Her daddy raped her when she was 8 years old
His selfish action took a piece of her soul
She would thank him when she learned how to drive
Took some gasoline and burned him alive
Went to LA so she could be a star
But prostitution didn't get her so far
Her daddy's face on every John
So, she went out and she bought her a gun

Oh, within her skin
Oh, within her skin

She had enough and couldn't take any more
What would she be, a murderer or a whore?
No fire down in hell below
Could match the pain of the life she had known
She killed so many that she couldn't keep count
Her life had fucked her but she found a way out
It gave her power that she'd never had
And murder paid more than the fuck ever did

Oh, within her skin
Oh, within her skin

She found a power that was hers alone
She found a way to stop the pain
She found a way to make her life her own
She found a channel for her rage!

Oh, within her skin
Oh, within her skin

She walks the streets with her pimps on the sly
But her past she has left far behind
Nobody's gonna stop her now
Even if they could somehow
So, take a look deep inside yourself
You're no better than anyone else
And if you should look her way
You won't live to see another day

Oh, within her skin
Oh, within her skin

Little runaway, don't cry
There's so much more time to kill
Time to kill
Little runaway, don't cry
There's so much more time to kill
Time to kill

Oh, within her skin
Oh, within her skin
Oh, within her skin
Oh, within her skin
