you can crush these bones, grind them up and scatter me,
I’ll be blown back to your door
and you can freeze this heart, throw it down and shatter me
but I’ll rise up off your floor
+++ it’s coming back to haunt you,
+++ things you thought nobody knew
+++ are coming back to haunt you…

you can bind my hands, ship me off to foreign lands
but you can’t defend your ears
‘cause the song we sing will never stop echoing
till it finds your darkest fears
+++ it’s coming back to haunt you,
+++ things you swore nobody knew
+++ are coming back to haunt you,
+++ flying steady, straight and true,
+++ coming back to haunt you,
+++ dark birds winging home to roost,
+++ coming back to haunt you…

you can sell me short, bribe the guy who’s keeping score
and call it natural selection
but that sad-eyed whore who lives inside your sullied heart
don’t take well to rejection..
+++ she’s coming back to haunt you,
+++ things you prayed nobody knew
+++ are coming back to haunt you,
+++ flying steady, straight and true
+++ coming back to haunt you,
+++ dark birds winging home to roost
+++ coming back to haunt you…
