Zola Jesus – Skin lyrics

Safety net, don't hold me now
In this hole I've fallen down
Secret home I made and found
And you wait to breathe

Skin of all, skin of all
I've had enough, ooh ohh
Skin of all
And in the sickness, you have faith
And in the thickness you find me
Finally
In the city, you find pain
And the people you see there
That remind you of your role
Let me go

Skin of all, skin of all
I've had enough, ooh ooh
Skin of all
And in the sickness, you have faith
And in the thickness you find me
Finally, finally
That's what they say
Finally

    I just discovered this song on season 3 of Being Human. Amazing song. Great voice. Great writing. Has multiple layers of meaning. The writer grew up in a freezing cold state and her father was a hunter who exposed her to the gruesome act of hunting her whole life. She was alone and isolated much of her childhood so this really shaped her artistically. So the lyrics express the gruesome aspect of seeing dead animals all the time. Heads and corpses of animals. She experienced the brutality of killing animals and now she uses it in her writing as a metaphor of how cold unfeeling and brutal city life is since everyone is alone and unable to experience the folks often millions of people around them.
