"Leathers" as written by and Chino Camilo Moreno Abe Cunningham....
This is
Your chance revolt, resist!
Open your chest, look down, reach in.

Shedding your skin,
Showing your texture.
Time to let everything inside show.
You're cutting all ties
Now and forever, time to let
Everything outside you

This is
Your test come forth, confess!
Extend your tongue, speak out, go on

Shedding your skin,
Showing your texture.
Time to let everything inside show.
You're cutting all ties
Now and forever, time to let
Everything outside you
Shed your casing, show your lines
And shapes

Wear your insides, on the outside,
Show your enemy, what you look like
What you look like
What you look like
From the inside
From the inside

?
Now and forever
Time to die

Shedding your skin,
Showing your texture.
Time to let everything inside show.
You're cutting all ties
Now and forever, time to let
Everything outside you
Shed your casing, show your lines
And shapes

Wear your insides, on the outside,
Show your enemy, what you look like
What you look like
What you look like
From the inside
From the inside

    My InterpretationThis song has one of the most explosions of awesomeness on the entire album, right around the 2:56 mark, just melts your face.

    But yeah, this is about having being your true self around others, but at the same time having a thick skin, like leather. You're cutting all ties, now and forever, so you're free to be yourself. Being up front showing even your enemy who you are. It's a call to be genuine.

    Song Meaningawesome song, can't wait for the full album to be released.

    I reckon this song is about a person who is entering a relationship and therefor has to open itself to that other person.
    So no more individual life, where you are keeping everything inside you, good or bad. When you decide to be with someone, you have to let that other person into your life and reveal to her who you really are. Good and bad

    Song MeaningI think Morodrim more or less has this. Except I think it may actually be more about the crowd. We don't all get to be ourselves in our daily lives. But when you go to a Deftones concert, it's Chino's call for you to take action. It's like he's telling a crowd, tonight is your chance to let everything inside of yourselves out in a public manner.

    General CommentI think its a revelation of reality... Extending beyond the beginning of a relationship, much like the middle of a show or a mixtape...
    We've shown our teeth and our strength a little at the beginning, but now the honeymoon's over... time to get real.
    Like, when the Deftones start up Dai the Flu and you know the crowd loves the song, but the guy next to you gets as utterly pumped as you do, cos its both your favorite song... new friends.
    Getting real. Connections. Leather strong...
