Happy Ghosts Lyrics

Here are the lyrics to the main Happy Ghosts releases:-

REVERENCE FOR LIFE 

      

 TRACK ONE: VOICES

Searching for something
In a world full of nothing
I hear your voice
Way down inside

An eye for an eye
Spent the truth for a lie
I know your voice
My guiding light

Hand full of nothing
For a world full of memory
I know your voice
My guiding light

I know your voice
My guiding light
My guiding light

An eye for an eye
Searching for something

Searching for something
In a world full of nothing
I know your voice
I know your voice
It’s just like mine

I know your voice, I know your voice

I know your voice
I know your voice
I know your voice

Lyrics by Matt Cahill

TRACK TWO: HOPE AND OPTIMISM

(Instrumental)

TRACK THREE: INGENIOUS MACHINE

Ingenious machine
Making life easy for me
Ingenious machine, Ingenious machine

One button pressed for entry
A real world opens for me
I am no longer free

Ingenious machine, Ingenious machine

Taking over my life
I am no longer free
My connection to everyone (x 2)

Ingenious machine, Ingenious machine

This mobility
Everything it has given me
I am no longer free

They come in all shapes and sizes
In boxes big and small
See my smile when I open them
Remove the plastic, throw away

Turn it on for the first time
Create the logon just for me
Feel the smoothness in my hand
Made with care and true love

What more could anyone want
Is there anything more to say?
How happy I am to be
Just me with my machine

My connection to everyone
Connected to no-one……….

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

TRACK FOUR: PRIDE AND DOWNFALL

(Instrumental)

TRACK FIVE: DOUBT

“It seems that the meaning of life, is in the search for meaning, no matter what the outcome may be”

“You let me in”

The doubt in your mind
Will be left behind
Don’t let it in
Don’t let it in

“If this involves great struggle, then even in the struggle there is a kind of peace…peace…peace”

“You let me in”

The doubt in your mind
Will be left behind

Why do we fail, just when we are needed?
It is the message, that’s not been heeded!
Why do we fail, just when we are needed?
It is the message, that’s not been heeded!

“It seems that the meaning of life….is in the search for meaning, no matter what the outcome may be…the meaning of life”

“You let me in”

The doubt in your mind
Will be left behind
Don’t let it in
Don’t let it in

Why do we fail, just when we are needed?
It is the message, that’s not been heeded!
Why do we fail, just when we are needed?
It is the message, that’s not been heeded!
Why do we fail, just when we are needed?
It is the message, that’s not been heeded!

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

TRACK SIX: REACHING OUT

I’m reaching out

Help me to learn
To grow and earn
To understand
What my soul does yearn

I feel alone
Lost in my space
About to be blown
To another place

How do I find myself?
How will I know?
What signs will I see?
To whom do I bow?

I’m reaching out to you
I’m reaching out to you
I’m reaching out
I’m reaching out
I’m reaching out

Lyrcis by Andrew Muecke

TRACK SEVEN: COMING TO GET YOU

And I’m coming to get you
(I will see it through)

And I think that you knew
(You know it’s true)

The favours that you accrue
(How can you do?)

The pictures that you drew
(You have no clue!)

I’m coming to get you
I’m coming, I’m coming
I’m coming to get you
I’m coming, I’m coming

So what is your view?
(It is on a skew)

Need a change in venue
(Time you flew)

I have done the review
(Now leave that crew)

No longer to be blue
(It’s time that you grew)

I’m coming to get you
I’m coming, I’m coming
I’m coming to get you
I’m coming, I’m coming

Bud-up……….

I’m coming to get you
I’m coming, I’m coming
I’m coming to get you
I’m coming, I’m coming

And I’m coming to get you
I’m coming
And I think you knew
You now it’s true

Bud-up……….

