about

The continued explorations of Ghost Pal. Not chronological. But by the time the dust had settled, we knew who we are. And we were on our way to the great emancipator, "NATHAN JONES IS DEAD"!

Track Name: Akhenaten
mmmm
they killed their king
they killed their king
laid him out in the sunshine
and everything shone around him like he was new
they killed their king
they killed their king
i don't have to find out
cause everybody is telling me what i'm gonna do
though i'm afraid
and i get so tired

can't shake the shake, no
can't shake the shake, no
no matter where i go
can't shake the shake, no
they killed their king
they killed their king
my only weapon is my
my only weapon is my
my only weapon is my sword in my left hand
though i'm afraid
and i get so tired

dun dun dun
they killed their king
they killed their king
they killed their king
they killed their king
though i'm afraid
and i get so tired
something will change
and i'll be happy
Track Name: Retribution
how the people always stood there
always laid there on the ground
but i am climbing to a higher spot
and i will never come down
til the sun resists my eyes, my cries round

white moon and the shadow's brother
and it's already out tonight
i live in a shadow's basement
all out trembling with fright
second sight, set alight, make it right
all out trembling with fright

we were always going down paths
but there's a down cast, cast time
we were always going down
but the end is always hard, round

white moon and the shadow's brother
and it's already out tonight
i holed up inside my basement
all out trembling with fright
second sight, set alight, make it right
all out trembling with fright

yeah, the devil
aw, the devil is around
oh, the devil
yeah, the devil will take you down!

you were always such a liar
to get you higher, well come down
now the devil's gonna find you
he's gonna take you underground
retribution is the dark
Track Name: Ghost Teen
if you chose living over my ways
i'd understand
for hundreds of years i've been waiting on the sand
the sky is staring into a horrible abyss
and staring at the sky is connecting with this

the first time i cast my sight on
your sunkissed hair
been such a long time since i tasted air
and though i knew i could not join you in breath
and it'd be so wrong to try to tempt you to death

i loved you on sight
you made me feel bright
i gave you a fright

before too long you could see me
i'd manifested a form
but you could not touch me so i'm never warm
and when your father saw you kissing the air
he had you committed though it was not fair

i loved you on sight
you made me feel bright
but dead love isn't right

my vengeance is fierce, runs cold like the winter
i'll use it to turn the world upside down
and i'll rip the sound out of everyone's ears
til all you can hear is my terrible silence
Track Name: Scared of Bears
a certain witch in a fabled tree
and i won't go, i won't go
i'm so scared so, scared so
of the pox that she might lay on me and
a pile of rocks where the trail goes south
but it won't mark, it won't mark
where the trail's dark, the trail's dark
and we're scared of what comes out of our mouths

and it's lightning like we've never seen
lightning like we've never seen
lightning like we've never seen
up high!

and up ahead is a sullen cliff
where the trail stops, the trail stops
it's a steep drop, steep drop
yeah we float above, we don't mind our lungs and
we join the hawks in a violent game
and we all moan, we all moan
to the unknown, the unknown
and we try to show the hawks the same

and it's lightning like we've never seen
lightning like we've never seen
lightning like we've never seen
up high!

but now the city's old and so dull
i don't believe that we'll recover
the mountain makes a cull

and up ahead i think i see a bear!
it's the third time, third time
it's a steep climb, steep climb
yeah we stare ahead, we can't meet his eyes

and it's lightning like we've never seen
lightning like we've never seen
lightning like we've never seen
in his eyes!
Track Name: I'll Shake Stuff That Rattles
i mean i'll shake stuff that rattles
and i will box the things that ring
bells and things

i mean marching goes in cycles
the darkness won't be shown the light
singing sand
singing sand

i know this road has a mirror
and that taking that one won't seem lost
hear the ghost
see him moan
singing sand

you can't try it before you buy it
you can't level the course inside it
you can't murder me on the fire
i am the sea
Track Name: Brother Music
now that you've fallen in
to holes you should not go
it's time that you tuned into
the only thing we know
when the beat drops in
and you lose your mind
ecstatic communion won't be far behind!

see how the river flows
you watch the rhythm build
a stream of passing tones
and now your heart is filled
though the darkness lurks
and the joy's dispersed
the music returns you to who you were first!

it's getting plain to see
this world's not made for kids like you and me
but we won't let go
rocket well met and thy will be done!
when the chords are ringing and the bass has fun
will i
do my part when my brother is down
and he is wearing a frown
to guide him into the sound
where the music can heal his love

and i awaited somebody
to teach me how to see
but nobody came to me
except the middle c
help me reconnect!
help me astral project!
i wanna believe in the cause and effect

it's getting plain to see
this world's not made for kids like you and me
but we won't let go
rocket well met and thy will be done!
when the chords are ringing and the bass has fun
will i
do my part when my brother is down
and he is wearing a frown
to guide him into the sound
where the music can heal his love

if i could give myself up to the song
i would not be this way myself for long
a shiver passed right through me when you sang
and i could commune with god and everythang
la la la la la la la la
Track Name: A Christmas Gift for You from Ghost Pal & Waldo Cros
Christmas eve was rolling
My grandpa extolling
In his midnight toast
I and my cousins
Excited and buzzing
Over pot-luck roast
Oh, who would get the most?
I'm not impatient
I'll stay with my relations
But can we go home?
Can we just go home?

I love those winter hours
The grownups drink whiskey sours
Bring the singers in with the Christmas carols

Counting sheep in the meadow
But the frost bit the trees
With that said, I still wish there was snow in my bed
In the sky I heard sleigh bells
And that's why I believe
Could it be the truth? I hear somebody up on the roof

Cookies gone along with the milk
We hope he got home safely
My stocking's full and I hope there's no coal
My mom says "Don't be hasty"
I feel her love embrace me

I love those winter hours
The grownups drink whiskey sours
Bring the singers in with the Christmas carols

The stocking's filled up with novelty gifts
And they don't even phase me
Tearing wrappers on all that's left
Oh look wat Ozzie gave me!
Oh look what Grandee gave me!
Oh look what Nana gave me!
Oh look what Poppy gave me!
Oh look what-

The morning after
I'm coming down
No more gifts, no more robes
No more coco on the stove
I regret peeking
There's no surprise
Playing dumb, feeling numb
If I'd only played it slow
I'm not ungrateful
Everyone's home
But it's done, feeling low
I'll go play on my radio
Track Name: Get Thee Gone
stranded out in the night
no light to be found
the rain came pouring down
and made my clothes so soggy
hangin' out by the water
a red and black canal
tried to run from the dark
but it was in my body!

get thee gone, oh get thee gone
get thee gone you impermanent one
get thee gone, you're the devil's son
and you told everybody!

and she smiles from your window
if i could only meet her there
and you gotta be somebody!
you and your kind
don't call in broken
you know you still have time

my blood went into the soil
my sweat poured out on the sand
i sold my soul to the world
along with everybody!

get thee gone, oh get thee gone
get thee gone you impermanent one
get thee gone, you're the devil's son
why won't you leave my body?

you're a rat!
you broke your mother's back
and you tied her to the track
and we don't want you to join us!
woah, woah, you're a rat!
you broke your mother's back
and you tied her to the track
and we all want you to

get thee gone, oh get thee gone
get thee gone you impermanent one
get thee gone, you're the devil's son
and you told everybody!

get thee gone, oh get thee gone
get thee gone you impermanent one
get thee gone, you're the devil's son
why won't you leave my body?

and you gotta be somebody
and you don't have time
call on your forces
and how they know you're kind
