Track Name: Be a Skeleton
Just take a step right out of your skin
And be a skeleton...
It takes some faith to rip off your face
And do a bone dance all over the place

Cause if that's what you wanna do with your life come on and
Be a Skeleton
To leave behind all of the struggle and strife come on and
Be a Skeleton

Come on be a skeleton
Come on take off all your skin
Come on be a skeleton
Let us see your boney grin
Come on be a skeleton
Come on let's see what's within
Come on be a skeleton
Come on be my boney twin

If you wanna be bones, be bones with us
If you wanna be bones, be bones with us

Just lock the door and unplug the phone
And turn into bones
If you want bring over some guests
As long as they don't have flesh

Cause if that's what you wanna do with your life come on and
Be a Skeleton
To leave behind all of the struggle and strife come on and
Be a Skeleton

Come on be a skeleton
Come on take off all your skin
Come on be a skeleton
Let us see your boney grin
Come on be a skeleton
Come on let's see what's within
Come on be a skeleton
Come on be my boney twin

If you wanna be bones, be bones with us
If you wanna be bones, be bones with us
Track Name: Bones Are Us
There's bones in me there's bones in you
There's bones in everything we do
Sometimes our bones might even break
That's alright, that's ok

There's bones in every move you make
There's bones in every step you take
One day our bones will fade away
That's the way bones get made

And everytime a bone breaks inside you
A bone breaks inside me
Every little bone inside of us
Is called humanity
Cause' everybody knows our bones are us
And that's reality

Bones are reality

There's bones inside us every day
Inside the marrow shows the way
There is a strength that lies within
Underneath, all our skin

More bones than you can ever count
It doesn't matter the amount
Sometimes we gotta let it out
Sometimes bones make us shout

And every time a bone breaks inside you
A bone breaks inside me
Every little bone inside of us
Is called humanity
Cause' everybody knows our bones are us
And that's reality

I know one thing for sure
I'm glad to have my bones
Cause' when I'm feeling down
They always stand me up

There's bones in every living thing
Metaphorically speaking
And one day bones will pass away
So enjoy them today

And every time a bone breaks inside you
A bone breaks inside me
Every little bone inside of us
Is called humanity
Cause' everybody knows our bones are us
And that's reality
And every time a bone breaks inside you
A bone breaks inside me
Every little bone inside of us
Is called humanity
Cause' everybody knows our bones are us
And that's reality

Bones are reality
Track Name: Bone Dry
I came to the west coast
To be a celebrity
Didn't know what I'd find there
Maybe stars and a shining sea

When I came barreling down
On old Los Angeles
All I could recognize
Was sand as far as the eye could see

The bones of men
Women, and children
Were lying all around
On the hot dry ground
Without a sound

I climbed up the hillside
Tryna find some survivors there
As I passed by the Hollywood sign
And mansions, all were in disrepair

Made my way to the Spielberg's
Came in through the open door
All I saw was a coyote
Licking Steve's skull on the dusty floor

The bones of men
Women, and children
Were lying all around
On the hot dry ground
Without a sound

I knew the drought
Was going on
But who knew it was so wrong
To wanna water your lawn

Like Icarus
The city of angels will melt its wings
So begins the reign of the mighty sun king

Took a couple of oscars
From Scorcese and Steve Mcqueen
Then I drove from the sunset
Boulevard of broken dreams

The bones of men
Women, and children
Were lying all around
On the hot dry ground
Without a sound
Track Name: Bony Feeling
Sit a couple bone men round the table
Cause I never had a family of my own
Call me mad, crazy or unstable
With friends like these I never feel alone

Everybody get a bony feeling
Everybody have a bony evening
Everybody needs a friend to call their very own

Out back gotta bone man playing baseball
Cause I never had a dad to throw with me
Dig a few more bone men from the graveyard
Got me a complete baseball team

Everybody get a bony feeling
Everybody have a bony evening
Everybody needs a friend to call their very own

I had a bony revelation
Don't lay your judgment on me
Don't need your human expectations
I only wanna be free

Fit a couple bonemen in a suitcase
Left one at home to miss me when I'm gone
Gonna take a bone-ified vacation
Gonna be a bone man in no time at all

Everybody get a bony feeling
Everybody have a bony evening
Everybody needs a friend to call their very own
Everybody get a bony feeling
Everybody have a bony evening
Everybody needs a friend to call their very own
Track Name: Evergreen Way (Bone Farmer)
Hey baby don't you know I got bones a' growing
Ten of em' a day
Down on my farm by evergreen way

Come see just what I mean it's a competition
And my batch is the best
These home-grown bones rise above the rest

Hey mama
Is it a sin
To be growing me a skeleton
Come take a
Look at these bones
That grow right here beneath these slabs of grey stone

I got a little deal with the local people
They bring me the seeds
One long wood casket's all that I need

I plant em' in the ground and I wait a couple
Months for em' to grow
These big bad bones break right through the snow

Hey mama
Is it a sin
To be growing me a skeleton
They send long boxes of wood
I plant them deep down underground till' they're good

In the sun
And the rain
A skeleton will grow so well
It will sell like grain
In the sun
And the rain
A skeleton will grow so well
Yes a skeleton will grow so well
Yes a skeleton will grow so well
That you'll go insane (4x)

Ooh mawma don't you make any fuss about it
I've got enough slack
That local sheriff's all on my back

I don't care what they think
But they sure got plenty
To say about me
Some call my farm a cemetery

Hey mama
Is it a sin
To be growing me a skeleton
Come take a
Look at these bones
That grow right here beneath these slabs of grey stone
Track Name: Bones on the Beach
The whale that's been beached
Whose bones have been bleached
The surfer who got mangled on the sharp reef

The hand in the sand
All that remains of a surf band
Bikini'd skeletinis getting bone tans

The bones on the beach
With life just out of reach
They bear the glow
Like moonlit snow
In May

The lost pirate's chest
The ribs are all that's left
Last measure of his treasure are his gold teeth

The skull of a hunk
The grave of a babe
Sundown leaves them rundown
By a big wave

The bones on the beach
With life just out of reach
They bear the glow
Like moonlit snow
In May

Until they wash away...