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

TRACK EIGHT: ATTRACTION AND UNCERTAINTY

It would be nice to know you better
To know your name and who you are
Though you are there and I am here
I feel that we are drawing near
I would like to know in what you believe
To see whether we can ever be
It would be nice to know you better
It would be nice……..and better

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

TRACK NINE: DIDN’T UNDERSTAND

Didn’t understand
What it meant to you
Only saw it my way
For so long, you give to me
For so long, you gave to me

Can I tell you?
That I live my life
With so much learned from you
Learnt from what you do
For so long, you gave to me
For so long, you give to me
For so long, you gave to me
For so long, you give to me

Didn’t understand
It’s your helping hand

So I thank you
And all that you do
You make my day
In every way
For so long, you gave to me
For so long, you give to me
For so long, you gave to me
For so long, you give to me

Didn’t understand
It’s your helping hand
To loves promised land
That helps me expand
Didn’t understand
It’s your helping hand
To loves promised land
That helps me expand
Didn’t understand……………

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

TRACK TEN: REVERENCE FOR LIFE

(Instrumental)

TRACK ELEVEN: NO RACE

Is this the end I see?
Is this the end for we?

Working together
That’s what we need
All races as one
Regardless of decree

My brother, my sister and me
No difference between anyone
No hate to bring us undone

Working together
That’s what we need
All races as one
Regardless of decree

It’ not so hard…not so hard
A good person is skin free…skin free…free…skin free

In my short life
And those that I meet
The love that I feel, why do we compete?

That’s what we need
All races as one
Regardless of decree

It’ not so hard…not so hard
A good person is skin free…skin free

Isn’t this what all religion’s say?
Isn’t this what it is all about?
As one, come together
As one, no race
Come, together
As one, no race
Come, together

As one, no race, come together

Looking, feeling, watching, seeking (repeat)

CSa TRACK ONE: COMMON FEELING – PART ONE

You can see it in their eyes
A common feeling
You can see it despite the disguise
A common feeling

Can I tell you this story?
One that comes from my dreams
To me it is so real
Like tearing apart at the seams

There are people who have
Pride in hurting you
What created that need
Lets work to set them free

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

CSa TRACK TWO: CANT SEEM TO

Can’t seem to forget about you……(about you)
Can’t seem to get you out of my head……..(my head)
It hurts just to think about it……….

The summer breeze
That is here to stay
Reminds me of you

We danced all night
And you held me tight
You loved me right

Can’t seem to forget about you (about you, about you, about you)
Can’t seem to get you out of my head (my head, can’t seem to, can’t seem to)
It hurts just to think about it……….about it, can’t seem to, can’t

Long hot days
Without a care
So free and easy

I liked to walk
You liked to talk
And I new I loved you

Can’t seem to forget about you (about you, about you, about you)
Can’t seem to get you out of my head (my head, can’t seem to, can’t seem to)
It hurts just to think about it……….about it, can’t seem to, can’t

Da dada dada da da
Da dada dada da da

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

CSa TRACK THREE: ODE TO MY FRIEND

In the corner is your picture
A time filled with laughter

So much life to give
Only to be taken away

And as I grow old
You will always be young

No chance to say goodbye
A weekend that turned out forever

I hope that you are well
And looking out for me

I miss you so dearly
My great, great friend

And as I grow old
You will always be young

And as I grow old
As I grow old

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

CSa TRACK FOUR: GOTTA DO IT

“Two of you united as a pair,
Thinking as one unit, acting as one unit”

“Well, its seems as though you two may have some things to talk over and settle”

“Gee huh,
Yer”

I can help you out!
“The chance for happiness”
I can help you out!

“And that means you and me”

“And these are not just fancy words. This is a practical and priceless way of living”

Gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it for another!
One another, one another, one another, gotta do it for!

Gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it for another!
One another, one another, one another, gotta do it for!

I can help you out!
I can help you out!

You have the right to be what you are and say what you think

Gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it for another!

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

CSa TRACK FIVE: SOMETHING NEW

Where do you see me?
Fitting in with your plans, ohhhhhhhhh!!

How do I see you?
And all that you do, nowwwwwwwww!!

Something new
Passing through

So complicated
Why do you, need to be

Something new
Passing through

Now your thinking
Absorbed in a mental void

What is wrong with you?
What have i got to do?
Why can’t you see it through?
Why is this something new?

