Hey Guys!
I'm FINALLY back with some new music as I have been in the process of writing, producing and rearranging my new EP "Seven" since July 2010. I can now say that I got all of the seven song finished - they just need a little tweaking and a tiny breeze of perfectionism to be finished.
The song I'd like to present to you today is called "Ghost" and it tries to warn people of information technology, especially the Internet and the dangers about its usage. It talks about "ghosts" that can see you AND everything you do - however, they are completely invisible for your eyes so you don't know someone could be watching you and/or mistreating your private information. In fact, the only one's responsible for your private data is you!

CHORDS: Gm A# F all the way through

Lyrics
[Intro]
Booo! Oohh! Booo! Hooo!
Booo! Oohh! Booo! Hooo!
Booo! Oohh! Booo! Hooo!
Booo! Oohh! Booo! Hooo!

[Verse]
I'm the ghost that's coming from the west
I'm the ghost that's seeing you undressed
I'm the ghost that's sending you to jail
I'm the ghost that's looking for detail

I'm the ghost that's coming from the east
I'm the ghost that wants your disease
I'm the ghost that's knowing no farewell
I'm the ghost that's revealing your shell

[Chorus]
You stay, you stay
Online, online
You stay, you stay
Online, online

You stay, you stay
Online, online
You stay, you stay
Online, online

[Post-Chorus]
You stay online
You stay online
You stay online
You stay online

[Break]
Online, online, online, online
Online, online, online, online

[Verse]
I'm the ghost that's coming from the south
I'm the ghost that's smiling like your mouth
I'm the ghost that's watching you in light
I'm the ghost that's exposing you at night

I'm the ghost that's coming from the north
I'm the ghost that travels back and forth
I'm the ghost that's eating your brain
I'm the ghost that's pulling your chain

[Chorus]
You stay, you stay
Online, online
You stay, you stay
Online, online

You stay, you stay
Online, online
You stay, you stay
Online, online

[Post-Chorus]
You stay online
You stay online
You stay online
You stay online

[Break]
Online, online, online, online
Online, online, online, online

[Bridge]
I am the ghost
And you are my toast
I don't come from the coast
'Cause you are my host

I am the ghost
And you are my toast
I don't come from the coast
'Cause you are my host

[Chorus]
You stay, you stay
Online, online
You stay, you stay
Online, online

You stay, you stay
Online, online
You stay, you stay
Online, online

[Chorus]
You stay, you stay
Online, online
You stay, you stay
Online, online

You stay, you stay
Online, online
You stay, you stay
Online, online

[Post-Chorus]
You stay online
You stay online
You stay online
You stay online

[Ending]
Booo! Oohh! Booo! Hooo!
Booo! Oohh! Booo! Hooo!
Booo! Oohh! Booo! Hooo!
Booo! Oohh! Booo! Hooo!

i'm listening in!
Got your number, and i'm keeping tabs! No more original works aimed at eroding my intrusive power base!

No, really, an effective song, this. Imagine that this took a lot of putting together, or maybe i am just measuring my meagre abilities against this!

A song with a point, and a well-made and pertinent one.

thank you so much! the funny thing about writing this song was that the point evolved when the song was already finished. i was looking for a reason for these lyrics and then BAM i finally found one as i was humming the "you stay you stay online online" over and over.
thank you for the kind comment and for your listen!

I believe people realize
that they have no more secrets. You can find where a person lives and how much their house cost. You, occasionally, run into someone so savvy that after a few seconds contact the stranger asks about your kid or knows your stats in scrabble. Now, how did he find that out? I was added to some hokey site where you can call and listen to recorded celebrity messages. When I was charged through my phone bill, it was a month beyond join up date. The first person I spoke to asked me if this was my social security number, my maiden name, etc. I reported that company and they got their lawyer to make sure I wouldn't make any trouble. The person who hacked into pay pal, before I ever used it, logged in from Syria. So, pay pal discontinued my account.
Any way, the threat is real and you can be victimized even if you do nothing risky. Good song. I like the music, especially. Thanks.

wow i'm so sorry for what happened to you. that's the problem with the internet here as well. sometimes it's just the "ghost" that's acting for you because there might be some tiny details that a user overlooked when clicking on a button or entering his personal data. i hate it that so many criminals use the vulnerability of the internet for their criminal actions. and that's what my song should make people aware of - even though it's not your fault in the end...i hope it all figured out well for you in the end!
Thank you for your kind comment AND for telling your story! everyone that reads through the comments here will appreciate it.

