Skin To Bone Lyrics

Skin to bone, steel to rust
Ash to ashes dust to dust
Let tomorrow have its way
With the promises we made
Skin to bone, steel to rust.

Ash to ashes, dust to dust
Your deception, my disgust
When your name is finally drawn,

    I'd agree. Betrayal seems fit for this great song. But for a lot of his songs to mean betrayal, makes me think it's just a lot to handle. As in he needs to get it all out by writing songs.

    Sure the song may refer to betrayal in some way..But its deeper than that.,at list for me..When I listen to it it makes me think about us..people..About death....We're all one day going to die and disappear...from skin to bone..Like steal gets eaten down by rust,people fade away to dust..ashes..and although sad,,it's true.."night to day and day to night"..the days pass.."Will tomorrow have it's way?"...With tomorrow they also mean the passed time....of it will have it's way..as time passes,we get older..therefore closer to death..That's how I see it..It's a really good song..

    I'd have to agree with the guy above me. And the reason most of the songs are about betrayal is because Linkin Park has a theme for every album. A Thousand Suns was Corrupt and Living Things is Betrayal.

    Hmmm... it's kind of self explanitory, no? I'm guessing it's just a random song that sounds great that Linkin Park just came up with. Probably about a guy eager to get rid of someone who betrayed him, ("You're deception, my disgust"; "When your name is finally drawn, I'll be happy that you're gone.") The "skin to bone" part could be about how hurt this guy was by being betrayed. As for the rest, it's just the recurring theme, I suppose. In short, it's just a good song about being betrayed; basically like every other Linkin Park song.
