Track Name: Mr. Skinny Bones
It's Mr. Skinny Bones. He's talking in tongues only native to himself.
I ask "what's new?"
His reply, "A thousand miles doesn't seem to change a thing."

Picking at the scabs upon your lips 'til the blood leaks out and down your chin. Such an awful habit, where to begin? All the while with a grin.

All of the kids moved away but you're just too afraid, so you decide to stay in your room all day sneaking glances out a windows painted black.

You've read this stry before. You seem to know how it ends.
No pity.
You fall asleep on the floor, you've got a case of the bends
No pretty.
"So what am I supposed to do when everything that you touch turns into a mess?"
"Well, just don't touch anything."

And his bones just got a little skinnier.

Stuck with the witches that claim they have no name. Lost in a city that's enveloped in flames. Keep on killing time, for you there is no shame. Keep on acting like there isn't a swinging pendulum thats creeping ever so close to your neck.
