Paint yourself a picture
Of what you wish you looked like
Mayby then they just might
Feel an ounce of your pain

Come into focus
Step out of the shadows
It's a losing battle
There's no need to be ashamed

Cause they don't even know you
All they see is scars
They don't see the angel
Living in your heart


Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you got
That you are not
You are not, your skin

Oh (X2)

When they start to judge you
Show them your true colors
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you

Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blindness
They're the ones that stand to lose

Cause they don't even know you
All they see is scars
They don't see the angel
Living in your heart

Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you got
That you are not your skin

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Well they don't even know you
All they see is scars
They don't see the angels
Living in your heart

Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you got
That you are not
That you are not your skin

Oh (X2)

    Its just about how people judge you without ever knowing your story, your pain. They just see your skin (outside apearance) and dont care about whats inside. But make judgements on how you look. And sixx am is saying no matter how you are on the outisde if you treat others kindly ,that your skin doesnt matter and your beautiful. The inside is the real you and changes who the monster and whos the man. Whos the beautiful ones and whos the ugly ones

    Its not the official music video but it still relates to the song. You may find it disturbing but they are people, what you saw was just their skin.

    Really i think the meaning is that no one knows who you really are, and theres maybe just a few people who have got an idea who you are but maybe the song was aimed at someone he knows saying let people know you and they'll love you, not the outside you that everyone thinks you are... Lol hard to explain but that's what i think, my friend let me hear it and she said that the lyrics describe me really well... And i was like what?! So i listened to it and i was amazed at how beautiful it was :3 x

    My meaning for this is that it's someone who cuts themselves, and that's where the scars come in. I personally have been through this pain, i used to cut, and people at my school found out, they started hating me and said i was trying to kill myself. I cry every time i hear this song. :)

    That we cant let people judge us by our pasts, because we don't live there anymore. And that people can change, so go show the world who u really are, beneath it all. Express ur feelings nd live ur dreams. Its that wave of energy that runs through us all, that makes us so distinctively unique. Beneath it all, beneath ur skin, youre you.
