I am a man that used to be
Reduced to ectoplasmic wee
Down darkened corridors I creep
Shufflin footsteps floor boards creak
There is a place we used to go
Of fabled stages top-rate shows
In New York City we did blow
All of our cash and all our loads
At night the Bowery came alive
And Chinee opium we tried
Into the clip joints and the dives
That's how we lived that's how we died
I am a ghost of darkness gone
In Tammany we sang this song
The Black Sheeps' work was never done
The spectres of The Chosen Ones
And from the Ghost Ships we did come
Green Manalishis on the run
Cursed by the anthems of the sun
Conscripted phantoms hired guns
I pass through rooms and float down halls
Rattle the pictures on your walls
An apparition at nightfall
O three hundred banshees call
