Lyrics: Why are you frightened can't you see that it's you? That ain't no ghost it's a reflection of you Why do you turn away and keep it out of sight? Oh don't live up to your given roles There's more inside you that you won't show But you keep it hidden just like everyone You're scared to show you care it'll make you vulnerable So you wear that ghost around you for disguise But there's no need just 'cos it's all we've known There's more inside you that you haven't shown So keep on moving, moving, moving your feet Keep on shuf-shuf-shuffling to this ghost dance beat Just keep on walking down never ending streets One day you'll walk right out of this life And then you'll wonder why you didn't try To spread some loving all around Old fashioned causes like that still stand Gotta rid this prejudice that ties you down How do you feel at the end of the day? Just like you've waked over your own grave So why are you frightened can't you see that it's you? At the moment there's nothing so there's nothing to lose Lift up your lonely heart and walk right on through
