about

I've written so many songs about murder over the years it seems inevitable that someone might start questioning some of my characters. So this song is about a murderer dealing with unwanted questions - he isn't telling you anything. And maybe you should stop asking.

lyrics

If you keep digging around
You won't like what you find
Is this a clue to the man that you are
A key to a door that should stay locked?
We've all done things that are better burned and dead
If you keep digging around
You won't like what you find

Memories fade and our consciences clear
If you dredge up still waters you might drown

These skeletons
These skeletons
Ain't coming out for no-one

These skeletons
These skeletons
Ain't coming out for no-body
Ain't coming out for no-body

Everyone's wearing a mask
Everyone's got a past
Are you as blameless as you pretend
As pure as driven snow?
Cos we've all done things that are better burned and dead
Everyone's wearing a mask
And you wouldn't like what you see

Memories fade and our consciences clear
If you dredge up still waters you might drown

These skeletons
These skeletons
Ain't coming out for no-one

These skeletons
These skeletons
Ain't coming out for no-body
Ain't coming out for no-body

Memories fade and our consciences clear
If you dredge up still waters you might drown

These skeletons
These skeletons
Ain't coming out for no-one

These skeletons
These skeletons
Ain't coming out for no-body
Ain't coming out for no-body
