Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling
I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
That there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distracting, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
That there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing, confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming (confusing what is real)
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling (confusing what is real)

    General CommentThis song is awesome because it tells you a story that someone else has already been through and how it totally changed them as a person. It changed how they feel about themselves, it's changed how they look at themselves in the mirror, it's changed how others look at them. It has changed some of the key points about that person; as the song goes on, it tells how they person doesn't know what to do with themselves because they're such a total mess and no one wants to be seen with them. It also tells the untold stories of those people who never spoke up about how they've been treated by other people and by themselves. Those are the reasons I absolutely love this song and this band.
