But something goes terribly awry, casting our heroine into a comatose state. She's finally resuscitated only when she's discovered by two friendly space travelers, who then help her complete the rest of her mission. The main aspect of 'The Ghost Inside' is a depiction of a woman who "gives it up, for that dollar." One could hypothesize that prostitution was on Broken Bells' minds when they wrote this, but the video hints that it might be something more about searching for fame -- or a quick, yet expensive getaway at the very least.
"We try to shy away from giving too literal of meanings on songs," Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) tells Spinner about 'The Ghost Inside.' "There's three different of kind of melodies and sections in the song itself. There's [James] doing the falsetto and then there's the doubled kind of bridge and then there's the outro that really sounds like, you know, very James Mercer. It turned into this longer song, but it was one of the last songs we did."
