Come and speak to me, my friend.
Forget the words that you think you were saying.
Cause your thoughts seem to be thinking otherwise.
Cause your feelings seem to be feeling otherwise.
Otherwise. Otherwise

Take your broken pieces and use them for protection.
Use them for protection. Use them for protection.
Take your strong pieces and use them for living on the outside of your skin.
Living on the outside...

You've got to suck it up, even though they spit you out.
Take it in, Take it in.
Living on the outside of your skin. (x8)
