Machinae Supremacy – Skin lyrics

In the corner of your eye
I can see into your mind
A shadow beneath your smile
Something hidden deep inside
Silently you wait for someone to see you

Claw your flesh from off your bones
Face that fire on your own
Embrace the life you thought that you could never know
Can't erase the pain inside without a storm within
They left the lies like scars underneath your skin
The one your hiding in, the one you're supposed to live in

And you gaze up at the sky
As the clouds are passing by
And you wonder for a while
What it would be like to die
Silently you wish for someone to save you

Claw your flesh from off your bones
Face that fire on your own
Embrace the life you thought that you could never know
Can't erase the pain inside without a storm within
They left their lies like scars underneath your skin
The one you're hiding in, the one you're supposed to live in

But you want to be alive
As the self-loathing subsides
And you will not be denied
So you push their lies aside
Violently you burn for someone to feel you

Claw your flesh from off your bones
Face that fire on your own
Embrace the life you thought that you could never know
Can't erase the pain inside without a storm within
They left their lies like scars underneath your skin
The one your hiding in, the one you're supposed to live in

    Child abuse has serious long-lasting effects, usually hidden under a skin of apparent normality.
    The lies: The parent is permitted to beat their child. The child is evil. The parent is always right. The child is guilty. No one wants you to show your feelings. You must no cry. Parent + child outside is different than inside their home. Child's body belongs to parent. If parent praises you outside, parent is lying to protect you and will punish you later.
    Lies like scars, but hidden inside. PTSD, sociophobia, depression and suicide grow on those scars, the cause hidden within the subconscious, implicit memory. Healing that damage and distortion necessitates to eviscerate and regrow the child's personality within the adult heart and mind, yet some scars remain, invisible but burning.

    This song caught me by surprise while underway, I had to stop and cry and scream in anger. Thanks for this masterwork, M.S. !
