Lyrics (Second Skin + Samsara)

‘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,

Built high enough to feel no pain.

I will begin again.

I will free this 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.

Everything you bought and sold.

A cage we made,

To confine ourselves.

 

Finding fault,

Only leads to blame.

A collision course of the mind,

Built high enough, to feel no pain.

I will begin again.

I will flee this skin.

 

Was it the symptom,

Or the cure?

Did these feelings condemn you,

Or control.



 

‘SAMSARA’

I have seen the writing on the wall,

For too long.

Beneath the glue that binds.

Hides a hole where we once sewed,

This lifeline.

Another chance to shine.

 

Words mocked a history,

We can no longer pretend to believe in.

A light inside becomes a cycle within,

Free from all doubt.
