"Bones" as written by Neil Carlill, William Foster, Danny Goffey and Pearl Samantha Lowe....
Her bones are buried in the backyard along with my integrity
I tested your honor you questioned my faith
Now look where you are you're right where you'll stay

Its time for you to know that I'm loathing
You'll never see me again

I can see your eyes have been wandering slowly
Do you have any last words?

Oh no I can see you've been lying through your teeth
Who's breathing now?

I hope your ready to leave this place cause you are going either way
We've fallen far too distant

All you were good for was everything but I guess that wasn't enough to keep you alive
I'm horrified by my potential
I am so capable of terrible things
I really hate goodbyes

There's no way that I could just let it slide
I did this to you
I did this to you

And all this time I never knew regret is for you
For you

Oh no I can see that you have been lying through your teeth
Who's breathing now?

I hope you are ready to leave this place cause you are going either way
We've fallen far too distant.

I'm ready to forget
I'm ready to forget
I'm ready to forget you

    General Commentagreed, it's such a good song <3
    but i think it's about his girlfriend cheating on him and the whole burying her in his backyard is a metaphor~

    likeeee "I tested your honour you questioned my faith"
    maybe he tested her by asking her if she was cheating and she asked him something like why can't you have faith that i wouldn't do that?

    and then "Oh no I can see you've been lying through your teeth"
    basically she's been lying about cheating.

    "There's no way that I could just let it slide, I did this to you, I did this to you"
    he can't just let this go and forgive her, although i'm not totally sure what he means when he says i did this to you. maybe he pushed her away and didn't care for her enough and that led to her cheating on him.

    "I hope you are ready to leave this place cause you are going either way, We've fallen far too distant."
    even if she quits cheating he's going to break up with her because it's severed their relationship with no hope of fixing it.

    SO YEAAAAAH that's just my take on it (:
