A Skeleton in the Closet

Album: Among the Living (1987)
  • All american, an evil game of extortion
    A sick old man, and who would guess
    He was once s.s.
    A deadly fascination, of a madman's solution
    Six million dead, poison tales pollutes his head

    Tell me a story--will ya, will ya
    A real good story, I won't leave till ya
    Spill your guts old man
    Leave out any secrets, hiding in the

    Any skeletons, and all your other sins
    Any skeletons, in the closet
    Any skeletons, any misfortunes
    Any skeletons, hiding in the closet
    Any skeletons, any skeletons
    In the closet!it's insanity, puppetmaster boy or nazi
    Apt pupil, he hears the screams
    Nightmares turn into wet dreams
    Hatred lives, boiling inside,
    Dealing death it's bumicidein too deep,
    Their secpill your guts old man
    Leave out any secrets,
    Hiding in the...

    Fun pickin-part
    The truth comes out, conspiracy there is no doubt
    His life is ruined, but no not yet
    He's still got one card in the deck
    A loaded gun, a happy smile,
    He'll scope the freeway for awhile
    King of the world, four hundred rounds,
    It took five hours to bring him down
    Tell me a story--will ya, will ya
    A real good story, I won't leave til ya
    Spill your guts old manleave out any secrets,
