Hungry Ghosts

VERSE 1

I’m sorry I couldn’t live up to

Expectations that society gave

I’m sorry that I’ll never be perfect 

I’m sorry that I need to escape

I really don’t need any judgement

And I sure as hell don’t need any hate

This world that we live in is madness 

Can you blame me if I want to escape?


PRE-CHORUS

From the Land of Gods and Monsters 

And the Realm of Hungry Ghosts 

There are countless fallen angels The prophets of a broken world


CHORUS

On the Other Side of Midnight

On the Dark side of the Moon

There are countless congregations

Of Hungry Ghosts searching for some Truth

We are the lost ones

The Cursed ones

The ones everyone forgot

But on the Other Side of Midnight

We sing hope’s song

With other Hungry Ghosts


VERSE 2

There isn’t no space in the daylight 

There isn’t no space in the world

There isn’t no heart here to welcome

There’s no place for these hungry ghosts

I know that the world isn’t fair play

I know it’s for suckers and fools

I don’t like the way that we play this

I don’t like the things that we do


PRE-CHORUS

In the Land of Gods and Monsters 

And the Realm of Hungry Ghosts 

There are countless fallen angels 

The prophets of a broken world

CHORUS

On the Other Side of Midnight

On the Dark Side of the Moon

There are countless congregations

Of Hungry Ghosts searching for some Truth

We are the lost ones

The cursed ones

The ones everyone forgot

But on the Other Side of Midnight

We sing hope’s song

With other Hungry Ghosts


BRIDGE

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel

Is there a light at the end of the road

Raise up a light, this is our final battle

Raise up a light to save our soul


PRE-CHORUS

From the Land of Gods and Monsters

And the land of Hungry Ghosts

They are countless fallen angels

The prophets of a broken world 


CHORUS

On the Other Side of Midnight

On the Dark Side of the Moon

There are countless congregations

Of Hungry Ghosts searching for some truth

We are the lost ones

The cursed ones

The ones everyone forgot

But on the Other Side of Midnight

We sing hope’s song

With other Hungry Ghosts