Take your time
Cause I am gone

What is wrong with you?
What have i got to do?
Why can’t you see it through?
Why is this something new?
What is wrong with you?
What have i got to do?
Why can’t you see it through?
Why is this something new?
Something new
Something new

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

CSa TRACK SIX: A SIMPLE MESSAGE

I am reading from a book
One that tells of the power of now

Not of the accumulation of money
Nor of how I should look

Its strength lies in its message
That success can mean so many things

As long as we hold respect and love for all our life
And we look for what is important
It is there to be found

For what will enrich us is closely within our grasp
Never let doubt take over your mind
Do not dwell in sadness and pain
Happiness and strength is in our control
Waiting ever patiently, for us to hold

So nurture that which makes you strong
Keep open to all possibilities
Live life to its fullest
And bring love to all that you do

This is the way of life
This is the way of life……….

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

CSa TRACK SEVEN: FALLEN IDOL

I can see the way it’s going to be
The path that has been set for me

A shining light, a shining light, bright to the sight
Coming out, tonight, tonight…..

Lead me forward take me right, I am with you
On a journey away, away……..

Nothing can stop me,
I will reach you
To follow you, follow you………

I will tell the people they must come
To hear what it is that must be done
To heal the world, heal the world
To heal the world………..

You can’t have meant to get it all that wrong
When you sang out loud in your song
In your song, you were wrong
You were wrong………

My Fallen Idol, my misguided trust
Misplaced…………

And you have left not guiding me
Having trouble
I am troubled
Troubled………….

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

CSa TRACK EIGHT: COMMON FEELING – PART TWO

Carrie’s voice treated

CSa TRACK NINE: FOUR EMOTIONS

I wake up and my mind is unsound
Needing a turn to see my way through
Trying to convince myself “it will be fine. Just fine”

The day is bringing light to me
And I am seeing another side of me
I am happy, can’t you see (I can)

Lullaby
I feel so tired
I am so quiet
Why now?
Lullaby
The rain comes down
So soothe me
So soothe me, now

But now I am ready
And so fit and strong
Ready to get going
And you will be there too
This night has just started
For you and me
The darkness elevating
To another better place
And can you believe
Our four emotions in one day
Four emotions come my way
Four emotions so you say
There are four emotions in one day
Four emotions in one day

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

CSa TRACK TEN: LAMENT

Carrie’s operatic voice

SLa TRACK ONE: ON THE MOVE

What’s a man to do, but open up
Make up for lost time, beat the speed limit, just a little
Everybody’s on the move now

Move baby move, move lady move
Move baby move, move lady move (everybody’s on the move now)
Move baby move, move lady move
Move baby move, move lady move

Daylight hours are growing shorter day by day
The good road leads to things people couldn’t think of years ago

But good roads alone aren’t always enough

The horizon is constantly widening

Everybody’s on the move now
Move baby move, move lady move
Move baby move, move lady move (everybody’s on the move now)
Move baby move, move lady move
Move baby move, move lady move

Next report please (oh good)
Move baby move, move lady move
Move baby move, move lady move

(oh good)

He has found the road
Travel safely and quickly over a modern express highway

A dangerous and overloaded highway

Move baby move, move lady move
Move baby move, move lady move
Move baby move, move lady move
Move baby move, move lady move……

Lyrics by Ashley Starkey

“And these are not just fancy words. This is a practical and priceless way of living”

Gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it for another!

Gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it for another!
One another, one another, one another, gotta do it for!

I can help you out!

You have the right to be what you are and say what you think

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

SLa TRACK THREE: BEAUTIFUL HOMES

Our home shall be beautiful
Because our love is beautiful
Comfort and colour and cherished self expression

They were waiting to be told
But there was no one to tell them

At home
At home

Beautiful homes, beautiful homes, beautiful homes, beautiful homes….at home

Here is something that will truly give substance to their adoration
At home
More than we may realise
At home

Beautiful homes, beautiful homes, beautiful homes, beautiful homes
More than we might realise….at home.

