Pick Up The Bones Lyrics
In an old pillow case
This one has a skull
But it don't have a face
These look like the arms of father so strong
And the ring on this finger
Means my Grandma is gone
Here's some legs in a cloud

The song seems to be about a young man returning to his war ravaged home just to remember what he lost. He lost all those dear to him so he tried to "put them back together again " but he couldn't bring back the dead. Hence his pain and loss. He recalls the attack on his home and bares scars from the attack. He is the sole survivor and he lives on grounds cursed by blood and death. At least that's my reading of it.

A bad dream maybe?

After listening to this song many times due to my love of it, i am left to believe the song is about war.
“There are forces in the air
Ghosts in the wind
Some bullets in the back
And some scars on the skin
There were demons with guns
Who marched through this place
Killing everything that breathed
They're an inhuman race”
