Song: The Ghost Of None

FAWM 2019

Album: FAWM 2019
Track: #26

Oh I _really_ like this one. It probably needs some tweaks, but I love the simplicity of it, and that little bass run is a thing I've been sitting on all month trying to make work, and, at least as of this writing, it feels like the perfect song for this.

The lyrics I think don't quite convey how the demons represent peoples own inhibitions and hatred as well as how their opinions kill others (the ghost of None). I don't generally like to explain lyrics in the liner notes, but I think the depth of this song is more in the delivery than in the poetry.

We'll see. As always, I can't wait to hear your comments!

In a hole down
Beneath the garden grounds
People saw the ghost of None

They saw it go out
They saw it wander around
They saw where it imposed upon

And they thought, man, I won't let it down
Without me, man, it won't get around
Yeah, man, it don't belong in Derry town
But with those demons, man, you gotta let em out

In that whole town
Just finding common ground
Teetered on the ghost of None

They saw it play out
They saw it honor bound
They saw how they ignored someone

And they thought, man, I won't let it down
Without me, man, it won't get around
Yeah, man, it don't belong in Derry town
But with those demons, man, you gotta let em out

Yeah, man, it don't belong in Derry town
Without me, man, it won't get around