Rugs and carpets to soften the floors
Chairs and couches and beds and dining room tables and desks
Radios and electric refrigerators, automobiles

More than we might realise…at home

Beautiful homes, beautiful homes, beautiful homes, beautiful homes….at home

An investment in prestige and good taste
And above all pride and happiness

One family!

Lyrics by Ashley Starkey

SLa TRACK FOUR: SHINY ROBOTS

Little Robots
They’re watching you
The shining soldiers
They’re watching too

They’re watching you, they’re watching you

Little Robots
They’re watching you

Capitalism
Well, why should there be any question about it?

They’re watching you, what do you do
They’re watching you, what do you do

They’re watching you (repeat)….

Lyrics by Ashley Starkey

To heal the world………..

You were wrong………

My Fallen Idol, my misguided trust

Troubled………….

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

SLa TRACK SIX: DID ANYTHING HAPPEN?

Do you feel a little anxious?
I don’t think so

Do you feel like there is some inner tension?
Yes
Definitely with me

There is something else that is so important

But you dont know what’s causing it

Do you feel that you did something bad?
I feel it might have been me
I don’t feel that i did it

Did anything happen
Happen that night
Did anything happen
That wasn’t quite right
Leave it in the past
Leave it all behind
It happened, it happened, it happened in your mind

No I don’t feel that way about it at all
Do you know what the prearranged signal is?
I don’t know what you are talking about
Signal for what

Did anything happen?

But you’re going round and around

Did anything happen?

Did anything happen
Happen that night
Did anything happen
That wasn’t quite right
Leave it in the past
Leave it all behind
It happened, it happened, it happened in your mind

But you’re going round and around, round and around

Standing there on the outside
No they’re dancing, dancing around
Standing there on the outside
But you’re going round and around
Very strange

Lyrics by Ashley Starkey

SLa TRACK SEVEN: EASIER SAID THAN DONE

Did you ever get tricked by the light?
Did you ever, did you ever

There is so much wrong (did you ever, did you ever)
So much right
You can find

Did you ever?

Did you ever?

Easier said than done……..

Gotta meet somebody
Gotta be somewhere
Gotta make it right…now

Pray for rain

Rain, send us the rain, rain
Send us some rain

Anyone who tells you otherwise, is lying (is lying)

This is an emergency (this is an emergency)
This is an emergency (this is an emergency)

Some of the things I see in this country of ours makes my blood boil

Are you free to rob or free to kill?

Surprised, yer, but you promised us?
Surprised, yer, but you promised us?
Surprised, yer, but you promised us?

SLa TRACK ELEVEN: YOU LIKE SOMEONE

Tonight, the feeling between us kept getting stronger and stronger
The lights are on
And things seem to happen, til we nearly….

Now what’s the matter dear?

I was young once too

Perhaps I can understand something of what you feel?

You like someone, he likes you

Your physical urges fight against your reason

Mother, is it wrong to feel warm and affectionate when you are with a boy your really like?
No dear it is not wrong

‘Where you going to?’
‘Where you going to?’ Hi, hi
‘Where you going to?’

What would you like on your sandwich?
How about you?

‘Where you going to?’ I’m almost ready
‘Where you going to?’ I’m almost ready
‘Where you going to?’

I don’t know what to think I am so mixed up

Well I know what to do now

Now I am beginning to understand

Sometimes even promises can’t be kept

Dada Dada Dada Dadum dum da………..

For us to get together and talk all night

SCOBa TRACK THREE: ETERNAL FLAME

Found my voice

Found my voice
Eternal Flame

Lyrics by Ashley Starkey

SCOBa TRACK FOUR: WEALTH & WASTE

Allow me to introduce them, men of wealth and waste
Social misfits, satanic majesties, rock and roll outlaws

Touched by the glimmer, touched by the glimmer, touched by the glimmer within

They were the house band at Ultimo
And it wasn’t ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ that was played whilst Hunter was killed
It was ‘Under my thumb’, Under My Thumb?

What does that song mean?
What does that song mean?

Out of our heads

Music and dancing was going to change everything
But most people just wanted to have a good time
Tell me what’s your name? Tell me, what’s your name?

What’s your name?

