Shed My Skin

Shed my skin I shed my skin
I'm crawling out from deep within
It's so good to move on from here .
Shed my skin I shed my skin
from inside out and outside in
there is nothing left to fear .
‘cause I'm the joker in this house of cards,
I did it all , the whole nine yards
these fragile walls start to shake.
As I race across this city bridge
the skyline shifts and starts to give
and I'm already drunk at the wake

Shed my skin, I shed my skin
Breathing out and diving in
where shapes conform to my ideas
Shed my skin, I shed my skin
Breaking out and crashing in
through these cracked mirrors of my fears.
Out from this old world I know
deep down below I go
into the bloody maze.
While up above the building dance
and melt beneath the waves of chance.
A sweeping sunset is ablaze

So, shed your skin, shed your skin
your interest in this world I'm in.
Now's the time to speak.
Shed your skin , shed your skin
the danger comes from within
not the illusions that we seek.
In this self defeating web we weaved
no one here is deceived
by what we seek to prove,
and the fragile, sweet, and subtle loss
beneath the cracked and peeling gloss
still remains unmoved
