"Skin & Bones" as written by and Gilby Clarke....
The last time I fell, I left a piece of myself,
I was so broken up, I should've stayed down.
Heaven, can you help me, I'm losing this war,
I won't die young from just battle scars.

Keep the devil out of my soul.
C'mon and save me,
From a heart of stone.
Tell the Lord, He can take me now,
I'm a shell of a man,
Just skin and bones.

I had a little sister who could drink up a storm,
If the liquor didn't kill her, she'd be twenty-one.
The good times, bad times, remember them all?
It must have been the thunder and alcohol.

Keep the devil out of my soul.
C'mon and save me,
From a heart of stone.
Tell the Lord, He can take me now,
I'm a shell of a man,
Just skin and bones.

Skeletons in the closet keep me awake at night.
The thing that really scares me are the monsters,
I live with everyday.

The last time I fell, I left a piece of myself,
I was so broken up, I should've stayed down.
Heaven, can you help me, I'm losing this war,
I won't die young from just battle scars.

Keep the devil out of my soul.
C'mon and save me,
From a heart of stone.
Tell the Lord, He can take me now,
I'm a shell of a man,
Just skin and bones.

Oh, just skin & bones.
Just skin and bones.
Oh, just skin & bones.
