The Knells: Poltergeist

Poltergeist is a song about letting our lesser selves get the better of us — repeatedly. It's a song about addiction, unhealthy obsessions, or any other type of self-defeating compulsion. It's also a song about choices: will you "cast the salt and burn the sage," and take the action necessary to cleanse your soul of this self-destructive behavior, or does its familiarity somehow provide you comfort and certainty, if at the expense of your spiritual well-being?
