Can you see the line where the water ends?
Throws itself off into oblivion
As the sky grows so complacent,
then spits a little compassion
Dusk approaches the city’s carnivorous
Monsters sweat like it wants to eat us
And devour everything but this mouth
Sings of the glorious fetus

Tucked deep inside the wraths of blood

Everywhere it seems like there’s a memory
Sometimes memories kill me
As I travel the avenues and the streets
And shadow valleys of this fuckin’ city
Everyday it seem to love a little less
Seem to love to chew on my calmness
And drive me to the end of my self
Where ravens dispose of me

You’re like a man without skin
Everything that touches seems to hurt him
And he says maybe I’m just a person
But I’ll bleed for you if you let me

All I want is animals to be free
Run around and fuck around in the street
Maybe they are gonna want to eat me
But I’ll try not to take it personally
And is there no love in this city
Can someone have just a little pity?

You’re like a man without skin
Everything that touches seems to hurt him
And he says maybe I’m just a person
But I’ll bleed for you if you let me

Just like a man without skin
Everything he sees seems to touch him
And he says, as the water washes over me
I’ll stand alone like I'm naked too

Come on baby
Penetrate me
You go so deep
So deep in me

Is there no love in this city?
Can someone have just a little pity?

Cause we’re tucked deep inside the wraths of blood
We’re tucked so deep inside the wraths of blood

You’re like a man without skin
Everything that touches seems to hurt him
And he says maybe I’m just a person
But I’ll bleed for you if you let me

Just like a man without skin
Everything he sees seems to touch him
And he says as the water washes over me
I’ll stand alone like I'm naked too

Penetrate me
Penetrate me

Can you see the line where the water ends?
throws itself off into oblivion
As the sky grows so complacent
Then spits a little compassion

    General CommentThis song is about someone who's lived a very sheltered life... at least, thats what I think it's about.

    General CommentAnother awesome song by boy hits car. I've checked around at different sites, and it seems theres some dispute over the lyrics. Frankly i dont think it matters too much, because some parts wouldnt make much sense either way, but still a cool song, thats just their style. from what i do understand of this song i think its pretty cool, "sometimes, memories kills me"
    Sometimes i feel like "I'm a Cloud, without skin"

    General Comment"everywhere it seems that theres a memory, sometimes memories kill me" i LOVE that part. its so great. its very true too. if you were in a relationship with someone for a long time, (friendship, or boyfriend/girlfriend), and maybe when it ends... there are memories everywhere. you might go somewhere or see something or find something and think about that person and think about what they had to do with that something. like maybe you went there with them, or they bought you this, and it may hurt... to remember things... "sometimes memories kill me" well at least thats what i think that part means... oh well, this song rules.

    General Commentman without skin describes the simple ways people can get hurt, some people have tough skin and dont give a shit, but this particular guy doesnt have any, and everything that is said and done to him hurts him in one way or another. i think thismakes him quite lonely also "And is there no love in this city?
    Can someone have just a little pity?" because of his fragility he is doomed to wonder the streets alone looking for pity and love. while the "ravens", bullys and such, pick on him because they know he is fragile. im not quite sure what the rafts of blood are supposed to mean though.

    General CommentIts about being over sensitive, everything hurts... A Man Without Skin is someone that would get hurt if somebody didn't talk to them, and stuff... This song has described me some times. Cause in a time of need I was stepped on and stepped on, then after that someone kept saying things to me that just made me want to commit suicide. Man Without Skin is what I refer to myself some times.
