i'll be black as coal i'll be cold as steel i'll be all the things you never wanted to feel i'll be deepest pit i'll be biggest fear i'll be all the things you never wanted to hear i'll be far from home i'll be without light i'll be all the things that come out and scare you at night and i'll be kissing you in the boneyard in the boneyard i'll take off all my skin just to let you in you'll see my big black mess my aching emptiness you'll never fill me no matter how long you try you'll just get lost inside you'll lose those perfect eyes lose that perfect mouth and just like me you'll be a pile of bones and i'll be kissing you in the boneyard in the boneyard
