"Skin Deep" as written by Aaron Montgomery, Peter Charell, Chris Brown and Simon Ormandy....
This attraction only to appearance
Becoming your religion looks are everything, the only thing that means something to you

Satisfaction only on the surface your eyes are always focused
Don't wanna let it show that there is no accept ion to the rule

So fill the empty space with another pretty face

Your skin deep skin deep
No one will ever be perfect in your eyes
Skin deep skin deep always scratching the surface for your prize

First impressions are over in an instant
You make your decision before you speak a word you end your search the page or any turn?
Every conquest filled with disappointment lacking any substance
now your out of words the lines are blur your never gonna learn

So fill the empty space with another pretty face

Skin deep skin deep no one will ever be perfect in your eyes
skin deep skin deep always scratching the surface for your prize [Repeat: x2]

Look all your life for beauty this fine
So rare, so hard to find
Look all your life for beauty this fine
No mind what's inside

Your skin deep skin deep no one will ever be perfect in your eyes
skin deep skin deep always scratching the surface for your prize [Repeat: x2]

    General CommentIt's quite clear it's about someone who looks for "love" strictly by physical characteristics. If someone isn't good-looking then they go, turn over another page.
    With my short experience with rock writing, I bet that the object of the song is a girl one of them knew and wanted to go out with but she always turned them down because they weren't hunks.

    General CommentI think its about someone that looks for love on the surface.


    And by surface I mean, what they see physically.


    Pretty Blunt.

    General CommentI think the song is about, quite obviously as others have said, someone who only looks for love based on looks.

    The line "So fill and empty space with another pretty face" suggests that when a relationship ends, they just go straight for another looker to fill the space.

    To the person who posted the lyrics -

    Learn the difference between "you're" and "your", it's annoying to find lyrics with such mistakes.

    It's "exception" not "acception".

    It's "only scratching the surface", not "always" in the chorus.

    I probably sound picky and harsh here, but I don't intend to be.

    Either way, this song is brilliant, along with the majority of Trapt's stuff.

    My Opinionpersonally i think it could also pertain to society or hollywood and fame... like looks are all that matters...

    i mean most people who have eating disorders thinking they NEED to b skinny or LOOK a certain way to get by... like to find/keep a guy or to get their dream guy.
