Ghost in the moonlight
Throw your veil upon these grounds
Cold! The night is star-bright
Pale is all beauty of your gown

Dark, frame a fire!
Mystery of a blood red rose
Dark! Shine sapphire!
You won't leave me on my own

Raised my head above the haze
I woke up to a world
I feel almost humanized
Tender loving all around
Apparently profound
Through self-deceitful eyes

Now what am I supposed to be
For sure it can't be me
In orderly array
My, it's feeling so unreal
How daunting to be free
In the light of day

Lost in this world - with no place to go

Awaiting the night to yell a prayer up to the starlight
Veiling boon: Ghost in the moon
Grant me admission tonight
Into your tenebrous wicked star-bright golden gloom:
Ghost in the moon

Whispers sounding from the brake
Sinister eyes along the way
A phantom rushing through the night
Make haste, run from the dawn
Back across the Rubicon
To the shelter from the light

Before the sun is gonna rise
To reflect it in their eyes
A sight no one's gonna stand
Oh your blood is gonna freeze
Different blood: a different breed
No one's gonna comprehend

They teach you love, they make you belong...
Suck you in to spit you out, the rage is on...

Awaiting the night to yell a prayer up to the starlight
Veiling boon - Ghost in the moon
Grant me admission tonight
Into your tenebrous wicked star-bright golden gloom:
Ghost in the moon

Like a rushing thunder
You're a shade in the swampland
And a Trojan horse they'd rowel into your dreams
They chase you into dawn
To a silken bed of quicksand
Rush, so you can breathe, they'll give you up
You're in my world past remedy

Asking, wondering, look at me: waiting... prompting...
I may be drawn to something
That I can't phrase for you
Even though it's true

I won't be what they long to see in me
No matter how desperately they reach out for me
A sedating hand

They don't understand, I don't comprehend
I can't take no more of their shallow light
Burning me inside
Then I am better off a scorn in the night

I am rumour, I am nightmare
That I'm bound to dream myself
Half human - and it's frightening -
To just guess the other half

I'm a misfit on a journey and I'm afraid my destiny
Has been sealed right from the outset:
To immure the real me
I'll wane in this world
Just me and the glow of the moon - yeah wow

For the chill of the night is gonna summon a fire
A strange world on the brink, or a maniacal dream?
Dead matter alive - heart, soul and desire
Rise from the smoke and the fire -
From maniacal dreams
Crucible-born and unseen -
Megalo-maniacal dream
Megalo-maniacal dream

To chase the...
Ghost in the moonglow
Throw your gown upon the light
Ghost in the moonglow
Whisper from the starlit skies

Dark - frame a fire
Mystery of a blood red rose
Moon - spark a fire
You won't leave me on my own
