You forgot to script that the best impulse is running
No cue that to survive is the science of well-being
Because shaking the pillars of heaven will cause some demons to fall
And the best defense is to obey and to know nothing at all

A fragile stage constructed on a fantasy drawn in
the simple realization that the demon is within
It always begins very small but burns up in a flash
Your unsung hero is a phoenix still black in the ash

John Carpenter, it’s haunting you
You can cut or keep the camera on
You might escape,
But the horrors keep on coming,
Should you wake - try running

Are you aware you are nowhere
No comfort in the world can seem
As real as this dystopian dream

If your will won’t bend
You have reached the end
Now your hero sits in ash
And the screen fades to black

John Carpenter, it’s haunting you
You can cut, or keep the camera on
You might escape,
But the horrors keep on coming,
Should you wake - try running

Palm Ghosts is the sound of an 80s prom in a war zone…located in the dead heart of country music, Nashville, TN.

More at home in rainy Manchester, the quartet weaves cinematic dream pop and new wave with brooding post punk.

Embracing their 80’s idols, like New Order, The Cure, David Bowie, John Carpenter and even Divine, Palm Ghosts take the genre to soaring new heights.
