Thickskin Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. New Generation (3:18)
I sold my soul for you
You cut my life in two
Nightmares from what I've seen and where I've been
Made me run from you again

Controlling, big brother's eye
Containment? I'd rather die

We're all part of a new generation
Sold our souls to the next temptation
Lead us not to our own damnation

I've seen what hatred brings
I've seen the flesh of kings
Blinded my eyes my mouth you've sewn it shut
Protecting me from fucking up!

Controlling, big brother's eye
Containment? I'd rather die

We're all part of a new generation
Sold our souls to the next temptation
Lead us not to our own damnation

We're all part of a new generation
Sold our souls to the next temptation
Lead us not to our own damnation

We're all part of a new generation
Sold our souls to the next temptation
Lead us not to our own damnation

We're all part of a new generation
Sold our souls to the next temptation
Lead us not to our own damnation

New generation
New generation
New generation
2. Ghost (3:53)
I feel the things I said
But never said how I felt
I know I waited much too long
Could I get it in your head
Without a head full of doubt
Looking back it seems that I
Went about it all wrong

Lying alone in the bed we made
Watching headlights on the shades
The ghosts that sleeping by your side
Are my promises to you that died
To you that died

Wasn't long ago
when forever was our friend
But now freedom's what I feel inside
It hurts so much to let you go
To know we'll never touch again
When I walk if I fall down
Can I take it in stride

Lying alone in the bed we made
Watching headlights on the shades
The ghosts that sleeping by your side
Are my promises to you that died
To you that died

I might let you go, but i'll never go away
I might let you go, but i'll never go away...yeah

I feel the things I said
But never said how I felt
I know I waited much too long

Lying alone in the bed we made
Watching headlights on the shades
The ghosts that sleeping by your side
Are my promises that died

Lying alone in the bed we made
Watching headlights on the shades
The ghosts that sleeping by your side
Are my promises that died
To you that died
To you that died
3. Swallow Me (The Real You) (3:38)
Everything's changed
All ties are strained...to say the least
Concepts deranged

It's just the way I see you
I only see the real you

You can't swallow me
I'm jagged as the pill you choke on
You can't swallow me
As long as I can see the real you

I can't be blamed
To feel this way no more
Everything's changed

It's just the way I see you
I only see the real you

You can't swallow me
I'm jagged as the pill you choke on
You can't swallow me
As long as I can see the real you
The real you
The real you

I won't let you pull me down
I got my shit together now
I won't let you pull me down
I got my shit together

It's just the way I see you
I only see the real you

You can't swallow me
I'm jagged as the pill you choke on
You can't swallow me
As long as I can see

Everything's changed
All ties are strained (to say the least)
Everything's change
4. Born a Beggar (4:27)
As the day breaks through the doorway
And i'm still chained to this house
But you call me and I follow
And act like i'm so proud
Still reading the sidewalk
And it smells like morning news
And I don't know, why I still can't
Seem to pull away from you

Watch the window
Time means nothing
Watch the window
'Til I see you coming

Born a beggar
Will you ever
See me more than Pavlov's hungry dog
See no colours
Live another
Day to feed on everything you are...and you are

When the day sleeps and the sunshine
No longer burns my eyes
And the sound of your footsteps
Is the only thing that lies
Between me and the feeling
That life fills these four walls
That cage me completely
Just waiting on your call

Watch the window
Time means nothing
Watch the window
'Til I see you coming

Born a beggar
Will you ever
See me more than Pavlov's hungry dog
See no colours
Live another
Day to feed on everything you are
On everything you are

I run for you
A fall so hard
My secrets are buried in the yard

Born a beggar
Will you ever
See me more than Pavlov's hungry dog
See no colours
Live another
Day to feed on everything you are

Born a beggar
Will you ever
See me more than Pavlov's hungry dog
See no colours
Live another
Day to feed on everything you are

On everything you are
On everything you are
On everything you are
5. Thick Is the Skin (3:47)
Eightball, hanging overhead
Flushed out like Frankenstein
One more, for the living dead
That's not, me this time

Knocked down, I've been down before
Yet still we bare the load
If I would, want it anymore
I just might explode

All your heroes have died and left you to
Rise from the ashes and live for today

Can you take it all
When we're standing tall
We don't need a wall, built around us
Jump into the flame
One and all the same
We won't feel the pain
Thick is the skin, thick is the skin - yeah!

