Skeletons In The Closet



Don't you hate feeling of feeling exposed?
When the ones you love know too much
Skeletons in the closet come out to play
And dance around like mocking-jays

I hate it when people know too much
The simple thought of them knowing gives me a rush
Not the good kind
The one that uplifts your soul
Oh no…the one that drags you down a deep dark hole

I don't like people knowing too much
The stupid secrets that give you a rush
It's worked out better in the past
When I knew better to keep to myself

I hate being vulnerable to the ones who care
They wield so much power
To tug you by the hair

It's a scary thought to put so much fate on a single being
What to do when you feel so exposed
As the deep darkest secrets finally come out
Hope for the best but expect the worst?

Don't you hate feeling of feeling exposed?
When the ones you love know too much
Skeletons in the closet come out to play
And dance around like mocking-jays
