It's a long while now following
That hunter, that stalker, that burden
Can't remember time it hasn't been
Slinging that web or dragging that net

The beast resides behind the thin skin
Behind the thin skin, behind the thin skin
The beast resides behind the thin skin
How come nobody can see it?
When you meet it, someday you can
Turn it away, turn it away, turn it away
When you meet it, someday you can
Turn it away or invite it in to stay

In the evening as the day is through
No thoughts in the head but of the rain on the roof
Something hovers as the stale air
Can't smell it, but can tell that it's there

Melt the mask down
To soft places like snow banks receding
Even sink and decay
Spring mountain, naked spine
Cover is blown, scarlet shine

The beast resides behind the thin skin
Behind the thin skin, behind the thin skin
The beast resides behind the thin skin
How come nobody can see it?
If you meet it, someday you can
Turn it away, turn it away, turn it away
If you meet it, someday you can
Turn it away or invite it in to stay

Better you turn or to take your place
Stare into those eyes, look upon that face
Tear at the flesh, peer in at the core
[??] or you'll be no more
