Track Name: Skeletal Sounds (Single Edit)
don’t rattle that cage now, don’t rattles those bones
don’t make those skeletal sounds, they’ll know you’re home
you better learn your lessons, you better pay some heed
you were never the one that we wanted, but you might be the one we need

shake off those fears doll, shake off that blood
but never shake the feeling that the minute you’re alone
they’re gonna get you, they’re gonna win
if you let your guard down, you’re gonna let them in

never look behind, never look ahead
all these friends around you, they're already dead
gotta use your cunning, use your thoughts
you better keep running, you better not stop

can’t think of your family or think of the past
they’re clawing at your heels, they’re starting to mass
they're breaking through the wood, they're looking at me
if i ever had a chance, if i ever want to leave

they're tearing through the bikers, tearing through the mall
we’re killing each other, killing them all!
gotta take to the ceiling, take all of the guns
the elevator’s taken; am i the only one?

they’ve made it to the hallway, made it to the door
put a gun to your head, couldn’t do that before
now they're chomping at the bits, and i’m starting to bleed
i try to pull the trigger, try to do what i...

you done rattled that cage now, you been rattling bones
you keep making those skeletal sounds, now you feel at home
Track Name: You Are Safe Now (Acoustic)
he sits on the edge of the bed, holding her hand
whispers everything is gonna be alright
she sighs deep, hangs up the phone, composes herself, the kids are home
guess she’ll have to speak to them tonight

and it was hard enough
to hear those words
have them heard
take them in...

disowned and thrown to the side of the road, where he’s most comfortable
even here he’s never really alone
he goes clubbing every night, she’s singing his song, but she’s not singing to him
you have become what you fear the most

and it was hard enough
to hear those words
have them heard
take them in

take his hand, hold on, you know you are alone in this room
and you are safe now
you are safe now with me
take his hand, hold on, you know it’s only us in this room
you are safe now, you are safe now with me

strange we never thought of what we really had
sad now that it’s lost we can’t ever feel that pain

someone said if you can never let it go
know it wasn’t something that you ever really loved

when’s it ever done?

he’s got a plan to end his life, but something stays his hand every night
could it be the fear now of her ghost?
'cause it was hard enough
to hear those words
have them heard
take them in

take his hand, hold on, you know
it’s only us in this room now, and you are safe now
you are safe now with me
take his hand, hold on, it’s only us, doll, in this room and
you are safe now
you are safe now with me
