Conversations fade
People moving out slow
Hey, here's one for the record
One for the road
You can stand on your soapbox all alone
You can have the flesh, but please leave me the bones

Some call it gold
Some call it dross
Some say I'm saved
Some say I'm lost
So I say in the most respectful tone
"You can have the flesh, but please leave me the bones"

Making those records for the company team
Pull the shiny knob of the vending machine
Do your best to play the hand that's thrown
Help yourself to the flesh
Please leave me the bones

A touch of your love makes my heart full
Every lonely note reminds me of you
Am I looking for heaven inside this drone?
You can take the flesh, but please leave me the bones

When the rhymes were wrapped at all
Cadences car crash on the retaining wall
Come, Holy Spirit
Purify this soul
You can have the flesh
Please leave me the bones
