Lyrics:
See me comin' to town with my soul
Straight down out of the world with my fingers
Holdin' on to the devil I know
All my troubles'll hang on your trigger
Take your eyes and your mind from the road
Shoot your mouth off, you know where you're aimin'
Don't forget to pick up what you sow
Talkin' trash to the garbage around you

See me kickin' the door with my boots
Broke down out in a ditch of old rubbish
Snakes and bones in the back of your room
Handing out a confection of venom
Heaven's drunk from the poison you use
Charm the wolves with the eyes of a gambler
Now I see it's a comfort to you
Hammer my bones on the anvil of daylight

I won't give up that ghost
It's sick the way these tongues are twisted
The good in us, all we know
There's too much left to taste that's bitter

I won't give up that ghost
It's sick the way these tongues are twisted
The good in us, all we know
There's too much left to taste that's bitter

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Ah ooh
Ah ooh
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
 
The Song:

"Ghost Range" is another remix of "E-Pro." This one was done by the group, Homelife. It's a more cluttered remix of the song, with all sorts of effects, Asian-sounding stringed instruments, synthesizer gurgles, a cool cello/viola break, and then some nasty bass playing the guitar riff of the original.

Homelife, as you can tell, decided to add their own music, with the idea of this being as close as they could to getting to collaborate with Beck. They replayed a few riffs, added some of their own, and tried to stay away from the "computer world" sound. It is this naturalness which makes "Ghost Range" one of my favorite remixes.

This remix is on the UK "E-Pro" single, as well as available for purchase on iTunes. It is also the "E-Pro" remix on Guerolito.
