Michael Jackson was truly a genius | Reviewer: Winston Jordan | 4/19/13
Sadly it took him being taken from us to realize this.
This song has been out since 1997 and people are just starting to pay attention to it.
To the ordinary listener, one might go 'What the hell is he talking about?'
But these who think more figuratively, it's quite clear this song was a cry for help.
He was saying he was lonely, and tired of being made to be something he isn't.
"So you if you wanna see eccentricities, I'll be grotesque before your eyes"
In other words, "you're going to form your own opinion of me regardless of what I say."
The entire reason I've been an fan for 30 years is the fact that MJ's lyrics were never direct or literal, you always had to think to wonder exactly what was he trying to say.
Listen at the way he rips into the lyric
"Am I scary for you, boy?"
towards the end, you can hear the pain in his voice.
This song was deeper than we realized. It was a cry for help and we didn't listen
You are not scary for me, Michael! | Reviewer: YFL | 3/24/13
Michael, I hope you are singing for your Lord, the only one who will really love you. When you cry "Am I scary for you", I'm crying because you're not scary for me anymore!! I'm sorry because I did think you looked strange later in your life. But when I did some research about you and listen to some of your works, I found you were treated very unjustly by the media and attacked by malicious people, who wanted to enslave you for money and their own greed ,and destroy you when they could never control you. You are not scary for me, Michael! I don't love you nor hate you blindly without reasons. I appreciate your art, because you were a real artist. I appreciate your poetic song, because you were a real poet. That's the real you, your words really touch my heart. And I cry in many songs you wrote for the people and the world you cared when you were struggling to be alive. You tried to be the voice of the voiceless. And the people who tried to destroy you are scared of your works, which are real beautiful and truthful, meaningful and inspirational. The Holy Land is torn by greed... People are worshiping Money... They 1% dont really care about us 99%.... And I must say that you are the "Little Susie", arent you?

Michael was saying that he was tired of everyone villifying him. He was saying that the media wants to turn him into a monster. If that's what you want to see instead of the truth, then that's what you'll believe. Instead, if you look closer, you'll see that he's lonley and innocent. That's what he's saying. It's very, very clear in this long and in the full version of Ghosts.

To the idiot who just posted as 'michael jackson', I hate to tell you this, but you blew it with your attrocious spelling. Michael would know the difference between 'hear' and 'here'. Go back to school. He'd want you to get a good education not sit on the internet wasting your life.

Hello everyone, its me, just like to say i love you all with all my heart, but i have decided that i need a break from my life, rest assured i have not passed away, do not believe what you here in the tabloids, i am here and i love you all. I will be back soon. MJ
genius... | Reviewer: soyoung | 12/28/11
MJ truly was a genius.
Stunning versatility, outrageous originality.
That irony that his stunning commercial success led him to be unfairly regarded by some as nothing more than a product of commercial hype and caused his artistic integrity to be undermined is nothing less than a crime.

Do u know him or did you saw his dead body? NO! Then please dear don't say things that you are not aware of, ok? He explain through his lyrics, films etc why he would do this - dissapear. I don't wanna hurt anybody because I know your reasons - he would never leave his children - but truth is he did not leave his children. He will be back soon, probably at the end of 2012. You'll see all! And you'll know then all the reasons. What I can tell is that it has to do with his main message love, peace, a better world. Again, you will see!
This song. | Reviewer: Rosie | 4/4/11
This song has gotten me through so much. I've never been able to decipher what exactly he was trying to say in this song, but it's an obvious cry for help. This was the first song by Michael to literally pull me in and make my soul dance. I don't know if it's the trashing drums or the riveting guitar, but when I first heard it on Christmas Eve of 09, I fell in love. Something in it makes me instantly feel peaceful and serene. He throws his everything into this song and it shows how great he truly was. I just fall in love with him all over again every time I hear it, and it will always be my favorite.

someone asked up there was mj alive? no he isnt. mj would never fake his death. its sad that after all the suffering his children, family, and close friends went through people are still making dumb judgements. people just need to just stop making lies cause he has died and people wont leave him alone. they even had a funeral where his daughter made a heartbreaking speech and in the oprah interview the kids talked about their favorite memories. and think bout it. WHO ON EARTH WOULD FAKE THEIR DEATH IF THEY HAD CHILDREN?? SO NOOOOOO HE ISNT.
divinity in motion | Reviewer: bob | 11/22/10
i love michael...but does he make up alot of words?!
Eccentrialities? what does it mean?
disrespectable?! (tabloid junkie)though to be fair you can kind of infer the meaning of that one.
love the lyrics though...some of his best
... to me its about seeing as a child does
esp. love the lyric 'i'm gonna be exactly what you wanna see' because it encapsulates all that it means to be predjudiced...and not see like a child
'absolute greatness' your right that skeleton dancing looks incredible, its 'divinity in motion'
Is It scary | Reviewer: Keisha | 5/28/10
I;m ashamed that I just came to realise the existence of this song.Since my frist time listening to it, I cant stop it!! I love this song very much and the lyrics are clear enough!! Who is scary? Michael Jackson or the media? Look within your heart, then ask.. I've never seen someone who been vilified/crucified so much in a life. I felt his pain and I love you more,Michael
Amazing.... | Reviewer: Midna | 4/26/10
I absoloutly LOVE this song, but thats no suprise, every michael jackson song was truly inspiring, and he really made his mark as the king of pop. I believe that he is one of the amzing people that humans worldwide will remember for the rest of their lives. He really made a change in music...and he was always so interested in love, and peace, and he even said that he wrote certain songs to make a sense of awareness in people. To make a change. I think that he was an amazing musician, and an amazing person.
“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” -Michael Jackson 1958-2009
He will always live on in our hearts..

A great song. | Reviewer: Wikkler | 2/18/10
This is genious. For some reason, almost all of his songs sound like I've heard them before his death, including this one. The music is so strong, and his voice, when it's dark it sounds like he's a monster, but when it lightens up, you see some light. This song is a message to the peoples: Don't judge people by their appearance, and don't lie.
