"Bones Exposed" as written by and Aaron Pauley Alan Ashby....
It's like loving a lion that cannot be tamed
I snap at the thought or the sound of your name
Pulling teeth from my stomach you've been eaten alive
My blood fills your lungs, my soul your inside

My feet they stand on ashes
From the fires that you've made
Burning bridges
Just to save your face

If I say I wouldn't be hostile
Could you say you would do the same
If we're all made just a little bit broken
Tell me who is to blame
Tell me who is to blame

I'm sensing a feeling picking wounds of regret
That left alone there's no scarring ill dig and ill dig
Scratching and itching I'll keep biting my lip
From this pain that I'm feeling
Picking wounds of regret
A cut cannot heal
Unless you leave it alone
I'll open mine daily
Leaving bones exposed

Exposed!

If I say I wouldn't be hostile
Could you say you would do the same
If we're all made just a little bit broken
Tell me who is to blame
Tell me who is to blame

To blame!

Standing on ashes from the fires you've made
Burning your bridges just to save your face

Wounds of regret

If I say I wouldn't be hostile
Could you say you would do the same
If we're all made just a little bit broken
Tell me who is to blame
Tell me who is to blame

To blame!

We're broken, imperfect
We were all made the same
We're broken, we're broken, imperfect
We are all to, blame!

    My InterpretationOk so this song is basically about this guy who fears something that's different and he hostile to him. The song this in "If I say I wouldn't be hostile
    Could you say you would do the same"
    The screaming part describes the things they would do for him and he still calls them hostile because they're "Broken" Song: "If we're all made just a little bit broken
    Then tell me who is to blame"
    This part says it's not their fault they're broken.
    This is kind of like how people judge depressed people. It's not their fault they're like that and most people are afraid and hostile.

    My Interpretation(It's like loving a lion that cannot be tamed)This is about a guy who is in love with a girl who he can't be with. He loves her but she doesn't feel the same.

    (I snap at the thought or the sound of your name) When people talk about her he snaps.

    (Pulling teeth from my stomach) The sinking in his stomach, the knots and pain in his stomach from thinking bout her.

    (My feet they stand on ashes, from the fires that you've made, burning bridges, just to save your face) He stands on what he has left of whatever they were. She caused all this pain just to save her image.

    (If I say I wouldn't be hostile, could you say you would do the same) If he won't be rude or negative in any way he asks her if she won't be rude or anything like that either.

    (I'm sensing a feeling picking wounds of regret) He is picking away at her regrets for hurting him, trying to get her to explain why.

    (That left alone there's no scarring ill dig and ill dig) He won't stop he will continue until he gets the answers

    (A cut cannot heal, Unless you leave it alone, I'll open mine daily, Leaving bones exposed) He explains ho you can't fix damage unless you forget about it, if you think about it, it's like not letting cuts heal.

    (If we're all made just a little bit broken, Tell me who is to blame) He can't fix that he's different, if she wants to him to change but he is who he is. She an't bla.e him for hat so he asks, who is to blame?
