BackgroundEdit

Hello yes i have taken my two hardest-to-sound-decent vocaloids and put them together for a duet isn't that just dandy of me [smacks self upside the head].

It's february and i'm writing halloween-ish songs (because every day is a day for halloween! \m/). Though i have done a lot of snow-shoveling in the past week or two so i guess this is still appropriate for the season.

"Dance with the Dead" is an original song composed by ghostie with OLIVER and YOHIOloid.

The original upload was deleted after ghostie's hiatus, but a remastered version with Fukase and Dex was posted in March 2016 in response to fans clamoring for its return. This version was a joke and was later deleted.[1]

On May 10, 2016, Ghost's friend Antorii made a parody of this song about a recently thought up character, Junior Elsner, who is listed as Frances' run away husband and the father of Henry Elsner. But as an inside joke got out of hand, Junior became a joke, he also became a bird. And thus, Antorii made this parody to celebrate him. There is a full wiki page on Ghost's Communications Wiki about this story.[2]

LyricsEdit

dig up those who've died

underneath the ground there's a muffled sound
heartbeats beating for a lifeless crowd
mixed in with the dead, hear it in your head
hear us, sing with us!
pounding in your ears it's the sound of fun
twirling with our pals 'till the night is done
it's a good 'ol time every now and then
hear us, dance with us!

everybody gather 'round the shovel
spin in a spiral form
ha ha, it's a happy song
gore, soil, decay and more!
everybody, now we'll sing together
louder and louder, more
ho ho, it's a happy song
we all fall down!

everybody seems to enjoy themselves
underneath the stars, we are dancing
i held hands with someone i haven't seen
i never knew no good, what's in the spirit world
uh-oh, here we go
you now belong to me
your body never free
i don't know what you mean
uh-oh, here we go

everybody gather 'round the shovel
spin in a spiral form
ha ha, it's a happy song
gore, soil, decay and more!
everybody, now we'll sing together
louder and louder, more
ho ho, it's a happy song
we all fall down!

everybody gather 'round the shovel
spin in a spiral form
ha ha, it's a funny song
i'll never be the same
everybody, please, take caution now
i'm not sure what's happening
ho ho, this surreal song
we all fall down!

the silence penetrates me
it's getting hard to breathe
i can't see anything here
inside his eyes
the monsters comming for me
it's getting hard to feel
the numbing spreading through me
inside his mind
the static generating
it's easier to breathe
i see a world before me
inside my eyes
this child keeps on crying
it's easier to feel
my voice speaks out to him
"it's a shame!"

everybody gather 'round the shovel
spin in a spiral form
ha ha, it's a happy song
gore, soil, decay and more
everybody, now we'll sing together
louder and louder, more
ho ho, it's a happy song
we all fall down

you're amongst the living
you are not excused from insanity
ha ha, it's a happy song
your body and your demise
you will not decay so
there's no need to cry, little boy of mine
ho ho, it's a happy song
you never fall

everyone's falling six feet under
spinning in a spiral form
ha ha, unsere fröhlich Leid
(ha ha, our merry suffering)
i think that this is the end!
everyone, we will keep on singing
louder and louder, more
ho ho, unsere fröhlich Leid
(ho ho, our merry suffering)
we all fall down!
