Text - Giving up the ghost

  • Giving up the ghost


    Icy road, blinding dark
    Rolling hills in the distance
    Open wound, painful scar
    Love has left its burning trademark
    Off the grid, out of bounds
    Further down into shadow
    Darkest day and whitest night
    In harm’s way
    We’re chasing rainbows


    Giving up the ghost
    Giving up the ghost
    That’s what hurts the most


    You sever all my heads
    You place them on your bed
    Some part of your great scheme
    To vow me into silence


    Giving up the ghost
    Giving up the ghost
    That’s what hurt the most


    Frozen lake soon will flow
    Frozen ground soon to follow
    But hey – everything is in your head
    And what you killed is never dead


    Giving up the ghost
    Giving up the ghost
    On what you loved the most


    On a coal-black sea, the sky’s on fire
    Failed attempts at a funeral pyre
    Deep as dreams of dark desire
    The flames are growing ever higher


    You sever all my heads
    You place them on your bed
    Some part of your great scheme
    To vow me into silence


    Giving up the ghost
    Giving up the ghost
    That’s what hurt the most
