Holy Ghost

we stayed up all night talking
just to understand
what goes on when you’re sleep walking
what goes through your head
because you say you don’t remember
you were walking through the walls
and like a ghost your heart is ancient
but your mind just can’t recall
so cover yourself in a long white sheet
and cut two holes for your eyes
your spirit weeps when your mouth declares
that this life is just to die

you will not survive the cost of life
you’ll be buried in the ground
or burned into tiny ashes
and swept across the land
but what matters is bound to show somewhere
your blood will soon transform
into another form of life
you don’t leave you just return
so cover yourself in a long white sheet
and follow the path to the holy sea
let the water forgive your sins
until your mind is totally emptied

it’s the father, it’s the son, it’s the holy ghost
this is what I have feared the most
it’s the father, it’s the son, it’s the holy ghost
this is what I have feared the most
this is joy, this is pain, this is relentless
this is stating the obvious
this is joy, this is pain, this is relentless
this is stating the obvious
