When I come in and I'm tired and I've forgotten myself
It's like I'm still wired to the outside
And I put up walls a little each day to give myself space
When every day I'm losing sense and I'm losing my taste

Can you change all that
Just by walking in
Take the knives out of my back
Peel away my old skin

When I come in from a long day and the world won't stop
And it won't stop spinning till I get off
I try to find something to hold myself up
When in every way I'm losing strength a little each day

Can you change all that
Just by walking in
Take the knives out of my back
Peel away my old skin

Mmm, you can change all that
Just by walking in

When it gets dark at four and the day gives up
And it feels like I've been dragged through a graveyard
And I'm stuck here in this tiny box with the lid nailed on
When every day disappears but they all feel lost

Can you change all that
Just by walking in
Take the knives out of my back
Peel away my old skin

Mmm, you can change all that
Just by walking in
Walking in
My old skin
