"Baby Skin Tattoo" as written by and David/pearce Usher....
I promised you delight and heaven opens
Come wage my holy war
Where every thought is sin
I've been meaning to remove my baby skin tattoo
And I meant to be more kind
Well maybe next time

If you come my way
If you come my way
If you come my way
We might feel the same
Consequence of rage
If you come my way

I caught you on the knees
My words aren't wasted
You'd love to be released without tasting it
And it's only if you bought what I have sold you
And if everything is fine well maybe next time

If you come way
If you come my way
If you come my way
We might feel the same
Consequence is rage
If you come my way

(This next verse is not on the recorded version but is found in the lyric book)
And if we go quiet if we can slip through
If I could only think only go unnoticed
If we hide the anger smolder inside
My time wait so quiet

Changed my face again so you'll forget me
Purified the skin it's just a covering
I've been meaning to remove my baby skin tattoo
And I meant to be more kind
And maybe next time
I'll be a friend
And next time they'll be the enemy
And you might find
What you might find
Maybe this time

If you come my way
If you come my way
If you come my way
We might feel the same
Consequence is rage
If you come my way

    General CommentIn case you haven't noticed, the middle section that originally appeared in the lyrics from the booklet has been omitted. I'll scream with joy if anyone can tell me why David never sings those lyrics! Generally, a lot of the lyrics from Moist's booklets are wrong, and I never went by them. I typed the lyrics by ear.

    General Commentdavid never sings those lyrics because he didn't think the song needed them.
    I only added them in when writing up the lyrics because they still hold the mood of the song.
    I felt that it would be better to add what was in the lyric book rather than what he does live, which is quite different from the book. Same for Ophelia, and a few others. But you changed them.

    General CommentThanks for that explanation! I never even noticed before I typed the lyrics that this whole section was in the booklet that had never been sung. It definitely does add to the song, though. I was mainly going for the most literal, correct lyrics, and as I earlier mentioned, NOT by the booklet. But if any one wants to know the unsung portion, I'll leave it.