Outside, still looking in
I'll keep what I've made mine
Timebomb strapped to my chin
Step down or fall in line

All your heroes have died and left you to
Rise from the ashes and live for today

Can you take it all
When we're standing tall
We don't need a wall, built around us
Jump into the flame
One and all the same
We won't feel the pain
Thick is the skin, thick is the skin - yeah!

Hey [x15]

[Solo]

Can you take it all
When we're standing tall
We don't need a wall, built around us
Jump into the flame
One and all the same
We won't feel the pain
Thick is the skin

Can you take it all
When we're standing tall
We don't need a wall, built around us
Jump into the flame
One and all the same
We won't feel the pain
Thick is the skin, thick is the skin
Thick is the skin, thick is the skin - yeah!

Hey [x15]
6. See You Around (4:18)
I never promised you the sunshine
You never handed me the moon
We're pulling threads out of our faded silver lining
We've grown out of our cocoon

The last train is leaving
There's nothing more than I can say
I didn't mean to bring you down
I guess i'll see you around

I left the best of my intentions
Took it one day at a time
It's not like all is lost or that the world is ending
We've just fallen from divine

The last train is leaving
There's nothing more than I can say
I didn't mean to bring you down
I guess i'll see you around
Will I see you around

Whatever direction we go
Rest assured the one thing we know
Things just didn't really go our way

It's not like all is lost or that the world is ending
We've just fallen from divine

The last train is leaving
There's nothing more than I can say
I didn't mean to bring you down

The last train is leaving
There's nothing more than I can say
I didn't mean to bring you down
I guess i'll see you around
Will I see you around
7. Mouth of Voodoo (4:26)
You're testing my patience
I've got nothing but time
You'll never break down
The walls in my mind

Your fetishes are nothing more than a game
When I truly test your threshold of pain
Let me be in you ceremony
Burn me in your ritual
I can rise with you below me
We'll walk in time as we fall into the mouth of voodoo

Then we can shine, shine, shine
And I'm sure the sun won't mind
Then we can shine, shine, shine - oh yeah!

Your love is so blinding
My lust is a curse
It's painful to wonder but waiting is worse
You're sticking your pins now
It's taking it's toll
Crush and obsession leave scars on your soul

Let me be in you ceremony
Burn me in your ritual
I can rise with you below me
We'll walk in time as we fall into the mouth of voodoo

Then we can shine, shine, shine
And I'm sure the sun won't mind
Then we can shine, shine, shine - oh yeah!

[Solo]

Let me be in you ceremony
Burn me in your ritual
I can rise with you below me
We'll walk in time as we fall into the mouth of voodoo

Then we can shine, shine, shine
And I'm sure the sun won't mind
Then we can shine, shine, shine

Then we can shine, shine, shine
I'm sure the sun won't mind - yeah!
Then we can shine, shine, shine
Then we can shine, shine, shine - oh yeah!

Oh, oh, oh...
8. One Light (4:07)
There's a sound in my head
Holy wine, breakin' bread
between time and what we said
drifts the innocence we've shed

In this moment there's a day
for a sad and broken babe
there's a fracture on this hallowed ground where we lay

One light burns, one light fades
Behind the door are better days
When the light shines on me
I'll know the world still turns
One light burns, one light burns

There's a prayer on the wall
One by one say them all
Why we run before we crawl
Stands the reason that we fall
In the flower there's a field
Sublime but so surreal
There's a fracture on this sacred ground to be healed

One light burns, one light fades
Behind the door are better days
When the light shines on me
I'll know the world still turns
One light burns, one light burns
One light burns

[Solo]

One light burns, one light fades
Behind the door are better days
When the light shines on me
I'll know the world still turns

One light burns, one light fades
Behind the door are better days
When the light shines on me
I'll know the world still turns

