Catahulla I love this album. As Danny says, very diverse with a common thread running through all of them. Pop, darkness and some downright oddness. Great stuff! Everyone will have their favourites. Favorite track: Dementia (Down In The Old Grey Park).

about

Leaving With Ghosts NRW, Germany

"One of the big challenges for me on The ANGELS IN MY ATTIC was that the songs were all quite diverging
sonically, even though they came from the same state of mind“, says Leaving With Ghosts' singer
and songwriter Danny Elevator. „Leaving
With Ghosts“ contrast pop-appeal with enough weirdness to turn this diverse record into a stunning
experience. Rafa Skudro delivers the rhythmic icing!

Track Name: Drowning
i wished I could swim
inside your head again
but I'm drowning for the best
I think you don't see me
I think you don't see me
Like you used to
No surface to cling to
I'm drowning where are you?

we try to hold on but
we just keep on floating
without ever touching anything
I can't sleep
because you are sleepig
while I'm wide awake without you


we used to not know
where one ends and the other begins
but now these walls
that we live in just picture the
present and future
and nothing remains
but these walls surrounding us
Track Name: She Said You Ruined Her Valentine's Day
She said you ruined her Valentine's Day


She said you ruined her Valentine's Day
for the second time and it will never go away.
This will be remembered for today
and for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever

You know she can be a devil.
You can tell her and she smiles
like a saint or the omniscient Brother Cavil;
nothing to repent,but she has, but she does! (x2)


She keeps on runnin', runnin' away
from herself and all the others,
especially from you,
but you know you love her anyway.

She keeps on runnin', runnin' away
from herself and all the others,
especially from you,
but you, you know you love her anyway.

Anyway, anyway
Anyway, anyway,

anyway.....
Track Name: Just Like This Weather
Goodbye isn't always forever
It comes and goes just like this weather
Goodbye isn't always forever
It comes and goes just like bad weather
Goodbye isn't always forever
It comes and goes like a part-time lover
Track Name: The Promise
The Promise

You promised me we'd never part
You promised me the world would end
if life could be as hard
not to leave us hand in hand

You promised me the end of the world
You promised me the antichrist
You promised me the pain would cease
But everything goes on and on

Where is the end you promised me?
- You promised me an end to this
You promised me the antichrist
- You promised me the pain would cease

You said I'd always be the one
- You said you'd never love anyone
Like you love me but here I am now:
Just another motherfucker with a broken heart

You promised me we'd never part
You promised me the world would end
if life could be as hard
not to leave us hand in hand

You promised me the end of the world
You promised me the antichrist
You promised me the pain would cease
But everything goes on and on

I wanna see the end of the world
You promised me an end to this
I wanna see the end of the world
I don't give a fuck about a happy-ending

I wanna see the end of the world
You said there was an end to this
You promised me, you promised me
You promised me an end.
Track Name: Love Is Just Competition
Love is just competition

Something never changes about
all the things you do
You always show me that you don't
really want me to be with you
Something never changes about
all the things you do
You always show me that I should
stay away from you

something inside is growing
next to dominance and rape
it's a tiny little hope
I might find the courage to escape

deep in my heart
I used to love you
but I did not realize
Now I know, I can never fall in love again

There is something about all the things you do
that shows me that I really shouldn't be
in love
with you

Love is just competition
I really loved her in 1976
Love is just competition
I really loved her in 1976

Something about all the things you do
you always show me that you don't
really want me to be
with you
Something never changes about
all the things you
You always show me that I should
Stay away from you


I really loved her in 1976
Love is just competition
(I really loved her in 1976)
Love is just competition

But something inside is growning
next to dominance and rape
it's a tiny little hope
I might find the courage to escape
Something about all the things you do
shows me that I really shouldn't be
in love
with you

Love is just competition
Love is just competition

There is something about me
you may not really know
but there's a part of me
that's urging me to pack my things and go
Track Name: Out-Of-Body Experience
There is something in between
in between these walls
you never quite know what to call
but you know it's here

There is something in between
in between these walls
take my hand
or you will never know

a ghost, a ghost
a ghost, a ghost
a ghost, a ghost
ghost, ghost

There is something in my heart
Something in my high
that always turns on me
whenever I think of you
I try to hold on
but just keep on floating
without ever touching anything
ever touching anything

Don’t don’t don’t Don't be afraid
I’m just an unconscious ghost
Don’t don’t don’t Don't be afraid
I’m just an unconscious ghost

A ghost
just a ghost
a ghost
just a ghost
just a ghost
I'M HERE!

Voices from the left
voices from the right
voices from the front
and voices from behind
Do you ever feel
like you're a ghost?
Everyday,
everyday!

Don’t don’t don’t Don't be afraid
I’m just an unconscious ghost
Don’t don’t don’t Don't be afraid
I’m just an unconscious ghost

Just a ghost
I'm here
Just a ghost...
Track Name: The Angels In My Attic
The angels in my attic
they continue to whisper
"The best things always die,
The best things always have to die..."


les cadavres de mes jours
marquent ma route et je les pleures
Track Name: Dementia (Down In The Old Grey Park)
Meet me at 9
in the old frail park
in the old grey park

Slo-motion memories of bitter dreams
conjuring up old deities

Meet me at 9
in the old frail park
in the old grey park

Memories on celluloid
black and white on acetate

Dementia, my only love!
Dementia, my chosen one!
Dementia, Dementia,
embracing loneliness, embracing you!

And how I dream of lucid dreams
but I just never wake
and can't control my thoughts
and can't control my thoughts

I bought flowers, because
it was Valentine's Day
and now they're shrinking
and catching dust on the shelve

the time, the time
it passes on like it's an enemy
he's invisible
but I can see him in my face

the horror, the horror,
it passes on like it's an enemy
he's invisible
but I can see him in my face

Dementia, my only love!
Dementia, my chosen one!
Dementia, Dementia,
embracing loneliness, embracing you!

I fear I'm growing old
and cold and all is told
there's no song to keep me here
you always were the animal

this is where it all comes down
you left me here, I'm on my own

You're just playing a part
You're just playing a part

Dementia, my only love!
Dementia, my chosen one!
Dementia, Dementia,
embracing loneliness, embracing you!
