"Second Skin" as written by and Matt Dresdner Mia Zapata....
I've thought about it a million times before it takes all my strength just to keep it calm i love to tell myself,just let it breath holding it inside will only help to keep me in each time i close my eyes i see another chain it's one i cant forget,something i cannot break out of i need a second skin,something to hold me up cant seem to get out of this hole ive dug my self right back in just to wake up tells me i must be brave it hiits me like a drug shot into my veins its not as delightful of a pain,immobolizing me almost makes me think im dead i need a second skin something to hold me tough cant do it on my own i want that chance to give every drop thats left in me i need a second skin something i cannot break out of i tell myself just let it breath its a calmness im always searching for but the dirt it gets so heavy it falls above my head seeping from under my feet it just keeps on getting deeper i need a second skin sopmething to hold me tough cant do it on my own sometimes i need just a little more help ive got that chance to give every drop thats left in me i need a second skin something i cannot break free of though no one ever said i'd be easy still ones left to deny the choice that comes between your willingness to survive though your knowing what you stand up against a world set to decieve you need a special strength i've got that second skin i've got that chance to give i've got the only way that i know how to live with it i need a second skin something to hold me tough i need a second skin,something i cannot break out of

    General CommentIt jumped out at me when I studied the song a bit. She speaks of desperately wanting a second skin, which is probably the aid of another person or a stronger will. Then at the end it sounds like she was speaking of being a second skin for someone else. "I've Got that Chance to Give" Its like, I'll be your anchor...but I know I need someone to help hold me down as well. The way Mia sang the song really got that frustration across. Waking up and knowing you have to face the same crap. You know its overwhelming you and you know if you're gonna survive you need to get stronger. With or without the help of another. Damn...good song.
