Track Name: The Host (Single Version)
15.–17 June 2018

there’s always time for another haunting
there’s always room for the next ghost
though the undead always leave me wanting
I will always be a willing host
there’s nothing quite like a proper haunting
no one as loyal as a silent ghost
when the dying leave and the living taunt me
only the undead will share a toast

to a soul in dismay
to a mind in disarray
to a life that’s gone astray
to the faithless that turn away
from the day

with open arms I invite the haunting
the lights are out, the stage is set
with an open mind and a bitter wanting
it only takes a thought to raise the dead
it’s so lifeless here when there’s no haunting
the gaping void of an empty host
when even ghosts turn away to taunt me
no-one in the world will raise a toast

to the spark of life that fades
to ideals and hopes decayed
to the will to leave this place
to the nameless that have returned
to their graves

(with open arms I invite the haunting

it’s so lifeless here when there’s no haunting
the gaping void of an empty host
when even ghosts turn away to taunt me
no-one in the world will raise a toast

to the spark of life that fades
to ideals and hopes decayed
to the will to leave this place
to the nameless that have returned
