Ghost Of Your Past - Grunge Song Idea

Hi all,

Working on a song idea.  Its a cryptic song, I know.  Feedback welcome.

GHOST OF YOUR PAST

(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

It’s the same apparition
Coming back
To warn of the future
With a flashback

It, spooks, and, scares, you
It, knows, just, how, to
Exploit, your, weakness
And, your, help…, less…, ness

You, can’t, escape, from
The ghost of your past
Like a phantom limb
The ghost of your past

The ghost of your past
The ghost of your past

Now a big storm is formin’
In your mind
The past has escaped you
Can’t be confined

You, should, have, lis…, tened
Your, doom’s, now, chris…, tened
Ign…, nored, your, weak…, ness
Now, you, are, help…, less

You, can’t, escape, from
The ghost of your past
Like a phantom limb
The ghost of your past

The ghost of your past
The ghost of your past

Loving the guitars, certainly had my toes tapping. Interesting lyrics.

Sounds great! Got a nice kick to it which I love. I also find the lyrics fascinating, you know ''Like a phantom limb, The ghost of your past''. It's quite poetic but also cryptic at the same time so I can interpret the song in different ways. Which is great! Well done! Smiley

I like this song, sounds complete except for some mixing issues

one specific issue - the cymbals sound is almost non-existent in the singing parts - were they EQed out or recorded this way?


Have a great day!
