Deadmau5 – Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff lyrics

Rob Swire vocals:

it’s been so long I’ve been out of my body with you
I feel alone, feel at home, feel like nothing is true
she took me to a place where my senses gave-way
turn it round, shut it down, what the people say
climbing up, killing time, let them give you some
take my hand and let it come, let it come, let it…
take it back when she knows that your doing it right
cuz everybody else knows what their taking tonight
but I just wanna play it right
we’re gonna get there tonight!
it’s been so far, I’ve been walking the line on my own
lift me up to the stars, we are coming home
I only had a chase, but were out of time
we are souls in the cold, physical design
set me free, set me out on the run
lift me up to the sun, to the sun, to the…
we are burning down, we are burning down
it’s the way that you fake it, I know it’s too late
but I just want to play it right
we’re gonna get there tonight!
I just want to take you down
we’re gonna get there tonight!
but I just want to play it right
we’re gonna get there tonight!

it’s been so long I’ve been out of my body with you
I feel alone, feel at home, feel like nothing is true
she took me to a place where my senses gave-way
turn it round, shut it down, what the people say
climbing up, killing time, let them give you some
take my hand and let it come, let it come, let it…

take it back when she knows that your doing it right
cuz everybody else knows what their taking tonight

but I just wanna play it right
we’re gonna get there tonight!

it’s been so far, I’ve been walking the line on my own
lift me up to the stars, we are coming home
I only had a taste, but were out of time
we are souls in the cold, physical design
set me free, set me out on the run
lift me up to the sun, to the sun, to the…

we are burning down, we are burning down
it’s the way that you fake it, I know it’s too late

but I just want to play it right
we’re gonna get there tonight!

I just want to take you down
we’re gonna get there tonight!

but I just want to play it right
we’re gonna get there tonight!

The original vocals:

“At the present moment I’m not recording, I’m not on tour, I’ve never had a song who’s number 1 on Beatport. I’ve never been featured on JunoDownload or Trackitdown. I’ve never released vinyl but what I do know is that I’ve been listening to elictronica for many years and I’ve every right to speak my mind against the fabricated music that is being released on a daily basis. It’s absolutely appalling! All these people think that if you’re on the Beatport top 10 then you’re making something out of yourself, well your making a mockery out of electronic music! I’m a producer and I come from the underground, and I’m quite frankly I’m sick and tired! And I’m here to go on these rants on messageboards because I know I’ll never mount to anything and I need to make myself feel better so when I’m not high on cocaine I’ll sit in front of this computer till the cows come home and continue ranting and raving about artists that actually living out their dreams because I never will!”

He did it again. Lovely face melter! Btw, Deadmau5 playing in Iceland 19. dec 2008 (and he pwned the place)!

Updates:

  1. This post previously only contained the original vocals but now there is a new version out featuring Rob Swire from Pendulum. I disagree with the lyrics I found on another site so I decided to make my own. It’s a little bit fuzzy so feel free to share your interpretation.
  2. @DAN: Cheers, fixed it.
  3. Adapted mostly to T-Bags version of the lyrics. After countless rounds of listening I gave up and asked couple of my friends about the lyrics and most of them agreed on T-Bags version. However most agreed that it was “we’re gonna…” instead of “we, you gonna…” in the chorus.
  4. 31. jan 2011: changed “I only had a chase, …” to “I only had a taste, …”. Thanx for the input InternetGuy, ThunderPwny, ntrval & pablo!

  1. He’s characterizing and making fun of the mediocre producers/DJs that that flame him on forums and those that hold grudge for his success. Cocky&Funny.

  2. thx, though imho i found some errors, here’s my fixed version:

    it’s been so long I’ve been out of my body with you
    I feel alone, feel at home, feel like nothing is true
    she took me to a place where my senses gave-way
    turn it round, shut it down, what the people say
    climbing up, killing time, let them give you some,
    take my hand and let it come, let it come, let it…

    take it back when she knows that your doing it right
    cuz everybody else knows what their taking tonight

    but I just wanna play it right
    we, you gonna get there tonight!

    it’s been so far, I’ve been walking the line on my own
    lift me up to the stars, we are coming home
    I only had a chase, but were out of time
    we are souls in the cold physical design
    set me free, set me out on the run
    lift me up to the sun, to the sun, to the…

    we are burning down, we are burning down
    it’s the way that you fake it, i know it’s too late

    but I just want to play it right
    we, you gonna get there tonight!

    I just want to take you down
    we, you gonna bring you round

    but I just want to play it right
    we, you gonna get there tonight!

  3. OMFG!!!!!111 Just watched the latest installment of CSI Las Vegas (10×02 Ghost Town) and the intro blew me away! Instead of the regular “Who” song it came with this track, the camera swooping across Las Vegas and ending up in the bathroom of a woman where a puny little ghetto blaster on the sink is blaring as the bass fades from the soundtrack. Excellent!

  4. Yeah T-Bag, I was about to post the actual lyrics…Seems these half assed ones have been floating around the net for a year and nobody has even corrected the mistakes.

  5. “I only had a chase”

    I believe he says I only had a taste..
    But I could be wrong..

  6. This song was the shit at ULTRAAAA miami!!! wwwwwoooooooo 2011 IBIZA SPAIN here i come!!!=)

  7. I agree with Internet Guy. It seems like he says “I only had a taste” not “chase”.

    Really it would make way more sense too.

  8. Second ThunderPwny statement. Also “we’re gonna get there tonight!” should probably be we are. Pedantic – yes.

  9. i agree with the internet guy and thunderpwny, the line should be:

    I only had a taste, but we’re out of time

  10. Love the rant at the end, came here just to read the whole thing. Its one of those things that adds to the song and is pretty funny as well.

  11. Don’t agree with the changed lyrics, it doesn’t make sense IMO.

    we, are gonna get there tonight.. etc works more than we, you
