Alice Cooper Pick Up The Bones Lyrics

Last updated: 08/13/2013 01:19:13 PM

Collected pieces of my family
In an old pillow case

This one has a skull
But it don't have a face

These look like the arms of my father so strong
And the ring on his finger
Means my grandmother's gone

There's a pile full of legs
Where my sister once played
There's some mud made of blood
And these teeth are decayed

The ear of my brother
The hand of a friend
And I just can't
Put them back together again

Pick up the bones
And set them on fire
Follow the smoke going higher and higher
Pick up the bones
And wish them goodnight
Pray 'em a prayer and turn out the light

There's some stains on the floor
Where my kitchen once stood
There's some ribs in the fireplace
Mixed with the wood

There's some ghosts in the air
Some phantoms in the wind
A bullet in the back
And some scars on the skin

There were demons with guns
Who marched through this place
Killing everything that moved
They're a inhuman race

There is holes in the wall
Bloody hair on the bricks
And the smell of this hell is
Making me sick

Pick up the bones
And set them on fire
Follow the smoke going higher and higher
Pick up the bones
And wish them goodnight
Pray 'em a prayer and turn out the light

Pick up the bones
And set them on fire
Follow the smoke going higher and higher
Pick up the bones
And wish them goodnight
Pray 'em a prayer and turn out the light

Now maybe someday
The sun's gonna shine
Flowers will bloom
And all will be fine

But nothing will grow
On this burnt cursive ground
Cuz the breath of the death
Is the only sound
