Skin lyrics

This is someone else's story

Someone that I never knew

This is someone else's body

Am I getting through to you

If you peel away the armor is something underneath

If you look below for hidden treasure underneath another layer

Are you hiding underneath the skin



If you peel away the skin is there anybody there

If you peel away the skin is there anybody there

If you peel away the armor is it too late to begin

Is there anybody hiding if you peel away the skin



Now a spark has passed between us now

A momentary recognition

Something lost and something gained

And something shared that feels strange

Something cold that will not go away



There's a heart as cold as ice

In a vault that's made of stone

Over years the walls got higher

Over years the walls have grown



Is there anybody in there in this self inflicted tomb

If you peel away the layers is there someone in this room

If you peel away the skin, if you peel away the skin



This is someone else's story

Someone that I never knew

This is someone else's body

Am I getting through to you



If you peel away the layers is there anybody there

If you peel away the armor is something underneath

If you look below for hidden treasure underneath another layer

Are you hiding underneath the skin