Lukas, I heard this on your website several weeks back, really like it. This is not typically in my wheelhouse musically but I recognize talent when I hear it. You have "something" man! You seem to be a "lightning rod" around here...all I can say is I don't know many who can do what you do as well as you do it...and your just a kid!...Really digging it my friend! Keep marching forward, the sky's the limit.

hi lukas. really excellent production and a very catchy riff throughout. your lyrics are smart and your delivery of them is perfect. the song needs some variation though - it becomes repetitive and needs to either go to different places with different chord progressions, or add more textures with what you have...or shorten it.

thank you for complimenting on the lyrics! in the end it was like 10 minutes of writing it and that's why i'm so happy about it 'cause it's so great it turned out so well in just that short period of writing it.
and thank you for the input on the songwriting as well! i knew from the beginning that the song was like too "boring" but i kinda sticked to it, even though i added just 2 new elements in the last chorus...i'm maybe trying to add some more textures but the problem here is that the song's already cluttered but i'm definitely giving it a try!
THANK YOU so much!

Scarey good. DeathArrow! Your singing has gotten really really good! Great vibrato. The production is top notch, I mean really. I can't think of a single comment, and that is very unusual. The harmonies are totally out of sight. Are you using a vocal doubler? Auto harmonizer? It sounds like it, they are just too perfect. If not, kudo's to you my friend.

thank you soo much for your kind comment i don't know even what to say. indeed, i practiced a lot for the improvement of my singing. but there's also a little technical secret for the backings. no one can record them perfectly pitched right away so the little tool i use is called melodyne! you should really have a look. you can pitch every note perfectly so it's no problem if your singing is not perfect or good enough.
i personally don't use melodyne a lot. i use it to pitch the backings heavily and for the lead i add just a little bit of pitch correction.
i actually don't use a vocal doubler! i rerecord the lead vox several times and use this as my backings. and then i add the harmonies. i don't like doubling a lot. it causes phase problems and take a lot more time to do then just recording those vocals 2 times more.

Brilliantly 'sing along'
catchy lyrics and vocal. Very impressed with how much you have improved in such a short time. This is a very pro sounding radio ready production to my ears.
Cheers

nice work! I can tell you spent some quality time on this. With having had the experience with doing the cover of Never Wanna be Like Them, and having heard your mixing techniques on that one, I can appreciate this one a lot more. Really like the concept. The entire sound is really full and well thought out.

Great sound you get with this one Lukas. I like the way you're incorporating contemporary club sounds into this, but keeping it recognisably your own work. Excellent!

i like it. as with all of your stuff, it's catchy as hell, just enough indie in the dance to legitimize it but it would play perfectly in the clubs. my one criticism, and this is based upon my high opinion of your past work, is that you're getting too good at production. With all that melodyne there's just a hop and a skip from this to hannah montanna. which might be cool with you, and if so, great. but imo it's too slick.

hey it's great to hear from you again ;)
thanks for the kind words and for the criticism as well! i always like when there's something to complain about. and thanks for complimenting on my production skills. well i like figured out that it's all about listening, comparing and copying. that's the key to a professionally produced song. but i think my songs are far from being professionally produced.
haha for the slickness i want to tell you that the overdone editing on this song is a desired effect - because Lady Gaga inspired me to write that song and her voice is tuned a lot in most songs.
i can calm you down for the rest of my new EP cause this is the only song where the voice is edited that much. i went for a very natural sound for my new album. there's just one other song with heavy editing but it's just for one verse and i think that's ok :D
THANK YOU AND CHEEEERS!

This has the feel of a pro-level production. lots of fun and creativity with vox and sounds, but altogether tight and very polished. I actually totally enjoyed this!
