Backyard Skulls

Album: Pedestrian Verse (2013)
  • All our secrets are smothered in dirt, underneath paving stones
    Lying waiting to be told
    Some stay hidden, while some get found
    Like our long lost soul, like a stone beneath the ground

    Backyard skulls, deep beneath the ground
    All those backyard skulls, not deep enough to never be found

    Fear lies the first time, but I was wrong
    There is no more sign, no X's mark this spot
    The ancient encounters with foreign skin
    All but perish by now,
    Guess you can't erase the grin from those

    Backyard skulls, deep beneath the ground
    All those backyard skulls, not deep enough to never be found

    Through the paddle of your boat, lies century upon century
    The skulls untold, has hushed the suburban adultery
    And the war holes, and underneath the worms we feed
    Lies silent skulls, are smiling at the hipocracy

    Backyard skulls, deep beneath the ground
    All those backyard skulls, not deep enough to never be found
    Backyard skulls, deep beneath the ground
    All those backyard skulls, not deep enough to never be found
    Deep enough to never be found
    Deep enough to never be found Writer/s: ANDY MONAGHAN, DAVID WILLIAM LAWRENCE KENNEDY, GRANT DAVID HUTCHISON, RUSSELL GORDON SKENE, SCOTT JOHN HUTCHISON
