"Dig Up Her Bones" as written by Jerry Caiafa, Paul Caiafa, David Calabrese and Michael C. Emanuel....
Anything is what she is
Anywhere is where she's from
Anything is what she'll be
Anything as long as it's mine
And the door, it opens, is the way back in
Or is it the way back out

Anyplace is where she'll be
Anyplace, she'll see you from
Lies and secrets become your world
Any time, anywhere, she takes me away
And death climbs up the steps one by one
To give you the rose
That's been burnt by her son

Point me to the sky above
I can get there on my own
Walk me to the graveyard
Dig up her bones

I have seen the demon's face
I have heard of her death place
I fall down on my knees in praise of the
Horrible things that took her away
And death climbs up the steps one by one
To give you the rose
That's been burnt by her son

Point me to the sky above
I can get there on my own
Walk me to the graveyard
Dig up her bones

Point me to the sky above
I can get there on my own
Walk me to the graveyard
Dig up her bones

Bones

    General Commentay,misfits have always been pretty literal about their lyrics, not many complicated metaphors and such. so this song is simple enough: A guy misses his dead wife/girlfriend greatly, and since he cant get to her in heaven, decides to take the quicker route to her, which is by going to the cemetary with a shovel. Beautiful, yet macabre

    General CommentPoison Pale, don't tell people what to do. Obviously if we're here, enjoying the song, we like it. If you have nothing nice to say then shut the fuck up u stupid bitch. :) But those are just my opinions.

    General CommentI like this song. Even though I know it's mostly about morning a death, i still laugh because it reminds me of necrophilia.

    p.s. there's no need for racist comments.

    General CommentCome on Poison lets not start a fucking war here. You have your opinions, and others have theirs. Everyone's is valid..not just yours. Danzig is gone..so get over it and stop being so bitter! I bet if he sang this song, you'd have a different opinion. I personally think it's a great song! If you don't like it..dont listen to it! It's pretty simple. Now get over yourself!

    General CommentJust curious why you feel that this song is a rip-off poison....

    There is some beautiful imagery in the lyrics, I haven't really decided upon a meaning cuz honestly I'm not certain there is one, but the imagery gets me every time.

    Granted Michael Graves is no Glenn, but the guy still has one hell of a voice on him. Just my 2 pennies.

    General Commentthere isnt very many newfits songs i like, this one and maybe American Psycho, but other than that all the old pre-graves stuff was good, Danzig is a much better songwriter and singer

    General Commenti think all of you should stop wineing if you were a true misfits fan form the beginning then you would obviously see that danzing is soooo much more better than graves so fuck you all and shut the fuck up god damn penis bags jebus

    General CommentActually, Graves was trying to be like Danzig in this song, Graves sounds wicked when he screams but singing was Danzig's thing, Jerry Only tried to make Graves be like Danzig, learn your Misfits history!
