Lately I've been measuring
Seems my time is growing thin
Wind me up and watch me spin
Watch me spin
Watch me spin

Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones don't you know?

Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones don't you know?
I'm just skin and bones

All worn out and nothing fits
Brennivin and cigarettes
The more I give the less I get
I'm all set
I'm all set

Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones don't you know?

Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones don't you know?

I'm just skin and bones
I'm just skin and bones
I'm just skin and bones
I'm just skin and bones
I'm just skin and bones

Deep within this frame of mind
Heart of hearts oh valentine
Tell my mom I'm doing fine
Doing fine
Doing fine

Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones don't you know?

Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones don't you know?

Skin and bones
Skin and bones
Skin and bones don't you know?

I'm just skin and bones
I'm just skin and bones
I'm just skin and bones
I'm just skin and bones
I'm just skin and bones

    This song is quite obviously about some kind of eating disorder, which you can tell from lines referring to the physical symptoms that accompany most ED's. But I think that it can really be seen as any emotionally/psychologically draining experience, e.g. Being in an unhappy relationship or suffering from mental illness. That's what I love about these lyrics, they scream one thing on the surface, but can be related to the listeners own personal experiences.
