lyrics

Take apart my skeleton heart, and
See if you can find a beat
No one knows if it ever may restart
And it couldn’t matter less to me

The hands stopped reaching some time ago
And the eyes remain cast down
The mind started taking over alone
The heart started giving ground

And the liver started working overtime
Trying to keep the system clean
But it couldn’t keep up with the acid grime
That took over the whole machine

What does it take to turn a heart all into bone?
Does it start when rhyme and reason are torn up and overthrown?
Does it continue when sins fester and there’s no way to atone?
My chance is blown
My skeleton is overgrown

Then the lungs filled up with smoke and dust
Led to coughing to detoxify
Then the whole body had to readjust
And love started to ossify

What does it take to turn a heart all into bone?
Does it start when rhyme and reason are torn up and overthrown?
Does it continue when sins fester and there’s no way to atone?
My chance is blown
My skeleton is overgrown

Take apart my skeleton heart
See if you can find a beat
See if you can find a beat
See if you can find a beat

A beat (x 8)

What does it take to turn a heart all into bone?
Does it start when rhyme and reason are torn up and overthrown?
Does it continue when sins fester and there’s no way to atone?
My chance is blown
My skeleton is overgrown
