Beneath the skin,
There's something living,
Something dying,
Something giving,
Something lying,
But it always seems to be trying,
For all it's own guilt, still denying,
Not knowing why I care,
Not understanding why it's there,
Never knowing who to be,
What to see,
Him or me,
Can't think a word or thought,
Can't remember what I was taught,
Double-edged lies,
To live a double-edged life,
Silent, mournful cries,
Full of inner strife,
Reach deep in yourself,
And force the outside in,
For the wars never stop,
Right beneath the skin.