No need for a name
There the greatest rock and roll band in the world
They’re not satanic, they’re just a dark force of nature
Very naughty boys, elevated, illuminated, deified
They weren’t a message, they were an expression

Out of our heads

What’s your name?

There was anarchy but a lot of idealism
And for a while everything was alright

Sharpen, shaman, androgynous, sex, vampire

Touched by the rhythm, touched by the rhythm within
Who’s that? Who’s that? Who’s that?
Don’t you do that, don’t you do that

They were persecuted, vilified, prosecuted for their beliefs
But the world was going to change
It was like a great tidal wave
No one realized it was about to break
No one foresaw the rise of the corporation

These boys were going to become some of the richest in the world
Playing on all your favorite radio stations

What’s my name?
Tell me what your name?

SCOBa TRACK FIVE: SHOULD HAVE KNOWN

(Instrumental)

SCOBa TRACK SIX: YOUNG

And we had a really great fun time
And we swam every day
We played in the sand on the beaches
And we also played a game of putt-putt golf
I won by one hole

And then we went to the um,
Ahh, what is it called?
And we each got an ice cream
From this ice cream parlour in there

And it’s a funny thing, cos,
In the ahh, waves, in the sea
You couldn’t really taste the salt,
There was hardly any salt in there

And it was really fun…
When we were Young, I think it’s really great
When we were Young, and it was really fun
When we were Young, I think it’s really great
When we were Young

The next day afterwards
We, um,
I dived into the sand, you know, a couple of times
And so my face was all sandy, you know,
And I had swallowed sand, and it was all sandy
But it was really really great fun
And so then we went back and had a swim to clean ourselves off

It was really nice……
When we were Young, I think it’s really great
When we were Young, and it was really fun
When we were Young, I think it’s really great
When we were Young
When we were Young

SCOBa TRACK SEVEN: CALLING JOY

Need to be free
You and me
Remedy

Need to be free
You and me
Need to be free
Remedy

You and me

Need to be free

You and me, need to be free, you and me
You and me, and you and me

And you and me
You and me need to be free

Lyrics by Ashley Starkey

SCOBa TRACK EIGHT: LOOSEN UP

Loosen up, loosen up
Loosen up, loosen up

‘Doors are an essential part of our lives
Even more so than most of us realise’

Loosen up
Loosen up
Loosen up
Loosen up

Hold me up, loosen up
Open up, loosen up
Take me up, loosen up
Loosen up

Loosen up
Loosen up
Ain’t right to be feeling this poor

Loosen up
Ain’t right to be feeling this sore
Loosen up

Talk me down, loosen up, loosen up
Talk me down, loosen up, loosen up
Talk me down, loosen up, loosen up
Talk me down, loosen up, loosen up

Something Beautiful

SBa TRACK ONE: SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

Happy Ghosts
They’re hiding in the bushes, on the edge of town
They’re hiding in the bushes, all around

Happy Ghosts

Be kind to their families, be careful with they’re soul, tall
That’s what this world is all about

Something beautiful, something beautiful
Beautiful………….

They’re wondering about the common good, wondering about what it is

They’re naughty by nature, but kind of heart
Glowing in the distance, glowing serene

Happy Ghosts

‘I want to make beautiful, I want to make beautiful
I want to make, happy, happy, happy!’

They’re kicking tumbleweeds, blowing in the wind
There magpies in the kitchen, but you know they hate that domestic shit

Something beautiful
Happy Ghosts

They’re singing kinda crazy
Baying at the roof
They’re trying to sound scrutible
But coming up crystal clear

‘I want to make beautiful, I want to make beautiful
I want to make, happy, happy, happy!’

Glowing in the distance, glowing serene
Happy Ghosts!

