​Give Up The Ghost

This song is by Evil Mothers and appears on the album Spider Sex and Car Wrecks (1997).

You're a long way from heaven and you're headed the wrong way
But I'm in no hurry and you're invited to stay
Soak yourself in sacred oils, some things we do we don't have to say
And talk of the good life is the last thing on our minds

I'm slipping out again
Gotta give up the ghost again
I'm slipping out again
Gotta give up the ghost again

And we talk of bad things and drink to bad dreams
'Cause the cars are already crashed, flown off the bridge like bats
Star-gazing out broken windows, become part of a ditch
Turn into angelic dust, fly away like a witch

I'm slipping out again
Gotta give up the ghost again
I'm slipping out again
Gotta give up the ghost again
The ghost again

Now the hours are slipping by into another day
Time to hide from the outside, these fires outside ain't going away
Let the flames shoot as high as I'm feeling today
And nothing can put me out, it's already been tried

I'm tripping out again
Gotta give up the ghost again
I'm tripping out again
Gotta give up the ghost again
Give up the ghost again...
