KMFDM – Secret Skin lyrics

This is the greasy rope

The broken wreck

I see the twisted hope strung around your neck

This hopeless dream
This sordid stream
I whisper once again praying for the end

Your secret skin can't hide your shame
Your secret skin will shelter me

Your secret skin will smell of me
Your secret skin can't hide your name

Sin s** & Salvation

Once more obey the bloody fist

Once more betrayed by your open wrist
One more rusty nail a sordid crime

One more spreading stain upon you shrine

Once more obey this bloody fist
Betray your open bloody wrist

One rusty nail one sordid crime
The spreading stain upon your shrine
