"Skin" as written by and Danny Elfman....
I decide,
Never to play with truth again,
I reveal,
Never to be so cruel again,
And all the games you played with me,
You bound my heart and set me free,
You bound my feet and let me go,
And I don't know.

We are like sheep,
Waiting for the slaughter,
We crawl and we creep,
We can't hear their laughter,
A passionate game I played with you,
Skip the fear and gave the fool,
I can sense this deep within,
Underneath my skin.

You say,
All this appears new to you,
I won't stay,
Even if you want me to,
I know that I have played with chance,
Never mine to fail again,
Feel the pressure deep within,
Underneath my skin.

    General CommentI'm sorry but those lyrics aren't completely correct:

    I decide
    Never to play with truth again
    I reveal
    Never to be so cruel again
    A noble game you played with me
    You bound my heart and set me free
    You bound my feet and let me go
    And I don't know

    We are like sheep
    Waiting for the slaughter
    We crawl and we creep
    We can't hear their laughter
    A passionate game I played with you
    Skip the fear and gave the fool
    I can sense this deep within
    Underneath my skin
    (Underneath my)

    You say
    All this appears new to you
    I won't stay
    Even if you want me to
    I know that I have played with them
    Never mind to fail again
    Feel the pressure deep within
    Underneath my skin


    This song doesn't need interpretation, imo.
    It would be like interpreting Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
    While a great song, no complexity.
