The Skeleton Song
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

One day my skeletons appeared
And I knew where they were coming from
Hung by a rope I volunteered
And I never thought the day would come
Some boundaries I once overstepped
Shortcomings I must now accept
Secrets that could not be kept
I wish my skeletons had slept

You're not being honest really
You're really not and ought to be
Take an honest look at yourself
Try a little honesty

To further add to my demise
Demons never exorcised
Appeared before my very eyes
To no one's just my own suprise
A scenario just so surreal
Demons once so well concealed
Were now throughout my whole ordeal
So real and painfully revealed

You're not being honest really
You're really not and ought to be
Take an honest look at yourself
Try a little honesty
You're not being honest really
And honestly you've never been
You ought to take a look at yourself
Let the honesty begin

In flew the accusations, the razor-toothed insinuations
Each ghost my own creation, and every monster my invention
Beasts they came to burden, hell I let whatever stirred in
And I couldn't get a word in, at this unearthly intervention

They let up when they knew they got through
They knew I'd never be the same
With little left to say or do
They left as quickly as they came
The life was scared half out of me
Some way somehow I survived
A part of me was proud of me
The day my skeletons arrived

You're not being honest really
You're really not and ought to be
Take an honest look at yourself
Try a little honesty,try a little honesty
