Skin Tab

by Alexz Johnson

I drift away to a place.

Another kind of life.

To take away the pain 
I create my paradise. 
Everything I've held, has hit the wall. 
What used to be yours, isn't yours at all. 

Falling apart, and all that I'm asking. 

Is it a crime, am I overreacting?

Chorus::Oh, he's under my skin
Just give me something to get rid of him
I got a reason to bury this alive
Another little white lie

What you had didn't fit

among the pretty things.

But never fear, never fear.
I now know where you've been.

Braids have been un-tied.

Ribbons fall away,

Leave the consequence.
But my tears you'll taste.

Falling apart and all that I'm asking

Is this a dream, or is this my lesson?


I don't believe I'll be alright

I don't believe I'll be ok
I don't believe how you could throw me away

I do believe you didn't try

I do blame you for every lie
When I look into your eyes, I don't see mine...


Oh, my permission to sin
You might have started my reckoning
I got a reason now to bury him alive
Another little white lie...
