Yeah Yeah Yeahs Skeletons Lyrics

Last updated: 03/15/2013 03:00:40 PM

Love my name
Love left dry
Frost or flame
Skeleton me
Fall asleep
Spin the sky
Skeleton me
Wait, don't cry
Love, don't go
Love, don't cry
Skeleton me
Skeleton me

Soon comes rain
Dry your eyes
Frost or flame
Skeleton me
Fall asleep
Spin the sky
Skeleton me
Love, don't cry
Love, don't cry
Love, don't cry
Skeleton me
Skeleton me
Skeleton

About costumes? LOL | Reviewer: YYY <3 | 3/14/13

This song is about letting go and being happy. Remember the good times and let things be.

It's about death. It's about ending a chapter of your life and starting a new one. Don't be sad, it was a good run.

*A Halloween song* | Reviewer: Bob | 4/6/12



This song is likely about dressing up in a skeleton outfit for Halloween since the lead singer is very fond of holidays and is fervently Catholic. Al Hallows Eve was a celtic samhain celebration historically linked to 'all saints day' where parishioners would march around wearing masks so that the vengeful spirits of the dead couldn't cause them harm.

This was often a time for bereavement and public prayer, where practitioners would follow each other around, burning things, for fear that they would otherwise disseminate into an amorphous mass of stupidity.

Stupidity is the human condition, and it's this that we need to teach babies.
