Lyrics

GHOST IN THE MACHINE - Richard Murray

Rollin' on, I'm rollin' on
Dark as thunder to the dawn
Eyes like glass, lost and forlorn
But I'm rollin' on

I put her down in a yard of bones
They blessed the ground, they cut the stone
A voice came callin 'You've dug your own boy'
I put her down in a yard of bones

She was the one she was the queen
Now shes a ghost in the machine
Shes all gone but still in me
The ghost in the machine

Its on my hands its in my veins
Her crimson blood it still remains
But she kept me right when I'd smoked my brains
Its on my hands its in my veins

She was the one she was the queen
Now shes a ghost in the machine
Shes all gone but still in me
The ghost in the machine

You can never give up the ghost
Sometimes you miss what you hate the most
Youth and beauty headin' south
Cannon fire from the mouth

But I'll work and I'll take my time
And I'll sleep on the side that's mine
When I roll over she kicks my mind
She always kept my ass in line
Yea I'll work I'll take my time
GHOST IN THE MACHINE - Richard Murray

Rollin' on, I'm rollin' on
Dark as thunder to the dawn
Eyes like glass, lost and forlorn
But I'm rollin' on

I put her down in a yard of bones
They blessed the ground, they cut the stone
A voice came callin 'You've dug your own boy'
I put her down in a yard of bones

She was the one she was the queen
Now shes a ghost in the machine
Shes all gone but still in me
The ghost in the machine

Its on my hands its in my veins
Her crimson blood it still remains
But she kept me right when I'd smoked my brains
Its on my hands its in my veins

She was the one she was the queen
Now shes a ghost in the machine
Shes all gone but still in me
The ghost in the machine

You can never give up the ghost
Sometimes you miss what you hate the most
Youth and beauty headin' south
Cannon fire from the mouth

But I'll work and I'll take my time
And I'll sleep on the side that's mine
When I roll over she kicks my mind
She always kept my ass in line
Yea I'll work I'll take my time

She was the one she was the queen
Now shes a ghost in the machine
Shes all gone but still in me
The ghost in the machine
Shes a ghost in the machine

She was the one she was the queen
Now shes a ghost in the machine
Shes all gone but still in me
The ghost in the machine
Shes a ghost in the machine
