What do you say to the dead?
Will you forgive me for living?
Can't believe the things that they said
Wonderful day for a killing
It's killing me

What do they do with your soul?
Is it just lying there busted?
When did you lose all control?
Is there someone to be trusted?
With my mind

Oh there's insufficient evidence
Of what just might come after
But sometimes out of nowhere
There's demented sounds of laughter

Are we all haunted by
The ghost - Imagination
It just can't be
I've seen them there
Howling at the moon

Is it just me
Or does somebody else believe this
I'm not alone
I'm not afraid
There's just one way to see

After all...

What do you say to the dead?
Is there a place where it's burning?
It says in a book I once read
Yes there's a chance of returning
Turn to me

The fundamental principles
Say nothing of forever
But those are voices that I hear
Or I'm just not so clever

It can't be me
I know somebody else believes this
I'm not alone
I'm not afraid
Just one way to see

After all...
