  • Lyrics:
Ghosts in shackles-and - ghosts in chains and
          Ghosts in prisons-they built
Ghosts em-burdened-with - blocks and stones and
          Some encumbered-by guilt
Ghosts in tatters-and - ghosts in shreds and
          Ghosts in tailor-made shoes
Ghosts of sinners-and - ghosts of saints and
          Some who couldn't-quite choose

Ghouls of var-i-ous sorts! - Leave their earthly-disports!
Cease their moaning-and Ghastly groaning-to Plead their moment-in court
