about

Ghost Pal Brooklyn, New York

Ghost Pal is a paranoid, psychedelic soul band from Brooklyn, NY. Having expanded and contracted for the better part of a year as a psychedelic and occasionally psychotic collective, Ghost Pal hardened into a 7 member line up in late 2011. Look out for our EP "Extended Family," dropping on May 15, and our LP "Nathan Jones is Dead," coming in the summer. ... more

Track Name: Just Got Punched in the Face by Schmee & the Bad Boys
WOOOOOAAAHHHH
Joe Tex!
and Leon Trotsky
they're not the evil ones!

There'll be time when dust meets dusk and
If there's a sky in blue
I'll know it's only you
With no soldiers to pull you through
Track Name: Sleep/Whatever
It's cool to meet a ghost!
But I'l go mad if I chase them
It's good to be the most
But I'll be dead when they gauge it
Sometime, I had some friends
Had my wagon, but then I lost it
It's right to see the end
But I won't stay, cause I'm exhausted

Oh, I was sitting down on the block that I walked
The rain was pouring down and it can't ever stop
I looked into a mirror that was passing me by
I saw that it was breaking and I wanted to cry
Yeah I need to rest my heart!

It's fine to lead your friends
Set an example, but I don't know it
It's right to blow your mind
But I'll turn off the moment that I turn on

Oh, I was sitting down on the block that I walked
The rain was pouring down and it can't ever stop
I looked into a mirror that was passing me by
I saw that it was breaking and I wanted to cry
Now where can someone go when they can't even sleep?
There's nothing to turn off and there's nothing to keep
Yeah I am surely dying and I don't have much time
And I need to make sure that I'm watching the signs
Yeah I need to rest my start!

And now it's dark and I'm asleep
While everybody out there has fun
I wish, I wish, I really really wish
I really really wish I'd have some
Track Name: God Save Mama Coco's
three o'clock in the morning
though i've spent hours yawning
i can't fade into the night
my face is filled with abrasions
from last night's operations
and i'm scoring for a fight

and when my body's breaking
i know jah protect i
and god save mama coco's
before we starve
or give up the fight

i know someone's always crying
and someone's always sighing
we learn this from the blues
and now somebody's calling
they wonder why i'm stalling
i can't finish paying these dues

and when my body's breaking
i know jah protect i
and god save mama coco's
before we starve
or give up the fight

when money's tight
we'll have music
just to keep us in holy flame
when we can't talk
we'll be laughing
at the fact that nobody came
and when it's dark
i'll be waiting
for all my friends to join

and i'll be good
i'll be a deaf, dumb, short-tongued mama's boy like i should
that's alright
you'll be fine
and i'll be cool
i'll be nothing, anything like the guy i was at school
he'll be fine
his world is mine
and when i was a child
i didn't have to worry about who i really wanna be
that's alright
give up the fight
you'll be fine
the world is mine

and when my body's breaking
i know jah protect i
and god save mama coco's
before we starve
Track Name: Everyone Knows
Where the time goes, somewhere I don't know
But down here it passes so slow
I've been wondering how to cross the stream
But I just have to go slow
I could wait for a thousand years, right here
I'll let the waves crash on me
Which way to go, somewhere I don't know
I'll walk it blindly

Everyone knows just how it goes
But I still have these questions
Everyone claims it's just a game
But I can't stand these tensions
I've driven past the door
I was holding out for more

All these questions, mounting tensions
If I could just get some sleep I
Know I'd do right, know I'd see right
When I'm always guessing

Everyone knows just how it goes
But I still have these questions
Everyone claims it's just a game
But I can't stand these tensions
I've driven past the door
I was holding out for more
I, swallowing my pain
I didn't know my name
Track Name: Raja's Song (Hold on My King)
When we were young we didn't know
We didn't know what we were doing
Oh, I didn't know how fast you were moving
And you were slowly slipping away
I did all the things that I wanted
I wanted to be stronger
Oh I wish it had been longer
Just getting to the point of today

Now you got to go and leave me standing
I've got so much growing to do
Without you
I know it's true

But I still love you
No matter what they say
I will love you
Through every single day

I promised I'd be there
I promised I'd be with you
Oh, lying on the bed in summer
You got me through my bummers alone
Then I had to go on my own
I knew I couldn't stay there
Oh, I'm sure that you would just lay there
Just wishing for the time I'd come home

Now what does it do to stand here crying?
It won't help us see you through
And there's still years
For all my guilty tears

But I still love you
No matter what they say
I will love you
Through every single day
Can you forgive me
For how I let you down?
Will you stay with me
Although I'm stuck on the ground?

Hold on my king
And if you're in too much pain
I know that you'll be happy again
