Lyric "Salt Skin"

[Verse 1]
You're as sharp as a knife and you fit like a glove
That is no way to live, that is no way to love
Full of fear in your skin and the weakness in giving in

You're stabbed in the back, but you feel no pain
Push the heaviest doors that you can't open
Yeah they tied me up and my body lies still again

You're as bright as the sun and as bold as the moon
I don't know when you'll break, but it's going to be soon
If I will cave in, I'll be in the same boat as you

[Chorus]
I've got the salt skin, running to where he is
Never going to give in, even with the strength
He's stealing salt skin
Telling me I'm winning wars they created
Just to understand... "the meaning of"

[Verse 2]
Hands on strings and my mouth open
Find the perfect words that I've not spoken
And I won't tell the truth, unless you want me to
For all of the time that I lost my head
When it rolled to the floor and I found it again
But when it came back
No, I didn't know my own name

[Chorus (3x)]
I've got the salt skin, running to where he is
Never going to give in, even with the strength
He's stealing salt skin
Telling me I'm winning wars they created
Just to understand... "the meaning of"