Bones wash away
Until they wash away
Bones wash away (ad infinitum)
Track Name: Old Bones
Old Bones
I've given all I've got
I've worked an awful lot
And I am ready for a rest

Old Bones
I break so easily
Move me oh so carefully
And hear me groan under the stress

When I was young bones
I would grow a lot
I grew a family
Of bones shaped just like me

Old Bones
Wander around house
My hands are often found
Holding pictures shakily

Old Bones
I'm down upon my knees
I'm praying for release
I am ready for a rest

When I was young bones
I was strong enough
To life my children high
Way up into the sky

My children
Had children
Their bones are lifting children up
My children
Had children
Their bones are lifting children up
My children
Had children
Their bones are lifting children up
Track Name: Skeletons in the Closet
This time around
These bones are gonna make it known
We gotta let em know they're not alone

This time around
These bones are gonna have to own
Up to the feelings to the feelings let em show

This time around
These bones are gonna bring it home
This time around

All these skeletons
Are afraid that they have committed sins
And all these frightened bones
Hiding love away, speaking in hush tones

And we must let them live
And we must let them love

This time around
They're gonna take the world by storm
Haters will see that they were misinformed

This time around
Homobones will be the new norm
The fabric of the old society is torn

These bones are gonna bring it home
This time around
These bones are gonna make it known

That all....

All these skeletons
Are afraid that they have committed sins
And all these frightened bones
Hiding love away, speaking in hush tones

And we must let them live
And we must let them love
Track Name: Lucy
Lucy lay unknown 3 million years
Before we dug up her bones
And now she's known in every home around the world

Lucy Ethiopian princess and Australopithecus
The scientific consensus says we're truly blessed to find your bones

How can fractured skulls compete with
A skeleton 40% complete there's just one thing I gotta know
Lucy just one kiss before I go

Lucy walks the Serengeti
On a pair of valgus knees
That means bi-pedialy
She could come walk upright to me

Lucy you are truly marvelous
That's why you're called Dinkinesh
In Amharic languages
They sing your song around the world

How can fractured skulls compete with
A skeleton 40% complete there's just one thing I gotta know
Lucy just one kiss before I go

Lucy
You should know
Lucy
I dig your bones

Lucy in a prehistoric life
I would make you my wife
And the sabertooth cats
Would be no match for our true love

Lucy when I die
Here's what I'll do
Put my bones next to you
We'll have eternity to
Lie down and intertwine our bones

How can fractured skulls compete with
A skeleton 40% complete there's just one thing I gotta know
Lucy just one kiss before I go
Track Name: Funny Bones
I know I got funny bones
But please don't laugh at me
Because you have to see
I never asked for these things
And it's awfully embarrassing

And I'm aware
That people stare
At my bones
It's not fair

So you can't tell me
Removing them is wrong
I have waited
To be boneless for so long

I know that my tummy groans
But please don't feel for me
Because you've got to see

I'm saving up for surgery
So I can't afford
Food to eat

And I'm aware
That people stare
At my bones
It's not fair

So you can't tell me
Removing them is wrong
I have waited
To be boneless for so long

Gonna turn my life around
Stop being a boney clown
Everyone is gonna see
What I'm really meant to be in my life

And soon
I'm going under the knife
All the folks will hear
That my bones will disappear
So too will the laughs and jeers
Waited for a million years yeah it's true

And then
You'll see what I can do
Yeah yeah

And I know I got
And I'll be so hot
Without all my bones

Track Name: Dream in the River
Do you remember Halloween 2003?
And those plastic skeletons hung from the tree
And oh how they scared the little ones
The simples ones
Wasn't that fun

Well I took those bones down to the riverside
And put 'em in some lawn chairs where they would reside
And sink way on down below the stream
A perfect scheme
Just like a dream

Well I got a call
From the local sheriff
Just an hour ago
And he spoke of
An investigation of suspicious bones
And they had my DNA
What was I supposed to say?

During the investigation I just froze
All I had to say was that were fake bones
But oh how that bad cop frightened me
And in spite of me
Eventually, I confessed

Now I'm locked up
I'll never pull another prank on you again
I might as well
Be a sack of bones here in my pig pen
And what I've learned is not to fold
Like a lawn chair when you're told

So take it from me
Never put your fake bones in a sacred place or face reality
Track Name: Grocery Store (On Me)
I was just a poor french boy
Buried in the catacombs
Then they built a grocery store on me
On me... (2x)

Now I'm just a bone-vivant
Drink fine wine before I haunt
The people in the grocery store on me
On me... (2x)

Died of the plague
At a very young age
And then they built a grocery store on me

Je suis un phantom solitaire
A boy-shaped piece of solid air
Because they built a grocery store on me
On me... (2x)

My skeleton lies in the dark
Underneath your shopping cart
Because they built a grocery store on me
On me... (2x)

Died of the plague
At a very young age
And then they built a grocery store on me
