I've thought about it hell about a million times
It takes all my strength just to keep it calm
I have to tell myself it's there just to breathe
Holding it inside will only help to do me in

Each time I close my eyes I see another chain
It's one I can't forget something I cannot break out of
I need a second skin something to hold me up
Can't seem to get out of this hole I've dug myself right back in

Just to wake up tells me hell I must be brave
It hits me like a drug shot into my vein
But it's not as delightful delightful of a pain
Immobilizing me almost makes me think I'm dead

I need a second skin something to hold me tough
Can't do it on my own sometimes I need just a little more help
I've got that chance to give every drop that's left in me
I need a second skin something I cannot break out of

I just tell myself girl just let it breathe
It's a calmness I'm always searching for
But the dirt it gets so heavy
It falls above my head seeping from under my feet
It just keeps on getting deeper

I need a second skin something to hold me up
Can't do it on my own sometimes I need just a little more help
I've got that chance to give every drop that's left in me
I need a second skin something I cannot break free of

Though no one ever said it'd be easy still one's left to deny
The choice that come between your willingness to survive
Though you're knowing what you stand up against
A world set to deceive you need a special strength

I've got that second skin I've got that chance to give
I've got the only way that I know how to live with it
I need a second skin something to hold me tough
I need a second skin something I cannot break out of
