Numan, Gary - Ghost Nation Lyrics




We live in a windswept hell
Where dust and death are neighbours
We hide in a perfect storm
Not even God remembers

We ran from the wars of man
From everything you are and would be
We are invisible
We are the dead Ghost Nation

When the sky came down
When the sun went dark
When the night was torn
And we heard God laugh
When "The Righteous" came
And they cleansed our sins
Have you ever seen death with your own eyes?

We live in The Great Unfound
Where thought and ghost still wander
We drift on drifting sand
Where horrors of our past still linger

We hide from the world of man
From the cruelty of that defines you
We are the wind that cries
We are the dead Ghost Nation

When the sky came down
When the sun went dark
When the night was born
And we heard God laugh
When "The Righteous" came
And they cleansed our sins
Have you ever seen God with your own eyes?

We are embers in the flame
We are whispers in God's name
We're the heat that burns your skin
We're the cold that lets pain in
We're the wind that blinds your eyes
We're the shame that haunts your lies
We're the nightmare when you sleep
We're the guilt that all men keep

When the sky came down
When the sun went dark
When the night was born
And we heard God laugh
When "The Righteous" came
And they cleansed our sins
Have you ever seen me with your own eyes?

  1. Seth Kumar

    Rhys Fulber keys? I dig- fans: check out Front Line Assembly + www.bandlab.com/6t16iz

  2. David Houlihan

    Why this wasn't a bond theme I'll never know. Listening since 1979 when I was 9 years old. D.H

  3. Arlyn Baggot

    Mr. Numan is an amazing artist, but will someone please show him how to properly wear a plate carrier.

  4. Andrew Baclawski

    Great song................I love driving to it !

  5. Brockton Sorensen

    Where can I get his outfit?

  6. Spud Eleven

    Haunting...gives me chills. What a great mix of rock licks, synth, waveform distortion, vocals and reverb, all with a post-apocalyptic theme (the still photo reminds me of "Dune"; knowing that you're a big SF fan, this isn't surprising) coupled to a Middle Eastern touch that gives it a wild, edgy exotic quality. And those lyrics! Gary, you've outdone yourself. Bravo from someone who still listens to "Replicas" to this very day.

  7. Julie Cook

    Been a numan fan for many years but never been to any concerts ,next year I will ,even if IV to go on my own 💜

  8. Joe Knows

    Another artist that should be much more popular than he is.

  9. TheSickOldToad

    If you wore that to the airport they’d check you for bombs

  10. Alntaro Bloodmoon

    This is beautiful perfection

  11. ScienceWinsEveryTime

  16. M G

    Nine inch Nail version Gary Numan

  17. Evy M

    Got to see him live, around the time of the release of Splinter, and what an amazing show, in an old dance hall that sang with the music.....you could feel it through the soles of your feet. One of the best concerts of my life so far.

  18. Lance Campo

    Gary is a Fremen? "He will know your ways, as if born to them." Nice still suit.

  19. Ain Sofiya

    This is my new favourite song ever

  20. Анастасия Кошман

    [Verse 1]
    We live in a windswept hell
    Where dust and death are neighbours
    We hide in a perfect storm
    Not even God remembers

    [Verse 2]
    We ran from the wars of man
    From everything you are and would be
    We are invisible
    We are the dead Ghost Nation

    [Chorus]
    When the sky came down
    When the sun went dark
    When the night was torn
    And we heard God laugh
    When The Righteous came
    And they cleansed our sins
    Have you ever seen death
    With your own eyes?

    [Verse 3]
    We live in The Great Unfound
    Where thought and ghost still wander
    We drift on drifting sand
    Where horrors of our past still linger


    [Verse 4]
    We hide from the world of man
    From the cruelty that defines you
    We are the wind that cries
    We are the dead Ghost Nation

    [Chorus]
    When the sky came down
    When the sun went dark
    When the night was torn
    And we heard God laugh
    When the Righteous came
    And they cleansed our sins
    Have you ever seen God
    With your own eyes?

    {Bridge]
    We are embers in the the flame
    We are whispers in God's name
    We're the heat that burns your skin
    We’re the cold that lets pain in
    We’re the wind that blinds your eyes
    We’re the shame that haunts your lies
    We’re the nightmare when you sleep
    We’re the guilt that all men keep


    [Chorus]
    When the sky came down
    When the sun went dark
    When the night was torn
    And we heard God laugh
    When the Righteous came
    And they cleansed our sins
    Have you ever seen me
    With your own eyes?

  21. Ken Pudsey

  26. Balázs Dukát

    Is this about the Fremen?

  27. nova estrella

    Last year I was with friends at a concert of Gary Numan in Utrecht in Holland. About 300 fans...no more. A disgrace and it says enough about the taste of the average Dutch people.

    Not sure if I'm "hard core." He basically saved my life in the early 80s. I don't like all of his stuff, but I listen to it- never saw him live- not a concert guy. Been known to dress like him on Halloween, read all of the biographies (that I know of), covers, tributes. Still play "Cars" when we get new cars (G35x, FXT, X5: great cars.) But the guy has had SUCH an influence on me! :-)

  35. Michael Wardwell

    Love the mixed duet with daughter haunting waves after waves of bliss and extacy keep going up my back, when an artist has early success it can give way to experiment and boundaries pushing pure ahead of time genius. And not just one good song it started with two I had to listen to daily now it's five faves I love his of hits me film exc.

    It’s about atheist living in the barren wasteland of earth left by destructive religious men. It’s absolute hate of men who follow any of the Abrahamic religions.

    Gary Numan has gone edgy, and I kinda like it. Screw it, I really like it.

  52. Old-Man Parker

    We hide from the world of man
    From the cruelty that defines you
    We are the wind that cries
    We are the dead Ghost Nation

  53. Dean Winchester's Wolf

    We live in a windswept hell
    Where dust and death are neighbours
    We hide in a perfect storm
    Not even God remembers

    We ran from the wars of man
    From everything you are and would be
    We are invisible
    We are the dead Ghost Nation

    When the sky came down

    When the night was torn
    And we heard God laugh
    When "The Righteous" came
    And they cleansed our sins
    Have you ever seen death with your own eyes?

    We live in The Great Unfound
    Where thought and ghost still wander
    We drift on drifting sand
    Where horrors of our past still linger

    We hide from the world of man
    From the cruelty of that defines you

  67. AussieGainsGaming

    If Bowie and Reznor created a clone of both their DNA, this is the music I imagine that clone would make! And I for one am.not.complaining.at.all! Thank you for this masterpiece Gary.

    "Ghost Nation"

    We live in a windswept hell
    Where dust and death are neighbours
    We hide in a perfect storm
    Not even God remembers

    We are invisible
    We are the dead Ghost Nation

    When the sky came down

    We hide from the world of man
    From the cruelty of that defines you

  82. Dieter wtm

    Das geht echt mal schwierig....
    Naja, egal... Ich dachte, dass wäre egal.

  83. SassePhoto

    Outstanding! When are you coming to Vancouver?

  84. christopher p

    Will always be a fan but where is/are the bass/low frequencies in these tracks? Am I the only one who notices how much better his recent albums sound live? It's because the low end is there live!

    Liam Cahill

    Its because of YouTubes low pass filter

  85. krzyll anu

    Gary, daje po garach!

  86. kdchmln

    it deeply saddens me that gary numan went from having such a great sound in the 70s and 80s to sounding like a second rate trent reznor for the last 30 years. i want to see him live but i don't think i can handle hearing songs from his first couple albums with shitty 90s industrial metal guitars and drum machines all over everything. eesh. he's still got a great voice though.

  87. Yehela

    What this song is about?
