Pick Up The Bones Lyrics

Collecting 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 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 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.

    After listening to this song many times due to my love of it, i am left to believe the song is about war.

    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”
