Lyrics-Parallel Lives LP

‘Second Skin’

The past is a skeleton,

carved in clay, in time constructed,

Only to fall away.

I buried old scars, over these miles,

that your words had laid.

Spoke in silence,

While I watched the world decay.


Was it the symptom,

Or the cure?

Did these feelings condemn you,

Or control.


Finding fault,

Only leads to blame.

A collision course of the mind, feel no pain

A collision course of the mind, feel no pain.


The past is a skeleton,

carved in clay, in time constructed,

Only to fall away.

I buried old scars, over these miles,

that your words had laid.

Spoke in silence,

While I watched the world decay.


Was it the symptom,

Or the cure?

Did these feelings condemn you,

Or control.


Finding fault,

Only leads to blame.

A collision course of the mind, feel no pain.

A collision course of the mind, feel no pain.
