Set It Off – The Haunting lyrics

"Come on in, boy," said the skeletons sitting by her closet door
Dirty secrets, happy memories and broken hearts across the floor
I was knocked out, heels over head
So you dragged me by my feet to a ghost town, where you buried me
No wonder no one heard my screams

Love's so alive, but it died in it's sleep
And now that it's dead, I live in your head and I will haunt your fucking dreams

No one will love you like I did, will treat you like I did
So go on, wear that scarlet letter
No one will love you like I did, will touch you like I did
So good luck finding something better

Run away, boy, if you couldn't tell, baby's got a thirst for blood
A subtle system, breaking melodies, craving bullets from her gun
So I tripped, stayed, follow every word, little spirals in their eyes
Catch a lover, turn an enemy just to watch them burn alive

No one will love you like I did, will treat you like I did
So go on, wear that scarlet letter
No one will love you like I did, will touch you like I did
So good luck finding something better

Someday you may find that picture perfect guy
And I'll chase my words with poison
Until that day arrives, I'm sending to the sky
Fill your boy with only lies, oh

No one will love you like I did, will treat you like I did
So go on, wear that scarlet letter
No one will love you like I did, will touch you like I did
So good luck finding something better

No one will love you like I did, will treat you like I did
So go on, wear that scarlet letter
No one will love you like I did, will you fuck you like I did
So good luck finding something better

    I think this song is about a relationship ending and the guy is obsessed with the girl. He talks about love dying and him staying on her mind and haunting her in her dreams. He tells her that nobody will treat and love her the way he did. Wearing a scarlet letter, I believe, means that she is precious and he wishes her good luck in finding someone or something better than him. During the song he repeats this. In the middle he says, how, if she finds a new guy he will spill lies to him (probably to break them up). Near the end he starts talking about the "picture perfect" guy for her. I believe he is realizing that he needs to move on and she deserves the "picture perfect" guy for both of them to be happy or satisfied. He says that, "until that day arrives" he will fill her boy with lies. "Skeletons sitting by her closet", probably means her ex-boyfriends. "No one heard my screams" might mean nobody saw how much the break up hurt him badly inside. (Anyway, I'm not 100% sure that's what this song means but its how I view the song's meaning. I hope it's how you guys view it also).
