about

"When the Bones Are Dry" is a dark and dismal murder ballad. Do you know the murderer?

lyrics

Surprise, surprise
Our lives are lies
Undisguised and televised
When it ends will you despise
Or be convinced you can't
Tell truth from lies

Surprise, surprise
Eye for an Eye
And a lie for a lie
Surprise, surprise
Truth is worthless
When the bones are dry

Manipulation
An occupation
Rhetoric and speculation
Accusation, moral degradation
The high road is just too high
When sugar-coated
In aspartame lies

Surprise, surprise
Eye for an Eye
And a lie for a lie
Surprise, surprise
Truth is worthless
When the bones are dry

Not guilty has never meant innocent
And justice can be so unjust
As the smoke and the mirrors clear
We'll see
A murderer walks free

Surprise, surprise
Eye for an Eye
And a lie for a lie
Surprise, surprise
Truth is worthless
When the bones are dry
When the bones are dry
When the bones are dry
