Living Like Skeletons

There's a gaping hole in the way we are; with nothing to fill it up anymore
No flesh no blood just broken bone; a frame to hang our lives from
We're living like skeletons
Won't someone wake the dead in me; won't someone shake the dust off me
Give me water, give me bread; but don't give me up for dead
We're living like skeletons

The Acropolis Museum

The Acropolis Museum (Greek: Μουσείο Ακρόπολης, Mouseio Akropolis) is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built to house every artifact found on the rock and on its feet, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. It also lies on the archaeological site of Makrygianni and the ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens.
