Track Name: I Saw A Ghost (Exclusive Single Mix)
I saw a ghost and I found it strange
That I wasn't nervous and nothing had changed
Centuries of soil stacked up on those bones
When I saw the ghost, I'd never felt so alone

Every time the chaos calls I'm picking up the phone and I'm like, hey man
Come and meet my flower, be the hurricane devouring the peace and release
But I've no fear when I look in that mirror
And I'm wandering around to find the host

I saw a ghost when the moon hit the beach
In my moldy hotel room where the preachers can't teach
And I ran like hell through the friendliest fire
When I saw the ghost painted pale with desire

Every time the chaos calls I'm picking up the phone and I'm like, hey man
Come and meet my flower, be the hurricane devouring the peace and release
But I've no fear when I look in that mirror
And I'm wandering around to find the host

I'm weak in my will I'm damp in the eye
Cause memories aren't killed and ghosts never die
Just be

But I've no fear when I look in that mirror
And I'm wandering around to find the host
The way you looked at me...
The way you took to me...
I've no moral here to boast
Since I saw the ghost
Track Name: Lost In The Woods
The virgin creek washes the blame
The infection of my father's name
Far away from city lights
The dark of night is very bright

Oh the things you gain when there's nothing left to lose
The chances you will take when there's no choice to choose
The places you will go when home is gone for good
Oh the things you find when you're lost in the woods

Sagging sun, behind the trees,
Set beside my memories
Let them fade through evening's end and
Wash around the river bend

Oh the things you gain when there's nothing left to lose
The chances you will take when there's no choice to choose
The places you will go when home is gone for good
Oh the things you find when you're lost in the woods

I'm the far straying branch, stretching since birth
For some sweeter sky towards to roam
I'm digging my roots in alien earth
Cause where I come from is surely not home

The places you will go when home is gone for good
Oh the things you find when you're lost in the woods
