Lyrics:

   Why are you frightened - can't you see that it's you
   That ain't no ghost - it's a reflection of you
   Why do you turn away - an' keep it out of sight
   Oh - don't live up to your given roles
   There's more inside you that you won't show

   But you keep it hidden just like everyone
   You're scared to show you care - it'll make you vulnerable
   So you wear that ghost around you for disguise
   But there's no need just 'cos it's all we've known
   There's more inside you that you haven't shown

   So keep on moving, moving, moving your feet
   Keep on shuf-shuf-shuffling to this ghost dance beat
   Just keep on walking down never ending streets
   One day you'll walk right out of this life
   And then you'll wonder why you didn't try

   To spread some loving all around
   Old fashioned causes like that still stand
   Gotta rid this prejudice that ties you down
   How do you feel at the end of the day
   Just like you've waked over your own grave

   So why are you frightened - can't you see that it's you
   At the moment there's nothing - so there's nothing to lose
   Lift up your lonely heart and walk right on through