One light burns, one light fades
Behind the door are better days
When the light shines on me
I'll know the world still turns

One light burns (one light burns..)
One light burns (one light burns..)
One light burns (one light burns..)
One light burns (one light burns..)
9. I Remember You Two (3:20)
Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
The wind would whisper and I'd think of you
And all the tears you cried, that called my name
But when you needed me I came through
And when you needed me I came through

Remember yesterday, walking hand in hand?
Love letter's innocence - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights, and every endless day
I wanna hear you say I remember you

I paint a picture of the days gone by
When love went blind but you would make me see
I'd stare a lifetime into your eyes
So that I knew that you were there for me
Time after time you were there for me

Remember yesterday, walking hand in hand?
Love letter's innocence - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights, and every endless day
I wanna hear you say I remember you

We've had our share of hard times
But that's the price we paid
And through it all we kept the promise that we made
I swear you'll never be lonely

Remember yesterday, walking hand in hand?
Love letter's innocence - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights, and every endless day
I wanna hear you say I remember you

Remember you
Remember you
Remember you
Remember you
Remember you
Remember you
You you you you you
1 2 3 4!
10. Lamb (3:40)
I have been here for so long
I've carried all the weight
'Til something pulls me underneath the tide
Climb to where the air is thin
so I can breathe again
Still it makes me wonder deep inside

Nothing's free
No one bleeds
We're all machines

Shadows of you sins are following you
When it sucks you in, it's swallowing you
King of the mountain, that's what I am
Everybody's someone else's sacrificial lamb

Space between the world and me defying gravity
'Til something pulls me closer to the ground
Drink the chemicals we spill
Our eye is on the kill
While hell is freezing over, over

Nothing's free
No one bleeds
We're all machines

Shadows of you sins are following you
When it sucks you in, it's swallowing you
King of the mountain, that's what I am
Everybody's someone else's sacrificial lamb

[Solo]

Shadows of you sins are following you
When it sucks you in, it's swallowing you
King of the mountain, that's what I am
Everybody's someone else's sacrificial..

Shadows of you sins are following you
When it sucks you in, it's swallowing you
King of the mountain, that's what I am
Everybody's someone else's sacrificial lamb

Lamb!!
Ahhh!!!!
11. Down from Underground (4:35)
Building shrines to gods you'll never know
Ppraying for rain, settling for snow
Spinning out of times to beats impaired
Do you know your name?
Do you even care?

Can you live your life
staring at the lights
Naked on the ice?
If it comes too fast, will you get it back
when it all goes black?

Down
Goin' down
Goin' down from
Down from underground

Icons that you hail are all mechanical
Feeling the pull
lost in the fold
Digging through a hole of discontent
What did you learn?
Or did you forget?

Can you live your life
staring at the lights
Naked on the ice?
If it comes too fast, will you get it back
when it all goes black?

Down
Goin' down
Goin' down from
Down from underground

And just what should real life be
Why don't you show me, the fiction of reality
The so called life that I see
And just what real life should be
Can't be what you have shown me

If it comes too fast, will you get it back
when it all goes black?

Down
Goin' down
Goin' down from
Down from underground

Down
Goin' down
Goin' down from
Down from underground
12. Hittin' a Wall (3:06)
Peel me like dead skin
Hate to the bone
I drag you through my field of thorns
And drop you like a stone

Hold me under water
Kick me to the curb
All my wolves are at your door
Take me at my word

Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Look at me and you're seeing a monster
You ain't seen it all

If you're almighty
Holier than thou
Seems we've got a discrepancy
We should solve it now

I've built a bigger mountain
Now you want it gone
If you expect to beat me down
Brother bring it on

Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Look at me and you're seeing a monster
You ain't seen it all

Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Look at me and you're seeing a monster
You ain't seen it all

You want to wrestle with my morals
You think there's something I can learn
You toss me out like an abortion
And I'm the one that fucking burns?

Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Look at me and you're seeing a monster
You ain't seen it all

Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Look at me and you're seeing a monster
You ain't seen it all

Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall - yeah!
Hittin' a wall, we're hittin' a wall

Ahh!!!
