Default Grow Your Ghost

Rest now
Its safe now
Let the ghosts sing

His holy name
Your unholy fame
But its alright, its alright
It’s okay

Inspiration isn’t scheduled
Isn’t planned it just comes
Like the ghosts
So respectful

Grow your Ghost
Lift your spirit
Feel better, Feel Better
Find an angel
Listen, listen for whispers
Feel better, Feel Better

Rest now
Its safe now
Let the ghosts sing

A cross so simple
A loss so bad
But, its alright, its alright
Feel better, Feel Better
It’s okay

Grow your Ghost
Heal your soul
Feel better, Feel Better
Sing, sing to god
Pray, pray for the ghosts
Feel better, Feel Better

Rest now
Its safe now
To make you understand this song more i tried to find some songs it has similar sound to:
Thrice - Lost Continent
Keane - A Bad Dream
Bon Iver - Blood Bank
Umm... i'll think of some more

Eh, the metaphor is still what's bothering me. It's rather wobbly in terms of meaning. I just kinda hear this 'feel good- God's Holy Ghost is here' type of thing that I hear from all the rich people at my church who are always 'slain in the spirit'.

This is not to be harsh, but you should recognize that the topic you are singing on has to contain insight-not restate or redo what everyone else has done (whether it was a song or not).

Your stuff has been great, in general, but you really need to sit down and think about what your saying in this song here before you consider it even nearly finished.

I'm not a christian so that's Not really it. if it was the title would be something more worshipy. its called "Grow Your Ghost" i thought that was straight forward enough

than don't force it. If you don't feel compelled to write the song than don't. Songwriting is about saying what you have or need to say--not what people want you to say.

Healing growing (spiritually) that's as simple as i can make it but i could probably go into more detail
i'm agnostic i'm not sure if that helps

Ha, that's amazing, but the sound it gives off has to be crappy

ya, probably--it's a sculpture by a japanese artist who likes taking mass produced goods and 'extremefying' them in some form or another. I'm pretty sure he's also responsible for the largest pair of underwear in the world book of records (guiness)
