about

Great American Ghost Boston, Massachusetts

Boston’s harshest and most furious export, Great American Ghost, will release their self-titled manifesto in March 2013. This initial offering, poignant yet violent, angry yet intelligent, solidifies Great American Ghost as the bastard children of the Boston hardcore scene. Recorded and produced by Jay Mass (Defeater, HH, TF) Great American Ghost unleashes a sadistic explosion of anger and thrash. ... more

Track Name: Deathbed
I felt alone as you fell away
Cut off your nose to spite your face

I felt your hands warmed by your death

A hollow heart and an empty step

Saw your breath saw it fade away

Slipping off to an early grave

Go ahead and run away
Like always, like always
Slipping off to an early grave

No rest, no sleep, no hope, no peace…

I couldn’t speak as I held your hand

Knew you weren’t there to make amends
The cover up caked on your face

The touch of life that it replaced

The crosses hung above your head

An empty mark to guide the dead

No Gods, not here, not in this room

The fuckin walls that are your tomb

Saw your breath saw it fade away
Slipping off to an early grave

Go ahead and run away
Like always, like always
Slipping off to an early grave

Watched as your world
Watched it fell apart

Empty eyes and a hollow heart

Sat and watched as your world decayed

Watched that bed become your grave
Track Name: Glass Houses
Home is where the heart stops…

Is this safe for you

Is this where you should be

I just keep losing myself over and over again

Do you need safety
Are you alright

Should you be saved by the man that loves you more than life

You are a hallowed shell
An empty body trapped in this Hell
Track Name: With Wings
I’ve loved

I’ve lost

That’s how life goes

I won’t see Heaven there’s nowhere North for me

My home is to the South I’ll let Hell set me free

From my family and friends cause I don’t give a fuck

If I can’t find my way back well that’s just my luck

I was alone in this world so alone I shall I leave
That’s how I lived and in that I believe

And my life and my love have already let go

As my eyes roll back you can’t begin to know

This is the end of everything you’ve learned to love

So say goodbye to all the things you can’t get back

I am the end

Say goodbye to a life eternal

This is the end and no one’s taking you in

Let go

Just let go

Who you were and where you lay

Made you the man that died today
Your mistakes don’t mean shit to me
Track Name: Codeine
I take a pill to wake up

I take a pill to sleep

I can’t close my eyes the world is following me

And I can feel the crushing everyday

And when I close my eyes the pain it won’t go away

Was it worth it

Was it worth

Nothing more that a slight of hand

Was it worth it

It wasn’t worth it

It was over before it began

All I’ve lost, I’m lost with you

I take a pill to wake up a pill to sleep

I can’t close my eyes the world is following me

Well I was born along the road that my father walked on his way back down to Hell

And I’ve been locked behind the doors that my mother locked for as long as I can tell

Well I’d be lying if I say that on my dying day I’m not a lost and lonely soul
Well throw my body in the lake let it wash away and don’t you bother with the hole…
