This haunting song finds Brent Smith looking at himself in the mirror and not recognizing who he sees. Drummer Barry Kerch told Alternative Addiction: “It’s about looking through the haze and getting things clear and again it’s autobiographical from Brent. He couldn’t see things clearly from the haze of booze, pills or whatever but now he’s come through all that.”
A heavily orchestrated song without any normal drums, it was decided that rather than getting Barry Kerch to play the kettle drums the band would sample them. He explained to Alternative Addiction: “I could have done it because I have played them before but it’s fairly tough to play timpani. We could have hired someone to play it, but it would have been difficult to keep it in tune and we didn’t have the time. We did the same with the upright chimes; it would have taken too long for us to do them and it would’ve cost too much. We would never have got the correct overtones and there would have been far too many variables.” @Songfacts.

Shinedown – Through The Ghost Lyrics:
Speak of the devil, look who just walked into the room.
The guilted and faded notion of someone I once knew.
All the perfect moments are wrong.
All the precious pieces are gone.
Everthing that mattered is just a city of dust…covering both of us.
Did you hide yourself away?
I can’t see you anymore.
Did you eclipsed another day?
I used to wake up to the color of your soul.
Did you hide yourself away?
Are you living through the ghost?
Did you finally find a place above the shadows
So, the world will never know…
The world will never know you like I do.
So many silent sorrows you’ll never hear from again
And now that you lost tomorrow,
Is yesterday still a friend?
All the bridges we built were burned,
Not a single lesson was learned.
Everything that mattered is just a city a dust…covering both of us.
Did you hide you yourself away?
I can’t see you anymore.
Did you eclipse another day?
I used to wake up to the color of your soul.
Did you hide yourself away?
Are you living through the ghost?
Did you finally find a place above the shadow
So, the world will never know…
The world will never know you…like I do.
Like I still do…
Did you hide yourself away?
I can’t see you anymore.
Did you eclipse another day?
I used to wake up to the color of your soul.
Color of your soul…
Did you hide yourself away?
Are you living through the ghost?
Did you finally find a place above the shadow
So, the world will never know…
The world will never know you.
