Ghosts Lyrics

The moon holds the light
And the moon's this spinning globe
Shedding light upon the road
The bird won't fly
And a bird without its wings is a low and tragic thing

We are ghosts
We are ghosts amongst these hills
From the trees of velvet green
To the ground beneath our feet
We are ghosts
We are ghosts amongst these hills
Pressing out along the shore
Pressing out along the shore The mountain song
That is now the thoughts of thirds
And it's only to be heard
And though I'm gone
I will come again in spring
When the harvest can begin

We are ghosts
We are ghosts amongst these hills
From the trees of velvet green
To the ground beneath our feet
We are ghosts
We are ghosts amongst these hills
Pressing out along the shore
Pressing out along the shore

Thoughts & Meanings

This song is about someone who has finally realised that they are inconsequential to the world they live in, and I have inferred this from the line "we are ghosts amongst these hills". The hills mentioned in the same line are a metaphor for the troubles of the singer. I also believe that the line "a bird without it's wings is a low and a tragic thing" is linked to my earlier thoughts as they cannot effect their situation, or escape it, much like a grounded bird. "The mountain song" is the sounds of the world around them, and the animalistsic feelings that the singer seems to be feeling. So, to summarise everything above (James) feels much like a caged animal, who has no power over it's fate, and cannot escape it's destiny, or the bars that it is held behind.
