Track Name: The Ghost Of The Stockade Has Come Upon Us
When the lamplight burns out I run
There is fog in my eyes running fast
There he stands, he the ghost, he is passed
I am far, I am far, I am done

In the city I stand all alone
When he comes from the night, from the night
His shadow I see by the light
He arrives, no one knows, no one knows

Coming for us, I cover my eyes
Safe from the ghost that roams
I see my breath in the cold
I run, I run, I run…

See the dust form the ground fly away
As I run through the streets breathing hard
He approaches my side from afar
I know not what to say, what to say

Frozen, I stand in the dark
As the ghost of the Stockade, he speaks
Through my trembling fingers I peek
I'm alone, it is dark, it is dark

Calling for us, I shut my eyes
Safe from the ghost the moans
I see his hand that touches my arm
I run, I run, I run…

Overhead shines a light glowing white
From the sky, burning soft, burning hard
He leads me there through the dark
It is here, it has come, it is night

Coming for us, I open my eyes
Safe with the ghost that roams
I see the light that covers all
I run, I run, I run…
