Little lights
Are over exposing the highlight
Marks on the floor
When aligned right
Lead to the door of a place that
Seemed somewhat exposed till now

I'm back
And punching the air
A sneak attack
To disrupt the smear on the laid tracks
I left when I broke off the pavement
I still should be on I suppose

In a new skin I'm ready to spill
What I'm never willing to share
I disable the muscles and bones
So they won't try
To walk on the road

Now I stand here
Nothing to hide like the new born
Hungry and wild
But the ground I want to explore
Doesn't feel like before

Cause all I think about is why
The skin I'm in feels ordinary
The things that you might like
Don't grow inside of me

The skin's alive; it's leaving!
The skin's alive; it's moving!
The skin's alive; it's leaving!
The skin's alive; it moves me

I want to be next to you
While you're covering, covering is soft
And I try to crawl up next to you
Your covering becomes leather

Cause all I think about is why
The skin I'm in feels ordinary
The things that you might like
Don't grow inside of me

The skin's alive; it's leaving!
The skin's alive; it's moving!
The skin's alive; it's leaving!
The skin's alive; it moves me

    Skin graph is the delicate mask we might use to cover ourselves, in order to pretend we are someone else. But the personality we take on my have its own agendas, might take on a life of its own. People might fall in love with the mask and not the wearer.

    Its about who you are that isolates you from the rest, a part of you that screams and makes you adamant. Follow me on twitter @headbalisser

    Anyone else find this song by watching the secret circle?
    By the way; i think it means that when wwere faced with diffficult parts of our lives, we cover ourselves up and put on a new skin. We become the person we invent and act ourselves out through the actions this version of ourselves is imagined to be. This separation of what you really are from what you are showing the world of yourself is what is pain growing inside.
