{Verse 1}
I am going away for a while
But I'll be back, don't try and follow me
'Cause I'll return as soon as possible
See I'm trying to find my place
But it might not be here where I feel safe
We all learn to make mistakes

And run
From them, from them
With no direction
We'll run from them, from them
With no conviction

'Cause I'm just one of those ghosts
Traveling endlessly
Don't need no roads
In fact they follow me

And we just go in circles

{Verse 2}
So Now I'm told that this is life
And pain is just a simple compromise
So we can get what we want out of it
Would someone care to classify,
Our broken hearts and twisted minds
So I can find someone to rely on

And run
To them, to them
Full speed ahead
Oh you are not useless
We are just

Misguided ghosts
Traveling endlessly
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away
And there's no one road
We should not be the same
But I'm just a ghost
And still they echo me

They echo me in circles

    You get lost in all the confusion, you dont know YOU are anymore. You are lost. Wandering. Without anyone, anything. Lonley in the world. The cruel world. You just need to get away, run away from fears, mistakes, broken hearts, with no one to reley on. Going on the same path, not finding what you are looking for, and not knowing what it is. You have a meaning, but dont know what it is.

    I used to have many friends all around. But my mother moves every year and those people I think will at least still remember me, don't. I've lost myself, i have pretty much no one to go to anymore. You think it's nothing. But it's gets very lonely.. going through life with no one their to share it with

    fml. hahahah (:

    To me, this song means how someone was taught the wrong things when they were little so when they head out into the world, they'll just be known as "misguided ghosts" or just someone who has no life planned out for them.

    I love this song. I think it's about finding your place in the world and it may be hard but you have to.
