You're as sharp as a knife and you fit like a glove
That is no way to live that is no way to love
Full of fear in your skin and the weakness in giving in
Stabbed in the back but you feel no pain
Push the heaviest doors that you can't open
Yeah they tied me up and my body lies still, again

You're as bright as the sun and as bold as the moon
I don't know when you'll break but it's gonna be soon
If my will caves in, I'll be in teh same boat as you

I've got the salt skin
Running to where he is
Never going to give in
Even with the stength
He's stealing salt skin
Telling me I'm winning wars they created just to understand...
"the meaning of"

Hands on strings and my mouth open
Find the perfect words that I've not spoken
And I won't tell the truth unless you want me to

For all of the times that I lost my head
When it rolled to the floor and I found it again
But when it came back,
I didn't know my own name

I've got the salt skin
Running to where he is
Never going to give in
Even with the strength
He's stealing salt skin
Telling me I'm winning wars they created just to understand...
"the meaning of"

I've got the salt skin
Running to where he is
Never going to give in
Even with the strength
He's stealing salt skin
Telling me I'm winning wars they created just to understand...
"the meaning of"

I've got the salt skin
Running to where heis
Never going to give in
Even with the strength
He's stealing salt skin
Telling me I'm winning wars they created just to understand...
"the meaning of"
