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.

    I'm new to the six a.m's songs yet this song hit a nerve in a good way. Too many people make their decisions about others by taking one look at them and deciding the know everything about them.

    I think maybe it's about self-harm and how people are judging you because of the scars on your body but that's not who you really are.

    "they dont even know you all they see is scars" its talking about cutting yourself. People dont know you... Then they see the cuts and judge you. Thats just an example... But if you listen to it it makes total sence
