    General Commentthe title of the song, to me, signifies children growing up and becoming the skeletons they hold in their closet. The lies that they've lived and the experiences they've had. It's all about growing up and becoming alone, like a skeleton.

    General CommentI like that interpretation.
    I enjoy this song; I find it to be the only flaw with the sarcastic title of the album, as it is the "happy"est tune here while the rest are all quite somber in their own ways.

    General CommentWell this song makes me think of sunrise in a grimy city, the moment when you realise that it looks beautiful.

    And I think the title is funny. (the back cover says 'happy songs OR happy people) :D

    General Commentfor me its only means

    "the kids, the children" (the youth, the future) "will be dead, will be nothin as we are nothing" (the beauty is just young ulgy thing... i dont know how to express myself cause i'm french, but for me this is... what is beautiful and young and whatyouwant will be ugly and dead and old... one day, nothing can change, the time is the only important thing and we are his slaves.

    General CommentI agree with DoItForTheTeam. It's about the cyclical nature of our lives. The music, in terms of volume and intensity, starts slow, peaks, and then falls to its conclusion. Like a human life...kids will be skeletons.
