lyrics

Have a look to see what’s left
His attic has always been a pest
Like all those possums creeping around up there
So we both peaked inside his chest
Denying every dusty letter we read
From some other woman who crawled into his bed

Board it up and take it home
Board it up so tight
Burn them on a bed of coal
Burn them all tonight

Are you set? So pass me the matches
Do it, we’ll bury all the ashes
They won’t ever know
What's hiding in this home

The first step should be the worst
But you can’t keep still, I can’t use my words
Hoping someone will call around late at night
And when finally they did
We’re stuck in a circle, with nowhere to begin
And I surrendered like I was still just a kid

Board it up and take it home
Board it up so tight
Burn them on a bed of coal
Burn them all tonight

Are you set? So pass me the matches
Do it, we’ll bury all the ashes
They won’t ever know
And they won’t ever know
What's hiding in this home
