Broken Bells “The Ghost Inside” Video

Danger Mouse (Brian Joseph Burton) + James Mercer = Broken Bells

Not at all saying I know music. But in my review of Broken Bells I stated:

I’m also a big fan of “The Ghost Inside,” a beat that I can see sliding into top 20 charts eventually (not to mention the lyrics are straight silk).

Here is the link to the blog as evidence. I’m including the lyrics below the video. I can certainly relate to the highlighted verse and if you know me and my hand, you can understand why. Maybe not all my blogging is nonsense, but then again maybe so.

The Ghost Inside

She sold her love to a modern man
Cause solid currency’s the hardest to love
All that money helps you cover your eyes
Don’t let the lady finger blow in your head

Give it up for that dollar
She’s a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up the ghost inside

Just like a whiskey bottle drained on the floor
She’s got no future just a life to endure
This good Samaritan’s shaking her hide
“Too Late to Leave Him” are the songs in her car

Give it up for that dollar
She’s a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up the ghost inside

You call it chivalry
Never pull a punch for free
You ever wonder why they had to move on
This phony honor code
That puts you on your throne
A double standard
You invoke when you want

For that dollar
She’s a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up the ghost inside

Was it all for show
Don’t turn into one of them
Turn another page
Trust me darling
I’m carving a road through the dust in your town
Crawling over rubble
Just to sort it out
Now I tend to wonder why
