am constantly praying.
I've come looking for you, looking for you.
Blind man you do what you can.
You do what you can to be superman.
Blind man I'll do what I can.
I'll do what I can to make you believe.
You must be thrilled to bits
the happy hypocrite
and when you're out of it the whole world is with you too.
But I am constantly waiting.
I'm looking for your soul.
I am constantly praying.
I've come looking for you, looking for you.
Blind man you do what you can.
You do what you can to be superman.
Blind man I'll do what I can.
I'll do what I can to make you believe.
To make you see
But I am constantly waiting.
I'm looking for your soul.
I am constantly praying.
I've come looking for you, looking for you.
Blind man you do what you can.
You do what you can to be superman.
Blind man I'll do what I can.
I'll do what I can to make you believe.
To make you see
I'll make you believe

Silver Lining

Drawn to the violence of change
Charmed by the sentimental brave
I hear the door slam, I look the other way
I hate the small talk, and the empty day

Silver Lining, I bathe in your light
I'll always believe in your place in my life
Silver Lining, I know that I'm right,
I'll always believe in, your right to shine

Scared of the things that people say
Knowing my confidence might fade
I feel the world's weight, upon my breaking back
I see uncertainty, and the visible crack

Silver Lining, I bathe in your light
I'll always believe in, your place in my life.
Silver Lining, I know that I'm right
I'll always believe in, your right to shine.

Silver Lining, I bathe in your light
I'll always believe in, your place in my life.
Silver Lining, I know that I'm right
I'll always believe in, your right to shine.

Empty

This shallow need to feel wanted.
Worshipped and adored and never be ignored.
I give you love but you don't see it.
You never understand my world is in your hands.
I have this thought in my head and it's about being noticed.
I have this thought in my head and it's about being noticed
(we hide away) somebody stop me feeling empty
(we hide away) somebody stop me feeling empty.
You start this dance but I'm leading.
I act out the abused, bewildered and confused.
Oh, tonight I'm yours but I don't feel it.
You say it's all a game but one can only play.
I have this thought in my head and it's about being noticed.
I have this thought in my head and it's about being noticed
(we hide away)
(we hide away)
(we hide away) somebody stop me feeling empty
(we hide away) somebody stop me feeling empty
I have this thought in my head and it's about being noticed.
(we hide away) somebody stop me feeling empty
(we hide away) somebody stop me feeling empty

A Child Believes

I don't remember when I got cold
it was when he would lay into me
Told that your worthless from five years old.
Is it part of your destiny.
He's standing next to me.
I cannot breath.
When will I have the guts to leave?
Runaway from all that is sacred
Escaping the shadows over me.
Run away.
You'll never make it.
It's all that a child believes.
I don't remember when I felt warm.
I was never quite good enough.
I only wanted the simple things
like being told you were loved
he's still supporting me but where's the faith.
Looking in his eyes I sense his hate
Runaway from all that is sacred
Escaping the shadows over me.
Run away.
Runaway from all that is sacred
Escaping the shadows over me.
Run away.
You'll never make it.
It's all that a child believes
I never cry for sadness.
I cut off from the pain.
I won't forget your madness
but I'll forgive you anyway.
but I'll forgive you anyway
He's standing next to me.
I cannot breath.
When will I have the guts to leave.
Runaway from all that is sacred
Escaping the shadows over me.
Run away
You'll never make it.
It's all that a child believes

Numb

I didn't notice you.
Didn't have a point of view.
All the things that mattered then
only really hit me when I saw that inside you were scared.
lying on a bed of nails
build me up to watch me fail
all the ones that went before
never really wanted more than you were not willing to give.
I'm falling down, can't see the truth.
I know the hell that you've been through.
I'm falling out of love with you
but I'll find defenses,
I'll try to care less.
Won't someone help me feel numb, numb.
Felt the sting of acid rain.
Sweet messiah come again
sitting on my pedestal.
I never really felt at all that I'm the same person as you.
I'm falling down, can't see the truth.
I know the hell that you've been through
I'm walking side by side with you
but I'll find defenses
I'll try to care less
Won't someone help me feel numb, numb
I'll find defenses
I'll try to care less
Won't someone help me feel numb, numb, numb
