Walking Ghost

Walking Ghost

A seaside town,on the British West coast
 The plight of the spice head,a walking ghost
An expression so empty,like an old hotel room
 A future of vacancy,doom and gloom
Sat in shop doorways,a face full of grime
 A date with the reaper,just a matter of time
Head hung forward,as the spice takes effect
 They don't give a damn,what happens next
A guilt sort of feeling,to see this on our streets
 As our lives are much better,fulfilled and complete
Some don't care,how their lives will end
This seems to be,the unfortunate trend

Pretty impressive, love the analogies. When we toured the UK last year noticed some of the coastal towns had gone downhill from what I remembered. Put it to music in a minor key.
