Bolt the windows, and lock the doors.
There's gonna be a shit storm!
All the lives I've lived caused dark skies and wind to blow.
Oh, oh, it's terrible.

Yet, through it all I'll keep it up.
Deceptions roots writhe deep I'm stuck.
I'm overwhelmed.

I've made mistakes.
They keep me company.
Oh, man, what's up with me?
But I've changed, it's comforting.

I've made mistakes.
They keep me company.
Oh man, what's up with me?
But I've changed, and I've changed.

For the sake of secrets, let's say I'm safe.
Let's say I got a hiding place.
Let's say I've made apologies, the hearts I've broken have been appeased.
Let's say the storm, like most, will pass.
Let's sing a song for relief at last.
Let's say that only time will tell if I'm really over being overwhelmed.

I've made mistakes.
They keep me company.
Oh man, what's up with me?
But I've changed, it's comforting.

I've made mistakes.
They keep me company.
Oh man, what's up with me?
But I've changed, and I've changed.
And I've changed.
And I've changed.
It's honestly that easy.
Oh I've changed. It's comforting
And I've changed
And I've changed
It's honestly that easy. Oh I've changed. It's comforting.

And there's something soothing and surreal as hell.
About climbing up from where you fell.
You finally forget to be overwhelmed.

I've made mistakes.
They keep me company.
Oh man, what's up with me?
But I've changed, it's comforting.

I've made mistakes.
They keep me company.
Oh man, what's up with me?
But I've changed, it's comforting.

I've made mistakes.
They keep me company.
Oh man, I've changed, it's comforting.

I've made mistakes.
They keep me company.
Oh man, what's up with me?
I've changed, it's comforting.

    General CommentOkay; so heres the deal. If you've seen the video hes being followed around by skeletons in his everyday life.

    'I've made mistakes.
    They keep me company.'

    Then at the end; they all go in a closet.

    'But I've changed, and I've changed.
    And I've changed.
    And I've changed.
    It's honestly that easy.
    Oh I've changed. It's comforting
    And I've changed
    And I've changed
    It's honestly that easy. Oh I've changed. It's comforting.'


    The term 'skeletons in your closet' are basically things you keep secret

    For the sake of secrets, let's say I'm safe.
    Let's say I got a hiding place.
    Let's say I've made apologies, the hearts I've broken have been appeased.
    Let's say the storm, like most, will pass.
    Let's sing a song for relief at last.
    Let's say that only time will tell if I'm really over being overwhelmed.


    So basically the skeletons represent his mistakes; and when he changes he leaves them back in the closet.

    Thats what I think anyway.