Lyrics by Ashley Starkey

SBa TRACK TWO: FOUR EMOTIONS

I wake up and my mind is unsound
Needing a turn to see my way through
Trying to convince myself “it will be fine. Just fine”

The day is bringing light to me
And I am seeing another side of me
I am happy, can’t you see (I can)

Lullaby
I feel so tired
I am so quiet
Why now?
Lullaby
The rain comes down
So soothe me
So soothe me, now

But now I am ready
And so fit and strong
Ready to get going
And you will be there too
This night has just started
For you and me
The darkness elevating
To another better place
And can you believe
Our four emotions in one day
Four emotions come my way
Four emotions so you say
There are four emotions in one day
Four emotions in one day

Lyrics by Andrew Muecke

SBa TRACK THREE: SHARKS OR SKIN

Let’s begin with the skin
Everybody needs a good time

Good times, ‘Satisfaction’, satisfaction
Protect your skin

Do want you want, say what you mean, what do you mean?
Do want you want, say what you mean
Do want you want, say what you mean, what do you mean?
Do want you want, say what you mean
What do you mean, watcha want, what do you mean

Fresh water beauty is possible
Everybody needs various layers

Sharks in the water, sharks…………

What it is and what it does, what do you mean
Amazing sensitivity to outside stimuli

Sharks in the water, sharks…………

Most everyone sweats
Everybody needs beauty, what do you mean?

Sharks in the water, sharks…………

Everybody needs a good time
Satisfaction
Keep it clean

Clean, satisfied, good times
What it is and what it does
Parts of the body, lip, the feet, the eyes, your fingertips

Flesh, flesh,……………..good times……..flesh
And so the end of a perfect day….flesh
Good times, come to me

Lyrics by Ashley Starkey

PBa TRACK ONE: BOOZE & PILLS

“Marijuana, Heroin”
“Hundreds and hundreds of teenage boys and girls
Are becoming hopeless dope addicts each year”

Booze and Pills
“Marijuana, Heroin”
Giving me thrills
Warning sign

“Invigorating”
Housemen, Kesey, Burroughs, Leary
Down among the dead men
“It’s terrible”
Warning sign

“It’s fantastic”
Housemen, Kesey, Burroughs, Leary
Down among the dead men
“It’s terrible”
Warning sign
Warning sign

Making me ill
Booze and Pills
“Unbelievable isn’t it that such things can happen”
Making me ill
Booze and pills

But it didn’t stop addiction
“It just made it harder for victims to get the stuff”
Making me ill
Booze and Pills

“Occasional users of marijuana, heroin,
Sleeping pills have nearly gone crazy”
Giving me thrills
Making me ill

“Confirmed addicts, parents have nearly gone crazy”
Giving me thrills
Making me ill

“Most teenagers start off with marijuana,
Then they decide to see if heroin has any kick
It does”

“In order to get money to buy it, they turn to crime
And that’s the story”

“Judge he is a good boy!”

Housemen, Kesey, Burroughs, Leary
Down among the dead men

But I wasn’t there

Never trust pranksters
Making me ill
Booze and Pills
Refer Madness
Giving me thrills
Propaganda…..

PBa TRACK TWO: IDEAL DATE

This boy and girl coming home from school
Look quite content with life
And why not?
They’re looking forward to an important date
Dinner at home with the family

The Ideal Date
Doesn’t it sound exciting to you?

Hmm is it that late?
Dad will be here any minute
Better tell mother she is needed in the kitchen, hmm

‘Kissing in the kitchen
Dancing on the ceiling’

Hmm,
The Ideal Date
Hmm,
The Ideal Date

Brother notices the time
And realises that he must put things in order
and clean himself up in time for dinner

Father too, looks forward to this date with the family
He has had a hard day at the office
These boys greet their dad as though they are genuinely glad to see him
The Ideal Date

Pleasant and emotional conversation helps digestion
The Ideal Date
Don’t monopolise the conversation and go on and on without stopping
Don’t discuss unpleasant topics such as gruesome sights or sounds
This is time of pleasure, hmm

Reverence and respect
The Ideal Date
Reverence and respect
The Ideal Date
Reverence and respect
The Ideal Date

The dinner table is no place for discontent
This does not mean you should be stiff or formal
With your own family you can relax
Be yourself
Just be sure that it’s your best self

Now we are ready for desert
Hmm, do you see now how dinner with your family can be a truly special occasion
The Ideal Date
The Ideal Date
