Ghost Along The Mississippi Lyrics

Artist: Down
Album: Down II

In the morning, it takes me quite a while to clear my head
And as the day moves on, I find it hard to smile at something said
So I took control, priority number one, and that's me
Then I cut the dragon's head off, and put away my gun, so let it be
So let it be

I'm dying prematurely, I'm wasting my life for sure
I'm trying to kill what's happening to me
A ghost along the Mississippi

I never thought before, a life could be so strange, but it is
And I guess my one a day, became ten or twelve or more, and more
But I've got a gift, it's something called my friends or love
With them and I combined, I'll beat an early end, it's been done before

No time of passing away, of losing just one more day
I'm trying to kill what's happening to me
A ghost along the Mississippi

Can't happen to me
Won't do it to me
Can't happen to me
Won't do it to me
Can't happen to me
Won't do it to me

Destroying what's got ahold of me
No more the ghost of Mississippi

I think its about fighting drug addiction and suffering withdrawal and psychological addiction.

This song is ABOUT Phils addiction and his kicking it... in reference to: Then I cut the dragon's head off...dragon means ones addiction..I have followed Phil w/ Pantera and Down for over twenty years...If you ever had/have the pleasure of speaking to him He will verify this...Was not a good time in his life as Addiction was his life then...

Regardless of what this song is about, it's fucking incredible. Phil's and EXTREMELY talented individual.

Yup, its about addiction. Mostly painkillers and herion. Youtube phil speaking at (cant remember the name) college, he talks all about it.

This song is my inspiration to stay clean. If the OD don't kill u getting high and only worrying about your next fix will kill you're life love and happiness. Please no more heroin! Phil did it and with his inspiration I will too.
