It's time again to bury a hatcher

Location

(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
It's time
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
Once again
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
To bury
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
A hatchet
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
............
 
A long time coming.
A long time gone.
Even after all this time
You can still hear the cries 
From the ghost of your past
Calling out to you.
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
............
 
It echoes in your head.
Haunting. Your. 
Every. Waking. Day.
Your tossing.
Turning.
Looking over your shoulder.
Your body is covered
In sweat.
You're in fear!
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
.............
 
Afraid to close your eyes.
Afraid to remember,
You reap what you sow.
Afraid to speck
Even a word
Because it could Make 
the cries grow louder
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
Booming!
Over!
And Over!
In your mind!
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
Till you want to 
Puncture it!
Stab it!
Break it!
To make it open up
To make it bleed!
And bleed!
Till you can't 
Hear!
Or feel!
A!
Damn!
Thing!
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
............
 
There's no one
Else to blame
But, yourself.
You.
Yourself.
Made all of this
Happen to
You!
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
............
 
Should have
Taken care of that ghost
A long time ago.
But no!
You waited and waited
And now
Look!
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
...........
 
All of this
Is on
You!
Because you have
Unfinished 
Business.
That You!
Have to take care of
If you want to live
In peace.
 
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
.............
 
So go deep
And deeper
In the dark, dreaded woods.
Till you're all alone
Till you feel like you're
In your worst
Nightmare!
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
.............
 
Then dig and dig.
Dig till you
Break your back.
Dig till
Your hands go numb
And the skin
Cracks.
Dig till your
Blisters need
Out in pain
Because
 
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
It's time
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
Once again
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
To bury
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
 
A hatchet
 
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
(....hi ho.......hi ho....)
