Listen to Yourself (Skin)

You’re talking In circles The words spit out your head They blind you With emotion that’s plain dead There wet sheets Sex sodden Mind spent and ill at ease You mirror Screams out this dark release Cos only you can be your help So darling listen Listen to yourself Cos only you can tame your hell So darling listen Listen to yourself You know truth But deny it Too scared to make a break Pure feeling Just squandered in your wake Don’t tell me Your virtues Then run the same lame strife To tiring These excerpts of your life
