plastered across your window over looking the ground below
starry eyed and innocent all holding out for hope
with passing time where was that change you wanted most
do the young and loud start movin' out and giving up the ghost

little bits of protest are getting harder everyday
why even try for actions when its easier to say
there's so much space here inland, that one day will be the coast
the rising tide can't stress your mind you've given up the ghost

aint it easy just to let go
its only more frightening the more that you know
cab't hear the fighting with your ears closed
to the indignant screams of those that dream and can't believe
the irony of apathy and giving up the ghost

aint it easy just to let go
can't be bothered by the things that I don't know
so raise your glass up with me here's a toast
to the young and loud all movin' out and giving up the ghost
