Ghost In The Mist

  • Lyrics
  • Vocalist Cristina Scabbia explained the song's meaning to TeamRock: "This is about someone who feels alone, a no-one in the world, abandoned and damaged," she said. "The ghost in the mist is the perfect representation of that. The ghost is something you don't see, and the mist clouds it even more. It's about feeling very small."
