Cage The Elephant – Cover Me Again lyrics

Heart of steel born to kill
Mother's milk left me dressed to shame
I just go my way
Move to fast
It won't last
Hammerhead, Daddy ran away
He still knows my name

Oh, something's gotta give
The paper on the wall soon will peel and fall
Oh, and then you'll see my face painted up with sin
Cover me, Cover me again

I outgrew my old shoes
My back yard was cluttered up with lies
Kept it easy on the eyes
Fresh homemade under shade
Black and red, paint my fingers blue
Still hiding from the truth

Mm, My best friend kills the pain
Mm, But only for a day
Mm, Keeps chewing on my veins

Oh, Something's gotta give
The paper on the wall soon will peel and fall
Oh, then you'll see my face painted up with sin
Cover me, Cover me again
Cover me again

    It's probably not the actual meaning but to me it's about showing your true colors even if it is really painful and uncomfortable to do so. Letting people see you as you really are and how you really feel inside. I got this idea from the chorus but then again the whole chewing on my veins thing does sound like heroin use. Maybe there's a different meaning behind that line though.
