LyricsEdit

She wheezes out her dying wish
Come closer, one more moment, one more kiss
And I love her
I give her all I can

Her body sinks, her heat released
The curtain swings, this time she leaves
I'll remember all she's done for me
But only I forgot that I'm not ready to let her go

As all time moves
You'll be riddled with doubt
You mourn to pull through
But love is dangerous

When skeletons live
Inside your closets, thick and thin
You'll fear that no one will hear us sing our songs
The truth is relevant but not for long
'Cause love is our downfall

Ooh, I'm sorry this life cuts out everything
And leaves you to scrounge for nothing
(Give us the monstar!)

There's no chance to try and mend
What's been broken can't be bent
So the past remains the past until present

The cradle sways this black disguise
This chained coffin breathes our time's demise
All these shackles deceive just how long I've grieved

I made my move with no worry or doubt
Let them live as they do
My eternal reminder

When skeletons live
Inside your closets, thick and thin
You'll fear that no one will hear us sing our songs
The truth is relevant but not for long
'Cause love is our downfall

I'm sorry, but the hurt's not going away
I'll bury all the past
Everything in it is place
(Give us the monstar!)

When skeletons live
Inside your closets, thick and thin
You'll fear that no one will hear us sing our songs
The truth is relevant but not for long
'Cause love!

When skeletons live
When skeletons live
When skeletons live
Inside your closets, thick and thin
You fear that no one will hear

I'm sorry this life cuts out everything
And leaves you to scrounge for nothing
(Give us the monstar!)

I'm sorry this life cuts out everything
And leaves you to scrounge for nothing
(Give us the monstar!)
