Ghost Ship Lyrics

I remember flashbacks lighting up magic waves
Eight o'clock, saloon emptiness, handle it
The wide old image I had to view 11 seconds ago
I didn't say anything, so you will never know

I got away for a little while
But then it came back much harder

Swinging on the cable line to pull it
Climbing down the ghostly wine in a battery
That light in your eyes, I search for religiously
Oh, when it's not there, oh Lord, it's over me

I got away for a little while
But then it came back much harder

'Til I ever hold you out there again
Will you be mine?
'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
in Hong Kong
It's the last ride boarding here tonight
Out in the bay (out in the bay) I need lantern in you to shine out bright rays
Rat race

Living outta body here, what can I do?
It's up to the doc everyday to join here with you

I had to get away for a little while
But then it came back much harder

'Til I ever hold you out there again
Will you be mine?
'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
in Hong Kong
It's the last ride boarding here tonight
Out in the bay (out in the bay) I need lantern in you to shine out bright rays
Rat race

'Til I ever hold you out there again
Will you be mine?
'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
in Hong Kong
It's the last ride boarding here tonight
Out in the bay (out in the bay) I need lantern in you to shine out bright rays
Rat race
Rat race
Rat race

What is the Meaning of Ghost Ship?

This piece delves into the exploration of a soul's journey through life, employing metaphors of maritime imagery and urban landscapes. The 'ghost ship' symbolizes an individual navigating through life's challenges and uncertainties, while 'Hong Kong' could represent a bustling, overwhelming environment that exacerbates these struggles. The recurring phrase 'I got away for a little while / But then it came back much harder' suggests the cyclical nature of life's tribulations and the difficulty in escaping them. The song also alludes to the longing for companionship ('Will you be mine?') as a beacon of hope amidst this tumultuous journey ('I need lantern in you to shine out bright rays'). Ultimately, "Ghost Ship" portrays life as a relentless 'rat race', emphasizing the importance of resilience and connection in weathering its trials.
